Do not underestimate the difficulty of this drill. Believe me, you will be in the puke zone before you know it.

Mix up the exercises with the tabata protocol with something like:

Tabata car pushing
Tabata sledge hammer swings
Tabata sprints
Tabata burpees

This gives you 16 minutes of complete hell.

There are oodles of exercises. Just be sure to pick exercises that you can perform at a fast pace when doing this drill.

Do report back as i'd like to know how you get on.
Alright mate, tried tabata today, and i'm hooked! definately going to incorporate it into my routine did it this afternoon as it was run day today.

Started with skipping and dumbell swing/squats to warm up (and to finish as i found these fairly easy) and used burpees, press ups, body-weight squats and chin ups as my 'work' sets. the squats and burpees wasn't too bad, (hard but enjoyable) but the press ups and chin ups were pure ****ing torture! which surprised me as these are usually my strong area

Intend to do my usual training tomorrow then do tabata again on thursday, split it up to every other day.

Cheers for reccommending it mate
