Printable Workout: 20 Minute Total Body Tabata Workout

Tabata protocol is one of the most effective and best fat burning workouts out there. If you don’t believe me you can even read about it here. The best thing about it…you only have to do about 20 minutes of tabata intervals to get the same aerobic benefit and calorie burn as running several miles or slogging through 40 minutes on the elliptical trainer. Now full disclosure, that means this workout if going to be tough and you’re going to sweat…a lot:)

You’ll do 20 seconds of high intensity cardio followed by 10 seconds of rest, then 20 seconds of  intense strength moves followed by another 10 seconds of rest. You repeat this pattern for 4 minutes at that’s a tabata protocol.

You only need a pair of dumbbells and you’re good to go, you can even do this workout at home! Get the printable version with exercise descriptions here.Tabata Workout

Happy Workout!

  1. I did this yesterday and loved it! One question though, it only took me about 12 minutes, did I do something wrong??

    • I made the same mistake, so I checked out the full description and you’re supposed to do a 5 minute warmup first, and rest for a full minute in between each section. Oops! Now we know for next time :)
