Re: August: 'tabata everything' challange

I can't say that I agree with you on that Ted. I find myself pushing harder in the last 2 rounds.

8/10/09
SDHP
Me = #65 - 13/12/10/12/10/11/9/12
Wife=#45 - 11/12/10/9/8/9/9/10

We did work!!

Dr. Tabata did his first set of trials with tabatas with 8 rounds. On the second study, 6 or 7 was used.

Re: August: 'tabata everything' challange

Vaguely, I'd have to go look up the material again.

Based on my last set of tabata tuck jumps, you'll see it normalized on round 3-8. I'd have to go through my workout log and check tabata v-ups or air squats.

Ted,

I have to agree with Ron - - I definitely push harder the last round or two, but I try not to lose intensity in the other rounds also.

Today - - Week 2, day 2 (Tuesday)
Tabata Burpees.
This one was definitely high up on the suck factor.....OUCH!
6/6/6/5/4/4/5/5 = 41

burpees are hardcore. well done stephen!

its not as much the issue of pushing harder on rounds 7 & 8 as it is the physiological effect it has on the body. i guess it really depends on your goals and what you are trying to get out of the wod? the shorter rounds i am assuming would be better for heavier strength biased work and more rounds would lead to more aerobic pathways. maybe this is the reason gant wanted to shorten the rounds since his program was strength biased? i might be a little more used to that work since i am coming off a cycle of CFSB.

Thanks, Ted. Your explanation makes great sense. I suppose the strength-biased application to the Tabata cycle works well with fewer rounds. By that token, I wonder what would happen with strength gains were one to drop the cycle to four or five rounds at higher weights?

well what i was looking at was the total workload. for my #95 tabata push presses today i did #7030 of work. that is a really high amount of work. compared to the last time i did a wod of 3 rep ME on push press which was #1450 of working sets.

so for certain movements that involve bodyweight like running, pushups, etc... 8 rounds would be a proper workload, but if you are looking to tabata any barbell work 6 rounds might be a better stimulas?

Citing the total work done, you make a solid point. Obviously you did far more work the the full eight rounds of PPs, than with the 3 round ME. So I guess it would depend on factoring in the weight used, number of rounds, and total comparative workload.

I'm glad there are at least 2 people doing this with me. We did jumping jacks today. Linda wore me out lol. And the wife did better than me on this one.
