Tabata was created in the 1990s and is named after its inventor, Dr. Izumi Tabata. The Tabata method is made up of 20 seconds of intense exercise followed by 10 seconds of rest, repeated for a total of four minutes. This method burns a lot of calories during your workout but can also cause your body to continue to burn calories post-exercise.
