It’s Tabata time!


Welcome to day 8 of the Back to Basics challenge, powered by support from Humana.

Have you tried a Tabata workout yet? It’s a form of high-intensity interval training, which research suggests burns 25 to 30% more calories than standard resistance training.

Tabata involves performing an exercise with as much exertion and speed as you can for 20 seconds, followed by 10 seconds of rest, repeated 8 times. The beauty of Tabata workouts is that you’re never pushing yourself for more than 20 seconds. And every 20 seconds, you get to rest!

Try this 20-minute Tabata workout.
