Most of you are probably familiar with a tabata style workout. This is a 4 minute workout with 8 rounds of 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest. Occasionally, I’ll have an athlete ask if they can just work through the rest period (usually just for the first couple rounds). But the power of this protocol comes from the high level of intensity an athlete can maintain. Without the rest, the intensity goes down.

This method was developed by Dr. Izumi Tabata with speed skating coach Irisawa Koichi for the Japanese speed skaters. Click here for more info on Dr. Tabata’s work.
