Short on time?  Aren’t we all….all the time?  Luckily, exercise can help boost our energy levels if we can just fit some in (1).  On our most busy days, fitting in a short Tabata workout can be just what we need.  For Tabata training, we just need about 4 minutes (2).  During that time, we split the work-out into periods of high-intense exercise, and periods of rest.  Our suggestion for your Tabata day?  Try 20 seconds of burpees followed by a 10 second rest and repeat that as many times as you can up to 4 minutes.  Afterwards, walk around for about 30 seconds to allow your heart rate to slowly come down.

Have fun & Be Active!
