Workout Prep

First up, what the heck does “tabata” mean?

Good question.

A “tabata” is a high intensity workout protocol that requires a 20/10 split between 20 seconds of all-out exercise alternated with 10 seconds of rest. This is then repeated 8 times for a total of 4 minutes of effort.

Basically, you go crazy jumping rope for 20 seconds and rest for 10 seconds. You repeat that set 8 times for 1 circuit, rest for 1 minute, then repeat the whole circuit 3-4 times.
