What is Tabata Training?

Tabata Training is an HIIT style training method developed by Izumi Tabata that he discovered in this groundbreaking study where he found that doing 20 seconds of high-intensity work followed by 10 seconds of rest for 8 rounds would increase fat burning and conditioning much more efficiently and effectively than regular old steady-state type cardio.

Now, if you add up those 8 rounds it only adds up to 4 minutes of training total which might sound like it would be pretty easy, that is where you would be wrong. When you do Tabata Training you have to go all out for that 20 seconds, it is much more brutal than it sounds and the 10-second rest is not near enough for your body to recover. This is why it is such a killer and it’s also why it is so effective at fat burning.

The nice thing about Tabata Training is you can use a wide variety of exercises with it. If you have a favorite exercise you can probably find a way to do a Tabata style workout with that exercise. You should try and stick with whole body and compound exercises for Tabata Training though, isolated exercises tend to not work very well. If you think about it doing a Tabata workout with calf raises might really blast your calves but it isn’t going to do very much for you in terms of fat burning and conditioning.

Now that you have a good idea what Tabata Training is, let’s get to what you really came here for, the workouts:
