Tabata Training

My favourite type of training is Tabata. So basically it is about repitions. I will give an easy example (the number of repitions and exercises can vary):

You start with 3 different exercises, you do all of them for let’s say 20 seconds with 10 seconds of break. And you do all of them 3 or 4 times, so it would look like that:

  • Push ups for 20 seconds, then 10 seconds break
  • Squats for 20 seconds, then 10 seconds break
  • Plank for 20 seconds, then 10 seconds break

and then you start over again and do the same thing for 3 (or more) times. The exercises here are randomly chosen. You can do any kinds of exercises. After you are done with one “set” of exercises you continue to choose the next 3 exercises and do the same thing. And then a 3rd “set” and a 4th “set”. So all in all you will do around 9 – 12 different exercises, you repeat all of them 3 or 4 times and it usually takes around 30 – 40 minutes.

I downloaded an app that is called Tabata Timer and it works great for this kind of exercise. You just put in the number of rounds, the number of exercises, the time of the exercise and the time for the break.
