Tabata Upper Body Workout

arnoldArnold probably didn’t get this big doing Tabatas, but supplementing your workout routine with this upper body Tabata workout of the large muscles (back and chest) will help to build both strength and endurance.

Tabata workout #3 – perform each exercise for 20 seconds, rest for 10 seconds between exercises. Complete 8 cycles for a total of four minutes.  This is one Tabata.

  • Standard push-ups
  • Bent over row (You can use a barbell, dumbbells, or bands)
  • Incline or Decline push-ups
  • Supermans

Again, be sure to stretch after to reduce soreness the next day.

Enjoy 🙂

    Do you have basic instructions for these exercises? Besides the push ups I mean. Not sure what some of them are and how to accurately execute them.

  2. Agreed – Not great for bodybuilders but really effective for getting lean! Thanks!
