12/8/21-Interval Training (Tabata)

Hello everyone! With the holiday season right around the corner, this month’s WOW’s is to add in more fitness during the holidays. It can be stressful shopping for gifts and planning for family, but just know at anytime, anywhere, you can add in exercise throughout the day.

This week’s WOW is to perform a quick interval training exercise, or tabata. Tabata is exercising for 20 seconds on, 10 seconds off for 2 minutes. It is a great way to quickly increase your heart rate in a short amount of time. You can add this tabata in when you are shopping for goods or when you have down time at home.

You can choose any exercise such as squats, push-ups, or jumping jacks. You can even switch it up and do a dance exercise! Below is an example of a tabata using squats. 20 seconds of squats followed by 10 seconds of rest for a total of 2 minutes.

Get those muscles moving during this holiday season!
