TABATA: Exercises that effectively melt fat and tighten the legs

Twenty seconds of Tabata – an intense workout that can often seem difficult and uncomfortable, but is quick and easy to practice. Break up with her while you’re thinking of giving up. Sweating, fat burning, hellish workout…and all that in just four minutes.

Daily exercise is important for health, and it is also possible at home

Dr. Michelle Olson, professor of kinesiology at Auburn Montgomery University, in her research study tested 15 subjects who did tabata training with push-ups and squats.

They were asked to do their best for 20 minutes of training. The result is that around 14 calories are burned per minute during exercise, and the number of calories the body burns at rest doubles even more than 30 minutes after the training is over. Of course, every body is different, so these numbers may vary. That’s why tabata is an excellent fat-killing exercise that you can do in a short amount of time.

What is tabata

Intensive training that lasts about four minutes. Within it, the person training alternately changes the intervals of their activities. First, he exercises for 20 seconds using maximum effort and all the capabilities of his body, then there is a rest interval of 10 seconds, and then he exercises again for 20 seconds.

“In this way, it is necessary to do this sequence of exercises eight times. Tabata training is about reaching peak anaerobic capacity, so it’s important to choose exercises that you know will get your heart rate up,” noted Tabata trainer Jay Hammond.

A physical discipline that has been around for a long time. It was designed by Dr. Izumi Tabata in 1996 in Tokyo for the purposes of preparing athletes for the Olympic Games. This type of training can be beneficial for anyone, even if they are not involved in professional sports.

Why is tabata effective?

High-intensity interval training is very effective for burning fat, because it forces the body to exert itself, then return to rest, and exert itself again.

Given that the intensity here is raised to the maximum and requires 100 percent effort, it takes a shorter time to achieve results, that is, a shorter time compared to other forms of training to achieve the same effects.
