“Tabata Something Else”
A Tabata interval is 8 rounds of: 20 seconds work / 10 seconds rest.
In this WOD, you will execute 8 rounds of one exercise, then shift to the next exercise. There are 4 total exercises (32 total rounds of work). This WOD is 16 mintutes long; only 10 minutes and 40 seconds of that is “working time”. It does not matter which exercise you start on or what order you do them in. Do all 8 rounds of one exercise prior to shifting to the next. The exercises are:
Situps (unanchored ABMAT)
Your score is the total number of reps you complete. HOLD YOURSELF TO STRICT STANDARDS ON COUNTING REPS. You want to give yourself an honest comparision of your previous effort and of future efforts, as well as an equal judging ground against other athletes. The most commonly “cheated” reps are: not full extension at the bottom of pullups, not full depth or full extension in pushups, torso not breaking the perpendicular line at the top of situps, shoulder blades not touching the ground at the back of situps, not achieveing FULL hip and knee extension at the top of the squat and not getting hip crease below knee at the bottom of the squat.
