"Tabata This" is one of those old-standby CrossFit WODs; a benchmark we might repeat a couple times a year to measure our progress. While the main focus of Tabata intervals seems to be power output, we also learn a thing or two about stamina with this workout. For example, on some movements it's easier to hold a consistent score than others. The number of calories you row may stay the same in each of the 8 rounds of 20s row sprints, same goes for squats or sit-ups. However the pull-ups and pushups are almost certain to decay dramatically. I could do 18 pull-ups in 20 seconds yesterday, but I still ended up with a pull-up score of 7 after 8 rounds.
It's always fun to see your trainers put up scores against one another. Andrew returned for a visit yesterday, and I thought it was cool to see that he, Paul, and I all ended up with the same total of 46 reps RXed for the workout. Great work by everyone who came, make sure to record it in your books for next time!
