Hot To Squat: This Will Only Hurt for a Minute (or Four)

Another article which emphasizes the benefit of Tabata training and HIIT. However I'm not convinced that doing push ups is enough to reach the expected 170% of VO2max.. What do you think?

Read the full article here:


"Tabata trains the body both aerobically and anaerobically. Aerobic simply means “with oxygen”. An example of this would be cycling or jumping rope. Aerobic exercise is known to strengthen and condition your cardiopulmonary systems (heart and lungs), improve circulation, and burn fat. Anaerobic exercise, or “without oxygen”, would include powerful movements such as sprinting, strength training, and explosive plyometrics.
After Tabata, your excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC), or “afterburn” increases. Translation: burn calories in your sleep. Possibly for two to three days. Think of creating a fat-melting furnace inside of your body."
