A few weeks ago, we had a friendly “debate” over which one of the Dumbbell Tabata videos – there are, as of today, four of them – was the best. And this is pretty much my favorite kind of debate ever, because you know what? Nobody loses! If you’re doing any of the dumbbell Tabata workouts, you’re totally a winner.
Here are links to the three older videos, in case you haven’t seen them:
The One with the Purple Shirt is the oldest and, in my opinion, the “easiest.” Or, as easy as Tabata with dumbbells can be (which isn’t easy). It has the most views because it’s been around a while and it’s just 20 minutes long – a great place to start with Tabata workouts. You can follow along with it here.
The One with the Pink Shirt and The One with the Green Shirt are equally difficult, and by that I mean brutal. These are both rated Intermediate level because they’re just sweaty sweat bombs. Decide for yourself which one you think is tougher and leave a comment below! Pink Shirt or Green Shirt.
This newest one is the second easiest, I think. It’s definitely more beginner-friendly than Pink or Green, but tougher than your average “beginner” workout. I had a lot of fun with this one, because it’s all low impact cardio exercises that I know and love already with the added bonus of weights in your hands. Fast-paced and FUN!
