Default ***totally*** adding this to my repertoire

Tabata training: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/...rticle1419091/

4 min sessions, high-intensity interval, improves both aerobic AND anaerobic conditioning

http://tabatatraining.org/?p=18


don't let the "high intensity" or the chirpy little chickie in the video put you off: "high" is relative - if the instructor's banging 'em out 90 to the dozen but you can only do 5, then that's high for you - next time, push for 6.

i'm going to find some exercises i can do (can't do jumping jacks - the hip and sacroiliac thing) and let you all know how it turns out.

Thanks for sharing - I'm going to try this! I'm strapped for time being a university student near graduation, so I can do this during study breaks.

absolutely - it's 4min a session and you can certainly do one a day or do a few throughout the day.

how's this for wierd: i really really like plank exercises!

never did them before - i can do plank rows easy but the leg raises are a problem (i feel it in my lower back and i'm unsure if it's "just one of those things" or if it's a warning sign).

yeah - can't do squats, either, lol.

no squats, no jumping jacks (unless on a trampoline), no deep-knee bends, no lunges.

i can do deadlifts, side-to-side lunges, step-ups, high-knees, and burpees, though.

Those are great exercises for Tabatas, so go for it ...
