TABATA is a form of HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) used by fitness programs ranging from elementary PE to professional athletes. Each exercise in a given Tabata workout lasts only four minutes, but it’s likely to be a pretty sweaty four minutes if you’re doing it right. The structure of the program is as follows:
Work out hard for 20 seconds…
Rest for 10 seconds…
Complete 8 rounds.
This is a very simple fitness activity we sometimes use to warm up the students in our elementary PE class.
Push yourself as hard as you can while the screen is green, and rest for 10 secondswhile the screen is red. This is one set. You’ll complete eight sets of exercises.

Of these individuals, around 3% have “Photosensitive Epilepsy”. This means that roughly 3 in 10,000 students should not watch the video to avoid these possible triggers. Know your students! If one of them has Photosensitive Epilepsy, be careful with what you let them watch 👌
