Back Twinge – That Was Close!

Thursday after bootcamp I was too tired to work out and I had very little time to work with so on Friday I did my RKC workout at work. In fact, it was a run through of the Art Of Strength Providence DVD with my 45lbKB so it wasn’t incredibly taxing. That night however I […]

Keep Up

Tags: , ,

Since the infamous Body Beast on Wednesday I managed to squeeze in an RKC workout at work on Friday, an Insanity cardio workout on Saturday and a Deadlift workout on Sunday. Add that to the Bootcamp from last night and I seem to be almost on a roll of sorts. I picked Pure Cardio for […]

Bootcamp Abs and Momentum!

Tags:

Last Wednesday we did an abs workout for bootcamp, I was sore for days after since we really went after our weakness, the hip flexor. Once the Wednesday was done I had swimming with the toddlers on Thursday so decided to take that day off too. The problem with doing that is I end up […]

RKC at Work – No Excuses

Tags: ,

Don’t have time to work out after work and don’t want to get up sooo early to do it? I work at a “desk” job (albeit a standing desk) and if I bring my workout stuff with me I can squeeze in a quick 30 minute workout during lunch. Now I know people whine about […]

Finally, Kettlebells Come To Bootcamp

Tags: , , ,

I have been trying to get this workout to Bootcamp forever but since we don’t have any KB at the gym I had to bring 2 of mine and one participant had her own so it was time! Why are kettlebells so good? Partly because of the extended leverage the bell gives, partly because they […]

Ten On, Days 4 – 7

Tags: , ,

Day 4 – I am running short on many things, energy, motivation, sense of humour… Last night’s bootcamp has left me a little tired. Unfortunately my nemesis, lack of sleep, is in full effect and my will to participate in this program is waning to say the very least. However I feel like this is […]

10.74-78 – Weekend Catchup

Tags: ,

This is a short one, I took lots of rest this weekend mostly because I was still feeling the effects of the shit splints and soreness from last week. Not only that, stress from work had crept in leaving me short on sleep and feeling a little out of sorts. After Thursday’s bootcamp I did […]

10.47-52 – Fitting In

Tags: , , ,

It’s been a tough few days around here, we were away for the weekend in St Thomas Ontario visiting Thomas The Tank Engine and staying overnight in a hotel with a pool the size of a postage stamp. That said, I resolved to take my kettlebell and I did get in a KB workout on […]

10.26-29 – The Long Weekend

Tags: , , ,

It was Canada Day here this past weekend and so that meant a long weekend and an extra day off from coaching. After Bootcamp cardio during coaching on Thursday I took Friday off and took Saturday as an Olympic lifting day in order to try and work a little on my shoulder strength and mobility. […]
