Assuming Tabata intervals are as beneficial in any other modality is just that, an assumption.

hey this is the conclusion at the end of dr. tabata's abstract:

In conclusion, this study showed that moderate-intensity aerobic training that improves the maximal aerobic power DOES NOT change anaerobic capacity and that adequate high-intensity intermittent training may IMPROVE BOTH anaerobic and aerobic energy supplying systems significantly, probably through imposing intensive stimuli on both systems.
