If you’re not familiar with Tabata, it’s an exercise concept that originated in Japan where researchers conducted studies on those performing moderate intensity workouts and those who engaged in high intensity workouts. I’ll spare you the full academic details, but in short, individuals in the high intensity group – who performed an exercise at maximal intensity for 20 seconds, followed by 10 seconds of rest for a total of 8 reps – showed superior aerobic and anaerobic results. And hence the concept of Tabata has taken off.
