Walk into any gym and you're likely to see round or interval training. What is it? First off, it's hard, and second, it works! You perform short bursts of intense activity followed by a short rest then repeat.
There's one style though that stands out from the rest, the Tabata Interval. Originally developed by Dr Izumi Tabata, he discovered this effective workout formula training Olympians. So you know it works!
A classic Tabata Interval follows 20 seconds of work with a 10 second rest. Repeat for 8 rounds for a total of 4 minutes. That's it! Paired with a proper warm-up and cool down, Tabata Intervals are a safe, effective and efficient workout. Let's look at 3 examples you can do ANYWHERE!
As always consult with a doctor before starting any routine and listen to your body. Start with a proper warm-up and use proper form... ALWAYS!
