“Tabata Something Else”

Complete 32 intervals of 20 seconds of work followed by ten seconds of rest where
the first 8 intervals are pull-ups,
the second 8 are push-ups,
the third 8 intervals are sit-ups, and finally,
the last 8 intervals are squats.
There is no rest between exercises.

Post total reps from all 32 intervals to responses.

My total: 262 (I think...)

Certainly not my best effort on Tabata.

However...I did enjoy the strength component today: Deadlifts!

At first I was not looking forward to them at all, because my lower back was a bit sore, but after a warmup set of 10, I felt pretty good so I went for it! I haven't successfully lifted 225 or anything beyond that since back in February sometime, so I wanted to get past that number today and get it out of my head.

rep scheme was 5-3-2-1-1-1

175, 195, 205, 215, 225, 235

235 is a previous PR, and I'm glad to be back at that level. I could have and should have gone for 240, but didn't have time, or the desire. I was just overjoyed to get that 235 off the ground without any trouble whatsoever!! Yeah!!!


  1. Yay 235!

    I think what impresses me even more is that you got 205x2 and 195x3! :)

  2. Fewer things feel better than deadlift PRs!
