-Boot Camp KILLIN IT!-
Yesterday’s workout was AMAZING!
These ladies are killin’ it!
First off, it was raining the entire time. I anticipated a few bootcampers would be absent b/c they have been sick. There were six ladies kickin’ butt last night!
The workout worked out perfectly, despite the conditions!
We set up underneath the gazebo at the LSU lakes. I had planned for rain, and the workout went smoother than I had anticipated! I didn’t know if there would be other people hanging out underneath the gazebo because of the rain, but we lucked out. We had it all to ourselves, for the most part! Towards the end of the workout, some ladies sat down at one of the picnic tables and ate crawfish! Not the best smell while you’re working out, but oh well! LOL! 🙂
We warmed up with a Tabata bodyweight sequence, then wasted no time falling right into an upper body strength circuit. We used a work:rest ratio of 30 sec:15 sec. I had planned on this initially, but decided it might flow better with a little longer rest interval. Lo and behold, the ladies WANTED shorter rest intervals! HECK YES!
I had the ladies partner up, and while one was performing an upper body exercise with the Superband, the other was doing step-ups.
The circuit incorporated the 1/2 inch Superbands and various step-ups using the picnic table benches:
- Hi Pull
- Push Presses
- Hammer Curls
- Bent-Over Row
We went through three rounds of this circuit, which turned out to be a butt-kicker! On round one, the ladies did alternating step-ups; on round two, the ladies did lateral step ups; on round three, the ladies did alternating step-ups. They were step-upped out!
After a short break, we fell right into circuit numero dos, which focused on the lower body. For this circuit, I had the ladies keep their partners; while one was using a 1-inch Superband, the other was using the Miniband to do various walks. We kept the same 30:15 work to rest interval!
Here’s how it went down:
- Alternating Lunges/Miniband Forward & Backward Walk
- Lateral Lunge Left/Miniband Lateral Walk
- Lateral Lunge Right/Miniband Forward & Backward Walk
- Power March/Miniband Lateral Walk
We completed two rounds of this circuit and the ladies were FRIED! Everyone was sweaty and happily fatigued! It was great!
