20-Minute Home Tabata Workout

Posted on January 9, 2015 at 12:01 am by

Happy Fit Friday, babes (: How was your week? I can’t complain…as I’m sitting here putting this post together I have the sweetest puppy snoozing in my lap! YEP – Adam got me a pit bull puppy for my birthday! My birthday isn’t until the 20th, so it’s the best early birthday present ever! Meet Harley…I’m sure he’ll be making workout video appearances with Buck:

So precious, right?! Okay now that the puppy cuteness has been shared it’s time for me to kick y’all’s butts with a new workout!

Today we have a 20-minute home tabata workout that requires ZERO equipment!

Home Tabata Workout

Here’s the breakdown:

There are 5 exercises. You are going to complete each move for a total of 4 minutes made up of 8 rounds. 1 round = 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest. I suggest using the Tabata Timer app. The total workout will be 20 minutes long, breaks included.

Here are the moves:

Side to Side Ski Jumps

ski jumps

Half Burpees

Half Burpees

Butt Kickers

Plyo Lunge/Squat Combo

Side to Side Frog Jumps

How do y’all like the gifs?! I figured I would give this a try to spice things up a bit!

So get your sweat on this weekend with this tabata workout and let me know what you think!
xo, Jess

    I am so jealous of your new puppy addition! I live in Ontario, where Pit bulls are banned, though they are the best dogs!!!! That would be my next dog if I were to get another one..right now we have a boxer/american bulldog 80 lb lap dog 😉 Can’t wait to try this workout during these COOOOLD days here in Canada!

    • Glisten Fit says:

      Oh man, that is so sad that they are banned 🙁 That is the only kind of dog I’ve ever had. And yes…they’re all 80 pound lap dogs hahaha!
      Stay warm, girl! xo, Jess

    I needed a short quick workout for tomorrow since finding time to workout on a Saturday is tough because my kids don’t like when I spend 2 hours in my home gym since they like to spend it out and about!! So thank you.. I love it!! Can’t wait to try it.. And congrats on your new puppy.. ???????? Happy early birthday!!!

  • Crissy says:

    congrats on the best kind of gift! And I like the gifs and this workout- you’re the best always creating new ways to keep us moving and glisten fit. 🙂

    He is just PRECIOUS!!! I see from your instagram that Buck has been doing well with him. Has he taken him under his wing as big brother?

    I really would love a pittie, but like Fiona above, I live in Ontario and they\\\’re banned here. And don\\\’t even get me started on how prehistoric and stupid that law is. Any dog is capable of biting people!!

    Anyways, I look forward to seeing this baby grow 🙂 Enjoy!!

      Oh my gosh Buck is SO protective and loves the little guy so much already! A neighbor cat tried picking on Harley and Buck ran him off and then came back and wouldn’t leave Harley’s side. So precious!

      xo, Jess

    Love the puppy! I had a beagle pit bull mix. Best dog ever!! Can’t wait to try this workout. I’ve been trying to get in better shape. I work from home and this is easy to sneak in 🙂
