Holiday Tabata: Calorie-Blaster Workout

It’s hard to avoid festivity eating and cold-weather hibernation inclinations. This is why you need a holiday Tabata calorie blaster workout!

Have you heard of Tabata? Have you done Tabata before?  Well, in case you don’t know, “Tabata training was discovered by Japanese scientist Dr. Izumi Tabata and a team of researchers from the National Institute of Fitness and Sports in Tokyo, and research has shown that high-intensity interval training has more impact on both the aerobic and anaerobic systems.”

Tabata is a good workout to do during the holidays when time is short, days are shorter, and family time has increased. Tabata is simple. Perform each exercise HARD for 20 seconds, with 10 seconds rest in between. Boom.

Are you ready to go? Grab a friend or family member and have a blast while you have a calorie-blaster of a workout!
