Busy Thursday Tabata TrainingTabata training is an interval training protocol that only lasts 4 minutes, but can help increase stamina as well as amp up fat burning.
A tabata training protocol consists of 8 rounds of 20 seconds of exercise followed by 10 seconds of rest (i.e. a total of 4 minutes per exercise). Here are two free tabata timer apps for your iPhone/iPad:Tabata timer: a simple Tabata timerGym boss 2: an exercise timer (Tabata protocol is already built in)
Find an exercise pace that you are able to maintain throughout all 8 rounds, but only with great difficulty. Ideally, there shouldn’t be any 20-second work period with a significant drop-off in reps performed (I know, it’s easier said than done when you’re doing burpees!!).If you want a great workout, select just 3 different exercises that work the same muscle group, and do 3 tabatas with a couple of minutes of rest in between exercises. For example: 
Lateral burpeesfor 8 rounds of 20 seconds work / 10 seconds rest.

Wide leg jump squatsfor 8 rounds of 20 seconds work / 10 seconds rest.

Jump lungesfor 8 rounds of 20 seconds work / 10 seconds rest. 
That’s only around 12 minutes total workout time and you’re done! (ps: but don’t forget to warm up before and stretch after your workout.)
