2. Tabata

A Tabata (named after a Japanese doctor who ‘invented’ it) workout should leave you pretty tired in just five minutes. Here’s a template to get you going:

You can do this routine with any exercise, but I’ve used air squats for the example:

  • 20 seconds – as many squats as possible
  • 10 seconds – rest

Repeat seven more times.

By the end, you should feel pretty tired. If not, you’re not working hard enough on the squats. Use a clock, or an app on your phone to keep your timing on track. Enjoy!
