Tabata Squat

The Tabata interval is 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest for 8 intervals. Tabata score is the least number of reps performed in any of the eight intervals.

For example: start your timer (smart phones have tabata timer apps that really help- I have Gymboss for iPhone), do as many squats as possible for 20 seconds, then rest for 10 and write down your reps for the first interval, keep the clock running, when it hits 30 seconds start again until your clock hits 50 seconds, rest for 10 and write down your reps…… keep doing this for 8 intervals. Your score is your lowest number…..so keep those numbers high! BURN!! 😉
