Tabata Method

Posted on: September 2nd, 2011 by Andy No Comments

Finishers can be a great way to burn out a muscle group at the end of your workout.  One of my favorites is the Tabata Method. It’s a form of High-intensity interval training involving 20 seconds of ultra-intense exercise, followed by 10 seconds of rest, repeated continuously for 4 minutes (8 cycles). We usually pick one muscle group that we really want to burn out, but the exercise itself can be anything you want: curls, bench dips, lunges, pushups, military burpees, bench press, etc. or have some fun and do medicine ball tosses with a partner. Give it a try, especially if you’re doing a more traditional workout and want to add an aspect of cardio to your routine.
