Some wanted to learn and hone a new skill, while others set their minds (and body) to a new goal of living a fitter and healthier lifestyle. But as with many aspects of life, the start of 2020 has caused many to hit the brakes with their routines.

Although there’s always a common misconception between the two, Tabata and HIIT workouts are both different in their own ways. Unlike HIIT, Tabata workouts are a form of HIIT that only takes four minutes of the same exercise whereas the latter is focused on incorporating a variety of exercises that include short bursts of powerful movement with short rest periods in between.
Basically, Tabata takes up less of your time but is more intense than your usual HIIT workout which is usually more spread out. Nevertheless, both exercises are perfect for those who are looking for a quick sweat to fit into their busy schedule.

For the unacquainted, Barre is an exercise inspired by a blend of other elements that include ballet, dance, pilates, strength as well as yoga. This hybrid workout usually involves plies and static stretches, alongside high reps of small range movements that work to improve your core strength while enhancing flexibility.
Though it may seem intimidating at first, Barre is actually a beginner-friendly exercise that you can start out with at home. These low-impact exercises require minimal equipment that can be done in your living room or even your bedroom (if space permits, that is), and it also helps tone your muscles and improves your posture.
