Workout of the Week
Step Tabata Fusion

Instructions
Find a space that is clear in front, behind, and to each side of you to avoid injury. Perform a warm-up that consists of an activity that gradually increases your heart rate and moves your joints through a moderate to large range of motion such as the one below. Perform each exercise in the warm-up for 45 seconds.

It is encouraged that you modify each exercise to a version that is best for you.

Workout
Step aerobics is a workout that targets the entire body using a combination of flexibility, strength, and cardio-focused movements. Step aerobics can be modified to be either high or low impact. Tabata is high intensity interval training specifically using intervals of 20 seconds of work and 10 seconds of rest. This workout combines step movements into a Tabata format. Each Tabata set contains two exercises. Perform exercise 1 for 20 seconds, take a 10 second rest, then perform exercise 2 for 20 seconds followed by a 10 second rest. Repeat each Tabata set four times with a 60 second rest between sets.

Equipment needed: Step or elevated surface, timer
