Named after the Japanese physician and researcher, Dr. Izumi Tabata, Tabata is a form of interval training characterised by short but very high intensity steps with minimal rest between. These sessions have been shown to induce significant concomitant changes to both the anaerobic and aerobic energy systems.
Invariably they consist of 8 repeats of 20 seconds very fast all-out steps, with only 10 seconds break between.
If you are new to speedwork, please take care running the fast steps.
