No more looooooooong cardio sessions!
The focus of HIIT and TABATA style workouts is short, sweet and intense training sessions. It’s all about a period of work – at an intense level – followed by a period of rest.
Research has shown these types of workouts to be extremely effective for burning fat and calories, as outlined by The Daily Burn here. Another benefit of these types of workouts is the continued effect on your body even after you’re finished working out. FitFluential Ambassador Brad Gouthro explains here (video workout also included).
