Product description

The Tabata Timer is a device that will help you maintain the proper interval during your Tabata workout. A Tabata workout is an interval training cycle that consists of a period of sustained, intense activity followed by a short period of rest. This cycle continues over a number of iterations to form an entire Tabata workout.

The unique thing about the Tabata workout is that it is very short, with most intervals measured in seconds rather than minutes or hours. The standard Tabata workout consists of eight cycles composed of a 20-second intense workout followed by a 10-second rest period. If your workout happened to be running, you would run in an all-out sprint for 20 seconds. When your time was up, you would rest for 10 seconds. You would repeat this cycle eight times. It may sound easy, but you'll be surprised at just how difficult it is. Some studies suggest that a Tabata workout may be more beneficial than the standard cardio workout.

Be sure to consult with a physician before engaging in any exercise program, especially Tabata.

The difficulty with a Tabata workout is properly timing the exercise and rest intervals. This is where the Tabata Timer comes in. All of its timing components are configurable to meet your workout requirements. The Tabata Timer gives you visual cues on the screen and sound cues that will overlay any music that you have playing to alert you to the various stages of your workout.

Keep in mind that the Tabata Timer is not a general purpose timer. It is specifically designed for and dedicated to Tabata workouts.
