The Tabata interval was created for a 1996 study by Professor Izumi Tabata et al. initially involving Olympic speedskaters. The study used 20 seconds of ultra-intense exercise followed by 10 seconds of rest, repeated continuously for 4 minutes (8 cycles). Tabata participants increased both their aerobic and anaerobic capacity more than participants using only steady state training.
Today, we are tweaking the interval by doubling the work and rest ratios. Let us know which interval protocol you like best.
