What is Tabata?

Tabata is an early form of high-intensity interval training (HIIT). It started in the 90's by Izumi Tabata, a Japanese professor who simultaneously used it to get speed skaters in shape for the Olympics. 

It involves short, four-minute bouts of explosive interval moves done for 20 seconds each for eight rounds, with a 10-second break between each round.

The Tabata workout below can not only be virtually completed anywhere, but done so quickly while still ensuring an effective exercise routine!
