Tabata: a short but super-intense workout. Yes, it’s true…you don’t have to exercise hours at a time to get maximum results.
Before starting my personal training sessions, I’d leisurely roll to the gym once in a blue moon. I’d pop on my iPod, jog for 20 minutes, and leave before breaking a sweat. I avoided all weights, machines, and anything else that looked complicated…it just wasn’t my thing to lunge, squat, and press in a jam-packed facility.
That is, until I met David Ashley, owner of Fitness By Design AZ.
My bi-weekly training sessions with dear Dave lasts for a mere half hour at a time; but truth be told, it’s a complete full-body, sweaty, smelly, fulfilling workout. I never knew a complete workout could last less than 60 minutes total.
And because Dave is so on top of the latest exercise trends, he’s now offering a solution to your new year’s resolution…the one you’re likely denying now that we’re clear into 2013.
It’s called Tabata Training—and it’s more than just a recent workout fad. The whole idea was developed by Tokyo’s Dr. Izumi Tabata, who figured out a way to achieve anaerobic and aerobic benefits from a short and simple workout integrating a variety of exercises. The intense half-hour session will increase your metabolic rate so that you will burn calories and fat for up to 30 hours after completing your workout.
Tabata originated in the late 1990s, when Dr. Tabata studied cyclists who performed 20 seconds of all-out effort followed by 10 seconds of rest. The participants repeated seven to eight sets of the exertion-rest intervals, equaling just about 4 minutes of actual workout time. The results were so successful, that so began Tabata Training.
