I love doing tabata’s when I don’t have a specific muscle group that I need to work on. I hope you try this one!
Tabata’s are timed exercises that keep your heart rate up and keep you from getting bored 😉
I like to use my gymboss timer.
I think there are plenty of app’s for phones out there with timers.

My abs are hurting , which is a good thing!
