I present to you, the workout….

All you need: Stopwatch, resistance band, and palm tree (no palm tree use, aforementioned pole or sturdy device)

Each Tabata interval consists of 20 seconds of high intensity (high intensity = as hard as you can go) exercise followed by 10 seconds of rest. (This is what 20/10 means below) This is repeated eight times straight for a total of 4 minutes. That 4 minutes = 1 round

It’s hard, but it goes by…like that. Promise.

1 round equals the following:

1. Squat and Row 20/10
2. Swimmers (back straight, arms straight, touch band to shoulders) 20/10
3. Tight Rotations (right side) 20/10
4. Tight Rotations (left side) 20/10
5. Punches (right leg forward) 20/10
6. Punches (left leg forward) 20/10
7. Swimmers (back straight, arms straight, touch band to shoulders) 20/10
8. Squat and Row. 20/10

Week 1 = 6 rounds

week 2 = 7 rounds

Week 3 = 8 rounds

Week 4 = Treat yourself to a new bikini.
