What do you like to do when you've finished a WOD?



Individual Training

Work on a weakness, practice a skill or increase your strength.


Tabata Intervals

Thruster 30/20kg

Rest 1 minute

Box Jump 24/20"

Rest 1 minute

Sit Ups

Rest 1 minute



Tabata Intervals consist of 20 seconds of maximal effort training followed by 10 seconds of rest repeated for a total of 8 intervals.  So each Tabata lasts a total of 4 minutes.  In the above workout we will take the sum of the number of repititions performed in each interval and that will be your score for the workout.


This method of training and the name 'Tabata' comes from an original piece of research carried out in Tokyo by Dr. Izumi Tabata et al and was first published in 1996 in 'Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise'.  The abstract from the original research can be found here.
