High intensity fitness training, developed for Olympic speed skaters and adapted for us common folk. When Katelyn recently approached me about giving her blog a read, I thought I’d check what Tabata is all about.
Developed by a Japanese sports and health science professional, Tabata uses a simple structure. 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest. The idea is to push yourself hard in those 20 seconds, to get the aerobic gains. If you’re already fit and wanting to improve your stamina or endurance, this could be right up your street.
If you’re looking for something new to try or you’re lacking time to squeeze in your fitness plans, why not give Tabata a shot?
I tend to cover most of these exercises in my Crossfit sessions, so I know they work out and make you sweat. If you’re not near a gym or away from your normal routine this could be a simple set of exercises to undertake.
It goes without saying, if you’re new to exercise or coming back from a break – always take it easy to start with and get checked out by a doctor or sports professional if anything is concerning you. I am not a health professional, listen to your own body.
