In my humble opinion, the only thing better than becoming a healthier person and exercising is being efficient in doing so. I wanted to come up with a workout that’s extremely effective and can be completed in twenty minutes (if you want it to be). It’s the holiday season, so everyone is either busy complaining about how busy they are or they’re baking something. No one has ever drown in sweat, but feel free to throw on a life vest if you’re not feeling buoyant.


Tabata is high intensity type of interval workout that was inspired by Dr. Izumi Tabata. He is a Japanese researcher who used this protocol in his study on athletes in 1996 (used to see if it would improve the performance of skaters).
