Today’s bootcamp was inspired by the workout we did post-ride on Saturday. I replaced the exercises and doubled the time on each exercise, but the basic idea was the same: choose an exercise, do it for a minute; choose another exercise, do it for a minute and then repeat the first for another minute; build up as long as you’d like.
Tip: make the first exercise something you don’t mind doing for multiple minutes (i.e. probably not the BEST idea to start with burpees if you’re going to do 9 rounds, which would take about 45 minutes).
Build – up bootcamp
- jump rope
- static squat (or wall sit)
- prisoner squats (hands behind your head — get your upper back engaged!)
- jumping jacks
- mountain climbers
With the rest breaks, it took up the whole class just to do this! I’d probably switch things up (and look for a variation of this sometime soon, if not for tomorrow’s class). I’d also like to try it backwards so that rather than doing:
static squat/jumping rope/rest,
burpees/pushups/mountain climbers/plank/jumping jacks/prisoner squats/static squat/jumping rope
burpees/pushups/mountain climbers/plank/jumping jacks/prisoner squats/static squat/jumping rope/rest,
pushups/mountain climbers/plank/jumping jacks/prisoner squats/static squat/jumping rope,
Ohhhh, the possibilities!
Know any good bootcamp workouts?
