Let’s face it, by the end of the day after work, school, or carpool; time set aside for exercise or a good workout at the gym is minimal at best. Tabata Interval Training could be your answer for a fat blasting workout in a short period of time.
Tabata Interval Training seems like a new kid on the block but timed workouts have been around for years. Sprinting and quick exercises separated by periods of rest are typical in athletics like track or football to increase cardiovascular recovery time. It also shocks the body to react like in CrossFit or Circuit training.
How does a JumpSport Fitness Trampoline fit into tabata interval training?
Tabata Interval Training is perfect for a fitness trampoline workout. Rebounding boosts metabolism and raises the heart rate quickly just like Tabata making an optimal workout in a short period of time. Doing high intensity quick intervals burns a lot of calories both during the workout as well as hours after. The benefit of adding the JumpSport Fitness Trampoline is that you are able to gain the benefits of rebounding along with a lower impact on the joints. For example, running in place at a high intensity on a Fitness Trampoline is much more comfortable than on pavement.
