“Tabbatta This”

Compete 8 rounds of 20 secs work and 10 secs resting on all of the following movements.

  • Row for calories
  • Air Squat
  • Pull up
  • Push Up
  • Sit Up

The aim id to score as high as possible during 8 sets of each movement, however your lowest number is your final score. For example; if you conduct your 8 sets of push ups and score … 19-19-18-15-15-14-12-06, your sore is 06 for push ups

If you do not know what Tabata is, I’ll explain a little bit about it. Tabata was founded in Japan by Izumi Tabata. He conducted tests on two groups of athletes; comparing moderate high intensity training with high intensity interval training.

The results were that the athletes training in high intensity interval training improved their aerobic systems as well as their anaerobic system. The athletes who did the moderate high intensity training only improved their aerobic system and had little to no increase in their anaerobic system.
