Tabata Chang is a Brazilian fitness model, entrepreneur, and internet personality who owns a popular swimwear line.

From Rio De Janeiro, Tabata didn’t always have a fitness figure. She lived most of her life doing things girls her age would do; going out to events, eating, and drinking alcohol.

However, there came a point where Tabata became ‘fed up’ with her lifestyle, deciding to take a step towards self-improvement. As she says; “One fine day I decided to take up fitness!” The results from training didn’t show up immediately, but Tabata was persistent.

Training and watching her diet carefully day in, and day out. Tabata gradually transformed her physique, and life; becoming known for her transformation, and awesome pictures on social media.

“Quadriceps are conquered with pain! Yes, you will feel pain in training! Working out is the same as dieting – if it’s too easy, you’re doing something wrong. Haha, want to feel pleasure?! Have sex! Do not look for pleasure in leg training…”


Training Abs Multiple Times a Week

Usually, before or after her main workout, Tabada will do some ab exercises. On Mondays and Wednesdays, she’ll train them with heavy weights.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, Tabada will only use her bodyweight. And lastly, on Fridays, she’ll do functional ab training, combining weights with bodyweight exercises together.

Avoiding the Extremes

Not of fan of the term ‘cheat meals’, Tabata prefers calling her diet balanced. In other words, Tabata will eat foods which nourish her body, but also, she’ll enjoy something delicious every now and then.

Tabata says, by restricting herself too much with her diet, she would only prevent growth and repair. According to her, the key to long-term progress in fitness is to have a relaxed approach to it; not too strict, and not too loose either.
