Tabata Sit-ups & Burpees : Muscle Endurance -  Health & Fitness

This series consists of two 4-minute Tabata sequences separated by a minute of rest. For each Tabata sequence, perform as many reps as possible during the 20 seconds of work, rest for 10 seconds, then repeat for a total of 8 sets. Between Tabata sequences, there is an additional 1 minute of rest.

This series follows the pattern:

8 sets of exercise #1 (20s work/10s rest)
1 minute rest
8 sets of exercise #2 (20s work/10s rest)

The Tabata protocol, developed by Dr. Izumi Tabata, consists of alternating short periods of intense exercise with short periods of rest for a period of 4 minutes. The Tabata protocol can be applied to a variety of exercises including lifting weights and aerobic exercises.
