Bootcamp this week was odd from my perspective, for workload reasons I had shortened the workout and although I had a nagging feeling it would be too short I left it as it was. Turns out my instinct was correct and we had to double up some of the parts to make sure the kids had […]

R9D50 – Bootcamp 2.11.1 Maybe I’m Imagining Things (3 things)

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

So part way during the bootcamp class I became aware that I was struggling a little more than I think I should be. In my exhausted state I figured it was because of my lax approach the last few weeks (I only managed 3 workouts last week) and that my conditioning was starting to suffer. […]

Tags: , ,

Balance and coordination day at bootcamp. Something that takes a lot longer than strength to develop.

R9D39/40 – X2 Shoulders + Arms Plus Bootcamp 2.8.1 (Cardio)

This was my second time doing the shoulders and arms workout and I have to admit I am disappointed that the arms workout doesn’t include any dips.
