If you’re not already in love with the efficient cardio training methods known as TABATA and HIIT, you’ve probably at least heard about them.
In short (no pun intended) they are workouts that are brief compared to spending an hour or more doing steady state cardio exercises. Steady-state being training sessions where your heart rate reaches your target for training and stays there for the duration of your workout.
HIIT (High Instensity Interval Training) and TABATA routines are different in that they encourage you to work at a higher, more intense level of exertion, but for a shorter amount of time. Those shorter bursts of work are followed by rest periods. This allows you to take your cardio training to the next level. Celebrity trainer Monica Nelson has written a great piece about this type of training and why she loves it for her clients: TABATA training 411 from Monica Nelson Fitness.
