Workout – January 31, 2012 – Bootcamp

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

  1. jump rope
  2. static squat (or wall sit)
  3. prisoner squats (hands behind your head — get your upper back engaged!)
  4. jumping jacks
  5. plank
  6. mountain climbers
  7. pushups
  8. burpees

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:

jumping rope/rest,
static squat/jumping rope/rest,
…,
burpees/pushups/mountain climbers/plank/jumping jacks/prisoner squats/static squat/jumping rope

You’d do:

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,
…,
jump rope

Ohhhh, the possibilities!

Know any good bootcamp workouts?Β
