Tabata Bootcamp has become one of the nations’ most popular style of bootcamp class. For years, we’ve been focusing on calories burned during exercise, but new research reveals that we should focus on what happens AFTER exercise is over. Tabata Bootcamp workouts are short in duration and designed to boost post exercise caloric burn so your metabolism keeps burning more calories long after the exercise is over.
How does Tabata Bootcamp actually works? This program last 8 weeks and it’s based on High Intensity Interval Training or HIIT, using the 20-10 Microburst Training Protocol. Group members receive an easy and individually formatted program from a certified Tabata Bootcamp™ trainer located in your area, and participate in weekly workouts that will result in true, successful weight loss and muscle gain. These exercises are combined with metabolic tracking, and 24/7 web support that help deliver amazing body transformation results.
The members meet in small groups with their trainer 2-4 times a week for comprehensive total body workouts that focus on lower body, upper body, and core providing both cardio and strength. Within each 30 minute workout, participants experience short intervals based on Tabata Bootcamp’s training that delivers a calorie drenching workout and post metabolic boost. The motto here is “Quality, not quantity”, in other words, the effect of a workout should not be based on the amount of time devoted to exercising, but rather what the exercise does for your body after the workout is over. Done the Tabata Bootcamp™ way, you not only burn calories during the exercise, but your body keeps burning extra calories for the next 24 to 48 hours. Tabata Bootcamp™ training is a unique and revolutionary approach to successfully lose weight and build muscle in minimal time.
What Are the 20-10 Microbursts in Tabata Bootcamp? An interval consists of performing specifically chosen exercises at an ultra-high intensity for 20 seconds, followed by 10 seconds of rest. The beauty behind these short microbursts is that 20 seconds at high intensity is doable and the 10 second rest allows for brief recovery before moving on to the next exercise interval. These 20-10 microburst intervals are stacked in the 30 minute group workouts in specific sequences of different exercise movements that target every part of your body. The 6 minute workouts also stack 20-10 intervals using just a few select exercise movements that deliver a short yet high metabolic boosting workout.
This short duration, but high intensity interval training (HIIT) creates a prolonged after burn, or EPOC (excess post oxygen consumption). This type of training causes the body to take longer to return to its state of rest, so it continues to burn calories at a higher rate long after the workout session has completed. Put simply, a 4-minute Tabata Bootcamp workout can reap the same benefits as a longer but steady workout, like running for a half hour. The results with microburst workouts are backed by research.
