Welcome to Workout 2 of Fred's Workout Lab.
For this session we are focusing on Tabata. Tabata training is a high-intensity interval training (HIIT) technique, featuring a set of exercises that last four minutes in total, which is easy to fit into even the busiest Mum's day. You push yourself as hard as you can for 20 seconds and rest for 10 seconds. This is one set. You'll complete eight sets of each of the exercises.
Tabata burns a lot of calories and provides a killer full-body anaerobic and aerobic workout which is perfect for your postnatal fitness journey. In addition to helping you to loose baby weight this method of training also improves athletic performance, improves glucose metabolism, and acts as an excellent catalyst for all important fat burning so the pain will be worth the effort.
What you need
You’ll just need you and a clock with a second hand or a digital timer (either a kitchen timer or your phone).
Use these two exercises, alternating between the Set A on the first 4 minutes and Set B on the second 4 minutes.
E2: Squat Thrusters
Once you have completed both sets of exercises for 4 minutes each repeat the whole thing as many times as you like.
Have fun! You are doing great.
