Tabata Something Else, Fri 1 May 2009

Friday’s WOD:

“Tabata Something Else”
Tabata Pullups
Tabata Pushups
Tabata Situps
Tabata Squats

Your score = the total number of reps executed in the entire workout.  Grab a notepad and pen from the front of the gym!

A Tabata interval is 8 repetitions of the following work cycle: 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest.  So, we’ll start the interval timer and you’ll do pullups for 20 seconds, then rest for 10, then go again for 20…until 8 intervals are done, then you’ll go right into pushups….
One quick read. I’ve had 4 people (in the past week alone) approach me about how to train for a marathon/ultramarathon/10K.  Much like Meegs did, I suggest they go cold turkey on volume running.  I point them to Brian McKenzie and tell them to jump into CrossFit and CrossFit Endurance with both feet.  Here’s just another example from our good friend Coach Rut at CrossFit KC (aka Boot Camp Fitness).  This stuff just works!
Live Strong!
