Tabata “Bottom to Bottom” Squat
Run 1 mile
Clock starts for run on rising from last squat.

The score is the least number of reps for any of the eight intervals.
The Tabata Bottom to Bottom Squat is a Tabata Squat but each rep
begins at the bottom and ends at the bottom. The turn around at the top
is immediate – no pause. The ten-second rest for each interval is also
held at the bottom of the squat as opposed to the top. Interestingly,
this squat, in contrast to the “normal” Tabata squat, motivates full hip
extension. Also, the ten second rests don’t seem as short with this
You will be posting your score = least number of squats in an interval and your mile run time.
