Not for the faint of heart, Tabata training came over from Japan and has created a bit of a whirlwind ever since.
In its simplest form, all you need is a large space fit for running (or a treadmill). Up for a challenge? Run as hard as you can for 20 seconds, maximal exertion. Rest 10 seconds, then repeat 7 times. I’ll see you in 4 minutes.
Training at this level of intensity is incredibly difficult yet extremely worthwhile. You’ll torch body fat, grow your muscles, increase strength and power, improve VO2 Max, and bump up your aerobic capacity — all in a limited amount of time. This isn’t one of those 10-minute trainers or fitness fads you see on TV. Just good old-fashioned hard work. Ready to take your fitness routine to the next level? See you in class!
Remember: 8 sets of 20 seconds each exercise, 10 seconds rest in between sets.
You can do anything for 20 seconds!
