This 20-Minute Tabata Workout Beats an Hour on the Treadmill

You should be aware that this a 20-minute workout could give you better results than 60 minutes on the treadmill! We are speaking here about Tabata. The Tabata as a form of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) has been proven to torch serious calories.

How to do: Each round lasts four minutes and requires 20 seconds less intensity, followed by 10 seconds of rest. It should be repeated in eight times, and no more. Perform all moves and repeat the circuit four times.

That is about 100 percent max intensity for every burpee, mountain climber and tuck jump. Due to these inspired intervals, you will boost your metabolism and get you, fitter, faster.
