6 Minute Tabata Workout

Who doesn't love TABATA? Just kidding. If you've done a tabata style workout you probably know how brutal it can be but it's also a really efficient way to get the heart pumping and fatigue specific muscle groups. Try this out as a quick solo workout or to build into a larger circuit. Tag a friend who would do this with you! 

Jump rope (mad props if you can do double unders all the way through this) 20 seconds on
10 seconds rest
Push ups 20 seconds on
10 second rest
Repeat 6x

The Ultimate Jump Rope Challenge

When was the last time you jump roped? It's cheap, portable and strengthens upper and lower body while also requiring some serious cardiovascular endurance.

If you're new to jump roping or trying for the first time in a while try this workout:

50 jumps>15 sec rest and repeat 5 times.

If you're wanting more of a challenge try this:

100 jumps>15 sec rest and repeat 5 times  

If you're familiar with double unders this is the ultimate jump roping challenge:

10 double unders, rest
20 double unders, rest 
30 double unders, rest
40 double unders, rest
50 double unders, rest
60 double unders, rest
50 double unders, rest
40 double unders, rest
30 double unders, rest
20 double unders, rest
10 double unders, DONE!

The rule is this: once you've completed 10, move onto 20. If you fail to complete 10, you have to start over again. For example: If you make it 59 but not 60, you must start at 50 again.  

Good Luck!
