Interval Training offers increased fat loss with shorter workouts

This article emphasizes once again the numerous advantages of HIT compared to classic cardio exercices, and of course it mentions the Tabata training.

Regardless of the finer details, the general concept of Interval Training has been proven to be more efficient at overall fitness and endurance of both professional athletes and the general public. A study was conducted by J. L. Talanian et al, Dept. of Human Health and Nutritional Sciences, University of Guelph in Canada, on women between 22 and 65 years old. It was shown that two weeks of High Intensity Interval Training increased fat oxidation by 36 percent and these results did not depend on the fitness level of the subjects before starting the study.
