What is Tabata?

Tabata is a workout protocol that was created by Dr Izumi Tabata, who found that shorter, more intense workouts provide quicker results for increased cardiovascular capacity, endurance and weight loss.

Tabata is becoming increasingly popular with good reason!

It is already the new go-to workout for athletes and fitness professionals for a super-aerobic cardio workout that shows fast results. They can be both intense and challenging for athletes of all levels.

What to consider?

As Tabata consists of higher intensity exercise performed in short bursts with even shorter rest periods, it is important to start Tabata with easy, simple exercises that allow your body time to adjust to the new level of intensity over time.

When our Tabata expansion is live – we suggest starting with the beginner workouts which can be just as challenging as they are still 4 minutes in length and involve some high intensity exercises.

How often to perform Tabata?

You begin by performing these workouts no more than 3 times per week and allowing yourself at least one full day of recovery in between each workout to heal.

Your body needs to increase cardiovascular capacity and strength slowly to support your heart and lungs. Gradually build up your fitness level by adding another 1-2 workouts to your weekly training regime once you feel your recovery time is improving.

So, stay tuned, ladies. The Tabata workout will be appearing on the28 Day Weight Loss Challenge App soon! We’re so excited!
