As fun as it is to slam battle ropes, swing kettlebells, hoist heavyweights, there’s absolute power in Tabata Bodyweight Exercises for working up a killer burn using just your body. Think about it: If you’re 140 pounds, you’re pressing that much weight away from the floor every time you do a push-up.
When you’re using only your body weight as resistance, it’s pretty much impossible to cheat but easy to progress. These workout circuits incorporate total-body compound exercises designed, so you quickly build up some heat and engage your core almost every set.
Traditionally a Tabata workout is broken into 4 minutes rounds every 4 minutes following the same max-effort work format for 20 seconds followed by 10 seconds of complete rest repeated eight times. However, more exercises can be added to create a longer workout. The only adjustment you need to make to the format is to add a minute of rest between exercises.
