TABATAGENERATOR (tabatagenerator.com and tabatagenerator.net) is a web based tool that generates a random interval workout.
TabataGenerator generates a Crossfit oriented Tabata interval workout, but includes many exercises from other programs as well.
This website allows you to select your equipment (exercises requiring specific equipment that was not selected will not be part of the generated interval workout) and the amount of different exercises that you want in your interval. Then a Tabata workout is generated.
All generated exercises have links to videos, demonstrating the movement (not part or property of TabataGenerator).
This website also allows you to execute your generated Tabata with a synchronized timer. Simply click the "Start Tabata" button after generating a workout.
You have no equipment or you are new to Crossfit ? No worries. There are plenty of body weight exercises requiring no equipment.
This tool is perfect for home training.
Some of the features offered on TABATAGENERATOR:
- Automatic generation of interval workout based on selected equipment
- Change an exercise in a generated interval
- Do the interval with a synchronized timer and voice announcements
- Interval of the Day - new interval every day
- Videos of the exercises

CrossFit is a fitness program created by Greg Glassman and is a registered trademark of CrossFit, Inc. which was founded by Greg Glassman
and Lauren Jenai in 2000. Promoted as both a physical exercise philosophy and also as a competitive fitness sport,
CrossFit workouts incorporate elements from high-intensity interval training, Olympic weightlifting, plyometrics, powerlifting, gymnastics,
girevoy sport, calisthenics, strongman, and other exercises. It is practiced by members of over 13,000 affiliated gyms, roughly half of which are
located in the United States, and by individuals who complete daily workouts (otherwise known as a "WODs" or "workouts of the day").
CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program consisting mainly of a mix of aerobic exercise, calisthenics (body weight exercises), and Olympic weightlifting. CrossFit, Inc. describes its strength and conditioning program as "constantly varied functional movements executed at high intensity across broad time and modal domains," with the stated goal of improving fitness, which it defines as "work capacity across broad time and modal domains." Hour-long classes at affiliated gyms, or "boxes", typically include a warm-up, a skill development segment, the high-intensity "workout of the day" (or WOD), and a period of individual or group stretching. Some gyms also often have a strength focused movement prior to the WOD. Performance on each WOD is often scored and/or ranked to encourage competition and to track individual progress. Some affiliates offer additional classes, such as Olympic weightlifting, which are not centered around a WOD.
A version of HIIT (High-intensity interval training) which was based on a 1996 study by Professor Izumi Tabata (田畑泉) et al.
initially involving Olympic speedskaters. The study used 20 seconds of ultra-intense exercise (at an intensity of about 170% of VO2max)
followed by 10 seconds of rest, repeated continuously for 4 minutes (8 cycles). The exercise was performed on a mechanically braked cycle ergometer.
Tabata called this the IE1 protocol. In the original study, athletes using this method trained 4 times per week, plus another day of steady-state training,
and obtained gains similar to a group of athletes who did steady state training (70% VO2max) 5 times per week. The steady state group had a higher
VO2max at the end (from 52 to 57 mL/(kg•min)), but the Tabata group had started lower and gained more overall (from 48 to 55 mL/(kg•min)).
Also, only the Tabata group had gained anaerobic capacity benefits.
In popular culture, "Tabata training" has now come to refer to a wide variety of HIIT protocols and exercise regimens.
