It’s time for another crazy muscle-sculpting, fat-melting and super-intense workout session! For those of you who are following the Bikini Pow 4-week challenge, this will be your second workout of week 3. In order to reap the full benefits of this type of training, you will need to give it your 100% during these short bursts of high intensity exercises. This workout might only be 4 minutes long, but if done properly, it will get you amazing results while keeping your metabolism up all day long!
Set your interval timer to 4 rounds of 20 seconds (exercise) : 10 seconds (rest) intervals. Once you complete your first round, repeat one more time, taking a short break in between the two rounds. In case you don’t have your own interval timer, I have set one up online for this workout: Tabata Lunge Shredder Online Interval Timer.
