Running tabata has been a staple at Fixed on Fitness since 2009.  If a tabata workout is not part of your exercise library, make sure you add it.  Tabata is simply a style of workout that includes 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest for 8 rounds.  

We love tabata workouts.  You can use any combination of exercises, and you can also incorporate tabata sets into your cardio workouts.  Check out the version that we did this week at FOF.

Running Tabata

With this workout, you will complete one full tabata set and then run 1/4 mile.  You will not take your rest until after you complete your run.  You want to run the 1/4 mile at a fast pace.  After the run, you will take 1 minute rest.  All exercises will be completed tabata style.

I highly recommend downloading a free tabata app, such as Tabata Pro, so that you don’t have to constantly watch your clock.

  • Chest to Floor Push ups
  • .25 Mile Run
  • Burpees
  • .25 Mile Run
  • Plank
  • .25 Mile Run
  • OMG Lunges
  • .25 Mile Run
  • Supermans
  • .25 Mile Run

Enjoy that rest.

Remember to work as hard as you can during the 20 seconds of work and then enjoy that 10 seconds of rest.  Have fun with this workout.  If you have a weight, we love to incorporate swings and thrusters into tabata workouts.
