    Default Tried the Tabata for the first time

    Today is my variety day. I usually do two-handed swings, 5 sets of 10 reps with 100lbs. with a T-handle. After reading the details of how to use the Tabata technique, I decided to try it today.

    Just to make sure I did it right... I did 20 seconds of swings with a 10 second rest for 4 minutes, totaling 8 sets. I think that is right.

    It felt great, very efficient. I look forward to trying it with 4 minutes of left handed high pulls, followed by right handed for 4 minutes on my next variety day.

    Those are some heavy swings! Were you gassed at the end?

    I'd be very interested to find out how the heavy swings compare to the `traditional` Tabata exercise, which is body-weight squats, or squat thrusters with light dumbbells. I've tried both, and they're killer!

    Yesterday was my heavy day on ROP and after my ladders, which just about kicked my ass, I rolled 4 mins for swings. So tabata it was. It was pretty grueling and noticed it was a lot more anarobic than aerobic. So my new rule is if I roll 4-6 min from now on it's tabata time!
