“This full-body Tabata workout will boost your metabolism and quickly raise your heart rate as your body works hard to keep up. Start with a 3- to 5-minute warmup with dynamic stretches and finish with a 3- to 5-minute cooldown.” – Kelly Lee

How to do it:

Do as many reps as you can of each move for 20 seconds at a high intensity, followed by 10 seconds of rest. Repeat 8 times per exercise. Rest 1 minute between moves.

(Take 2 to 3 minutes after burpees.)
