Undersun Fitness’ Frequently Asked Questions

  • What does the name "TA2" stand for?

    TA2 stands for “Train Anywhere. Train Anytime”, and the TA2 HITT & TABATA program is no exception. Combined with Undersun Resistance Bands, this is a complete weight loss, and muscle toning program, that you can do wherever you are.

  • What makes TA2 different than other HIIT programs?

    Most HIIT & TABATA programs are great for weight loss and cardiovascular conditioning, but there usually is not a resistance component to help tone and build muscle.  Even if your goal is only to lose weight, having more lean muscle is the fastest and easiest way to burn more calories. The TA2 program incorporates the use of resistance bands so that every major muscle group is targeted, for a total-body workout.

  • What is HIIT?

    HIIT is an acronym that stands for High Intensity Interval Training.  In traditional cardio, such as a treadmill, you maintain a steady heart-rate throughout the workout. In HIIT training you do rounds of higher-intensity exercise, elevating your heart-rate, followed by a period of rest to bring your heart-rate back down. HIIT is highly effective for burning calories both during the workout, and even a "post-workout burn" of up to 2 hours. The HIIT rounds in the TA2 program include 1-minute of high-intensity exercise, followed by 30-seconds of rest.

  • What is Tabata?

    Tabata is a type of HIIT training, with shorter intervals. In traditional HIIT the rounds of exercise can last up to 3-minutes. Tabata intervals are shorter with 20-seconds of intense exercise, followed by 10-seconds of rest.  To maximize the benefits of HIIT you need to challenge yourself, and the shorter 20-second rounds make it easier to push hard during those high-intensity rounds.

  • How does the TA2 HIIT & Tabata program work?

    The TA2™ program consists of alternating rounds of HIIT and TABATA, utilizing Undersun Resistance Bands. Each round is made up of multiple exercises, each targeting specific muscle groups. The sequence of each round is designed to maximize the energy and intensity of the workout, yet provide adequate recovery time. These workouts are short in overall time but are fun and highly effective.

  • How many times a week do you do the workouts?

    In the TA2™ HIIT & Tabata program, it’s recommended that you do the workouts a minimum of three times a week. To maximize your results you can do the program up to four times a week. Any more than 4x’s a week you will not be getting adequate recovery time.

  • How long does each workout take to complete?

    At the beginning of the program, you will be able to complete a workout in under 25 minutes. As you progress through the weeks the workout time will increase gradually, but you will still be able to complete each one in approximately 40-minutes.
