Tabata: Wednesday workout Matt Bostick

Posted in , on September 23, 2021

It’s Tabata time for Workout Wednesday with Duff Elementary teacher Matt Bostick. And, no, Tabata isn’t a synonym for pain. It’s just a lot of high-intensity workout in a short amount of time.

Luckily for our virtual learners, Bostick is here to demonstrate the correct way to get a lot of workout done in a short amount of time. It can all be done in four minutes!

So, here’s Workout Wednesday No. 3.

Tabata (20 seconds of work, 10 seconds rest, older students can repeat for more work)

  • Shuffle taps (pick the daisies)
  • Squat walks 
  • Plank hold
  • Crab toe touch
  • Lunges
  • Pogo stick squats (good calf work too)
  • Dead bugs
  • Leg lifts

In case you missed Bostick’s Week 2 workout, here you go:

Cardio Minute Challenge (hit a stopwatch and switch every minute)

  • jogging
  • squat punches
  • frog jumps
  • front kicks
  • crab kicks
  • squat jacks
  • planks (high or low)
