Tabata intervals are a great way to train both muscles and the cardiovascular system. Here’s how they work. Perform each exercise for 20 seconds getting in as many repetitions as you can as quickly as you can. Rest for 10 seconds. Do this 6 times for each exercise before moving on to the next one. They will make your muscles burn! Make sure you warmup up for 3-5 minutes before starting the workout. Also, make sure you’re using enough weight so that you’re muscles are tired by the end of the 20 seconds.
