Summer Tabata Fat Burning Furnace Workout

A Tabata workout is a good way to burn more fat this summer and change up your workout routine. If you're looking for a way to break out of your fat loss plateau, try a Tabata workout.


Tabata is a very intense interval training technique. It is a great way to burn more calories and fat during and after your workout. You will need one bodyweight exercise (like mountain climbers above) and 4 minutes. Yes, only 4 minutes!

Tabata bodyweight training works this way:

1. After a 5 minute warmup, choose a bodyweight exercise.

2. Do as many repetitions as you can for 20 seconds.

3. Rest for 10 seconds.

4. Repeat this cycle for 4 minutes. Make sure to maintain correct form as you get fatigued.  You will be exhausted at the end.

As you progress, you can add more time but keep the 2-to-1 work to rest ratio. For instance, you could do a 30 sec./15 sec. work to rest ratio. You could also speed up your repetitions even more as you get into better shape to make the training even more intense.

Other good exercises to use would be squat jumps, burpees, or walking lunges.
