A new exercise program claims to help your body burn fat for days. The Tabata workout only lasts 12 minutes, but the benefits keep working for hours, even days later. The program consists of a 5 minute warm up, 20 seconds of high intensity exercise followed by 40 seconds of mild exercise. Repeat this 5 times and follow with a cool down. This program can be used with any form of exercise you choose. For example let’s use a treadmill. Walk at a normal pace for your 5 minute warm up, increase your speed to a jog (or run if you are in better shape) for 20 seconds, return to walking for 40 seconds. Do this 5 times in a row and cool down afterwards. That’s it ! Scientists claim the program tricks your body into burning fat longer. Tabata appears to be great for fat burning and great for your heart. Why not make your workout work for you longer.
