I'd like to start to introduce tabatta type training into my routine, but as I work in a city center and don't easily have access to parks or fields to run I was wondering if anyone has any tips on what the best way to do tabatta type training e.g sprints in the gym.
I find the running machines a bit difficult to do full out 100% sprinting as I can sprint pretty fast and it just doesn't feel safe. So at the moment i am thinking of sprinting up a incline instead, which should mean i can get the same intensity but at a lower and safer speed.
I was also thinking of adding a extra 5 secs to the
20 seconds of work and 10 seconds of rest to take into account the time it takes the treadmil to speed up and slow down.
Does this sound like a bad idea? or any other advice on this would be appreciated.
