Tabata Workout Tips

Tabata Workout Tips

1. Know the formula. Tabata is 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest for a total of eight rounds per move.

2. Work to your level. If you’re starting out, be prepared to take a break between moves — or even to skip a set here and there. I didn’t, and I paid for it in soreness!

3. There’s an app for that. The last thing you want is to have to worry about counting or timing anything, so have an app do it for you. There are several Tabata apps out there that will do the thinking for you.

4. Start small. I thought four moves wouldn’t feel like a workout. It did.

5. Be prepared to get hooked. I’m already planning my next Tabata workout. I’m thinking of throwing some planks in.

6. Warm up and cool down. Do some quick walking or a few jumping jacks to warm up. And because you focus so intensely on one move for four minutes, make sure to take the time to stretch out your shaky limbs afterwards.
