3 mins work 1 min rest ratio in training which helps explain the weight loss results
Subjects did Tabata training five days a week for six weeks (a total of 120 minutes of exercise over the month and a half) improved both their aerobic and anaerobic endurance.
In fact, subject’s anaerobic fitness increased by a whopping 28%.On the other side of the coin the standard cardio group exercised the same number of days, but for a full hour per session (for a total of 1,800 minutes over the study period).
1800 minutes work cut down to just 120 minutes!!!
I know it sounds good but don’t jump right in
I always advice people build up to it slowly to get the best resultsHere is the first part of the interval program I do when its time to shape up in a hurry
Given its done after technical training i only do them 3-4 times per week Maximum
10 seconds on 10 seconds off 8 times with 1 min break between sets 3X
15 seconds on 10 seconds off 8 times with 50 seconds break between sets 3x
20 seconds on 10 seconds off 8 times with 45 seconds break between sets 3X
You can hit the intervals with any exercise like running, jumping, burpees
hitting pads my personal “favorite”, the airdyne bike.
no coasting possible.. Gets awesome results.
