TABATA Training

If you saw the title and had no idea what I am talking about, don’t feel like an outlier.  Most people have never heard of Tabata training.  Even I didn’t hear about this style of exercise until somewhat recently.  I am glad that I did, though.  I believe this is one of the most amazing ways to challenge your body, increase endurance, and light the fat burning furnace.  If things have grown stale on your pursuit of physical excellence or you’re looking for a great way to kick start your weight management program, this type of exercise training is as powerful as any out there.  Plus, when you’re short on time, this is the perfect method to crush then carry on with your day.

Tom Ropes

I don’t want to bore you with the exact statistics or any fancy mumbo jumbo.  Here’s the basic rundown:  Tabata training is named after a Doctor who studied the effects of 8 sets of an exercise broken into 20 seconds of all out effort and 10 seconds of rest.  This equals 4 minutes of total work that will leave you completely drained.  This Doctor tested this type of training against regular bouts of exercise and found a significant increase in aerobic capacity in the Tabata group.  The point is, if you incorporate this style of training into your weekly regimen, you will spice up your workouts, keep things fresh and interesting, challenge your body in a different capacity, and improve your overall body function.

This type of workout is not for the faint of heart.  It can be the most grueling 4 minutes of your life.  Each second can tick by slower than the one before it.  By the end of your 8 sets, you will gasp for air and beg for a nap.  It is a supreme challenge that forces your brain to push your body through pain.  It is as much a mental exercise as a physical one.  Tabata is one of my favorite ways to end a weight workout or simply hit a quick sweat session, if I am on the go.

Here is a sample list of some exercises that can be done in a Tabata format. 

  • Kettlebell Swings
  • Battle Rope Slams
  • Jump Rope
  • Jumping Jacks
  • Goblet Squats
  • Lunges
  • Burpees
  • Bench Step Ups
  • Dumbbell Power Cleans
  • Push-Ups
  • Squat Jumps
  • Sprints
  • Mountain Climbers
  • Pull-Ups
  • Deadlifts
  • Rowing Machine

You’re only limited by your imagination when it comes to incorporating Tabata training.  It can be done with virtually any exercise on the planet.  I challenge you to add two Tabata sessions a week into your training plan.  After two weeks, add one more session for the next two weeks. See how your body reacts to the new style!  I have no doubt that this will improve your total body performance and help you blast some stubborn fat.  Let us know if you have any questions or tell us how you felt after a Tabata session!  Get out there and Wreck It Every Day!
