Expect Results Fitness shows how to do 'Tabata Training'


Jeff Vaughn, owner and trainer at Expect Results Fitness in Jacksonville was on Good Afternoon Arkansas showing us how to do Tabata Training.

Vaughn says minimizing workout time, improving physical conditioning and monitoring carb intake are the keys to dropping fat and keeping it off long term.

Tabata Training & High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) are two training techniques that can be used to shorten workout times and get you in the best shape of your life.

Tabata Training is a style of training where you perform an exercise as hard as possible for 20 seconds and rest for 10 seconds repeating the work/rest cycle 8 times. You can do this as a circuit using 4-5 different exercises to complete a workout. Rest 1 -2 minutes between exercises.

HIIT is a training style where you perform sprints or other exercises for 30-60 seconds and then recover for 15-30 seconds. Repeat the work/rest cycle 8-10 times. You can do this with 1 exercise or several depending on the conditioning of the person. Rest 1-3 minutes between exercises.
