So you don’t have time to work out? You say there aren’t enough hours in the day? FALSE.

Well, now you do. Enter Tabata training.

Tabata (pronounced “tuh-bah-tuh”) is a form of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) in which people work out at a maximum level for 20 seconds, rest for 10 seconds, and then repeat the sequence for a total of eight rounds (four minutes in all).

According to Lacey Peters, fitness director at the Niles-Buchanan YMCA, “This type of interval training quickly increases the heart rate, then allows it to come down for a short rest. It makes your body work harder to climb back up after each interval, rather than keeping your heart at one rate.”
