Has anyone tried Tabata? My gym offers it and it sounds like it’s an effective workout in a short period of time, however sounds scary and hardcore. I’m not sure if I could make it through so I’d love to hear from any survivors!

Looked it up on Dr Google, hmmm does sound very interesting in theory. If you can survive the intensity it sounds of great success! Yeah, I'll be lurking too to hear experts describe it for them.

I've done Tabata before. It's intense but I didn't hate it. Until it involved burpees, then I hate any workout with burpees.

Yee-ouch, burp, upchuck, two I can see why, at least with my crabby self- centered Precious Pouch, she still rules ME instead of me ruling her, maybe it will always be that way!

Tabata base workouts are great! We can do anything for 20 seconds at a time.

You are not wrong. It is scary. It is hardcore. The fact is, this type of High Intensity Interval Training has been proven to have some of the best fat loss benefits of any cardio based workouts. Add some resistance training to the HIIT and you increase the benefit.

You should absolutely try it and let us know what you thought.

@NurseMichael I went and observed today, halfway through I realized it is pretty much the same cardio class I attended on Friday. (Same instructor) It definitely is hard but I’m going to start going next week. I do like the idea of a shorter intense workout.
