Think Tabata is Easy? Try This 4 Minute Spin Bike Workout

Do you love tabata exercise because it provides a thorough workout? Try this tough workout on your spin bike for a lung busting workout.

This tabata protocol is simple. Use a tabata app on your phone to keep tabs, and put on your favourite tune. It will give you the motivation.

I set my tabata app for three rounds, but because I’ve not been on my bike for several weeks, I could only complete one set.

This is the tabata protocol, which I completed on my Proform TDF 1.0 Indoor Cycle at an incline of 15 (maximum) at level 15 (26 levels max).

  1. Cycle as fast as possible for twenty seconds.
  2. Rest for 10 seconds.
  3. Cycle as fast as possible for twenty seconds.
  4. Rest for 10 seconds etc

Repeat this intense cycle eight times totalling 4 minutes.

I know that this tabata protocol sounds easy, but cycling with maximum effort at the hill incline and the added resistance level made me pant heavily at my third interval.

Put your favourite tune on because you’re going to need the motivation.

Check out these great range of spin bikes for inspiration and enjoy a tough tabata workout in only four minutes.

Get Sweaty With This HIIT Workout On The RX800 Rower

Get Sweaty With This HIIT Workout On The RX800 Rower

Out of all of the exercise machines that I’ve purchased, I love the Nordic Track RX800 Rower, which is fold up and cost £499 on internet free monthly payments. It features 2o built in workouts – 10 watt training programmes, and 10 calorie training programmes, which certainly keep the heart rate up.

I love high intensity interval training (HIIT), so I often use my tabata trainer app to complete 20 sets of 30 seconds rowing at high intensity (level 10 resistance) followed by a thirty second rest, and I’ll burn around 350 calories.

The RX800 rowing machine* also has a speaker system so you can plug in your music to motivate you during the workout. There are five levels of resistance – which is great if you want a steady row workout. This fold up rowing machine provides a thorough workout and tones the arms, back, abdominals, legs, and buttocks.
