Workouts

tabata-workouts-pictureThe original workout was based around using a stationary bike but there are many alternative forms of cardio that can be used.

There are two types of Tabata workouts – ones using weights and ones without weights, please bear in mind that the weight bearing workouts are different to the original Tabata method (I am trying to find a reference for this!)
