Whole lotta Tabata

For those of you reading this that don't know what a tabata is I will explain. You pick an exercise to do 8 sets. You work for 20 seconds, rest for 10 seconds until complete. All 8 sets take 4 minutes total. For my workout today, I had 4 exercises that I did tabata style. You count the reps for each set, with the lowest number being your score if you will.

Here are the results;
Knee Pushups 24/20/17/15/12/12/12/12 score = 12
Air Squats 19/18/18/18/17/16/16/17 score = 16
Sit Ups (Nancy stood on my feet, used Yoga mat) 13/10/9/7/7/7/7/7 score = 7
burpess 5/5/4/4/4/4/4/4 score = 4

Actually feel better after than before, I think I worked out a lot of the stiffness from yesterday's run. My thoughts today were with Martin and Marcy.


  1. Awww, thanks Ariel! Nice job buddy!

  2. Thanks to you and Ariel I now know how to do my Tabata workout correctly. I was doing the whole circuit and just stopping for 10 seconds every 20 seconds. I feel like a moron. This way makes more sense - I was just too proud too ask.
