HIIT: High Intensity Interval Training

In this article, here are some body weight typical exercises for TABATA training.

1- BURPEES! My favorite! My favorite because you have to do very few to shoot your heart rate up anaerobically. Squat down and place your hands on the floor. Jump back with 2 feet into a plank. Jump your feet back in to where you are squatting again and jump in the air with your hands overhead. These work your body all over.
2- MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS - Place your hands on to the floor or a bench and start in plank position. Bring each knee in like your jogging but try to almost touch your elbows with your knee. DON'T LET YOUR BUTT BOUNCE and keep in that plank position the entire time. Great for working your core.
3- SPEED SKATERS - Jump off one foot to the other in a side to side motion. You can either reach forward or touch down if your flexibility allows this. Jump as far as you can and as high as you can. Great leg workout too.
4- SQUAT JUMPS - Squat and jump up in the air. For and extra boost to the heart rate, raise your hands over head as you jump. Great for the legs and glutes
5- JUMP LUNGES - Lunge with your right foot forward and left back. Jump on both feet to land in a lunge with your left foot forward and right foot back. Great for the legs and glutes.
