Tabata Time III is a full body work-out that starts by doing 5 rounds with descending reps of 8 different exercises. Then, it ends with two Tabata rounds. Tabata training is a high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workout, featuring exercises that last four minutes. Tabata training was discovered by Japanese scientist, Dr. Izumi Tabata, and a team of researchers from the National Institute of Fitness and Sports in Tokyo. Each exercise in a given Tabata workout lasts only four minutes, but it’s likely to feel like one of the longest four minutes you’ve ever endured. The structure of the program is as follows:
For this workout you’ll alternate between 2 exercises for each Tabata. After every Tabata you’ll have a strength series with a plank, bicep curls, tricep extensions, and push-ups. Note that the reps for each exercise decrease each time.
For optimal results, keep your heart rate in your fat-burning zone by exercising at a level thats right for you throughout the work-out.
**Remember to take water breaks as needed throughout the workout.
30 reps of each exercise
