Default Tabata Training

Just barely read about it in the new Muscle & Fitness, its a newly devoloped workout by team of Japanese scientists, well heres a good link http://www.rosstraining.com/articles...intervals.html all I have to add was that it wiped me out COMPLETELY !! I did the M&F workout and its just insane how sore I am, I feel great though. Google Tabata and you'll find some good stuff, I totally recommend it.

Yeah, I've read about that, never really cared to try it. I enjoy doing HIIT cardio too much

We do some Tabata drills in our Kettlebell class. Very intense! If you go to Crossfit.com you can view some of their tabata workouts. Go to WOD(work out of the day) demos and look up Tabata Fight Gone Bad

Yes! Cardio and muscle endurance all rolled into one! If your not gulping in huge amounts of air after a tabata workout, your not from this world! LOL!

So thsi is pretty much short circuits (not johnny 5) and changing excercise every few minutes, right? this looks like what we've been doing in boxing conditioning forthe past few months. EXHAUSTING to say the least.

20 seconds on....10 seconds off. You can switch up the seconds as well. Just as long as you doing more work than rest, of course!

Great benefits can be gained through this kind of training.

I do HIIT cardio when I'm cutting. I would do hill sprints, 30 seconds on (2 up and down sprints), 30 seconds off. Highest I ever made it was 9 cycles and I would usually reach 190bpm by the end of it all. When I wasn't doing hill sprints, I'd do 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off on the recumbent bike. I was able to get my MHR to 207 last Spring during my cut.

Kind of the same thing except that I'm not doing things like pushups, jumps, kettlebells, etc.

But, I'm not a fighter, so my goals with training are a little different.

Ya I've been training a lot to go to the FLETC (Federal Law Enforcement Training Center) and this has by far been the most exhausting thing I have ever done. Oh and to be "true" Tabata training, the work ration has to be 2:1, 30 second uphill wind sprint, 15 seconds rest.
