Has anyone tried Tabata? My gym offers it and it sounds like it’s an effective workout in a short period of time, however sounds scary and hardcore. I’m not sure if I could make it through so I’d love to hear from any survivors!

Looked it up on Dr Google, hmmm does sound very interesting in theory. If you can survive the intensity it sounds of great success! Yeah, I'll be lurking too to hear experts describe it for them.

I've done Tabata before. It's intense but I didn't hate it. Until it involved burpees, then I hate any workout with burpees.

Yee-ouch, burp, upchuck, two I can see why, at least with my crabby self- centered Precious Pouch, she still rules ME instead of me ruling her, maybe it will always be that way!

Tabata base workouts are great! We can do anything for 20 seconds at a time.

You are not wrong. It is scary. It is hardcore. The fact is, this type of High Intensity Interval Training has been proven to have some of the best fat loss benefits of any cardio based workouts. Add some resistance training to the HIIT and you increase the benefit.

You should absolutely try it and let us know what you thought.

@NurseMichael I went and observed today, halfway through I realized it is pretty much the same cardio class I attended on Friday. (Same instructor) It definitely is hard but I’m going to start going next week. I do like the idea of a shorter intense workout.

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much
