Get back on track after feasting with this Post-Thanksgiving Tabata workout that you can do with just a set of dumbbells at home
Need a good workout after Thanksgiving to get back on track and shed fat? Try this Tabata routine for a total body workout that rocks!
Tabata is one of my favorite metabolic workout routines that consists of 20 seconds of maximal intensity work followed by 10 seconds rest, repeated 8 times for 4 minutes per round. This is followed by a 1 minute rest, then repeated 3 more times for a 20 minute HIIT workout.
I recommend getting a workout timer to pre-set times or getting a pre-recorded Tabata music mix so you can focus on your workout intensity rather than your times.
You can use dumbbells with this routine for the squat press and rows, or you can use some bands if you are traveling!

Under the description I think you meant 20 seconds of maximal intensity followed by 10 seconds of rest.
Tabata workouts are terrific. They get you nice and sweaty in a short amount of time.
Oops, good catch! I fixed it, thanks a bunch! Tabatas are one of my favorite workouts. I hadn’t done them in a while, so it felt so good to do a Tabata yesterday morning
