Hardest 4 Minute Workout EVER? (tabata burpees)

Maybe you’re running short on time and need a quick body weight – based workout to ‘sub out’ for your normal routine.

Maybe your workout wasn’t quite ‘up to snuff’ and you’re looking for a quick sequence to finish it off.

For a fast and efficient body weight – based routine that meets both of the above criteria, ‘tabata burpees’ are hard to beat …

I have a personal love/hate relationship with the burpee.  It’s a horrendously hard exercise, especially performed in the fashion I’m about to describe.  On the other hand, after a burpee-heavy workout, I always feel great when I’m done …

A Tabata Interval (also called a Tabata sequence) is an interval training cycle of 20 seconds of maximum intensity exercise, followed by 10 seconds of rest, repeated without pause 8 times for a total of four minutes.

For this workout sequence, you’re going to perform ‘tabata-style’ burpees – watch the video below to see how:
