Default Tabata anyone??

I have just recently found out about Tabata. Has anyone done this before? If so, what do you like /not like about it? Have you gotten any results from it?

When I did CrossFit we often did tabata workouts. It is intense! You have no idea how a 16 minute workout can be that effective, but wow, it is hard. I think it's a great way to vary your training. HIIT is fabulous for burning calories and has a greater after burn than steady state cardio. I also love that it incorporates both strength and cardio elements. It's very time efficient.

If you do tabata right you will surely get a great workout but remember, it's short, so there's no half-a**ing it! I also probably wouldn't do it every day. It's a great way to mix things up though.
