    Can you tell me what tabata means?

    Eating lots but still hungry? Eat more fat. Mid-day sluggishness? Eat more fat. Feeling depressed or irritable? Eat more fat. People think you've developed an eating disorder? Eat more fat... in front of them.

    How are your energy and hunger levels? That's not much food.

    Tabata is a workout technique where you produce an all out effort for 20 seconds and then rest for 10 seconds, then all out for 20 seconds, rest for 10. You pick one excercise and typically do 8 cycles for a total of 2 minutes, 40 seconds of work and 1 minute, 20 seconds of rest per cycle. They are very effective if you go all out, 110% during the work cycles.

    oh thanks. I thought it was something like that but didn't know the details.

    Conan, I think I do need to eat more. I've been eating around 1800 calories.


    The squats were awesome. My legs are rubber.

    It's grandma, but you can call me sir.

    Haha... squats got you too huh? I did some for the first time the other day (with weight) and my legs revolted on me! I can't wait to do them again. Glutton for punishment I think.


    Tabata squats... now that sounds like a challenge. So do you just do as many as you can then rest, repeat?

    I used a rock and held it between my legs like a kettle ball. Then I did as many as possible for 15 second, 8 seconds off for 8 cycles. The last couple were tough. LOL I just went to weigh the rock and I had to go up stair to get the bathroom scale --- owwww stairs!


    it weighs 52.5 lbs

    This is what I did --- except with a rock. Had to go lower because due to the lack of handle.

    Hey, that's really interesting. I'd done the bodybuilder kind and yeah it worked the front of my legs good. I'd like to try these ones too. My gym doesn't have kettlebells. I should be able to do it with a dumbell, right?
