Tabata Style workouts
Tabata style training is perhaps the best bang for your buck workouts. The idea is to create a circuit of exercises that you will perform one after another, with limited rest.
In order to perform these properly, you should consider muscle syncing – a method used by old-school strength experts.
The idea is to constantly switch muscle systems between exercises. An example of this would be doing push-ups, followed by pull-ups. Although both exercises work the upper body, they work opposite strength systems.
