Speaker: Here is Coach Nick and I want to show you one of my favorite body weight tabata intervals, we showed advanced tabata. This is if you have no equipments of the exercise at home and you still don't want to bother with any of those weights, it is a great way to get a cardiovascular strength to core workout. So how is this done? I am going to give you four exercises, and we start with speed squat, and then we go to burpees and then we go to mountain climber and then we go to skip. That's four exercises in order to get a true tabata, which is, you are actually going to go through that round two times. So just for the sake of saving time here, so you can watch the entire workout so you are just going to get your sample of each exercise, so you know how to try it right. So, speed squat, ideally want your hands up and if that is not comfortable for you, whatever you want to do with your hands you are going to squat as fast as you can for 20 seconds. It is okay to come off your heels a little bit. Okay so I do 20 seconds on one, then I rest for 10 second and then I go to burpees. Again, trying to go as fast as I possibly can. So, I will do burpees for 20 seconds and then a 10 second break. Now I am already down here, so I will do my mountain climb. A lot of people do mountain climb like this, no good. This way you don't touch the ground, back stay straight. Okay, 20 seconds there, 10 seconds break and finally skips. Torso stays up, knees up. So, if you notice I did two two-leg exercises with the squat and the burpees and then two single leg exercises with the mountain climbers and the skips. Two times through that, your heart rate is not up and you are not sweating and ready to take a little break, your intensity is not high enough, so as fast as you can.
