Tabata is a variant of high-intensity interval training. Tabata training can be done with various bodyweight exercises, but also exists in the form of sprints while running, on a bike or with other cardio equipment.

A sensible, correctly executed Tabata unit is basically a very advanced form of training and is not recommended for the untrained. Why and how exactly Tabata is implemented can be found in the current Supz article.
