Tabata: Wednesday workout Matt Bostick

Do You Have 4 Minutes? That’s All You Need For This Workout Wednesday Session

Six weeks into Workout Wednesday and Duff physical education teacher Matt Bostick is introducing many of you to a new word – Tabata.

The good news is that if you’re a fan of quick workouts, Tabata is right for you as Bostick said you can get what you need done in four minutes. The bad news? Well, there’s not a lot of time to slow down and think about the At-Home Learning Hub as Tabata’s goal is a lot of intensity in a short amount of time. The focus is on hard work and short breaks to get in another great workout.

Here’s the plan for this week.

Week 6 workout (perform eight rounds, 20 seconds of work and 10 seconds of rest)

You pick the exercise:

  • Jumping jacks
  • Jumping squats
  • Sit-ups
  • Plank

For added intensity, perform one set of Tabata using one exercise, and then do another full set with a new exercise!
