3) What are the best exercises to practice TABATA e. Burpees

e.    Burpees

Have you ever heard about this exercise? If not, you will enjoy it! It’s an exercise you can use in “jail”, or in a small hotel room, when you have a few alternatives for training.

Check this definition, and see how many different variations exist:

The one who are going to use for Tabata training is the Burpee push-up+ jump (“full body”).

1.Begin in a standing position.

2.Drop into a squat position with your hands on the ground.

3.Extend your feet back in one quick motion to assume the front plank position.

4.Perform one push-up

4.Return to the squat position in one quick motion.

5.Return to an upright standing position while jumping as high as you can and extending your arms.

And start again the cycle!

This exercise requires very few equipment, can be done anywhere (we mentioned “jail” previously…) and is very suffocating! Plus, with the different variations, you will never get bored!

Ready for Tabata? Once again, take your watch, timer, MP3 or partner to help you to perform the 8 cycles. Record and track your number of repetitions and try to improve regularly your best performance.
