Tabata is my exercise tip from my trainer Aaron Manheimer, owner of Chicago’s Wattage. High-intensity interval training deprives your body of oxygen so your metabolism stays elevated throughout your day. Plus you don’t have to spend hours slaving on a cardio machine!
This is how Tabata works with each set taking only four minutes total:
- Workout hard for 20 seconds (maximum heart rate)
- Rest for 10 seconds
- Do 8 rounds
You can do this on a VersaClimber, Airdyne bike, rowing machine, or as sprints on a treadmill. You can also do burpees or use a jump rope. This means no gym is required! Strive to do 3 sets.
I suggest getting the Tabata Pro App which can help time yourself.
