WHAT IS TABATA?
Tabata is a form of high intensity interval training that was originally used by a Japanese researcher who studied athletes to see if their performance would improve with intervals of vigorous exercise, followed by a short rest.
Tabata workouts are 20 seconds of vigorous exercise, followed by a 10 second rest period. This pattern is followed multiple times throughout a workout session for an intense calorie-burning exercise.
Tabata is a great way to combine strength and cardio workouts. You can use the Tabata technique with almost any type of exercise like running, strength training, etc.- just do 20 seconds on, and 10 seconds off.
This type of workout definitely isn’t for everyone as it’s more intense than most other workout styles. Work up to do some of these workouts, you need to listen to your body and not go too hard because many types of Tabata workouts can be extremely vigorous.

CAN YOU BUILD MUSCLE WITH TABATA WORKOUTS?
Tabata high intensity interval exercises are a great way to build and maintain muscle mass. Tabata workouts add stress to your muscle tissues, which your body then heals and rebuilds stronger, which means muscle tissue increases.
Your fast twitch muscle fibers are targeted by this type of training- these muscle fibers can generate lots of force, but are quick to fatigue. The good news is that fast twitch muscles are responsible for the size and definition of a muscle, meaning you increase your strength levels.
Tabata can help your lean body tissue increase and your fat mass decrease.
