Time to feel the burn with this lower body Tabata workout

Let those legs feel the burn! This crossfit style Tabata HIIT workout will get your legs and core working hard as you work through this hard Tabata workout.

Getting bored with your normal routine is normal. The same routines get tedious over time, your body gets used to the stimulus and well it’s time for a new challenge.

This lower body Tabata I’ve put together for you is perfect for shocking your body to do something different. I actually split it up into four Tabatas and finished with the one you see as a fifth to finish my clients off.

I challenge you to split it and make a 25 minute workout out of it and wait for the DOMS the next day, you’re welcome to curse me.  I won’t hold it against you, I promise.

You will need access to a gym or a few bits of equipment to do this Tabata routine. Such as a plyo box, kettlebells and a barbel or dumbbell for the overhead squats.

If you are new to Tabata training here’s what you need to know.

Tabata is done in just 4 minutes. Where you do 8 maximal bouts of exercise 20 seconds in duration split by a 10 second rest interval.
