So you say there is not enough time to workout? Allow me to introduce you to Tabata. She is a lean, mean workout machine. She doesn’t spend hours a in the gym or her day munching on carrot sticks. She cuts to the chase, gets the job done and wastes no time in her busy schedule to look and feel incredible.

No, Tabata is not a woman. She is a high intensity interval training protocol that effectively solves the excuse of time. That’s right. After you read this article you’ll no longer be able to convince me that there is not enough time to workout! Here is why.

Tabata involves completing an exercise or sequence of exercises at high intensity for 20 seconds followed by 10 seconds of rest. This is repeated 8 times for a total training time of 4 minutes per exercise. This is a hit it hard, hit it fast method that gets the heart pumping the chest pounding and lungs heaving and that equals results in 4 short minutes.

And you can include as many 4 minute sets as you like comprised of any myriad of combined movements to meet your goal, interest and utilize the available tools. They could be body weight, cardio or resistance moves or a combo of them all. The sky is a limit and the time is yours to gauge- from 4 minutes to an hour, it is all up to you.

But there is more to Tabata than her time saving benefits. This technique improves both aerobic and anaerobic capacity in already fit individuals. So, if you are already a gym rat of sorts, in shape, fit and strong, Tabata protocol will step up your athletic edge.

Tabata also produces the effect of high-intensity exercise thus burning fat long after the training itself! In other words, she is a fat burning powerhouse!

All in all, the “There is not enough time to workout!” excuse no longer works. Tabata resolves that with the 4 minute interval. No one can tell me they can’t find 4 minutes in their day. You may be thinking 4 minutes cannot possibly make a difference in your health and fitness but it can! Taking 4 minutes to do 8 sets of squats for example a few times throughout the day will make a profound impact on your wellbeing and fitness prowess from fat burning to aerobic capacity.

Here is a sample routine that you can accomplish today without any equipment, a trip to the gym and on a limited budget of time and thus removes the excuse that there is not enough time to workout.

Remember, 8 rounds of each performed in 20 second high intensity bursts with 10 seconds rest in between.

  • Pushups
  • Situps
  • Squats
  • Jumping Jacks

Not enough time to workout is an excuse no longer. There is time and there is the means to take care of your body each and every day of the week, anytime and anywhere. It is now simply up to you to make the choice to do it! And that leads me to ask you this? Will you do this for you? Will you take this simple step today and begin to transform your body and your life?
