On The Rebound?

Tags:

It’s no coincidence that my ongoing struggle with this mysterious 8lbs I have gained is going hand in hand with my inability to keep up to date here. My focus is on work and family rather than on my fitness at this point and I need to redress the balance. Last week was a strange one, I […]

2 For 1 Bootcamp – Bodyweight and Weights

Tags: , ,

It’s been tough keeping up, but here are the 2 workouts we did most recently. I have had some indication that I probably shouldn’t post these workouts since they might very well be stolen and used by someone as a bootcamp somewhere else. I guess my feeling is that if you can’t come up with […]

Christmas Crackers

Tags:

Last week ended with dabbling into P90X2 (PAP Upper) and Tapout XT (Yoga) and I have to comment on how poor the latter was. It was a very watered down version of any yoga workout, not helped by the grating personality of the so called leader. On Monday it was weights day at bootcamp so […]

Anyway, we did some more weights and balance which is getting easier as time passes, at least for […]

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 […]

Bootcamp Weights and Stability Plus Future Rumblings

Tags: , ,

I had made up a nice kettlebell workout for tonight but since the one person I had designed the workout for didn’t show we ended up modifying an old weights session with stability balls instead. It was based on this workout with some minor changes which I can’t really recall to be honest. It was a shoulder […]
