Maybe Physio/Chiro should take a look at that. That's exactly the kind of fat loss program I was talking about. Funny you happen to post this the very next day. :)
It is, essentially the Tabata method. I've done the program many times, only doing Thrusters with dumbells, instead of sprinting. It's a killer!

You should probably work your way into it. It's very demanding on your ability to recuperate, so 3 times a week should be more than enough to start off with. Then you can go on to 4 and 5 after a while.

I used to do this High Intensity training in college. it is pretty brutal if you go all out for those 20 seconds. Great workout. I need to start doing it again.

Is it really that hard, as people say it is. Cos i always do this high intensity/low intesity combines training on pretty much anything i do that is cardio. You lot keep saying its really difficult.

So let me get this straight?

1-4 minutes Warmup
5-9 minutes 20 seconds sprint, 10 second rest x8
10-14 minutes Warmdown

And that makes you almost kill yourself? Im gonna try this soon and see how it goes for me. But somehow i dont see it hurting that much, i just cant tell yet however.

If you're able to go fast enough for it to be effective. You can also do it with punch outs on the heavy bag or mitts, front squats with weights, burpees, etc.

Personally I've done them with dumbells, where I do a front squat and then thrust the dumbells above my head, when I get up (thrusters). Very painful :)

hell with colerstol being a major killer, (apart from my punches, jks) this will be the next biggest killer.

you wanna be cremated or burred eXig3?

At my gym, I have the guys doing it 20/10 with Burpee's, split jumps, all out punching, and split jumps again. They do it for 4 two minute rounds.

The real killer is doing it with something heavy, like front squats, snatches or thrusters. 20/10 x 8. That WILL kill you. And if it doesn't, you need to put more weight on. ;)

u know what this exercise reminds me of? u ever had that pad for nintendo 8-bit?? it was kinda like the DDR pads except this was a racing game.. well u'd have to step on the pads as fast as u can until the race was over which usually lasted about 20 sec. after about 3 races i was so tired i couldnt play anymore. i forgot what the game is called...
