Tabata pushups

Post by volleyball_man » Thu Aug 23, 2007 4:16 am

For twenty seconds do as many pushups as you can - then rest 10 seconds.
Repeat this seven more times for a total of 8 intervals, 4 minutes total exercise. The score is the LEAST number of pushups for any of the eight intervals.

Thanks for the template Kevin! I used your description from the squat challenge.
:wink:

I used to train like this when I swam. One minute per lap - as fast as possible - resting for the remainder of the minute.

Now you're on to something! Tababa squats and pushups. Heck, tonight I'm gonna Tabata all three exercises and see what I get. :twisted: The warm-up will be very important, I bet. If I don't post for several days, you'll know I had a heart attack or something. :lol:

ok... so this sucked more than the squats...

11, 9, 3... then collapse.

hrm... not a good sign of my overall upper body strength.

My score is... 0!

18, 8, 8, 7, 5, 6, 5, 5 = score of 5

I actually did tabatas for all three exercises yesterday just for sadistic kicks. Check out Keith's exercise log for all the details.

These challenges are fun. I enjoy seeing what my capabilities are. And they give me some stats to base my improvement on. Call me sick. I think I'll try the pullup burpees next.

I'd call myself sick after the burpees!

I still want to try it.

For a real burpee challenge, try the 100 burpee challenge (safe) from Ross Enamait's forum. Basically it's 100 burpees as quick as you can :-)

Yeah, I also watched the video of the 100 pullup burpees on Crossfit. That guy was built like a gladiator and still collapsed at the end. I certainly won't be doing the 100 for a while. My body looks kinda like his, but upsidedown. :wink:
