Tabata – Tabata interval training is the single most effective type of high intensity interval training, its also the most intense by far, and surprisingly its the shortest in duration, it only last for four minutes… but those four minutes produce remarkable effects.
Tabata training was discovered by Dr. Izumi Tabata and a team of researchers from the National Institute of Fitness and Sports in Tokyo.
Dr. Tabata discovered that this kind of interval training produces much better results than aerobic training. This included building as much muscular endurance as forty five minutes of normal cardio training. In fact in the study the subjects increased their anaerobic capacity by over a quarter as well a substantial increase in their aerobic fitness. Something to keep in mind was that the the subjects were as fit as race horses before they started the trial, so the improvements were remarkable.
This makes it a very versatile program, you can use tabata for weight loss as well most improving performance in most aerobic and anaerobic sport.
HIIT – High Intensity Interval Training is all about speed. Speed during exercises – it’s intense. Speed during workouts – usually they last less than 20 minutes and speed for results – an hiit workout will lose up to 9 times more fat than a similar cardio workout. It is mostly used for individuals trying to lose weight but the rate at which it can make you fitter makes it valuable for all types of exercise. It has a number of distinct goals and differences which make it unique.
I really like them…No, I dont like them – I love them!
I’m all the more excited to see my improvement by the end of the year. 🙂
