All the gear, no idea. If you read my last post, you will know that World of Sports have kindly kitted me out in all the right gear for getting fit. No longer wearing trainers from my school days, I feel suitably inspired to essentially eat less, move more.
I have chosen tomorrow, Thursday, as the day to start this all off (which means I only have to do it once or twice, then it’s the weekend).
Always keen on a shortcut, I have decided to throw myself in at the deep end with something called Tabata (pronounced ‘tabarta’). It’s a four minute workout that can burn MORE fat than one an hour long. My regular readers will probably already know, before I type another word, that I love the sound of this.
It does all seem highly unlikely, but there IS a science to it all. Tabata is essentially High Intensity Interval Training, (HIIT) the brainchild of a Japanese professor who used to it train Olympians.
Well, I am lazy and I am listening.
The plan is this: you go full out for 20 seconds (in something cardio, like running) take a ten second rest, then begin the cycle four times over. That’s it. You’re done.
How hard can it be?
You should do your HIITS, as they are called, about two or three times a week and can expect drastic toning results.
I will report back tomorrow, provided I haven’t had a heart attack.
