Home Workout #51: Mother-Daughter Tabata

Home Workout #51: Mother-Daughter Tabata

4-Minute Workout!

I'm pretty sure this is the World's Longest 4-Minute Workout. Ha!

It's a Mother-Daughter Home Workout (plus cat).

My mother is a senior citizen (she's in her late 60s). She has a few problem areas (her thumbs, neck and back), so I was able to work with her to devise exercises that didn't cause her any discomfort. My Mom demonstrates the beginner exercises, and I demonstrate the advanced exercises. Do it with us! It FUN!

p.s. Many have requested that I include the video footage that typically gets cut. So not only will you get to see the entire workout and the workout demonstration, but you will also get the entire process of how I plan a workout ... including the hilarious outtakes.

Equipment Required:

None! Just gravity and your body weight!

Always a Must!

Read my workout rules before you begin!

Video Workout

Keep this circuit mega-INTENSE; otherwise, you are not going to benefit from metabolism-boosting effects of HIIT. Maximize fat-burning by doing this workout fasted as soon as you wake up …  and stay fasted for at least 2 hours after the workout (you can drink your BCAAs). This circuit consists of 4 exercises, repeated twice. Set your timers for 20 seconds of work and 10 seconds of rest. You don’t have to do exactly what I’m doing. That’s why mom also stars in this video to show you beginners options!
