Tuesday legs day

2 Dec

Bootcamp Tuesday will be a legs day. I’m thinking cardio Wed and upper body (biceps/triceps? shoulders/back?) Thurs

So — here’s the plan:

warm up: 30 sec or so each move x2

  • jacks – power jacks – squats- jump squats – alt lunges – plyo step ups

Circuit 1: 5 min

  • steps will be set up across the room in increasing height — no risers, 1 riser, 2 risers, 3 – 4 – 5 i think that might be all and then back down so 10 steps total. we’ll all start at one end and box jump across the room, slow lunge back. Drill continues for 5 min

Circuit 2: 5 min or as long as it takes to do 30 sec per step

  • everyone gets a step (if more than 10 ppl we’ll just have that many steps out) — 30 sec plyo step ups start with R leg/30 sec squats/repeat L leg — move a step and repeat — Drill continues for 5 min –> we’ll change it up, sometimes plyo step ups, sometimes box jumps, some squat to box jump, oh and my fav sit to squat jump along with split squats, etc

Circuit 3: upper body circuit –> with db – bicep curls 3 min vary

Abs: sit on step — knee in and outs 1 min

Circuit 4: repeater knees — go through each step so another 5 min

Circuit 5: upper body — triceps

Abs: plank for 1 min – side planks 30 sec/side

Circuit 6: 5 min –> jacks on floor – jacks on step 1 min switch lead leg after 30 sec. go through each step

Circuit 7: upper body — lat raises with band and flyes (cross band in front and pull back)

Abs: sit on step — russian twists

Circuit 8:

  • w/ medium db: 30 sec lunge R — 30 sec lunge L — 10 jump squats — repeat
  •  w/ plate — 30 sec wall sit — 30 sec squat to box jump — 10x jump lunges — repeat
  • 30 sec stomp R — 30 sec stomp L — 30 sec plate switches — repeat

***If there is still time ***

In groups of 3: (running group is timer)

plank                                      dolphin plank                                   squat hold

squats                                    alt warrior 3                                       turbo lunge

run out and back 2x          high knees out and back 2x            bear crawl out/crab walk back

abs and stretch and done!


Workouts this week and stuff

1 Dec

December y’all. 

Monday: Teach Beginner Bootcamp & Tabata

Tuesday: Teach Bootcamp

Wednesday: Teach Pilates & Bootcamp

Thursday: Teach Bootcamp

Friday: Probably off, maybe yoga

Sat: 1/2 Marathon that I have not trained for. It’s on the lower elevations of a trail but still. 13.1 is a long way. oops. Well, my time from last year is like 3 hours so I’m pretty sure I can at least beat that LOL.

Plan for Beginner Bootcamp:

basic warm up @3 min

  • 1 min plank feet on either med ball or stability ball
  • 10 push ups – alt arm mb or regular

repeat 4x

  • 8-12x stability ball one arm oh press
  • 15-20x chest flyes on the ball

repeat 4x



A lot of Beg Bc folks stay for Tabata so even though the workout is stepped up, all exercises can be modified. To modify this workout, switch burpees for another cardio move, e.g., jacks – mt climbers – jog in place, high knees, march in place, butt kicks, etc. Push ups can be done standing, chest press can be done without the bridge (and with lighter weight), squats can be a small movement, etc. You get the idea –

  1. burpees / v ups
  2. burpees with push up (advanced: jump down with ball, push up on floor, jump up with ball) / med ball push ups
  3. burpees flying squirrel (jump feet and hands off floor at same time) / bridge chest press 25#
  4. burpees with star jump /prisoner squats (advanced: below parallel)
  5. burpees lateral hop/ DB swing 25#
  6. planks/hovers at 10 sec rest
