My favourite time of the week- Bootcamp time!!! Today we did a modified version of Tabata Training!
I set up 9 stations. For each one, my peeps would complete 4 intervals. Each interval was 30 seconds long and had a 10 second break in between. 30 seconds were given in between stations!
The stations included Equalizer Planks, Gravity Push Ups, Jumping Lunges, Speed Skater Jumping Squats, FAST Jump Roping, Planks with alternating knees to elbows, Sit Ups with a Pilates ball with two oblique twists, Kettlebells, and Heavy Bag Front Kicks.
Here is an example of the Lebert Equalizer Planks- these are HARD. The final 30 seconds felt like 5 hours. I've included an option of push ups, and push ups with a leg lift as well! RIDIC.
The next video shows the Gravity Push Ups (inspired by Tracy Anderson!). They are gravity inspired because you are trusting yourself to fall forward, using your upper body strength to keep you from face planting! (Great incentive, I know...) You are trying to fling yourself back to your starting position by exploding back up! They are insanity- Especially after 4 sets!
Have you tried KETTLEBELLS? I seriously think every woman should own one of these mofos. You can do SO much with it, and even a simple swing is some crazy cardio plus muscular endurance. You want to make sure your gaze stays forward, chest lifted, using your hips and momentum to swing the kettlebell between your legs and straight in front of you.
I apologize for my chest in yo' face.
Make sure with kettlebells to stop at shoulder height and always make sure your wrists are strong and not bent!
I felt amazing coming home after another awesome workout. Unbeknownst to me, it wasn't the best part of my day.
