What is Tabata?

The name Tabata comes from the man who invented it - Dr. Izumi Tabata, a Japanese physician and researcher. He conducted a study to test an interval based training model of training vs long duration cardio.

Dr. Tabata took two groups and put them on an exercise program for six weeks. The control group did one hour of moderate-intensity exercise five times a week. The other group did 8 sets of 20 sec max effort sprints followed by 10 seconds rest. That adds up to 1,800 minutes of training for the control group versus 120 minutes of training for the Tabata group over the six-week period. The results speak for themselves. While both groups improved their aerobic capacity (as measure by VO2max), the Sprint Interval group improved their anaerobic sprint power by a whopping 28% while the moderate cardio group did not improve at all.
