Does Tabata Training Develop Strength?

  What is Tabata?

Tabata is an exercise protocol designed by Japanese exercise researcher Dr. Izumi Tabata at the National institute of Fitness and Sports in Tokyo, Japan.

The original study that Tabata training is based on, showed that short, sharp, intense periods of exercise, interspersed with very short rest periods drastically increased participants’ aerobic and anaerobic work capacity – in other words, they got fitter and stronger.

From the study, the exercise protocol that we now recognize as Tabata was developed.  A Tabata workout comprises eight rounds of very high intensity exercise, each lasting 20 seconds, with 10 seconds of rest between rounds. In total, one Tabata lasts three minutes and 50 seconds.

Can Tabata Build Strength?

As so often is the case with these kinds of questions, the answer is “It Depends”. In this case, whether or not tabata can develop strength depends on what definition of strength you look at.

You have three types of strength.

Maximum strength is all about the absolute maximum weight you can lift once. Imagine a powerlifter, grinding out a heavy squat or deadlift for his single repetition maximum – this is maximum strength.

Elastic, or speed strength refers to moving a weight at speed. This applies to Olympic weightlifters, and other power athletes such as shot putters or discus throwers – they have to move heavy objects, but they need to move them quickly.

Finally, strength endurance is the ability to exert force many times over, such as performing as many pushups as you can, or lifting fifty percent of your one rep maximum on the bench press.

Due to the high repetitions required for a tabata training session, it won’t do much for improving your maximum strength. The weights you use are too light to effectively hit the muscle fibers needed for heavy lifting, and you’ll do far too many reps to stimulate the nervous system for strength gains.

Tabata may have some carryover to elastic strength, especially for beginners, although it does depend on your choice of exercises. If you perform more “explosive” movements in your tabatas, such as cleans, jump squats, or push presses, then there will be some carryover to improving your elastic strength.

Tabata is most beneficial though, for strength endurance. Considering that during a full eight rounds of tabata, you’ll probably perform anywhere between 60 and 200 reps, again depending on exercises, your strength endurance will be severely tested.

How do I Ensure Strength Progressions?

Tabata is very similar to density training, in that you have an exact timescale in which you work in. Quite simply, to ensure progress, you have to make sure that in every workout, you do more work in the same amount of time.

Let’s take squats as an example.

In your first workout, you might choose to do just bodyweight squats, and get 120 reps. In your next workout, you can either stick with bodyweight, and aim to do more reps, or add some weight – either with a light dumbbell or kettlebell, or by wearing a weight vest, and try to match your reps from last time. Either way, you’re progressing, and boosting your strength endurance.

Sample Tabata Workout

Try this workout for a full body, strength-building, session. Do one tabata (eight rounds), on each exercise –

–          Squats – if you’re a beginner, just use your bodyweight or a light dumbbell/kettlebell. More experienced trainers may like to experiment with barbell squats, or wear a heavy weighted vest.

-          Push Presses – Use either dumbbells or a barbell.

–          Inverted Rows – Similar to chin ups, but slightly easier. Set a bar at chest height in a  power rack, sit on the floor, grab the bar with both hands, and pull yourself up.

–          Crunches – Hold a weight plate to make them harder if you need to.

If you plan to use Tabata or any other interval type training, then you’re going to need some intense music to help you get through the workout. For the perfect soundtrack to your interval workout, check out Interval MP3. Click here to learn more.

Bodyweight Exercises for Chest

For many men, the chest is the most difficult muscle group to build up, especially if you have no weights. But you really can build up a great chest, if you just understand one fact: pushups are HARD!

When I sat down to write this article, I was immediately reminded of my friend Jag, who told me, “Man, Parth. Pushups are hard.” He then went on to give me a run down of what his routine looks like:

Since he can’t do any pullups, he sticks to mostly pushups. His workout consists of just running and pushups. That’s all. That’s how he dropped over 30 pounds without changing his diet.

I’ve heard of many individuals who’ve achieved similar results. When I first met my friend Stephen, he had already dropped 50lbs. When I asked him how, he said “Pushups.”

Even if you have no knowledge of exercise science…you can lose weight. In fact, you’re probably better off not knowing what you’re doing because then your brain won’t be clogged up with all the mis-information out there.

If you want to build up a solid chest, or if you want to lose weight, all you need to do is get down and do some solid pushups. Once regular pushups become easy, then you can place your feet up on an object behind you and perform decline pushups.

All my friend does is 100 pushups, of any variation. His goal is to do 100 pushups per day, no matter how many sets it takes. i saw him recently, and his arms are pretty ripped.

Even though I strongly feel that he needs to add in pullups and squats into his routine, he’s still doing a great job with someone who’s a full time student, works full time, and has a dog to look after.

If you’re busy and you think you can’t build a solid body at home, then you need to get your head examined. Stop making excuses. You don’t need any special equipment. All you need is a solid training guide, and the will to do a lot of pushups.

I f my friend Jag, who literally knows nothing about exercise (you should hear some of the questions he’s asked me regarding working out), then anyone can achieve their dreams. If you’ve been on my mailing list for a WEEK, you have more knowledge that Jag does.
If you need a little bit of extra motivation, then I recommend checking out one of the best Pushups and Pullup guides I’ve come across. It’s by Shawna Kaminski and you can check it out here ===> ChallengeWorkouts.com

Best Weight Loss Advice…Ever?

The following is a Guest Post by Kevin DiDonato:

If you are struggling with weight loss, then you MUST read this.

It contains information which may be VITAL to your health.

As an avid exerciser and dieter, you may be making KEY mistakes which may lead to INCREASED weight gain and “SICK” FAT CELLS.

And this weight gain may be slowly KILLING you – without you even knowing it.

Some may be SILENT killers, while others you may have the opportunity to CONTROL.

Regardless, taking IMMEDIATE steps TODAY may slow your weight gain, and possibly REDUCE it.

The end results may be a leaner, firmer, stronger, and younger you for years to come!

Most people laugh when I tell them these five things lead to weight gain, but then are amazed at the power they may have on their WEIGHT LOSS RESULTS.

#1 Your Stress Is literally KILLING You

Everyday you may feel stress.

And this stress may actually be KILLING you.

Stress causes your body to be put on alert, which may lead you to increase your energy intake.

Your body removes sugar from your blood for IMMEDIATE energy, which may leave you hungry.

And calorie-rich, nutrient-dense snacks are what MOST people go for when they are stressed.

And this can spell “bad news” for your WEIGHT.

Too many high-calorie, nutrient-dense snacks, may cause you to store those calories as fat.

With your life being high paced and stressful, with everyone working to deadlines, your STRESS levels may be through the roof.

And this stress may cause the exact opposite of what you want to happen: you may pack on the pounds!

So take a breather and relax, your waist and skinny jeans will appreciate it LATER.

#2  Is Sugar As Deadly As Illegal Drugs?

Okay, so maybe not as bad as most illegal drugs, but it may be close.

Sugar may increase neurotransmitters and opioids in your brain, which may provide comfort and enjoyment.

Dopamine (the neurotransmitter), may increase when you ingest sugar

Sugar may affect more than just your WAIST

As this hormone increases, your dopamine receptor sites may actually DECREASE.

This may increase your opiate receptors.

And since sugar may release both, dopamine and opioids, this may increase the addictive properties of sugar.

#3 It All Started BEFORE You Were Born…

You all know that exposure to hazardous chemicals WHILE pregnant may cause damage to the unborn child.

Toxins like chemicals, smoking, and drinking may lead to damage to your unborn child – especially the brain.

Now there is emerging research that says that exposure to junk food DURING pregnancy may be BAD.

That junk food may alter your developing child’s brain.

When your unborn child is exposed to junk food, it may
cause a predisposition to EATING junk food

Researchers have discovered that exposure to high-fat, high-sugar diets may lead to increased risk of obesity later on in life.

They determined that, during pregnancy, junk food exposure may lead to changes in the central reward system of your brain.

This may encourage overconsumption of HIGH-FAT and HIGH-SUGAR foods in YOUR child.

So if you are pregnant, limit your intake of high-sugar and high-fat foods.

It may be unforgiving to your hips, but also to your child’s developing brain.

#4 Can Being Overweight Cause You To Get FATTER?

Being overweight can ACTUALLY make you FATTER.

You may think that this is a no-brainer!

Give me a minute to explain…

Your fat cells release hormones which control how much you eat, and when you should stop eating.

When you are overweight, the signal to stop eating gets WEAKER.

The weaker signal may cause you to OVEREAT leading
to increased WEIGHT GAIN

This leads to increased energy consumption.

And it may get worse from there!

Increased weight may cause your cells to become resistant to many different hormones, which may disrupt your fat cells from doing their job.

That job is: regulation of your ENERGY INTAKE!

So the more overweight you become, the more your fat cells are becoming “sick.”

And this sickness may lead you down a dangerous path.

The more your fat cells become inflamed, may result in resistance to key hormones.

And this may wreak havoc on your metabolism.

Not only may it slow down your metabolism, but your body may have no IDEA if it is full or not.

This may lead to increase WEIGHT GAIN.

#5  Are There Any Anti-Fat Foods Out There?

Your cells may become inflamed with increased FAT levels.

But that is not the only reason why!

Damage caused by free radicals may also be a reason behind your WEIGHT GAIN.

And you might be thinking: is there anything I can do?

Of course there is!

Fruits and vegetables are loaded with powerful nutrients called antioxidants.

And these antioxidants may be the key to reducing inflammation.

Antioxidants may make your FAT cells regain normal hormone signaling again.

Antioxidants are powerful fighters against free radical damage.

Antioxidants suck up free radicals and DESTROY them

Antioxidants may destroy free radicals, which means they are no longer searching out STABLE molecules to steal electrons from.

This may REDUCE inflammation, which is powerful news for your metabolism.

Reducing inflammation may help your FAT cells to become “healthy” again.

Take Immediate ACTION Now

Being blessed with poor genes and bad dietary guidance, may not mean you are destined to spend your days overweight and TIRED.

Increasing fruit and vegetable intake and limiting your sugar intake, may help you LOSE WEIGHT and keep it off.

Altering your dietary intake may reduce inflammation, which may be causing your increasing waist line.

YOU may have the chance to reduce your INFLAMMATION by including plenty of fiber, INFLAMMATION fighting antioxidants, and limiting your sugar intake.

Your weight IS in YOUR control.

Start CHANGING your life today, and boost your METABOLISM one step at a time!

Bodyweight Training: How To Burn Fat And Build Muscle Without A Gym

Bodyweight training is one of the best ways to burn fat and build muscle.  Unfortunately, most people believe (or are led to believe) they need a room full of equipment or an expensive gym membership in order to improve their physique.  They completely overlook the fat burning and muscle building potential of bodyweight exercise.  I hope this article opens your eyes to the possibilities of using the gym you were born with!

 

Heads up: at the end of the article I’m going to share with you one exercise that simultaneously builds muscle and burns fat.

 

It’s happened to all of us at one point or another (even me).  We look in the mirror one day and we notice we are softer and fatter.  While we weren’t paying attention, our muscle tone and strength has decreased, and our waist size has increased.  This is when most of say, “It’s time to hit the gym.”

 

But hold on a minute.  I agree, it is time to do something about your physique.  But joining a gym does not have to be the answer.  As a matter of fact, you can start burning fat and building muscle today to improve your physique.

 

Let me show you how bodyweight training can improve your physique in as little 15 minutes a day…

 

Instead of joining a gym, that you may or may not end up going to, start by adding a bodyweight training program to your daily schedule.  Come on, it is easy to find 15 minutes to exercise.  And 15 minutes is all you need to do to start feeling and looking better.  Obviously, I’d like to see you exercise even more, but let’s keep it simple at 15 minutes for now.

 

So, you wake up in the morning and do 15 minutes of bodyweight calisthenics.  By the way, you’ll find this more invigorating than swilling down cups of coffee.  Do this every day.  Yes, every day, and you will see great results.

 

Now, I can hear some of you saying, “I thought you were only supposed to exercise every other day, or 3 times a week!”

 

This is true, if you are on a high volume bodybuilding program!  Bodybuilders need that extra day to recover from the huge amount of training they perform.  But you are only doing 15 minutes of bodyweight exercise.  This leaves you 1,440 minutes to recover between bodyweight training sessions.  This is more than enough.

 

Now, if you do this every day for a week, you do 1 hour and 45 minutes of exercise.  Do you think 1 hour and 45 minutes will start to tighten your muscles and burn off extra fat?  You bet it does!

 

Now, for the skeptics that think bodyweight training is too “easy”, or that you can’t get a great muscle building, fat burning workout in 15 minutes, I’m going to share an exercise with you.  (Remember, I promised to do this at the beginning of the article.)

 

This exercise is called the Burpee – Chin Up Combo.

 

Here is how you do it…

 

Stand under a chin up bar with your feet shoulders width apart and arms at your sides.  Bend your knees and squat down, placing your hands on the floor in front of you.  Kick your feet back so you are in the up position of the push up.  Perform a push up.  Jump your feet forward under your body… then explode up and grab the bar with palms facing you.  Perform a chin up.  Drop down and repeat.

 

Do this for a few minutes and your whole body will feel it, from your muscles to your heart and lungs, and you burn a lot of fat.  Try to do as many as you can for a full 15 minutes, and I guarantee you’ll have a new appreciation for bodyweight exercise.

 

I hope this article has opened you eyes to the fantastic possibilities of bodyweight training.  If you need to strengthen and tone your muscles and burn fat, start changing your physique today with your own bodyweight.  Make a consistent effort every day and you’ll soon meet your goals.

 

Coach Eddie Lomax, author of Workout Without Weights uses bodyweight calisthenics to improve fitness, burn fat and build an attractive physique.  No equipment necessary, so you can start today!

Bodyweight Mass Routine

If you think of training to build muscle, then you’ll probably get a mental image of hulk-like bodybuilders crowded around hoards of barbells, dumbbells, and resistance machines. Many people are under the impression that to build muscle, you need lots of fancy equipment, and tonnes of weights, but this isn’t the case at all. It’s possible to build muscle mass using one workout tool that is often extremely underrated – your own bodyweight.

The Routine

Squats – As many reps as you can in 45 seconds

Alternate Lunges – 15 repetitions per leg

Push Ups – 15 repetitions

Chin-Ups – 10 repetitions

Dips – 10 repetitions

Reverse Crunches – 15 repetitions

The squats, lunges, pushups and reverse crunches all require no equipment. For the chin-ups and dips, you’ll either need chin-up and dip bars, a set of gymnastic rings or a suspension trainer. Do this workout in a circuit style, with no rest in between exercises, and two minute rests between rounds. Repeat it four times.

Frequency

To start with, you’ll see results doing this routine just three times per week. Try to do your workouts on alternate days if possible, so that your muscles get a chance to rest between sessions.

Progressions

This workout will only be challenging to you for so long. After a while, you’ll begin to find it easier, and won’t get as many benefits from it. When this happens, it’s vital that you step it up a gear, to keep reaping the rewards of bodyweight training.

The simplest way to make it harder is to increase the number of rounds you do, and decrease your rest times. So instead of four rounds with two minute rests in between each, try six rounds with just a minute between each. You can also add extra repetitions. Aim to build up to doing 90 seconds of squats, 25 lunges per side, 25 pushups, 15 chin-ups, 15 dips and 25 reverse crunches.

Another way to increase the intensity is to change exercises, or add in extra ones where you see fit. For example, you could try clap pushups, or pushups with your feet on a bench, or do jump lunges instead of regular ones. This is only recommended for more advanced trainers though – beginners will be fine sticking to the exercises in the original circuit.

Considerations

The other aspects of building mass are your diet and rest. To put on muscle, you need to eat a small excess of calories. To begin with, just add 500 calories per day to your current diet. If after two weeks you haven’t gained any weight, keep adding 250 calories per day once a week, until you’re building muscle. Your diet should be composed of high protein, nutrient dense foods – things like meat, fish, eggs, dairy products, fruits, vegetables, wholegrains, nuts and seeds.

As for rest, the day off between each session will enable your muscles to fully recover, so provided you do this, get eight hours of good quality sleep every night, and try to minimise external stresses in your life, you can effectively build mass with bodyweight training.

High Energy Flux Is Best For Fat Loss

The following is a Guest Post by Coach Eddie Lomax:

Men and women normally think of reduced calorie eating or fat burning cardio when they want to shed ugly fat, they don’t think of Energy Flux.  After looking in the mirror and seeing the love handles bulging over their belt, they say things like, “I need to go on a diet” or “I need to get into shape”.  That is their first mistake when looking to eliminate ugly fat.

Dieting alone, or exercising alone is not the solution to losing ugly fat.  You must combine both to get the results you want.

Dr. John Berardi (of Precision Nutrition fame), uses a term called “Energy Flux”, or “G Flux” to explain the right combination of diet and exercise to eliminate fat and build an attractive body.

In simple terms…

Energy Flux is the balance between energy intake (the food you eat)
and energy cost (the calories you burn).

Let’s look at different Energy Flux examples to learn which one is best for fat loss and building a body you can be proud of…

Energy Flux Example 1: Eat Little – Exercise Little

Many people live on little food and little exercise.  Very little energy is going in and very little energy is being spent.  This results in a frail, skinny, weak appearance.

Energy Flux Example 2: Eat A Lot – Exercise A Little

Overeating and getting little exercise is by fat the most common example of energy flux.  There is a lot of energy going in, and very little energy being used.  The result of too much energy and too little expenditure leads to a surplus which the body stores as fat.  As you probably know all too well, excess fat is not what you want if you want a lean, muscular, athletic body.  (If it was, almost everyone I know would be the picture of prefect health, fitness and physique).

Energy Flux Example 3: Eat A Little – Exercise A Lot

Now we’re talking.  This is where most people think the their energy flux should be.  After all, if Example #2 is the worst example, than this “mirror image” should be the best, right?

Restricting calories through diet and using energy with exercise does mean there is more energy used than available.  This creates an energy deficit, which means the body must burn fat for fuel.  And this is great… at least in the beginning.

However, over time this is what happens:

1) Drastically reducing calories also reduces performance.
2) Your body does not have enough energy left over to build muscle or make other changes to improve performance or appearance.
3) Muscle is also sacrificed in the struggle to provide enough energy to perform the high volume of exercise.

So the real result of this type of Energy Flux over the long term is a body that literally cannibalizes itself to maintain an energy balance, leaving you looking weak, scrawny and tired.

So, what’s left?

Energy Flux Example #4: Eat A Lot – Exercise A Lot

If you eat plenty of healthy, nutritious food and use this energy to perform a high volume of effective exercise… what do you think happens?

Your body adapts to the higher level of activity by building muscle and making other physical changes, And the nutrients are available to make these changes.  The result: an athletically muscular, fit body with extremely low body fat.

So, a lot of good food coming in and a lot of exercise is the right energy balance if you want to burn fat AND expose a muscular, fit body.  (This is the goal right?)

So High Energy Flux is the way to go if you want to build a strong, athletic body with very low body fat!

If you want to lose fat, and have the result of the fat loss be a strong, lean, athletic body, than you must create HIGH Energy Flux.  You need a lot of (good) energy coming in, and a lot of (good) energy being expended.  Don’t just diet.  Don’t just exercise.  Combine a healthy diet and plenty of exercise for a high energy flux and get the fat loss results you want!

One of the best workouts you can use to crate a high energy flux is Extreme Dumbbell Workouts. Click here to learn more!

Best Workouts For Fat Loss: 3 Shortcuts To Success

The Following is a Guest Post by Coach Eddie Lomax:

There are three shortcuts you need to take when looking for the best workouts for fat loss.  After all, you do want to lose that ugly fat as fast as possible, right?

——————————

When the reality hits that you are carrying too much fat, you want to get rid of it fast.  You think, “How did I allow myself to get so fat?”  And you immediately start looking for the best workouts for fat loss.  Here are three shortcuts you can use to pick the right workout and finally realize your physique goals.

Shortcut 1: Decide On Workout Characteristics

You should first decide on the characteristics of your workout designed to burn fat.  Now, by this I don’t mean the “specifics” of the workout itself (that comes later).  I want you to decide where you will do the workout, when you will do it, how much time you have to exercise, what equipment you have at your disposal, etc.

The last thing you want to do is decide to start a fat loss workout program without knowing these factors.  Often, people start a program that is doomed from the start because it doesn’t fit their lifestyle, time restraints, equipment limitations, etc.  Then when the workout starts to go wrong (missed workouts, not doing the workout like instructed, not enough time to complete the workout), you are one step closer to giving up all together and never reaching your fat burning goals.

Shortcut 2: Decide On The Overall Duration Of The Workout Program

Let’s be honest.  It might take some of you a long time to reach your body composition goals.  It all depends on how much fat you have to lose when you start.  But the workout you choose with the goal of fat burning should be for a specific period of time.

There are other factors when choosing a workout, like fitness, performance, health, strength and muscle building concerns.  Fat loss should not be your main focus for an extended period of time.  Be honest, it is a lot easier to dedicate yourself to a 4 week fat burning workout program than one that lasts 2 years.

Shortcut 3: Use The Best Workouts For Fat Loss ALREADY Getting Great Results

This is the best shortcut there is.  Once you know the characteristics of the workout you want to perform and the duration you want to do it… look for a program that fits your needs and that ALREADY is proven to work.

You don’t want your hours working out to be an experiment, do you?  You want to KNOW that completing the workout as instructed gets results.  So, look for exercise programs from a fitness professional that is already working and that fits your needs.

Most people when looking for the best workout for fat loss are very motivated… in the beginning.  But without these shortcuts to success, most never complete the fat burning workouts long enough to see any real and lasting fitness, health and appearance results.  Use these shortcuts to find the best fat destroying workouts for you… and get started today with the Superior Dumbbell Workout.

Bodyweight Calisthenics: What You Don’t Know

The following is a Guest Post by Coach Eddie Lomax:

I love bodyweight calisthenics.  I think bodyweight exercises in general are the best place to start a physical training program ans should remain an integral part of any workout program.  The reason I like them so much is they get real RESULTS people can use to perform, look and feel better.

I love bodyweight calisthenics.  I think bodyweight exercises in general are the best place to start a physical training program ans should remain an integral part of any workout program.  The reason I like them so much is they get real RESULTS people can use to perform, look and feel better.

But inevitably I’m asked, “Can you really get great results with bodyweight exercises and calisthenics?”  It’s as if people still don’t believe something as obvious as bodyweight exercise can get great fat loss, muscle building and fitness improving results.  And frankly, with the fitness community saying you need to buy such-and-such machine or join a gym, I can hardly blame them for their doubts.

But here are some thinks you may or may not know about bodyweight calisthenics…

Here Are 6 Reasons I Love Bodyweight Workouts:

Bodyweight only workouts train your body in natural movement patterns.  Often the challenges of sport, work and life are overcome by your ability to move your own body.  And bodyweight calisthenics train your body to move better in the way it naturally moves.

Bodyweight calisthenics are a perfect starting place.  Apart from the bodybuilding community thinking exercise is about muscle groups, exercise is really about movement.  And there is no better way to start training your body to move better than using your own bodyweight as resistance before adding extra weight.

Any fitness level can benefit.  Regardless of whether you are a complete exercise beginner or elite athlete, there is a challenging bodyweight workout program right for you.

Bodyweight exercises can be done anywhere.  You don’t need expensive equipment or even to drive to the local gym.  All you need is the desire, and you can get a great workout that produces great results both inside or out.

Both strength and cardiorespiratory endurance can be trained with only bodyweight exercise and calisthenics.  Imagine doing 15 minutes straight of different exercise and repetitive calisthenics.  All the muscles in your body and your heart and lungs get involved!

Bodyweight workouts are great for burning fat.  You’re not happy with that spare tire around your middle.  You don’t need to go to the gym.  Just get busy using bodyweight exercises to work out at home.

Don’t let the simplicity of bodyweight calisthenics convince you they are ineffective.  If you want to improve fitness, perform better, lose fat and build an attractively muscular body, you have everything you need to get started right now.  Use you own body as your gym and start getting real results. If you’re ready to get started today, then I recommend trying Ultimate Gymless Workout. Click here to learn more!
