how can you power clean just the bar? wouldnt it be more like a reverse curl given the extremely low weight?
turducken - how can you power clean just the bar? wouldnt it be more like a reverse curl given the extremely low weight?
I am going for speed on the mvmt for the tabata protocol
I keep the form same as I would if there were 45's on the end
That bar feels damn heavy on the later rounds...lol
For the stronger/more conditioned people I am sure you can put weight on.
It is important to me to be sure I stress my cardio and not fatigue prematurely due to a muscle giving out
snakepitz - I personally have found the following to be best for me:
Power cleans (just the bar)
Burpees (without the push up and losing the jump when quad fatigue sets in)
Mountain climbers (i turn my fingers outward..try it..feels better)
From my understanding, to get the desired effect of Tabata's, the only two that truely meet the criteria are front squats and extremely high resistance bike sprints. Fact of the matter is that you should be absolutely exhausted at the end of a tabata drill. It isnt designed for speed, and you should not be doing technique intensive movements.
All that being said, you can get a great workout using a 2:1 work/rest ratio doing a ton of different movements. Just doesnt fit the "Tabata Protocol".
battle ropes, burpees, bw squats are tough but wouldn't injure you if you start getting exhausted in the later rounds.
