Tabata Bodyweight Exercises – My Quads Are On Fire!workout

Did you ask for the mother of all Tabata bodyweight workouts?

The one that makes you sing “my quads are on firrrre!” Where no equipment brings pain.

Well it doesn’t get better then these compound exercises the Squat and the Burpee.

The burpee is one of those exercises that when you hear it, part of you dies inside.

As a trainer I have a love hate relationship with them. I love them. My clients hate them. 

The workout: no equipment leg burning tabata wokout

  1. Squat Jumps
  2. Burpees

20 seconds of squats followed by 10 seconds of rest. 20 seconds of Burpees followed by 10 seconds of rest. Repeat four times for a total of four minutes. 


If you cant do squat jumps change to a weighted squat or bodyweight squat with a calf raise.  

Feeling brave? To make the burpees even harder, add a push up or a tuck jump. Maybe both?!

Try this! 20 sec. on 10 sec. off x 2 rounds

  1. Squat Jumps
  2. Burpees
  3. Squat Pulses (Pulse at the bottom of the squat)
  4. Burpees

Whatever way you choose to do this Tabata bodyweight workout your quadriceps are going to be on fire! Just be ready to hit the deck afterwards as you wince in pain from the BURN!

As always train hard. Go all out. Be the best you can be. 

Until next time. 3, 2, 1, GO!!!
