  • I want a Tabata interval MP3 that isn't lame

    I thought this would be a great idea while out running this morning, and thought someone must have done it, but I've not had much luck finding what I'm looking for.

    Does anyone have any links or ideas, I've listen to a few on you-tube and they are lame IMHO, I don't want countdowns or anything like that, just 20 seconds of kick ass propper heavy fast music followed by 10 seconds of chilled. Something like this when it starts getting fast(which came on while I was sprinting on Sunday and was most awsome.


    Dropping to something sedate like the intro to this (my idea of sedate is probably not the same as everyone elses)



    It's probably not hard to do if you have the right programme and arn't a techno numpty (grok hit magic noise box with sick to free little men in-side singing)
    You know all those pictures of Adam and Eve where they have belly button? Think about it..................... take as long as you need........................

    that is such a good idea but i have no clue on the technology to do it! i cant even work out how to program my cell phone to do timed intervals so i have to count them in my head.

      I used to have an "eye of the tiger" from the Rocky movies as a tabata track...

        'Eye of the tiger' would be great, stuff like kettle bells or sledge hammer work I reckon I'd want something even faster for all out running sprints.

        Does no-one know of a really easy to use mp3 editing programm? One where I can just cut out sections of a track and join them up - feel free to laugh at my tecno-numptyness

          I've used a program called Audacity before to edit MP3s and WAVs... it's free and not too difficult to use.

            Agree with PrimalMama. I used Audacity back in college to make ringtones for my phone since I was too cheap to buy them.

            Edit:

            You'll also want to grab the first 25 seconds of System of a Down - BYOB. You could probably cut out the first 5 seconds but it's fast guitar leading into a scream. I used to have that in my HIIT playlist back when I was doing HIIT.

            The greater the achievement the more difficult the path. The easy road is granted to those less fortunate as a consolation prize.

              Thank you I'm looking at the Audacity site now and downloading it. That should keep me occupied for a bit.

                With Tabata sprints, do people tend to wait until they come to a stop before starting the count of 10 seconds rest?
                I ask because at that speed it takes me about 3 seconds to stop and I don't want that eating into the precious rest time.

                  it's not a Harry Potter incantation. Three seconds either way won't make any meaningful difference.

                    I'd still like some anthropological evidence on whether or not Grok started counting his 10 seconds rest as soon as he stopped

                      I use ITGO, I like it. You program the music and the times.

                        If you have an iPhone there's an app called workout here that has a tabat timer which can play any music that you have on your phone. Just found it last night :-)

                        It also has other timers, plus paleo recipes, crossfit workouts, logs etc. looks pretty good if your into that.
                        Not free, but only cost me $1.29 NZ, so not expensive either.

                          At the moment I don't even have a phone, let alone a iPhone, it's on the list of things I would buy if I had money that wasn't needed to keep family alive
