Strength in Conditioning for Thursday October 1, 2015
Tabata training is the only kind of training where the clock is your best friend, and also your worst enemy! In a tabata workout, each exercise is performed in twenty second intervals followed by a ten second rest. This cycle is then repeated eight times, for a grand total of four minutes.
The good side… its twenty second intervals. The not so good side… its twenty second intervals! Though it may not seem like it now, by the time round three of your first tabata comes around, those intervals will start to feel like the longest 20 seconds of your life!
Keep in mind that your score in each tabata workout is your worst score of all eight rounds. Because of this it is quite important to not blow out all of your energy the first round or two. Try and pick a pace you can sustain while still striving for the best score possible!
Tabata workouts are HIIT training (High Intensity Interval Training) at its finest! Enjoy!
