Working out with the Marines with Tabata

HIIT, Tabata training have become more and more popular in army & Marines training. In this article, the writer describes a 3 legs Tabata training based on potential "real" situation.

"Like the PFT, our test consisted of three parts: running, lifting, and leaping. Unlike the PFT, though, Burke's workout was modeled on Tabata protocol, meaning it was divided into short rounds of concentrated effort, with the briefest of breaks.
Round one played to my strengths. Carrying rifles, we sprinted back and forth across a 25-yard field, dropping to our stomachs every 20 seconds, repeating that cycle 8 times. "
