I’ve been sipping on the CrossFit Kool-Aid for about a month and a half now, and I have to say… I love it! It’s all the moves I do at home and then some. Plus, I get to throw around heavier weight than what I have at home. Even with all the fun equipment and heavy weights, you can still translate any CrossFit workout to a home workout… that’s kind of the point of CrossFit… everyday functional moves.
Last night at Crossfit we did a tabata style workout four times! If you are familiar with tabata workouts, you know that even though they are only 4 minutes, they are the hardest four minutes you will ever experience… and we did 4 of those! The workout we did required a kettlebell, a medicine ball, and a TRX, but don’t you worry, I created a workout that you can do at home without any equipment!
Here’s how the tabata burnout workout goes… you’re going to set your Gymboss timers to 8 rounds of 20 seconds work and 10 seconds rest. Do one exercise for all 8 rounds before restarting your timers and moving on to the next exercise. So for example you’ll do 8 rounds of squats, then 8 rounds of push ups etc until you’ve done all 4 exercises. Take a 1 minute rest after completing the 8 rounds before moving on to the next exercise.
You can switch it up if you want to use equipment or do different exercises… pick your favorite 4 exercises and hit it hard!
Feel free to pin this workout so you can hit it again and again!
