Don't you mean "Tabatha"? It's not a person you’re referring to? It is a workout? I did not forget the "h" in the spelling; it is the last name of the person who originally developed the concept of the workout, so yes it is a workout.
Tabata training is a high intensity interval training (HIIT) founded by Dr. Izumi Tabata and a team of researchers from the National Institute of Fitness and Sports in Tokyo. Typical Tabata structure is work hard for 20 seconds, rest for 10 seconds, and complete 8 rounds of one exercise.
While we do use this above format we have also included 40/20, 30/15 and 20/10 for one exercise. Intensity at 40 is hard, 30 is harder and 20 is hardest. We do also use the 20/10 in max intervals (one exercise) and mix intervals (two exercises) for 8 rounds.
Things you will find is that most movements are simple and compound, works large and major muscle groups, there is a immediate HIIT factor, and the format is easily adaptable to any type of workout. Take into consideration that faster is not better in many cases, less is better, bigger movements with large range of motion is better in most cases, and strength and power will equal power.
Hi guys!! Welcome to my thoughts and just some health information that I hope you can use! Let me just state this now. I am not a writer, English major, or even a blogger, so there will be mistakes in here.
