You can actually burn fats in 4 minutes workout SAME with hours of cardio/swim/bicycle. But of course this will requires more intensity.
This workout is known as TABATA. To be honest, I’ve been looking/research about this for quite sometime already. Based on peoples reviews and experience and MY EXPERIENCE , this workout definitely good for plateau busting/time-efficient/incinerate those last bits of fats (lower abs)/ Weight & fatloss/ Increase stamina/increase endurance/increase strength.
Named after a Japanese researcher on fitness stuff in Japan (you dont say).
Involve 20 second high intensity workout/10 second rest, total of 30 second. do this by involving 8 exercise(eg push ups). 30x8 = 240 second = 4 minutes!
why this workout is good?
- HIGH HIGH HIGH AFTER BURN EFFECT
- increase aerobic and anaerobic capacity
So..I have my own simple Tabata workout I would like to share.
20 second pushups as many as possible!!!! knee pushup if you cant. then, take 10 second rest
20 seconds of LIGHT/FREE weight squat as many as possibles, then take 10 seconds rest.
20 second of kettle bell swing(or anything/water bottles etc) as many as possible, then take 10 second rest.
20 seconds of light/free shoulder press (prefer with light weight) as many as possible, then take 10 seconds rest.
THEN, you start from the beginning…total of 30 secondx4x2=240second=4 minutes!
You rest for 1-2 minutes..then repeat if you want ( i will repeat for sure for maximum fatloss)
I would suggest doing this in the morning, do 2-3 cycles. So that you kick-start your metabolism, your AFTER BURN EFFECT will be high.
