This Kitchen Pot Tabata Workout Proves You Can Find Exercise Equipment Anywhere

Trainer Kaisa Keranen (a.k.a. @kaisafit and the Tabata expert behind our 30-day Tabata challenge) has been on a roll with her toilet paper Tabata and pillow workouts—but her latest, the kitchen pot workout, might just be the most creative yet.

How it works: Grab a large, sturdy kitchen pot and follow typical Tabata protocol. For each move, do as many reps as possible (AMRAP) at all-out effort for 20 seconds, then rest for 10 seconds. Repeat the entire circuit twice for a 4-minute blast, or more times for a longer and more intense workout.

2 to 1 Jumps Onto Pot

A. Start standing with feet wider than hip-width apart in front of an upside-down pot.
B. Lower into a half-squat and jump, landing on the right foot on top of the pot.
C. Immediately jump back to start and repeat on the other side.

Do AMRAP for 20 seconds; rest for 10 seconds.

Rotating Floor to Sky

A. Start standing with feet wider than hip-width apart, holding a pot in two hands.
B. Squat, tapping pot to the floor.
C. Stand and rotate torso and hips to the right, reaching pot toward the ceiling and pivoting left foot.
D. Return to start and repeat on the opposite side.

Do AMRAP for 20 seconds; rest for 10 seconds.

On/Off Push-Up Plank Jacks

A. Start in a high plank position with both feet on top of an upside down pot.
B. Lower into a push-up.
C. Press torso away from the floor and hop feet to either side of the pot.
D. Immediately hop feet back on top of the pot, lowering into a push-up to begin the next rep.

Do AMRAP for 20 seconds; rest for 10 seconds.

Single-Leg Hurdle Kick

A. Stand on the right leg on top of an upside-down pot. Bend the right leg to tap the left toes to the floor behind pot.
B. Sweep the left leg forward and then out to the left, as if kicking over a hurdle.
C. Immediately lower back to start to begin the next rep.

Do AMRAP for 20 seconds; rest for 10 seconds. Do every other round on the opposite side.
