Well, the other day my friend and I were on our rest day and of course while "resting," we decided to hit the park for some facilitated playtime.
We were playing around with jumping tabata pullups as an idea hit us. What would be the benefit of wsitching the tabat interval for 10 seconds work with say 20 secs rest? What exercises could we apply this with?
IMO, this interval would be great for CLean and Jerk with a ~50-60% 1RM. This would allow a time interval of incredible force and acceleration with mild recovery, definitely without the VO2 performance seen in regular tabata. However, this application would enable the athlete to dramatically improve acceleration of an object with a short recovery period, maybe mirroring the sports of hockey or soccer.
So let me hear peoples thoughts upon this, especially what applications we could use this for and whether its is even worth approaching in terms of an athletes development in a strength program such as Crossfit.
