- Oblique Taps (alternate sides, each round)
- Leg Raises
- Toe Touches
- Reverse Crunches
- Low Plank

Time Needed: 16 minutes
Equipment Needed: None
Focus Areas: Rectus abdominis, external and internal obliques

Additional Info:
Tabata is a highly effective form of interval training, where one works for 20 seconds, followed by a 10 second rest, at which point the work resumes again for 20 seconds and 10 second rest, repeating as prescribed.

This Tabata will be performed in succession (ie. 20s Situps, 10s REST, 20s Bicycle Kicks, 10s REST, etc, then you will repeat the circuit from the top for a total of 4 rounds)

You want to pick weights where you can work at high intensity for the full 20 seconds of each interval.
