“There are no bad intervals, only weak efforts.” – Greg Glassman

During a conversation yesterday about Dr. Izumi Tabata’s research and the significance of it for CrossFit athletes, it became clear that as CrossFitters, there are benefits of varying our time intervals, that there is no special magic in 8 rounds of 20 seconds work and 10 seconds rest, and any interval can impart fitness benefits, if the right effort is applied.
