Aren't you glad Tabata Something Else doesn't include burpees? Sarah A. and Bridget make them look easy.
Today's workout is our challenge workout for the Spring Whole Life Challenge. If you are doing the WLC (and we hope all of you are!) you'll need to come to class today. If you can't make it, we are having a make-up workout tomorrow, Saturday, at noon. You might as well attend Regena's 10:30am yoga class and then stick around to do the workout.
The Tabata interval was created by in 1996 by Dr. Izumi Tabata. Dr. Tabata worked with Olympic speedskaters to develop a high intensity interval protocol that maximized their VO2 improvement. His research found that 8 intervals of 20 sec of work to 10 sec of rest increased VO2 max and allowed for maximum output for every interval.
Tabata Something Else was introduced to the CrossFit community on Feb. 20, 2005.
