The 4 Minute Fat Burn Miracle Tabata Training

While workouts are fun, goals are equally difficult to achieve. And that’s quite annoying. You may aim for muscle strengthening, muscle building or flexibility, and you get all of it with various styles of workout programs. But if your goal is to lose weight, you may want something more in your exercise routine that’s fun, yet helps you burn those fat cells faster. Well, ‘Tabata Training’ is one of the many variations of fat burning exercises that you may want to know about. So, what is Tabata all about?

Tabata training is a high-intensity interval training where 4 sets of 4 exercises are done in 4 minutes each. It is a circuit training where the resting time is shorter than the exercise time, which increases your heart rate and promotes fat burn.

The History Of Tabata

Tabata training was first discovered in 1996 by Dr. Izumi Tabata and a team of researchers from The National Institute of Fitness and Sports in Tokyo. It all started with the idea of figuring out if short timed high-intensity exercises followed by even shorter rest intervals can improve the skaters’ performance. The experiment was done with two groups. The 1st group would exercise for 5 days a week with moderate intensity of workout that lasted for one hour for six weeks. The other group exercised for 4 days a week, with 4 high-intensity workouts, each lasting for 4 minutes. Rest between each set was just 10 seconds.
