Best design. "Quick download" (7sec). DR. IZUMI TABATA The Tabata training method and its many variations are "unofficial" adaptations of the training protocol used by Dr Izumi Tabata in a research study published in 1996. In this landmark study, Dr Tabata showed that short bursts of high intensity training had superior aerobic and anaerobic training effects compared to longer moderate intensity training. What people say about Tabata+: This app is perfect for tabata. No extra crap getting in the way of your workout. Tap it and go. The simple interface let's you focus on digging deep and getting the last set done. This is a great way to exercise with this preset timer that records a history of my workouts and that does keep me motivated. I've heard about this workout technique and starting doing it slowly since I found this app today. This app is useful. I do 4 minutes training each time. I do high intensity for 20 seconds followed by 10 seconds of rest.
