After the warm-up, you can start: Imagine eg. B. the stopwatch on your smartphone or a special Tabata app, so you don’t lose sight of the time. After the first 20 seconds there is a 10 second pause. Thereafter, the load continues for 20 seconds. After 4 minutes the tabata is over. You should now take a short break. You can then either start another tabata or continue to cool down so your heart and circulation will calm down again.
