Tabata Intervals

There's not much I can say that has not already been said about Tabata intervals, so here are three of my favourite articles on the subject:

Ross Enamait at (overview)
Rusty at Fitness Black Book (Tabata for fat burning)
Lyle McDonald at (why REAL Tabata should hurt)
The Tabata Myth (
Mark Young's view on why Tabata may not be as good as people say)
- and my comment on his post

For me, the key benefits are:

- it's quick
- it's effective
- it's nice when it's over
