Tabata Squat

The Tabata interval is 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of
rest for 8 intervals. Tabata score is the least number of reps performed
in any of the eight intervals.

For example: start your timer (smart phones have tabata timer apps that really help- I have Gymboss for iPhone), do as many squats as possible for 20 seconds, then rest for 10 and write down your reps for the first interval, keep the clock running, when it hits 30 seconds start again until your clock hits 50 seconds, rest for 10 and write down your reps…… keep doing this for 8 intervals. Your score is your lowest number…..so keep those numbers high! BURN!! 😉

Post score to comments.

  1. 16 on last rep-all others were 17
    Closest to butt to floor as I could get

  2. Just hit the floor on 17 when the timer went off one round 18 all others 17

    1. Now I'm not sure how I'm going to walk up 2 flights of stairs to get the kids!

  3. 14

    I went ahead and did 16 rounds as I just felt like I hadn't worked up enough of a sweat yet.

  4. 18 reps. Knees cracking and legs burning! I got confused…how long total should the workout be? All other tabatas took 16 min total…but that's 32 intervals right? We were supposed to do 8?? So that makes the total time 4 mins?? I did 16.

  5. I know the picture of the day is supposed to be all about the puppy but the lady in the back cracks me up. It looks like she is wearing under-roos! Where can I get me some?

  6. 12 for two rounds, the rest were 13
    Now I'm going to Tabata sit ups and back extensions since I missed yesterday

  7. 15, first round. I find that funny that my lowest was on my first round.

  8. Ran 3 miles

    23 on all rounds

    Love tabata–i had very little time this morning. Thanks for the short, sweet workout.

  10. 14 every rep. Squat to just below 90 and back to start. Then 8/15 wod then RPM.

  11. 17… The rest were 20/21. First set 17, takes my knee time to warm up I guess 🙂

  12. 16 on first round, the rest 17. But 16 is the one that counts.

  13. 19 first round was the lowest – must have just needed to warm v up and find my rhythm!

  14. 11 was my lowest because I lost count and had to pause… all others were 14+ Great way to wake up on Hump Day!

  15. 16.
    First two rounds were 16, all others were 17. Kept Squats super low.

  16. 144 total
