-Back From the Beach!-

Ahhhh…five days at the beach…after having the flu…amazing weekend…beautiful wedding…good times! 🙂

Back at work!

I’m happy to say that last night was the first workout for the first group of Baton Rouge Bootcamp!  We had a great workout!

Here’s what we did:

10 minute dynamic warm-up (jogging alternated with various drills such as high knee walks, butt kicks, inchworms)

Partner Relay: paired everyone up into teams of two, and had mats set up at 20 yards out and 40 yards out.  First group sprinted to the 20 yards mats and did 20 mountain climbers, then sprinted back.  Other group did the same, then first group sprinted out to 40 yard mats and did 20 more mountain climbers, then sprinted back.  Other group did the same.  We did three rounds of this, with a water break in between.

Kept partnered teams, and we went through three rounds of a 30 second work/30 second rest circuit, consisting of elevated pushups, reverse prisoner lunges, bicycle crunches, and burpees.

Cool-down time was well appreciated! 🙂  Everyone worked hard and seemed to have fun!  I’m excited about bootcamp!

    Hey Sarah, glad you’re recovered. I picked up a few Superbands and an orange J.C.Travel band while Perform Better still had free shipping. I should be getting them in a few days, definitely before the weekend. Can’t wait to try them out!

    Lol, Biskit’s backside action on the hip rotation vid! Quite the entertainer that one.

    • AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      I LOVE it when they have free shipping! 🙂
      You’ll get em right in time for my Ebook! Not working on it at all today, though, lol…I am SO tired right now! Gotta catch up from all the fun!
      Biskit LOVES the camera! He’s definitely here to help entertain! He was shredding his “bluebird” toy in that video…fuzz everywhere!
      Have a great week!

  2. Hi Sarah,

    Love beach workouts! Just the beaches are not as great here in the UK, especially in the North West. Blackpool beach is just not motivational! LOL

    • Hey Tom!
      I actually planned on shooting a segment while on the beach…but didn’t… 😦 Would have been great, though! The only day where it wasn’t super-windy was yesterday…the day we came home! NOT FAIR! It was still amazing though! My calves are sore from walking/running in the sand…I had “kite duty” with the kiddos!
      Have a great week!
