Healthy isn’t just the weight

19 Mar

Spent the weekend in SC for my nephew’s first birthday. Good to see family but it’s so exhausting. In a good way but  –

So I didn’t get a chance to post today’s workout. I taught a beginner bootcamp (which looks like it’s going to be a thing) this morning and then my usual bootcamp this afternoon – it was 60 sec on/15 sec rest for 4 intervals I think followed by a 12 round Tabata and my favorite partner bounding burpees (one partner held squat + jab/cross) while the other partner did a burpee followed by a long forward jump across the aerobic room. And back. I’m not sure anyone else enjoyed that one. 🙂 

Tuesday is just bootcamp (but then there’s Wed: Sculpt, Beginner Bootcamp, Pilates) and we’re going to focus on legs. Here’s the plan:

After warm up: 4 Rounds of 45/10

  • 1. Double squat press on top of step to other side
  • Row to fly
  • Russian Twist

  • DB swing + squat

  • 2. BB [Heavy] squats
  • [H] BB split lunge R
  • [H] BB split lunge L
  • [H] Calf raise
  • [H] Glute lifts with BB
  • [L] Good mornings –> see picture –>

In unrelated personal news, I’m co-teaching a class with an instructor and part of it (that I suggested) is we ask the participants to give up an indulgence so … today I gave up sugar. In two weeks, I’m going to give up something else – add another something in 2 more weeks and another something in 2 more weeks. I’ll let you know how it goes. Day one: so far so good. 🙂 To be perfectly honest, I’m not a huge sugar person, so I chose the easiest one first.
