The Tabata Method is a form of High-Intensity Interval Training in which you alternate between short bursts of high intensity training and shorter less intense recovery periods. In its most basic form Tabata is 20 seconds of hard training followed by 10 seconds of rest repeated 8 times. Hence the alternative name of the 4 minute workout (8 x 20 seconds effort + 8 x 10 second rest = 4 minutes). A number of different exercises can be used in Tabata training, the idea being to get the whole body involved and work all the major muscle groups. It is excellent for improving cardiovascular fitness, shedding fat and building lean muscle. The Tabata method was originally pioneered by head coach for the Japanese Olympic speed skating team, Irisawa Koichi, but is named after Japanese Scientist Izumu Tabata, who was the first to publish the method. According to Izumi Tabata, one four-minute Tabata session is equal to an hour of jogging, an hour of moderate cycling, two hours of walking, an hour of Zumba or two hours of yoga.
