Tabata Intervals – 8 Week Workout Progression

A few weeks ago, I did a post covering a 12-week interval training progression using the Tabata Protocol.


In that post, I discussed exactly what Tabata Intervals are, why Tabata Workouts benefit athletes of all levels and off course, how to gradually progress over a 12-week period to prevent overtraining.


In this post, I’m going to cover a slightly shorter, 8 week Tabata Workout progression.


If you are a fitter athlete with a solid conditioning base.  This 8-week progression is just what the doctor ordered to help you maximize the results of your Tabata training efforts.
