Fit in 15: Fat-Burning Tabata Circuit

This article starts with a good idea "This bodyweight-only Tabata circuit gets the job done when you’re short on time."

But the exercises proposes won't reach the 170% of VO2Max required to benefit from Tabata interval protocol:
  • Bodyweight Squat
  • Pushup
  • Alternating Lunge
  • Plank
 Squat can be enhanced by carrying a backbag or using two bottles of water and perform thrusters. Push-up won't be intense enough for your entire body (but can be intense for pecs, triceps and front shoulder) so you can try to clap your hands at each repetition. Alternating lunge could reach a sufficient level of intensity if you jump as well in between each leg. Finally, plank is definitely not going to push your oxygen consumption to 170% VO2max but it's a foundation exercice for core.
