No Time to Workout?

I am a busy girl!  I work a Full Time job in the business office of a family owned retail pharmacy, I teach Zumba classes 3 days a week, I do a lot of my own choreography for those classes, and I am a Beachbody Coach and help many people online throughout the day.  So sometimes, all that is left for me is a quick 30 minute workout.

That is one thing I LOVE about Beachbody!  They have found the right tools to getting in a GREAT workout in just 30 minutes, and continue to run with these theories and are seeing AMAZING results!  I myself have always been partial to Tabatas and Circuit-Style Workouts.  So Max 30 and 21 Day Fix for me are AMAZING!!!

But I also LOVE Tabata Workouts for precisely this reason! I even teach a 25 minute Tabata Class every Saturday morning immediately after a 35 Minute Zumba Class at Legacy Martial Arts in Quincy.  Many people don’t realize that they can do just that class if they really aren’t into dance.  Which is a foreign concept to me, but I know Ya’All are out there, and I forgive you! 😉

But here is just one example of the type of workouts we do –

TABATA

1

Jumping Jacks

&

Squated Fast Punches

2

Push Ups

&

Alternating Lunges

3

Standing Windmill Crunches

&

Sumo Squats

4

High Knee Jog or March

&

Speed Skaters

And here is a link to an awesome FREE Tabata timer –  http://www.tabatatimer.com

With Tabata training you exercise for 20 seconds then rest for 10 seconds, and repeat 8 times. This with a short preparation time before starting is a Tabata.  With this workout there is 4 Tabatas.  Alternate each set of 2 exercises for the whole tabata.  Take one minute rest between Tabatas, reset your timer and go to the next set of 2 exercises! 🙂
