Supreme 90 Day Review: Tabata Inferno. LOVED IT!

Supreme 90 Day: Tabata Inferno
Tom Holland, 2010

This is a 45ish minute cardio routine (with lots of good core work too!). Tom leads the workout with 4 backgrounders in a "lifting gym" type set. You will only need dumbbells for this workout (I used 1 set of lighter). The dvd is chaptered and includes a music only option.

This workout is formated that you do 20 seconds of work, 10 second break for 4 minutes then you get a 1 min rest. The 20 seconds is hard work but the rests make this workout totally doable! LOVE how this is formatted. I worked up quite the sweat and KNOW I worked really hard but I didnt feel like I was going to die because of the sequencing of the moves.

Some of the moves include: jump squats, Mt.climbers, high knees, weighted squat w/ an overhead press, pushup variations, bicycle crunches, walking planks, plyo lunges, pike crunches, weighted twisting v sits, squatting wood chops, power jacks, burpees, etc.

I would rate this an advanced cardio workout that includes a ton of good core work as well. There are some pushups and the squat- overhead press move, but I still consider this cardio. I like Tom- good cuing, good personality. He emphasizes doing what YOU can do in the 20 seconds so though this is a challenging workout- I think it would easily adapt to most fitness levels. I absolutely love the sequencing of this workout- well thought out and super effective IMO. I received this dvd to review.


  1. Yeah, the inferno totally burned me up! Somehow I made it through, but I couldn't do everything for the full allotted time.

  2. Oh my, sounds like a pretty tough and long-ish workout. I enjoy Cathe's 30 minute HIIT workouts. Might have to start out doing just part of it and work my way up.

  3. Wow, sounds like a really high intensity workout!

  4. This workout sounds like a lot of fun!

  5. wow this sounds hard but it sounds like its good for everyone
