TABATA Score sheet - so much fun in 20 minutes!

Over a year has passed since my first Tabata.  That workout was the second Crossfit torture I was introduced to in February of 2010.  I’ve done a few on my own since.  Today was my first as prescribed (Rx’d in CrossFit lingo).

Results:

  • Rowing – 500+ meters, 6 calories
  • Squats – 14, 13, 14, 13, 13, 13, 13, 14 = 93
  • Pull ups – 7, 6, 5, 6, 5, 5, 4, 5 = 42
  • Push ups – 14, 12, 9, 9, 8, 9, 7, 7 = 68
  • Situps = 13, 11, 12, 11, 11, 11, 11, 11 = 91

 

Now a little comparison to frosty, snow covered day at Bellevue University’s gym on February 17, 2010.  We left off the pushups that day (shame on us).

  • Rowing  was equal
  • Squats +2 —  held 2 more or 13
  • Pull ups + ? less but unlike the jump they were Rx’d.  I dropped 1 due to not reaching chin to bar on round 7.  So 4 or 4 less
  • Push ups +7  whoops missed that one before – started with 14 (mistake, Tabata is about pacing as much as first burst) and ended up with 7
  • Situps +3

Squats (air squats, no weights), pull ups (jump in my case) and situps.  Sounds easy?  Sure until the 2nd or 3rd rep rotation / set.  My score (again the low) was Rowing 6 calories, Squats -11, Pull Ups 8 and Situps 8 for a total of 33. The sum total was 56 calories for Rowing (500 meters), 99 squats, 78 pull ups and 79 situps.   Nice little 16 minute workout!
