Tabata Training; What the Heck is That?

on January 17, 2012

Hello to you all!

I just taught my first “Tabata” class today. It was so much fun!

Tabata is a very old style of interval training designed in Japan. However, it has recently become very popular and is invading the fitness clubs.

Basically, you do a 20 second interval, 10 second rest of one exercise, then do the same with 3 more exercises, then repeat those 4 exercise 8 times.

I chose some exercises like: squats, side to side hops, push ups and sit ups as a group of four. In four minutes (your 8 cycles of 4 exercises), you will feel like you’ve had a really good workout. Just four minutes! It’s nuts.

Here is a link to learn more about it:

You can do it at home, but you need to pay attention to your intervals; get a stopwatch.

It’s always great to try something new with your workouts. Shock your body!

Have a great, healthy day!
