Fit to Fly: Challenger Workout

8-minute Tabata routine

This Tabata routine is a high intensity interval training that provides a full-body workout. It is designed to elevate your heart rate into that hard to reach anaerobic zone for short periods of time, something that regular cardio workouts usually don't do.

In this 8-minute Tabata workout you will perform 4 exercises for 20 seconds followed by 10 second rest. You will repeat the circuit 4 times. 

Bulgarian split squat
Flutter kicks
One leg glute bridges
Shoulder taps

After you complete the first round, you will have a 10 second rest before starting again at the first exercise.

Movements included in this workout

Bulgarian Split Squat

Stand in front of the seat and extend your right leg behind you. Rest the top of your toes on the front of the seat. Keeping your back straight, slowly lower your right knee toward the floor and then push back up to the starting position. Switch legs and repeat.

Flutter Kicks

Lay flat on the floor, arms by your side with your hands underneath your glutes. Keep your lower back on the ground and raise your right leg off the ground slightly above your hips, then lift the left leg an inch off the floor. Begin moving your legs up and down in a flutter kick motion being mindful not to touch the floor with either foot until the exercise is complete.

One Leg Glute Bridges

Lay flat on your back with your knees bent. Raise your hips upward forming a bridge with your weight resting on your heels and your upper back. Engage your core and extend your left leg in front of you in line with your body. Lower your hips to the ground and then press back up driving through your right heel, squeezing your glutes at the top. Bring your left leg down, extend your right leg in front of you and repeat the movement.

Shoulder Taps

Start in a push-up position with your hands aligned with your shoulders and your feet hip width apart. Keeping your hips as still as possible, lift one hand and tap it on the opposite shoulder. Then repeat on the other side.
