Tabata Training (20/10)
But what is Tabata Training? Tabata is a special high-intensity training (HIIT) invented by Dr. Izumi Tabata, at the Institute of Fitness and Sport in Tokyo back in 1996. It consists of 8 rounds each consisting of 20 seconds of training followed by 10 of recovery, for a total of 4 minutes. We recommend4-5 rounds as mentioned.
You choose the single exercise (or multiples) and perform it for the entire duration. These can be for example burpees, squats, shots, etc … the important thing is that they are performed to the maximum of your capacity.
It has been scientifically proven that 3 sessions of 4 minutes per week of Tabata are more effective than 5 hours of running (LISS).
It is also true that in order for this result to be maintained, the training sessions must be performed as conducted in the study, or on a cycloergometer or similar. This does not mean that it is an effective training for aerobic power and endurance strength, even when combined with force movements.
Tabata is a very short workout, but a tough one. Can be practiced with friends with or without tools.
