Tabata Protocol

Updated: Apr 8, 2021

One of my absolute favourite workout is the challenging TABATA Protocol.

Izumi Tabata is... or was... the Head of the Ritsumeikan University Graduate School of Sport and Health Science in Kyoto - Japan.

He is famous for his so called ‘TABATA Protocol’ which is an High-intensity interval type of training.

Basically the workout consist on 20 seconds of work and 10 seconds off, 8 exercises - 4 min work in total.

Rest for one minute at the end then repeat again.

This type of work will improve aerobic and anaerobic fitness level.

It can be used for core strength, weight training and even for runners doing for example 20 seconds sprint followed by 10 seconds rest - 8 times.

It will raise your metabolism so much that you will still burning fat even hours after your workout!!

Try this workout and let me how you felt.

You know you can do it:

- Mountain climber

- Jump squats

- Burpees

- Triceps dips

- Press up on a bench or on your knees or feet

- Sit ups

- Dumbbells push press (or use water bottles...)

20 seconds on 10 off -

1 minute rest at the end - repeat.

Be strong, feel strong!!
