Anybody have any experience with Tabata workouts? I'm curious and thinking about trying it out, but looking for more info first.

Link: http://theheartysoul.com/4-minute-fat-burning-workout/?t=CE

"A Tabata workout is a high-intensity workout. Although it lasts only a few minutes, it will really kick your tail. They’re perfect for those of us who don’t have a lot of time to devote to fitness but want to get in a good workout.

Here’s the gist: sprint hard for 20 seconds; rest for 10 seconds; repeat for a total of four minutes (generally 6-8 rounds). That’s it. Sounds simple, but this short workout can burn some serious calories.

Developed by Dr. Izumi Tabata in Japan, Tabata exercise has been found to be superior to other types of exercises. In a 1996 study done by the National Institute of Health and Nutrition in Tokyo, Dr. Tabata and his colleagues studied two groups of athletes: one group did medium-intensity exercise for long periods of time, and the other did high-intensity exercise for short periods of time.

Tabata and his team observed the athletes for six weeks, and after that time, it was found that the first group increased their aerobic capacity (how long you can run) by 9.5% and their anaerobic capacity (how long you can run at maximum effort) by 0%, while the second group increased their aerobic capacity by 14% and their anaerobic capacity by 28%."

There was a guy who use to be a runner. He said he discovered that three cycles three days a week on a stationary bike built up cardio and took a lot less time to get and stay healthy and was a lot less strain on his knees.

I think it was a one min. warmup. 30 sec all out pedal, and a 15 sec. rest. The whole thing done three times.

I've heard of others ways to do the same thing, like wind sprints or even running in place. As long as you work the heart for even short periods of time, the body adapts.

But that video sounds good thanks for sharing.

Here's an interesting vid on yoga.

It's so interesting that such a short workout could be so beneficial. I still don't understand how it can be as effective as a longer one, but I'll add it to my usual routine and see what happens!

This kicked my butt way more than I expected. I did it with sprinting, and I lasted exactly four and a half minutes with two twenty-second breaks near the end... It was pretty fun, though. I'll try and get up to six minutes!
