I've just started eating Paleo (pescetarian version), in an effort to both lose weight and become healthy (after years of unhealthy eating including an eating disorder). I haven't had any issues so far concerning the diet, never count calories,... (more)
I was wondering what nutrients become depleted during tabata workouts? What do i need to eat to replenish them, carbs, carbs and protein, nothing??? I've been doing HIIT traing for a long time, and just started doing tabata intervals, 20sec on/... (more)
Hello. My normal workout routine is either cycling or crossfit but I have noticed that on days where I do a Tabata workout of 4 minsx 4 intervals. I spend the whole day starving. I know HIIT workouts burn less calories but higher overall daily... (more)
Morning, I eat < 100g of carbohydrate a day, and on the weekend listened to a very shouty podcast (from 47:15) from Robb Wolf stating I should know my primary goals and eat to support them. What I am not sure about though is how I gauge... (more)
Anyone do 100 yard sprints? I want to start but a.) I live in Manhattan, with no tracks available, and b.) I'm completely inept at estimating distance :) I need an idiot proof way to setup a 100 yard area to do my sprints. Probably a weird/off... (more)
Because of the distance that my gym is from my house, Tabata, while taking only 4 mins to do, actually takes about an hour to get done. This is problematic when I get out of work late. If you were faced between doing Tabata and getting to bed at... (more)
Okay. It is time to switch it up. Gaining weight that could be partially muscle, but it is driving me nuts. I am wondering if anyone (women that are tough losers) has tried and had any good experience with Tabata training? I have done some... (more)
I've had great success losing weight on the paleo diet, but I've hit a plateau. I walk a fairly fast pace for 30 minutes most days. Lately, I've increased the amount of walking time to an hour, but it hasn't jump-started the weight loss. I've... (more)
When I do kettlebell swings, it's usually for 6 minutes, 25 lb. bell, basic swings, 20 seconds swinging, 10 seconds rest, tabata style. I've been wondering for a quite a while: does this count as a weight workout? Or a sprint-style workout?... (more)
Do you have a playlist that adds some motivation to your workouts? What are some of your favorite songs involved? I'm building a fresh HIIT playlist via Grooveshark to mix things up and curious to know what songs others enjoy when working up a... (more)
I have some interval training mp3s by Workout Muse that the timing/music is built in and they include a lot of different music. Of course, I only have 2 of those, so I get pretty tired of them. My most well thought out playlist is my BOOTY SONG... (more)
Are there any competitive track and field sprinters (or former sprinters) out there that incorporate HIT based training into their workouts. Based on the short recovery times recommended by Tabata, it seems it could actually inhibit speed... (more)
Has anyone come across a good widget for use in Tabata training? I'm looking for something maybe with the form factor of a wrist watch that can beep in alternating 20-second and 10-second intervals.
Hi everyone, as you may know I have started my October Month Paleo Challenge: No Grains, No Legumes, No Dairy, and lots of coconut milk (oops, my addition ;-)) At the same time I've started an exercise program but I'm doing it all at home by... (more)
I do not have an opportunity to workout outside and do more regular sprints, so I have been trying to do tabatas as a form of "sprints". I do not have a home-gym, just a little bit of floor and some dumbbells, I workout mostly heavily with... (more)
my training goes 3 on 1 off, i usually do fran, elizabeth, diane, etc with another bodyweight WOD, like chelsea, or something like that, and at the very end i do a tabata cycling 20/10 for 8 bouts, i was wondering if you can gain muscle, and... (more)
Hi all, wondering if someone could shed some light on this for me.. Going to start including some stair climbing into my weekly routine, I live in an apartment complex and I used to climb stairwell last year to great results and wan't to... (more)
I don't currently have access to a gym, but I do have access to my community pool. Does anybody out there have swimming as a staple in their exercise routines? If so, how are you using it to your advantage? Sprints? Long sets of continuous low... (more)
Do you agree with paleo-censorship?
