You’ve heard me talk in the past about the effectiveness of 4-minute, high intensity workouts.
There has been research conducted on the effectiveness of a type of interval training called Tabata intervals, where you work hard for 20 seconds, rest of 10 seconds for 8 rounds (which equals 4 minutes).
I used a lot of this type of training when I got my six-pack abs.
Usually I would string together 3 to 4 of these four minute workouts together for an intense 12-16 minute training session.
Another effective way to do this would be to do four bouts of four minute training at various times of the day.
That would produce a nice metabolic spike each time you did it.
Below is a sample of a 4-minute training protocol involving push ups and squats which you can find in the 4-Minute Workout DVDs.
It doesn’t seem hard… until you try it. : )
I would love to get your feedback on what you think.
Have a great day.
