Tabata Workout Mixing Squats and Push-Ups

Tabata Mashup Workout: Squats and Push-Ups

Get ready to work your arms and legs with our latest Class FitSugar. Level 1 CrossFit trainer Shirley Brown has created a simple and effective workout combining two classic moves: the squat and the push-up. And the workout only takes eight minutes!

Using the Tabata interval format, we will do 20 seconds of push-ups, followed by a 10-second rest period, then 20 seconds of squats, and another 10-second rest. Alternating between the two moves, you will do eight rounds of each exercise. Press play when you're ready to get your sweat on.

I've done at least three different variation of tabata and I have to agree with the opening comments, it is good for strength training and does give a great workout. I would have to say I am a fan.
