The TABATA Interval
20 seconds of max intensity
10 seconds rest
repeated for FOUR minutes
In 1996, Japanese fitness researcher Dr. Izumi Tabata set up an
experiment to compare the effectiveness of:
Short high-intensity anaerobic workoutsto
Long steady-state aerobic workouts
Tabata assigned one group to
a workout consisting of 20 second bursts of maximum intensity exercise (w/10 seconds of recovery time),
and another group to a standard 60 minute steady state aerobic workout.
TABATA INTERVALS send your Metabolic Rate through the roof, Giving your body no choice but to SCORCH FAT.
Most weight-loss programs cause a loss of muscle tissue. TABATA Training calls for
QUICK MUSCLE RECOVERY, which orders toned muscle fibers from the body, rather than burning muscle as energy.
