Home Workout #52: Unconventional Tabata

Home Workout #52: Unconventional Tabata

4-Minute Workout!

I’m pretty sure this is the World’s Most Unconventional 4-Minute Workout. It is so intense, I couldn't wait for it to be over!!

I wrote this workout for the BSN Team Shred Challenge that I hosted on Bodybuilding.com during October and November of 2014. I double dog (or cat) dare you to try this!

hey you BNS

Equipment Required:

Two 16 pound kitty litter jugs. If it’s not in your budget to buy 2 kettlebells, then this is a very inexpensive alternative.

You don’t have to use kitty litter jugs. You can use milk jugs, dumbbells, medicine balls, or kettlebells. 

I also used my Dr. Sara Solomon Cross Speed Jump Rope, by Buddy Lee Jump Ropes.

Always A Must

Read my workout rules before you begin!

Drink your BCAAs!

Stay hydrated with water.

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).

You don’t have to do exactly what I’m doing. Feel free to substitute exercises.

Set your timers for 20 sec of WORK and 10 sec of REST. Here are the 8 exercises, as seen in today's video:

1. Kitty Litter Push-ups
2. Power Jumps
3. Kitty Litter Sumo Squats
4. Breakdancer Planks
5. Kitty Litter Swings
6. Power Jumps
7. Ab Rockers
8. Kitty Litter Deadlifts

Do the workout with me and my cat! Just click on the video and GO!

Don't forget to foam roll and stretch after your workout!
