July's WOTM

July's WOTM

This month’s workout is a tabata style workout which is high intensity interval training (HIIT) that lasts only four minutes!! So it’s a super quick, no fuss workout perfect for those hectic days.

Try doing the workout below for two rounds (so eight minutes in total) or if you’re feeling super energetic, go for three rounds!

Firstly get your stopwatch ready (your phone should have one). The plan is to work as hard as you can for the 20 second intervals followed by 10 seconds rest for the full four minutes. Then take a minute rest and repeat for another four minutes.

So repeat this for four rounds:

Exercise 1 x 20seconds

Rest x10 seconds

Exercise 2 x 20 seconds

Rest x10 seconds

Exercise 1 - Squat jumps: Lower down into a squat, jump explosively up and then land back down into a squat. Repeat as fast as you can for the twenty seconds.

Exercise 2 - Shoulder taps (in plank): Start in a high plank (so a push up position) then take one arm off and tap your opposite shoulder, whilst keeping your core super tight to maintain stability. Repeat with the other arm and carry on alternating for the 20 seconds.
