Someone mind explaining to me what exactly tabata is?
"Tabata refers to the format of the workout. You do 20 seconds of any very high intensity workout, followed by 10 seconds of rest. Do this 8 times for 4 minutes in total. That's tabata! It's great because you can customise it a great deal and make it more interesting."
What exercises do you do with Tabata?
"Things like burpees, squat jumps, pull ups, a shadow boxing routine I have, power cleans, push ups, sit ups, sprints, skipping... anything. I just like to mix it up rather than do the one activity. As long as the activity leaves you exhausted when I do it for a short period of time, you can't do light activities, need something that will really get your heart rate pumping."
What's Tabata? (from the CrossFit FAQ at crossfit.com)
For twenty seconds do as many reps of the assigned exercise as you can - then rest 10 seconds. Repeat this seven more times for a total of 8 intervals, 4 minutes total exercise. The score is the least number of reps for any of the eight intervals.
Explain Tabata This (from the CrossFit FAQ at crossfit.com)
Tabata Intervals ( 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest repeated 8 times) is applied in turn to the Squat, Rower, Pullups, Sit-ups, and Push-ups with a one minute rotation break between exercises. Each exercise is scored by the weakest number of reps (calories on the rower) in each of the eight intervals. During the one minute rotation time allowed the clock is not stopped but kept running. The score is the total of the scores from the five stations.
Some performance insights and a scoring example from Mark Twight:
Lying down between exercises lowers HR faster than standing, sitting or walking, indicating better recovery in the short 60 second rest.
Alternating upright exercise (squat, pull-up) with prone or seated exercises produces lower heart rates, and allows greater overall level of work
Rowing first reduces reps on all other exercises
Rowing reps are not seriously affected if done last
Improvement happens really fast when the workout is done consistently (bimonthly).
High number of reps may be maintained for greater number of sets as fitness improves. Rep totals do not necessarily improve per set, but now I can do 6 sets of 7 pull-ups rather than doing 11, 8, 5, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, etc. which suggests that local area endurance and lactic acid tolerance improve with this protocol.
A total score of 53 (Excellent score, BTW) is determined by adding up the lowest number of reps in any set of each exercise.
12 row (use the calorie counter and call each calorie a rep)
This score is a 53
The Tabata is named after Izumi Tabata, Ph.D., a former researcher at Japan's National Institute of Fitness and Sports. He performed a study with rats comparing high-intensity intermittent exercise training (HIT) with low-intensity prolonged exercise training (LIT). For 8 days, two different groups of rats performed the following:
The HIT group: 14 tabata rounds (20-s on, 10-s off) of high-intensity swimming.
(Total work time: 280 s, not including the rests.)
The LIT group: Two 3-h bouts, separated by 45 min of rest, of low-intensity swimming.
(Total work time: 6 h, not including the rest.)
"In conclusion, the present investigation demonstrated that 8 days of HIT lasting only 280 s elevated both GLUT-4 content and maximal glucose transport activity in rat skeletal muscle to a level similar to that attained after LIT, which has been considered a tool to increase GLUT-4 content maximally." - Dr. Tabata

(4:30am - January 10, 2012)
How can I download just the interval timer into my Ipod????
(6:16am - January 09, 2012)
I like the "Katr Tabata Timer" for my 'droid. I use it to keep my timing while doing tabata cardio. I've tried some of the others, but I think the one from KATR Software is the simplest and easiest to use. And I can still hear my music.
(10:52pm - January 04, 2012)
just tried doing a set of tabata - resting in the hole, its as hard as it looks in the video, but I did it. bet I will be sore tomorrow
(7:18am - December 11, 2011)
You can use this clock offline. Download the link, download free Adobe Flash player. If you have a old laptop or use a tablet w/o wifi. Open IE, then open the saved link (tabata clock v3.15) the clock will be ready to go.
(2:25am - December 10, 2011)
Perfect! Now I just need a Symbian version :/

(6:50am - July 09, 2011)
ATTN. Elliot (Tabata Admin): I love this clock!! I use it every day. I hope you will fix a couple of glitches. Per an earlier email ....
This clock is great! Thank you. But I think there is a glitch. In case of confusion, a Definition of Terms Follows.
PROBLEM #1: I click "INCLUDE FINAL REST" but it never does. There is cheering at the end of the final 20 seconds OFF. No final rest. I want the final REST so I can time my recovery heart rate after 1:00.
PROBLEM #2: The 60 second REST BETWEEN is after and in addition to the final 20 seconds OFF at the end of each tabata. It should not be. So ... after the 8th 20 sec ON, there is a SINGLE PULSE and 10 sec OFF followed by a TRIPLE PULSE and an additional 60 sec REST, or 70 seconds of rest with a second needless bell.
PROBLEM #3: [TABATA THIS] asks me to choose a REST period. [TABATA] does not, but it asks me if I want to include the rest period? I would like to be able to SELECT and INCLUDE the final rest in both so I can record my recovery heart rate.
DEFINITION OF TERMS: [TABATA] = a single set of 8 "ROUNDS" Includes 20 seconds "ON" and 10 seconds"OFF" [TABATA THIS] = selected number of 8 ROUNDS Includes 20 ON, 10 OFF and 60 seconds of "REST" between. Sounds: "FIGHT BELL" to start 20 seconds ON "SINGLE PULSE" indicates 10 seconds OFF "TRIPLE PULSE" indicates 60 second REST between.
Thank you again for the clock.
PS: Below the clock, you included the following: "To download for offline use, right click this link and choose "Save Target As..." or "Save Link As...". But this does not work. I get and error message that says "This file does not have a program associated with it ..." and none of my AV files will make it work. I have a standard 2-year old windows set-up.
I hope this info is helpful.
(10:45am - July 07, 2011)
I should like to make a shameless plug. I have a tabata soundtrack generator that can be used to create any HIIT interval timing sequence here: http://tabata-protocol-soundtrack.appspot.com/
(10:44pm - May 16, 2011)
Nice one i made my own tabata timer, because i didnt like your interface. check it out at :
(4:53pm - April 22, 2011)
really slacked off over the past couple of months from Tabatas and Road Cycling, whew Im glad to be back!! mixing the Tabata clock with my Pandora Motorhead station makes for an awesome workout!! Thanks Guys!!
you sin lee:
(10:04am - April 05, 2011)
shut up push up !!
go go go !!
(10:51am - March 31, 2011)
Why can't i download the clock for off line use.
(12:28pm - March 27, 2011)
Great tool. Its bad that one cannot program the length of the initial countdown. 3 seconds is not enough time to be ready for the first interval. I add a set 'for nothing' at the beginning, but this makes for some difficulty keeping track of hard sets.
Yo, check it! (please?):
(11:00pm - March 09, 2011)
Someone mentioned they downloaded this for their 1st gen ipod. Would anyone happen to know if I can download the actual app and put it on the 4th gen ipod nano? Or would it have to be the mp3?
(10:58am - March 05, 2011)
(12:56pm - February 08, 2011)
yo, bro, could you make an application for iphone? i love that
(11:00pm - February 04, 2011)
i hope i can!
(7:35am - January 31, 2011)
@Eugene. There's loads of android timers. My favorite is HIIT Interval but just do a search on market.
(9:19pm - January 24, 2011)
Can you guys make an Android app for this. I love the sounds and the picture that comes up. -_-;
(1:40pm - January 24, 2011)
Thank you guys SO much... these downloads will definately take my workouts up a NOTCH! :)
(7:34pm - January 17, 2011)
This is just what I need to kick my butt in to touch! So many timers are fo iPhones or iPod touch, so this is perfect for my gen1 iPod nano. Old skool, bring it on
(10:56am - January 13, 2011)
This is the only thing I could find to help count reps! I searched for two hours!
(7:11am - January 13, 2011)
I am so glad I found this site! I uploaded it onto my phone and use it in the gym! This is just so great!
(7:39pm - December 30, 2010)
sixtimesthree, all you have to do to get more time is switch your on/off intervals so that your rest is actually in the "on" spot. That'll start your first interval with your rest time. So if you're doing 10 seconds resting, 30 seconds on, that'll give you 10 extra seconds at the beginning to get to your station instead of just the 3.
(2:25pm - December 22, 2010)
This is a great clock for a Crossfit gym. You can changes up the timer values to do fight gone bad, 20/20, etc. I love it!
One thing to make it even better would be to give 'count-up' and 'count-down' buttons in addition to the 'tabata' and 'tabata this' buttons
(11:29am - December 19, 2010)
Great timer, thanks!
(6:48pm - December 09, 2010)
Very good indeed,thanks so much.
(7:36pm - December 02, 2010)
This is the best tabata timer i found online... thanks a lot guys!
(2:34pm - December 01, 2010)
I love this web. I use the tabata timer every day but I done some modifications for a harder workout. Thanks guys!
(11:58pm - November 24, 2010)
I suppose the resting part is easier if you have full flexibility and and 3rd world squat comfortably.
(4:18am - November 02, 2010)
I can downlaod the offline vrsion, but when I try to open it, my computer says that I don't have the correct program. I have Adobe flash player installed. Any ideas? Otherwise, great timer. Thanks!
(9:12pm - November 01, 2010)
This is great, man. But I'm a non-tech guy. I only know how to use this in my laptop. How can I use this without the laptop, like at the gym or outdoor? Thanks in advanced! :)
(8:54pm - October 30, 2010)
chibatta with butter, ya baby
(11:42am - October 25, 2010)
Thanks for the timer! Wow that squat workout looks intense i'm gonna have to try it :D
(5:03pm - October 23, 2010)
I thought Tabata was Thabata Stevens from Bewitched. I will try the workout though....
(1:53pm - October 15, 2010)
Nice and funny!

HOW CAN I DOWNLOAD THE CLOCK TO WORK OFFLINE?

Tabata - 8 rounds, 20 on, 10 off (English Man).mp3 Countdown every transition. http://www.multiupload.com/AH3X1PINGX
(1:19pm - September 14, 2010)
Just what I needed
(10:52pm - September 09, 2010)
This timer is great. I just have one suggestion in case it hasn't been mentioned below. If you could add an option for a delay at the start that would give more then 3 seconds to get to the first workstation before the tabata starts. I find it just barely gives me enough time to get set up and I end up missing the first couple seconds of the first round. Other then that I think it is perfect. Nice and simple to use. Oh and if it could be ported over to blackberry that would be great :-)
(3:47pm - September 02, 2010)
This timer is amazing it helped a lot THANK YOU!!
(2:04am - September 02, 2010)
Thanks so much! Have started Tabatas and weight interval training and this timer is FANTASTIC!! Meeeaaauuuw!
(7:15pm - September 01, 2010)
Yes!!! I've been needing a good interval timer for so long-
I'm so thankful for this!
(10:44pm - August 16, 2010)
Thank you very much for this incredible interval timer! I've been searching for it online and I am so glad that I finally found it! I have already downloaded it to my PC! :D thank you ones again!!!!!
(7:31am - August 08, 2010)
Love this timer! I've been doing Tabata intervals consistently for the past three weeks with a variety of exercises and I feel incredible. It's also improved my running time. Love and live Tabata!
I did this with Kettlebell swings after my upper body M/E. Right now I cannot walk straight, and I have the same feeling I got when I drank tequila in college (somewhere between feeling great and about to puke).
(3:06am - July 17, 2010)
This is really a wonderfull timer. It would be really greate if this timer is put into Flash Lite format so it can be run on mobile phones.
(8:15pm - July 15, 2010)
I tried tabata with squats, push-ups, sit-ups and mountain climber....bah!! awesome workout!! will definitely do it again!
(7:42pm - July 15, 2010)
Love it! much more fun than just running for 20 mins..
i do the 20 min twice a day everyday
and seems to be good.
(2:52pm - July 13, 2010)
yea, it is fun, but i guess not everyone would do it a second time after trying. myself i am now in a good (personal) rhythm: every second day 2 times the 4 minutes with a kettlebell exercise.
(2:48am - July 12, 2010)
I would like to do exercises for my but. but i don't know what is the best.What do you recommend?:)
(1:54am - July 01, 2010)
this is amazing, I can't wait to try this. I can really feel the burn just watching this.
(11:41pm - June 25, 2010)
The Song Mixes makes tabata real fun. Thanks a lot this is what I was looking for so long.
(3:37pm - June 23, 2010)
Hi, the time is not acurate (circa 1 sec. for 20 sec interval). i know it is not a big issue, but anyway... :D What about the source code? can you provide it? Is it possible to have countdown display instead of increasing time?
(12:20pm - June 22, 2010)
I love this Tabata thing! It's only my 2nd day and it kicks my behind! I would love to have the Tabata This track without the cues just to pop in my CD player in my car. Is that a possibility? ; )
(10:08am - June 03, 2010)
That's the thing i've been lookin' for ! Thanks a lot, great job ! Hey guys how about your results ? Do you have lower %bf ?
(9:59am - May 31, 2010)
Awesome! Now I don't have an excuse for not doing tabata WODs alone.

(6:35am - June 16, 2009)
Could you maybe include a free to choose warmup phase after which the tabata cycles start automatically? I don't want to step off the elliptical to start the timer after warming up.
(8:23am - June 06, 2009)
I really like the clock, I use it every day. Thanks very much! I have 2 suggestion/questions though: 1. Is there a way to remove the sound of the animal at the end (when workout complete)? 2. It'd be nice if the countdown could start from 5 (or from any number) .

I let my wife try the Tabata Interval. She is in a wheelchair and she has a recumbent machine that is called NuStep. She loves the track Dellish. Overall, this takes fitness to another level. Tabata is better than your basic 30 minute cardio session.

This timer's great. I'm going to start using it every day.
It would be cool to get a volume control for the audio so it can be adjusted relative to music I'm also playing through my computer speakers.

(3:50pm - April 20, 2009)
Thanks alot very good clock and I love the optional music
(10:10pm - April 15, 2009)
You can find a Tabata Timer for your iPhone or iPod Touch at http://www.katr.com/iphone.php#tabata . It has visual as well as auditory cues so that you can watch or listen for your activity and rest periods. If you are listening to music on your device, the sound cues will overlay your music.

(6:01am - March 27, 2009)

(2:40pm - March 24, 2009)
Feel the burn hahaha it's awesome!!
(9:14pm - March 21, 2009)
I combined Tabata training with my weight training in the gym. I usually train with 45 lb plate but with tabata i hardly can train with 10 lb. Thx for the tabata clock. it kills
(2:44pm - March 20, 2009)
I love these MP3 downloads. My question is there any way there could be longer version tabata, say 50 seconds on with 10 secs rest?
(11:35pm - March 18, 2009)
Awesome timer. On "Tabata This" function, if you set number of rounds to 3, rest time between rounds to 60, rounds per tabata to 5, and rounds to 60 seconds on 0 secondss off it is set up for fight gone bad.
(6:52am - March 14, 2009)
Love the timer, thanks for hosting this.
Can you give us another option. Count down only before the work phase. I like doing this when I want a maximal effort every time and not scoring with the lowest rep count. When counting total reps I have had better success without the warning before rest periods. Output all the way to the buzzer.

It sounds like they're dying:)
(10:51am - March 07, 2009)
glad the tigers back! lol
(12:44pm - March 04, 2009)
Great stuff. My S&C students are going to rock this.
It is now numero uno on my Ipod.

a few minutes of this makes me feel much more workout than an hour of walking. thanks a bunch.
(8:39am - February 26, 2009)
Thanks a lot for putting this together!
(3:45pm - February 24, 2009)

(12:28pm - February 08, 2009)

UPDATE** Tabata Clock v3.15: Two new checkbox options available.
Countdown every transition: This will sound the "3-2-1" countdown voice before every "stop," "go," and "rest." Instead of only once at the begein, or before each tabata in Tabata This mode. *(requested by Asim)
Include last rest: This will count out the last rest period for when you are doing something like bottom to bottom tabata squats, or anything else where you're still doing something during the rest and don't want the clock to stop early.
(2:47pm - February 05, 2009)
hahaha! this is gold im going to use this for all my home tabata workouts
(11:20am - February 04, 2009)
Thanks Elliot. Of all the Tabata timers out there, I like this one the best.
Personally I liked it when the voice mentioned how many seconds were left. When we did the Tabata in the gym, the coach was telling us in advance how many seconds were left so that we had an idea of how long to go.
(10:39am - February 03, 2009)
Thanks a load for upping this guys, brilliant facility use it all the time!

Asim, good idea. I had the 3-2-1 on every transition in a previous version, but I thought it got too repetitive and annoying, so I took it out. But the best would probably to give users the option between the two. I'll add that into the next update.
(9:29am - January 31, 2009)
Thanks for putting this together.
(11:02pm - January 30, 2009)
It would be great if you guys can add the 3-2-1 Go at the end of the rest period as well as 3-2-1 Stop at the end of each interval.
This will give the excerciser a better idea of what to expect.
(9:21pm - January 30, 2009)
(2:34am - January 30, 2009)
This is awesome!
