Tabura, translated in Swahili, is a type of training used to improve military endurance and strength in Africa. Recently CRUNCH fitness has turned this military exercise into a workout regime combining kickboxing, West African dance moves and, in an odd twist, live music.
As with many high intensity workouts, Tabura, is sure to burn a ton of calories. We recommend to stretch and stay hydrated during and after any intense fitness program.
The human body has two kinds abdominal fat: subcutaneous and visceral. Subcutaneous fat is the stuff that you can pinch and move with your hands; visceral is the kind that can make the belly bulge, but feel hard to the touch (the notorious beer gut). Even if you don’t sport a beer belly, you might still have visceral fat that could be giving you health problems.
While being overweight is not an ideal state of health in general, it’s the visceral fat in particular that nutritionists and health experts cited at ScienceBlog.com connect most commonly with diabetes, glucose-related problems, hypertension, and heart disease.
Problem is, visceral fat doesn’t always stick out. Doctors have discovered thin-looking patientswhose abdominal organs are packed with visceral fat. These people face the same kind of health risk as their more obviously beer-bellied counterparts.
