Strategy & Briefing
The Tabata workout structure is great for training consistency, among other benefits. Although we are straying away from the standard scoring of a Tabata, our goal should remain the same. Picking a reasonable pace on the Rower or Bike will be your most difficult task today -- settle into a pace on round 1 that is neither crushing nor cruising. A strong 500m pace (for you) is a good starting point -- the bike will be more difficult since we don’t have a standard like the row… so adjust in the second & third round as needed to maintain consistency. The Air Squats & Abmat Situps will be much easier to pace, because they alternate. Move quickly/smooth, for the entire 20 sec of each round. You should be hitting the same reps on every round throughout. As you go through each Tabata a second time, work to match your reps from the first round.
