Tabata Training Workout in Fashion Active Wear, Printed Constance Tank & Erica Short in Blue on Mat

Tabata training is one of the most popular forms of high intensity interval training (HIIT). It consists of rounds of exercises in a specific 20-seconds-on, 10-seconds-off interval. It is a fantastic full-body anaerobic and aerobic workout. It improves athletic performance, improves glucose metabolism, and is one of the few workouts that can put you in the “Fat Burning Zone”. In addition the Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption (EPOC) effect is extreme with Tabata Training. Please remember although these are fast as can be intervals having proper form is always more important the speed.

Think of Tabata Training as being short but sweet. You will sure be feeling it when you push yourself to the limit in your 20 seconds max reps, it will be hard and demanding. Yet completing of the workout is too sweet for you both physically and mentally (feeling proud for overcoming the challenge) to not try it.

Studies have found individuals who can perform HIIT have a stronger human willpower! Let’s use that willpower you have stored up to look strong and sexy in your new holiday Karma jacket and tights.
