Korean singer-actor Rain loses 10kg in 3 months with Tabata
The 37-year-old now weighs the same as his 20-year-old self. And there is a clip of his circuit you can follow.
Not everyone is spending their extra time at home eating away their boredom.
Instead of packing on extra pounds, Korean singer-actor Rain successfully shook off a whopping 10kg. The Ninja Assassin actor shared a photo of himself looking very chiselled in a post on Instagram yesterday (Apr 17).
In the caption, he wrote, “It took me 3 months but I am finally at my debut weight.”
The 37-year-old revealed that he now weighs the same as his 20-year-old self. How did he do it? With some help from the popular Tababta training programme. The high-intensity interval training (HIIT) consists of eight rounds of ultra-high intensity exercises in a specific 20-seconds-on, 10-seconds-off intervals.
Sporting experts say that it may only take four minutes to complete a Tabata circuit but these four minutes may push your body to its absolute limit. The circuit burns a lot of calories and offers a full-body workout that is said to improve athletic performance and glucose metabolism, making it a good catalyst for fat burning.
The components of a Tabata circuit can vary according to an individual’s preference. Here’s the breakdown of Rain’s preferred workout:
. Jumping jacks
. Jump squats
. Push up
. Dumbbell single arm curls
. Full burpees
. Mountain climber
. Lying body weight superman
. Overhead weighted sit-up
