Pippen has her own YouTube channel dedicated to sharing workout videos. She does a lot of different things to stay in shape. One thing Pippen is a fan of is tabata exercises. She posted this video of herself and her daughter doing a full body tabata workout. In it, they do exercises like jumping jacks, lunges, and hand taps. The Cleveland Clinic reports that tabata has a lot of benefits. “The answer is simple: You’d be hard-pressed finding another workout routine that builds as much cardiorespiratory endurance in as short a time. Studies have shown that devoting a few minutes to Tabata increases cardio and strength more than devoting far more hours to moderate-intensity workouts. It’s a pretty impressive fat burner, too.”

Another type of workout Pippen likes to do is HIIT, or high-intensity interval training. She shared this video on her YouTube channel of herself doing a full-body HIIT workout. In it, Pippen is seen doing Arnold presses and front squats with hand weights. She’s also doing workouts like mountain climbers and jump squats. states HIIT has a lot of benefits. “Anaerobic interval training uses the body’s reserves of energy and, after a workout, metabolism stays elevated and continues to burn calories for hours after the workout. This is due to something called the excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC) effect. With HIIT, you not only burn a lot of calories during the workout, but because of the high intensity you will continue to burn calories as your body replaces energy and repairs muscle proteins damaged during exercise.”
