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