It’s Olympic Inspired Tabata Week
At Extreme Results Fitness!
by Siarra T. Mong
Tabata is the name of a Japanese researcher who discovered an interesting way to increase both anaerobic, and aerobic pathways at the same time for Olympic speed skaters. It’s one of those strange training programs that seems to fit across disciplines: it’s excellent for bicyclists, speed skaters, Olympic lifters, or the person looking to lose fat quickly. This training method is so simple, yet so incredibly great at helping those who use this training method to reach their peak performance.
What is it? It’s simple: take one exercise, and perform it in the following manner:
- For twenty seconds, do as many repetitions as possible.
- Rest for ten seconds.
- Repeat seven more times!
That’s it! You’re done in four minutes!
Eight sets of “as many reps as you can get done,” followed with a brief ten second rest-simple, and effective.
