This type of interval training was developed by Dr. Tabata in 1996 and it is a session in which you work at maximum intensity for 20 seconds, followed by a 10-second break in a sequence of 8 series.

Dr. Tabata found that subjects who did this workout five days a week for six weeks increased their anaerobic capacity by 28% and their aerobic capacity by 14%. These results were quite revolutionary at the time, and since then tabata and other similar methods such as high intensity interval training (HIIT) have gained popularity in the world of fitness, both among beginners and among professional athletes.

This question leads us to the introduction of the article: the excuses! Lack of time is an argument that many people turn to and the tabata method offers an impeccable solution: the few minutes that tabata training lasts silence any “I never have time …”!

A study from Auburn University found that it would take 20 minutes of normal cardio training to burn off the amount of calories burned in a 4-minute tabata session. Sounds good, right?

The benefits and results of tabata are obtained if you work giving your best while the exercise lasts. This method is based on the intensity of the work during a specific period of time and not on the repetitions of an exercise. As with many other techniques, with the tabata you may not see immediate results, but without a doubt, you will notice benefits if you incorporate it into your training routine.
