How Effective Is Tabata Exercise?
Tabata exercise is a type of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). Your workout involves going all out doing an exercise for a short period of time (like 20 seconds) and then resting half the amount of that time (10 seconds) before doing another 20-second set.
At the end of 8 sets, which took a total of four minutes to complete, you’re spent. For runners, it could be sprints for those 20 seconds. Studies have shown that Tabata exercise not only improves fitness levels, but can also be used as a weight loss tool.
