The Best Cardio Workout For People Who Hate Cardio

April 29, 2015 1 min read

All of you cardio haters, time to celebrate! According to an Auburn University study, the 4-minute calorie-torching wonder known as the Tabata protocol lives up to the hype! Study participants performed eight 20-second rounds of jump squats separated by only 10 seconds of rest. Each round was done with participants working as hard as possible from start to finish. They burned an average of 13.4 calories a minute during the workout and they, get this, doubled their metabolic rate for at least 30 mintues AFTER the workout. -hE3f0FOpa7vs98uiqT1PrJGyFQEtCUcarJkfy8h--8 "You would have to do five times the amount of moderate-intensity exercise—like power walking or light jogging—to burn the same amount of calories as you did in just 4 minutes," says study author Michele Olson, Ph.D., FACSM. “Even more if you want to achieve the after-burn benefits, too.” Your body requires energy to recover post workout so the higher the intensity of your exercise session, the longer your metabolism stays elevated after. In this case, the participants worked up to 95 percent of their maximum capacity (meaning as hard as they could go) so it took a long time for their bodies to return to normal even though they were resting. All sounds pretty great to me. Have you added Tabata to your routine? Tell us the benefits you've seen.

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.
