Forget Pilates -- Anette Olsson does Tabata exercises

0

The usual method among celebs who've given birth to get back into shape ASAP is Pilates and yoga, with who knows how much coke and Adderall on the side. But ex-Nightwish singer Anette Olsson (she has dropped the "Olzon" stage name after leaving the band) is doing something much tougher: Tabata exercises.

Tabata method was developed by Dr. Izumi Tabata in 1996 for the Japanese speedskating Olympic team. After a lot of trial and error (those poor skaters), he perfected the right blend of bursts of high-intensity workout and time to rest: 20 seconds of ultra-intense exercise followed by 10 seconds of rest, repeated continuously for 4 minutes for a total of 8 cycles. If it doesn't kill you, it'll make you stronger because it's a seriously demanding HIIT method of exercise but it gets results.

As for her results, this is a 40-year-old woman who just had a baby 2 months ago. Judge for yourself.

There are plenty of Tabata apps for iOS and Android to help your workout. Has anyone on ONTD tried it? I did once. Just once.

Sorry for the posting screwup, mods. Also, no exercise/workout tags?
