    Tabata?

    Primal Fuel
    Any one have an opinion on it? I'm wondering since its high intensity, and mark only prescribes short intense workouts, I think this could be ideal?

    I do it once a week. It fits as your "sprint" session.

    I dunno what you want out of training, but this is what I do to stay strong and metabolically fit:

    2x/week lift heavy
    1x/week tabata
    bike or walk to work and home 3-5 days a week and take one longer hike on the weekend.

    I just want to get lean dude. Like a crossfit dude. Well. Kinda. Not that ripped because I know you gotta do a lot of their movements and I don't have the equipment for that. I have 4 kettlebells though!

    Here is a good article that supports Neckhammer's suggestion and also an adjustment to Tabata. Do 1 x 4 minute sprint.
