(Men's Health)

Say goodbye to your belly fat.

If you want a tried-and-true workout that will guarantee to leave you dripping in sweat, you can always rely on the Tabata. The interval workout style with 2:1 work-to-rest ratio means you get just enough rest to keep pushing, but by the end of each round you will be thoroughly smoked.

In this Tabata-style workout, Hannah Eden, trainer at Pumpfit in Ft. Lauderdale, mixes plyometric, core, and dumbbell moves for a routine that will blaze your entire body in just 30 minutes.

In the first round, the burpee and high knees combination move and the plank walkout will target conditioning, core strength, and stability.

During round two, you'll make the most of your "rests" by holding the dumbbells at the most challenging part of each exercise. That's more time under tension—which means more muscle-building stimulus.

For the final round, your lungs will threaten to revolt from the unrelenting explosiveness of the reverse burpee tuck jump. Then you'll hit the floor for some seriously challenging abs moves.

Just going through this sequence once is enough to light up your metabolism, but you'll cycle all 3 rounds again for a merciless assault on flab. So set your timer and get ready to blast off the fat.

Directions: Perform the exercises listed below for 20 seconds each, resting for 10 seconds after each move.

1a. Burpee and high knees

1b. Plank walkout

That's 1 round. Perform 4 rounds. Rest 1 minute before moving to the next pair. Then perform the next two exercises listed below for 20 seconds each, resting for 10 seconds after each move.

2a. Dumbbell bicep curl (hold during rest)

2b. Dumbbell high pull (hold during rest)

That's 1 round. Perform 4 rounds. Rest 1 minute before moving to the next pair. Then perform the next two exercises listed below for 20 seconds each, resting for 10 seconds after each move.

3a. Reverse burpee tuck jump

3b. V-up and knee tuck sit-up

That's 1 cycle. Do 2 cycles.
