Ever watched an olympic weightlifting event? This Tabata routine includes two of the best lifts you can do for a total body workout. 


The clean and press or jerk if you can jerk and the dumbbell snatch, which is technically easier to perform than a barbell snatch. 


The exercises;

  1. Clean & Press
  2. Dumbbell Snatch


The dumbbell snatch is one on my favourite exercises to develop speed and power through the hips which makes this tabata routine great for athletes who take part in power sports.  


How To Make This Tabata Routine Harder or Easier

The clean is a hard move to master. Try starting off with a sumo squat to high pull and an extra round of thrusters (squat and press). 

  • 1 round of Sumo High Pull
  • 1 round of Thrusters
  • 4 rounds


After 4 rounds of that tabata routine you'll know you've had a workout. 


Want to make it harder? Up the weight would be the obvious option and do one Tabata routine of just Clean & Jerk (4 minutes of just Clean & Press) followed by one routine of just Dumbbell Snatches.
