Abstract

LEARNING OBJECTIVE

Tabata and a variety of short HIIT formats are highly popular intense forms of interval training. Research shows that Tabata and short HIIT workouts can be used to increase both aerobic and anaerobic fitness, promote fat loss, and even improve blood pressure, insulin sensitivity, and glucose regulation in a relatively short time. This article will detail Tabata and similar forms of training and provide how-tos for implementing and designing effective Tabata-style workouts.
