If you’re finding it hard to get motivated in the new year, you’re in luck, because celebrity trainer, Erin Oprea, shared with HollywoodLifeEXCLUSIVELY, the 4-minute workouts you can do at home. “Tabatas are definitely one of my favorite workouts,” Erin shared. “I have a tabata timer on my app. On my app, I also have a new 30-minute workout every single day full of lots of fun games that you and your family can play. Tabatas are a huge hit with my clients and give great results, and who doesn’t love tuning fitness into a game!?”
So what exactly are tabatas? “Tabatas are a 4-minute workout with 20-second burst of exercise followed by 10 seconds of rest for 8 rounds. I have the timer on my app,” Erin revealed. To follow Erin’s exact workout, see below.
“Round 1 – squats and jumps
Round 2 – squat holds
Repeat 8 Rounds
“Round 1 – pushups
Round 2 – 2 mountain climbers
Repeat 8 Rounds
“Round 1 – bicycle crunches
Round 2 – flutter kicks
Repeat 8 rounds”
If you need a little pick me up in between working from home, Erin suggested, “Tabatas. These 4 minutes will wake you up, keep you energized, and make you want more movement. Go outside and get some fresh air; it’s amazing what fresh air and vitamin D will do for your soul.”
As for how to get motivated to do her workouts, Erin gave five tips: “1. Stop eating junk food; 2. If safe, go outside and get some fresh air; 3. Hang up a picture in your cabinet so every time you open your cabinet you see a picture of a goal you are trying to hit; 4. Eat clean, junk food will never leave you motivated. 5. FaceTime a friend and workout together; there is nothing like an accountability partner to keep you motivated!”
