Tabata Training - High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)
The type of training I am referring to is a different form of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) called Tabata. The basis of Tabata Training is four minutes of intense interval training/circuit training. A good example is sprinting for 20 seconds and then walking for 10 seconds - Repeat 7 more times for a total of 8 sets (which equals approximately four minutes).
Tabata Training can be done with a number of different exercises. The idea is to use an exercise that gets the whole body involved, or at least the major muscle groups. Tabata Training can be done with barbells, dumbells, kettlebells or just bodyweight exercises.
This time of year brings to mind those things in life that are most important. It reminds us to focus on all the good things around us. Wishing warm greetings for you and your family during this holiday.
