Group X at St. Cloud State University recently unveiled a new group class called Tabata. But what is it?? Tabata is a type of training that focuses on high intensity interval training. Workouts last about 4 minutes but it’ll be the hardest 4 minutes you’ll experience. The structure is 20 seconds of intense training with 10 seconds of rest. There’s 8 rounds of this! You can do pretty much anything for the 20 second intervals but exercises that work the big muscle groups are great! Don’t be afraid to use small weights and kettle bells.
