WOD -“ Tabata this”

Tabata work on the following:            

  • Air Squats
  • H/R Press ups
  • Ab-mat Sit ups
  • Pull ups

*Rest 2 minutes between exercises*

Tabata is a high intensity interval training method where you work 20 seconds on/10 seconds off for 8 rounds.  Your tabata score is your lowest number of reps achieved in any of the 8 rounds. For example in Tabata Press ups you would do as many press ups you could in 20 seconds then rest 10 seconds for 8 rounds. If you scored 15-12-12-12-12-12-9-12 for the 8 rounds then 9 would be your tabata Press up score.

The method was named after the Japanese Doctor, Dr. Tabata and is awesome for building endurance in specific exercises.
