I'm trying to think of a list of total-body exercises that would be really good applied to Tabata. So far I've got:

KB/DB swings

BB/DB snatches/cleans

DB thrusters

heavy bag work (shadowboxing on the 10 second rests)

burpees

burpees + pull-ups (jumping up to the pull-up bar from the each burpee)

lunges w/ alternating DB presses (left foot forward, right arm overhead; right foot forward, left arm overhead)

what else do you guys do?

I've taken the tabita interval to a TON of stuff. In some cases it's just humerous attempting it. But it really can work well for many things.

I've done the tabita pull up burpees. Those are fun.

What you've got there Jason is a workout which is a lot more fun on paper!

Jesus on a bicycle.

I have actually had my son do tabata baseball swings with a heavier-than-normal bat. Great total body work for building the strength, endurance and bat speed. It also keeps him focused on form. Lots of fun too, he gets a kick out of it. For hitting, it's all about bat speed and I think this really helps improve it.

In my Martial Art classes I have my guys (and gals) doing Tabata kicks (in the air and on pads), Tabata jab/counters (against pads is best) as well as other 'fighting' movements.

Personally I have attempted Tabata front squats with a Oly bar (no added weight). I have also done bottom to bottom Tabata push ups (but I could finish b2b, I had to finish the last 3 rounds regular).

Well, today I did one Tabata set of burpees+pullups followed by half a Tabata set of jump squats (my legs gave out just past the 2-minute mark).

The entire thing hurt me in strange ways. (And this was after a BJJ class that was mostly bodyweight conditioning and sparring, so I think I did pretty well.)

The moral of the story: I'm glad my building has a pool so I can gently float around until I can move again.

Actually I just might be able to make Tabata baby L sits barely (with my baby at current weight, assuming she would sit still for 4 minutes, which would not happen). Last few sets would kill.

Tabata planche pushups would result in folks lying on the floor laughing after about 1 or 2 cycles and completely unable to do any more. And that's with guys that can do them well to begin with. Even tabata elevated feet pushups get pretty funny after a few cycles.
