Jul 4 WOD: Alternating tabatas

According to wikipedia, the tabata is "20 seconds of ultra-intense exercise (at an intensity of about 170% of VO2max) followed by 10 seconds of rest, repeated continuously for 4 minutes (8 cycles)."

I think it's a great exercise because it's short and sweet, but also intense enough to kick you in the *ss. You can tabata just about any exercise as long as you have a timer. You don't want to be counting on your own because you'd be too busy getting your *ss kicked (or kicking *ss, depending on how you look at it).

Anyway. We did alternating tabatas and tabata abs today:

- Squat cleans (Rx: 65 lbs)
- Burpees

< 1 min rest >

- Mountain climbers
- Russian twists (Rx: 14 lbs)
- V-ups

My score: 39. The breakdown of lowest scores: squat cleans - 3; burpees - 4; mountain climbers - 20; Russian twists - 6; V-ups - 6.
