Fitness Friday: Have an "Eggceptionally" Active Easter!

Posted on Apr 11, 2014 by Hilton Head Health

With Easter just around the corner, you may be foreseeing plenty of sugar in your near future as a consequence of treat-filled baskets and Easter Egg hunts. While holidays are an understandable time to be a little indulgent, use being "hopped up on sugar" to your advantage this year! Channel your inner energizer bunny and try this Tabata workout designed to make you move as quick as a rabbit!

Tabata is a style of high-intensity interval training in which 20 seconds of activity are followed by 10 seconds of rest. This method is repeated for a total of eight rounds, or four minutes, for each exercise. Since you will be performing four exercises, this workout is 16 minutes long. Grab a stopwatch and remember to stretch afterward!
