Tabata Something Else – (insert expletive)

Nausea inducing sit-ups.

Nausea inducing sit-ups.

Warm-up: 2 Rounds – 10 Pull-ups, 10 Push-ups, 10 OHS, 10 Dislocates, 50 Jump Ropes

Row: 500m LIGHT (work on form)

MetCon – Tabata Something Else:
4 Tabata Intervals (20 seconds work, 10 seconds rest, 8 rounds)
Air Squats

Score Total Repetitions

Tabata intervals suck.  Four Tabata intervals back to back suck even more.  All of that scored for total repetitions is recipe for a suckfest.  But doesn’t it feel so good once it’s over?

Speaking of Tabatas…have you ever thought about Tabata’ing something else, literally?  Here’s an easy one: Tabata your work.  Those of you with a desk job usually have access to the fabled interweb.  We all know how much of a time consumer this so called interweb can be.  It makes getting things done hard sometimes.  Try Tabata’ing your work!

Create a checklist with the most pertinent tasks on top.  Now shut off all distractions and DO WORK for the next 20 minutes.  You have to work quickly and efficiently.  There is no skipping an item on the checklist.  At the end of the 20 minute work interval, take a 10 minute break.  Now repeat 7 more times for a total of 8 rounds.  Hey look!  That’s 4 hours of work.

Now if I could only figure out how to do a “strength cycle” for my work week like I’ve done with the Tabata protocol.

Off to erase some names (Forrest’s) off the gym PR board,

    Other than Tabata’ing your job it is difficult for me to find something you could Tabata in everyday life other than some other form of work (like housework or chores) that would be beneficial. You could Tabata eating meals or driving somewhere…but that’s stupid. :-D

    I tabata’d my cereal this morning, but i need a bigger bowl to get all eight rounds. Also, today I plan to apologize to Blake for ending his reign on the board for Tabata and to let forrest know there is no shame in third place.

    Sadly that is a pic from the last time we did TSE. So as it stands, we have yet to see James this month. We don’t want him bringing his sickness this way though.
