The Tabata method is a popular twist on High Intensity Interval Training that can be applied to both cardiovascular & weight training.

I particularly enjoy deploying this Muscle Buster against bodyweight exercises. It involves performing 20 seconds of exercise followed by 10 seconds of rest.

On your workout page, it’ll look something like this:

BENCH DIPS x20s/10s (x8 rounds) (TABATA METHOD)

This means we’d perform Bench Dips for 20 seconds then rest for 10 seconds. With x8 rounds scheduled, we’ll be working on these for 4 minutes and those 10 second rest breaks will quickly disappear!
