With the busy lives that we all lead, it’s difficult to find enough hours in the day to get our everyday tasks done, much less find the time to work out. Unfortunately, because we all are so busy with everything else that we don’t find the time to work out the way we want, the scales have started inching upwards and we find ourselves knowing that in order to lose the weight, we have to be able to find some time to work out. This is where tabata training may be able to help.
For those of us who are extremely busy or even those of us who want to make the most of our workouts, interval training allows you a high intensity work out, in very little time. Tabata training does very much the same. The entire work out is only four minutes, but you find yourself doing intense spurts of exercise followed by shorter moments of rest. Kettle bells or other types of weights that will allow you to work muscle groups during these intense workouts will provide optimal results. Four minutes may not sound like much, but those 4 minutes have been determined to burn more calories than a 45 minute cardio work out, which will help you lose weight and become fit in a short amount of time, which is perfect for those of us who have almost impossible schedules.
