Wow! I just gave that a try, and my thighs ache now!

My dog was sitting in front of me staring at me like I'm a lunatic. (I think he may be right )

you can apply the Tabata method to ANY exercise of your choosing. I use an elliptical. you can even do a circuit with it.

it's just a method...(5 min warm up) 8 reps of 20 secs hard work, 10 secs rest, (5 min cool down).

Um, ouch? That was the hardest exercise I've had. But I did it. I didn't follow the youtube girl's video though. I did a little research and they say that for the best results, follow the 20 seconds of squats and 10 seconds of rest for 4 minutes. I couldn't imagine dragging it out another minute.

And I made the mistake of sitting down and then getting back up...just to sit down again. And may I say? It was excruicated!!!!

I think I've heard about this type of interval training before. The premis (I think) is that you burn more calories when your heart rate is climbing. So if you let it rest and then get it back up again with each rep you are burning more calories than if you keep your heart at the same pace. At least thats what I heard.

I wanted to add, if you have asthma, have your inhaler around if you decide to do this exercise. Even if you're not having an attack, it'll help you breathe better.
It's been about 45 minutes and I still sound like I'm wheezing. Whew.

Sorry, one more thing. I found this video from fit tv and it shows alternate ways of doing the tabata method.

Also, if you scroll down into the comments, there's someone who has a link to a tabata clock that makes noises when the 20 seconds are up. That way you don't have to look at a clock .

how do you find it again after you download? I downloaded, but when I closed it it was gone....all that opened up in my bookmark was the homepage.

I'm pretty sure that you can save it instead of just openning it. I would just save it to my desktop (something I'm going to do later when I'm home) and that way it's easy access.

I couldn't get that one to work, but here's a link to one that I really love. Don't have to download anything, and you can change the numbers if you want to modify it from 8 reps of 20 and 10 to 10 reps of 15 and 15.
