Tabata is also know as High Intensity Training (HIIT). It focuses on short, intense workouts designed to give you the same results as a longer moderate workout. A typical routine consists of eight rounds with 20 seconds of intensity followed by 10 seconds of rest. These are short, basic workouts that don’t require equipment. You can get the Tabata Pro Timer app to guide you and if you want more specific instruction, try the 12 Minute Athlete app.
If you have a treadmill or elliptical that’s gathering dust at home, bring it to life with one of these Virtual Walks DVDs. You can take a run on the beach, through the forest, Balinese rice fields and more.
