Tabatas for Fat Loss
Q: Hello, I am looking to start a training program you designed. In it you have some days of HIIT. I am not having much luck coming up with a HIIT routine. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
My Answer: Do Tabata workouts on your HIIT days. Tabatas are an exercise performed continuously for 20 seconds followed by 10 seconds of rest and repeated 8 times. Typically you choose full body movements for Tabatas:
- jump rope
- stationary bike
- dumbbell thrusters
Choose one exercise and perform 8 sets of 20 second bursts. There are Tabata apps you can use to time your workouts.
