TOTALS: 15/15/13/9/9/7/7/6 = 81
I initially thought, never having done this before, that 45# might be too light. WRONG.......ended up frying my shoulders starting with the fourth cycle; reps in cycles 5 - 8 were broken.
that's interesting that you did the press cuz i was thinking of doing the same thing (actually push press). i was also wondering about what weight to use. i was thinking of using #95. my 3rm is #245 so i think #45 might be too light? i would hate to burn out in the later rounds and not get the full effect of tabata. today was a travel day for me so tomorrow i am going to knock this out at the gym.
