Tabata Training is a great way to spice up your workouts, burn more calories and get more out of your exercise time. Because the intervals are so short, you really feel them, but the workout flies by. 
**If you feel like you’re getting too breathless, extend your recovery times or take extra breaks as needed. Be sure to listen to your body when doing any type of high intensity exercise. If you feel any pain or discomfort, take a break, try different exercises or back off for the day.**
