Tabata intervals rebut the all too frequent statement, “I had no time,” fast and final. Implementation: Tabata Intervals are very simple. The principle is 20 seconds maximum load, 10 seconds rest and repeat everything eight times. So: 8x (20 seconds maximum exposure, 10 sec rest) = 4 minutes training. Tabata intervals have the advantage that they can be performed with almost every exercise, you can do Tabata squats, jumping rope, push-ups-, crunches, and much more, the creativity knows no bounds. So you have completed four exercises in just 16 minutes a workout, which is very demanding and intense. Tabata was able to prove in its studies that this type of training improves aerobic and anaerobic capacity of an already advanced strong athlete . From my own experience I can say that this is true. Just for martial artists Tabata Intervals are an absolute must.
