Torch Fat and Build Muscle With the Tabata Workout — It's Only 20 Minutes
Nothing beats the Tabata protocol for making the most out of a short workout. It's a quick, effective, and highly structured form of interval training, and we use it in this workout to help burn calories and build muscle — in just 20 minutes. In each four-minute Tabata round, we mix two complementary exercises, so you can go strong and maintain good form for all your reps while putting in maximum effort. Bonus: you don't need any equipment for this workout, but we do recommend using a timer to help keep track of your time. Check out this Simple Interval Timer that you can download for free from the iTunes store.
