40 Different Tabata Workout Ideas

by Mike on February 24, 2012


What is a tabata workout? A tabata workout is an interval repetition workout based upon 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest repeated for eight rounds. The 1996 journal article authored by Dr. Tabata, proved that high intensity workouts increase anaerobic and aerobic capacities… which basically means they get you fit! The tabata workout was created based upon these findings.

Why should you do tabata workouts? Tabata workouts are a great way to save time, lose fat, and have a fun workout. OK… maybe not your idea of fun but the main reason we all do tabata style workouts is simply because they work! Most tabata workouts are under 5 minutes and will get you losing fat and looking better in no time.

So just remember for a basic tabata work out: 20 seconds of movement, then 10 seconds of rest, for 8 rounds. It might seem easy at first but once you get to round 6 or 7 it gets really tough. Also, one more thing that you need is a tabata timer. And it just so happens that we have a real handy tabata workout timer for you to use. http://www.beach-fitness.com/tabata/
