    This is where you lower body strength people will have a chance to shine.

    For twenty seconds do as many squats 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 squats for any of the eight intervals.

    Reply to this thread with your score

    Oh dear…

    I’ve tried this once a few years back, and I’ve tried to forget it since. Might try it on the weekend.

    Well it got the better of me so I thought I would give it shot. I’ve never tried tabatas before and I was intrigued. As expected it was tough.

    9,10,9,9,8,8,8,8 so I guess my score is 8, well at least I can say I am winning for now 😆 🙄

    Since I am working on my squat form, I’ll “sit” this one out. I’ll post my Tabata choice!

    I’m in! I’ll do that in place of Day 2 tonight and supplement a few rounds of pushups, etc. Tracy might be game too.

    well… since i could not get out of the house to do my workout this morning… this was a nice alternative…

    Tabata Squats (8 intervals)

    12, 11, 12, 12, 12, 12, 12, 12

    so… i guess my score is 11.

    This was not nearly as hard as i expected… i am sweating a lot… but i think that is because my body is just now catching up… hahaha

    We’ll see what happens with my kangaroo triceps when i try brad’s tabata push up challenge. See kanagroos have mighty legs and wee little arms. Those vermin are pretty much modeled after me. I talked to God about it, told him it was cool as long as he helped me with the tabata squat challenge. Deal.

    21, 20, 16, 14, 12, 13, 13, 14 = score of 12

    I was actually so inspired by this challenge and the pushup challenge that I did tabatas for all three exercises. Check out Keith’s exercise log for the complete results.

    NatureDoc, that’s awesome. Your scores were relatively constant. Mine were a little less stable. Maybe I should have paced myself a little instead of going 100% right out of the gate. Now I’ll know for (hehehe) next time! 😈

    25, 25, 25, 25, 25, 25, 25, 25

    The last couple sets (especially the last one) were close, as I was beginning to feel muscle failure. They were all 25 because I couldn’t go any faster! I’m a little startled at the consistency though.

    One of the muscles on my left quadricep cramped up a couple minutes after I finished, and the muscles as a whole are pretty gimped. Walking down stairs afterwards felt soooo funny. I wanted to do some pull ups and push ups to go with it, but I was just way too tired to continue.
