What Is Tabata Training?

At Bombshell Bootcamp – we do a mix of workouts ranging from traditional bootcamp exercises, cross-fit, yoga, weight training, kettlebell workouts, sandbag workouts and many others. We frequently do interval training and HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) because it burns the most calories and maximizes results.

This week we are doing “Tabata Week” at bootcamp and will be doing Tabata workouts. What is Tabata? Well, it’s a form of high intensity interval training that is done in 4 minute intervals. It was originally started in Japan and has become very popular worldwide.

Any exercise can be incorporated into the Tabata training. However the basic outline of the Tabata training method are as follows:
•     4 minutes long (whole Tabata Session)
•     20 seconds of intense training followed by 10 seconds of rest
•     Total of 8 sessions or rounds – which is 4min total

See you all tonight at 6pm!
