Valentine's Day Tabata Workout Guidelines

1. Start off with a 5 minute warm-up session (you can warm-up using your favorite piece of cardio equipment or with your own bodyweight (jumping jacks, jog in place, etc.), as long as you get that heart rate up!

2. Set your interval timer to: 8 rounds of 20sec/10sec.

3. Perform one of the 4 exercises after the other (20sec. each – taking a 10sec. break in between each exercise)

4. Once you’ve completed your set, take a short break (about 1 min or more if needed) and repeat 1
