Forget Tabata Classes — These Workout Apps Let You HIIT at Home
Tabata burns calories and forces you to really work. It's a form of high-intensity interval training — short bursts of activity performed at close to your max capacity followed by even shorter rest periods — proven to shed fat and benefit cardiovascular health.
Tabata specifically follows intervals of 20 seconds on, working as hard as you can, followed by 10 seconds off for four minutes. Each four-minute round of, let's say, burpees, consists of eight sets. Sounds fun, right?
Whether you're a fan of this HIIT variety or are just getting started, we know booking a class isn't always the best option. Tabata apps make it easy to get that interval training done in the comfort of your home without breaking the bank. From timers that guide you through each round to instructor-led videos, here are some Tabata apps you'll want to download ASAP for that quick and effective sweat session. Oh, and almost all of them are free.
