Need to workout but just don't have the time? Try this Tabata workout

 

You've probably heard a lot about Tabata: It's a system that promises big results in a little amount of time aka perfect for when you're slammed with a new school year.

 
Of course, the big question is does Tabata really work? Yes! It works because you're getting your heart rate up fast then taking a break, increasing your aerobic and anaerobic endurance. Fitness gurus don't suggest this be your entire cardio for the week but it's great if you're crammed for the time bit still want to work out.
