Tabata Intervals

tabata intervals

One of the exercise routines that I started doing are Tabata Intervals.  Tabata Intervals is the most intense 4 minute workout that you'll ever do.  The key is to go as hard as you can 8 times for 20 seconds followed by 10 seconds of rest time after each rep.  You can do this with a variety of exercises such as Jumping Jacks, sprinting, Knee Highs, Jumping rope, dead lifts, mountain climbers, and Burpees.

Tabata Intervals will help you raise your heart rate and Metabolism.  You'll burn fat during and even for many hours after the workout during rest. This high intensity workout originally designed for professional athletes to burn as much fast as fast as possible while not losing any muscle mass as opposed to tradition methods of weight loss such as long distance cardio that eat up more muscle than fat in the long run.  That is why you see so many joggers (especially long distance runners) who are not over weight but have no muscle mass or definition.  This is a good exercise if your a person who's short on time.

The workout I will be doing will consist of Burpees, Knee highs, Jumping Jacks, and Moutain climbers as shown in the video below.  You can mix and match any routine you'd like.

Update this my 2nd attempt at tabata intervals

Good Luck, stay healthy, stay confidnet, and believe in yourself
