It's so simple it works! I absolutely loved doing this Tabata HIIT workout.
It's summer here and we've had pretty good weather for the last couple of weeks, the gyms been hot, too hot for most but we're troopers and all it means is we need to work harder. Today I decided to finish off my routine with a quick Tabata HIIT, I was doing some snatches and decided to add then to a Tabata, I didn't want to do two weighted exercises, I wanted add something with a little speed. So squats it was.
Here's the Tabata HIIT for today.
Barbell Power Snatch
20 Seconds on. 10 Seconds off for 4 rounds.
If you can do barbell power snatches give them a go, enough weight to get the reps in. Then the speed in the Air Squats will help maintain a high heart rate for when you go back into the snatches.
If you've got more time on your hands I'd advise trying a whole 8 rounds of snatches just for fun. If the weights correct you'll love it! Maybe do a warm up set before you get into it to get a feel of the load.
Have fun with it!
