Welcome to the TABATEO Experiment!

The tabata is easy in theory: 20 seconds of work, followed by 10 seconds of rest, then repeat. The very short rest period doesn't allow the body to fully recover from the previous set - and that's part of the reason why Tabata leads to significant aerobic and anaerobic gains. 

But here's the catch: You have to push yourself - really push yourself! You can't just go through the motions, or you won't reap the strength and cardio benefits from tabata. When performed correctly, there's another benefit: the afterburn effect. This means you'll keep burning calories for hours after your quick workout has ended.

Gather your equipment (if you're using any), set up your tabata timer, and get to work!

We OFFICIALLY begin this TABATEO EXPERIMENT on Monday, Nov. 20! Meet us at Creation Fitness to join the TABATEO discussion! Here is the schedule! Scroll down for demos!

COMMENTS:

In this experiment you will do each of the exercises in order, in a row, to make one set. Complete 8 rounds of these sets. 

Set your tabata timer:

  • Prepare - 10 seconds
  • Work - 20 seconds
  • Rest - 10 seconds
  • Cycles - 4
  • Tabatas - 8


The tabatas above are designed in such a way as to get two focused leg days in per week. If you modify the weekly schedule, be sure that you do not do two leg tabatas back to back. 

There is one day of yoga per week in this experiment. You're on your own for this, but if you've never done yoga before, or you want a recommendation, we will be using Adriene's 30 Day Yoga Revolution

Keep in mind we will only be doing 4 of the days of this program. Given this, if you are a true beginner, it might be a good idea to start off on Day 1. If you're comfortable with yoga, you may want to choose any of the days past Day 15.
