Has anyone ever done Tabata training?

I have read about Tabata training and am considering trying it. Here is my understanding of how it works:
1. 2min warm up.
2. 4 to 8 intervals of the following (# of intervals is dependent on fitness level) 20s of the highest intensity pedaling, running, etc that you can maintain for a full 20s. You should be gasping for air when 20s is up. Then a 10s rest.
3. 2min cool down.

It sounds like it is primarily a cardio w/o. For 20s of max intensity lifting wts like bench pressing, I would not want to do that w/o a warm up set on each different wt lifting exercise. I'm skeptical about the idea of 4 - 8 min. Yes, I can totally exhaust myself in that time period, but is the time period long enough? I do rpm cycling class. This class has a combination of continuous moderate pedaling, high speed moderate strength pedaling, max strength low speed pedaling, and everything in between. I'm breathless at times, my quads are burning at times, and I'm exhausted when I finish. It seems to incorporate the goal of Tabata, but for a longer time period and w/ more variety. Still, I'd rather get the effects in 8 min rather than 45min.

Does anyone have any thoughts on the comparitive values of the two programs? Does anyone feel that my definition of Tabata is missing anything? Has anyone ever actually done Tabata (correctly done it and more than just once or twice)?

Google Tabata. My understanding is that you do 4-8 repetitions of one exercise choice the way you explained (20:10), rest 1 minute then move to another exercise and repeat. Do this 4 times, for a total of 20 minutes.
