Korean singer-actor Rain loses 22lbs in 3 months with Tabata

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
