This application is a timer meant to be used during your workouts using Tabata method.
Tabata is a version of HIIT (High-intensity interval training) created on 1996 by the Professor Izumi Tabata (田畑 泉).
The Tabata method consists of an exercise performing a sequence of steps between 4 minutes or a little more. We recommend 4 minutes.
Here is how it works:
You pick an exercise of your choice and GO on an ultra-intense exercise for 20 seconds followed by a 10 seconds REST (slowing down the intensity), repeated continuously for 4 minutes (8 cycles).
Our application goes beyond that and comes with the default set of:
1. PREPARE: 4 minutes (preparation time before the sequence starts, so you start your exercise in a regular intensity)
2. GO: 20 seconds (full force step, it will repeat 8 times)
3. REST: 10 seconds (a step to make it in a slow/regular rate, it will repeat 8 times)
4. COOL DOWN: 4 minutes (Do in the same rate you did in the preparation, or slower, just cool down :) )
On the "GO" step, do your best, but please remember to respect your limits!
All these numbers are configurable, including the amount of steps. The workout of 12 minutes is the most popular approach when using Tabata method. Good luck and don't forget to check up with your doctor or cardiologist before starting any kind of exercise.
