I’ve got a scorcher of a weekend workout for you today.
Tabata This will leave you in a heap of fat burning sweatiness done right.
First if you’re new around here some background on “Tabata”
How did Tabata come about? Tabata was founded by a Japanese scientist named Izumi Tabata and fellow colleagues at a department of physiology in Japan.
Izumi and his fellow scientists decided to conduct a study to compare moderate intensity training with high intensity training.
He conducted the tests on 2 groups of athletes;
One of the groups used the moderate intensity interval training and the other using high intensity interval training.(HIIT)
In group one; the athletes were training in moderate intensity workouts (70% intensity/a jog ) for five days a week for a total of six weeks with each training session lasting an hour.
Group two trained in the high intensity workouts for 4 days a week for a total of 6 weeks with each session lasting 4 minutes, at 20 seconds of intense training (170%,Intensity,Think sprinting all out) and 10 seconds of rest.
What were the results of the tests?
Group 1 had a significant increase in the aerobic system (cardiovascular system). However, the anaerobic system (muscles) gained little or no results at all.
Group 2 showed much improvement in all their athletes. Their aerobic systems increased much more than group ones, and their anaerobic(muscular) systems increased by 28%!.
Conclusion: Not only did high intensity interval training have more of an impact on the aerobic systems; it had an impact on overall muscular strength and endurance as well.
SO>>>>MORE FAT LOSS and MUSCLE GAIN in LESS TIME!
Let’s get down to the workout then.
