What is Tabata training?

Used by elite athletes in Olympic-level sports, Tabata training is a form of HIIT training that Izumi Tabata developed at the National Institute of Fitness and Sports in Japan in the early 1990s. and his team studied groups of people doing moderate- and high-intensity exercise. They found that short bursts of high-intensity training were better for building muscle and burning fat than longer bursts of moderate-intensity activity. The result was a form of high-intensity interval training called Tabata, with shorter exercises and rest periods.

We did some research and spoke with Izumi Tabata, as well as an exercise specialist, to find out what the training is all about.
