The Tabata interval shown to maximally stress both anaerobic and aerobic systems is comprised of 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest repeated 8 times. Dr. Tabata’s research originally applied this interval to the stationary bike and CrossFit’s original contribution was to apply this interval to the squat, but Brad Hirakawa, one of CrossFit’s toughest, made practical use of this interval with Tabata lawn mowing!

Make a practice of experimenting with various intervals and applying them to a wide variety of functional movements. There’s fertile opportunity for discovering dramatically effective protocols.
