Tabata Tuesday (TT) is an event that goes on at the FIERCE office where members and even some staff get together to work out.
Izumi Tabata was a researcher that invented the workout theory. He believed that instead of doing normal exercises (ex. running) for long periods of time, it’s better to push our bodies to the max for short periods of time and take little breaks in between. For example: Do as many jumping jacks as you can in one min and take a 10 second break and do that over again for 4 minutes.
The goal is to push your body and see how much you can do. It is like a competition with yourself. In each session, we keep track of our repetitions and try to beat our last round each time.
