This 20-Minute Tabata Workout Is All About Blasting That Booty!

You might be surprised to know that CrossFit isn't just about lifting heavy-ass weights and flipping tires! Sometimes it incorporates high-intensity Tabata-style workouts. Tabata involves structuring your workout into 20 seconds of pushing yourself hard, followed by 10 seconds of rest, and repeating that eight times for a total of four minutes. These workouts are so versatile because you can practically choose any exercise to do for those 20 seconds, and as long as you push your pace, you'll get in a heart-pumping, butt-kicking workout.

This Tabata workout is all about "blasting that booty," as CrossFit coach Sefton Hirsch of Champlain Valley CrossFit so lovingly says. It incorporates lunges and deadlifts, two of his favorite butt-busting moves.
