16-minute Tabata Leg Workout


I was sore for like 3 days and my legs aren’t easily sore. Ooooohhh-doggie. Okay, here’s how it works. Tabata is 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds rest. You repeat the same exercise for 8 rounds before moving to the next. So, in this case, you will do eight rounds of the lunges before moving on to the jump squats. Get it? You can get a Tabata timer on your phone. It is a free app and super useful. The whole damn thing only takes 16 minutes, and I promise you will be cursing my name. But YOU can do ANYTHING for 16 minutes. Most of you have had babies for crying out loud! ?

  1. Exercise 1: Lunges (you will alternate which leg stays in front each round).
  2. Exercise 2: Jump squats
  3. Exercise 3: Goblet squats
  4. Exercise 4: Banded skater squatsIf you are having symptoms with the jumps (no, you should never pee your pants and it can be improved!), sub the jumps for step ups. There are so many ways to #workout with creativity without causing or worsening symptoms within your body!
