The writer of this blog is 31-year-old former professional athlete, of which heart bounces fully to sports and exercising. After his own career, this Master of Science in Industrial Engineering and Management seeked a job matching his education at the university until he realised that he could combine both of his strong areas (valued university education and long versatile professional athlete background) of expertise as an entrepreneur in the field of sport and welfare Many people know him as a decathlete and he is called Tatu Pussila.
I love to do following sport events at the moment: squash, badminton, gym- / weight training, disc golf, snooker ja or course track and field. In the earlier life beside doing professional sports I've tried and tested almost every sport event you can name.

Tabata training, 14.03.2014
Since I started to publish these interval training exercises, let's continue with another one. Here comes Tabata!

And yes, after the training session you feel sooo good - at least at some point afterwards! At the end of this blog post you can watch my Tabata with burpees -video.
