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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

10.12-14 The Two Extremes

Tags: , , ,

I think due to my preference to take the day after bootcamp as a rest day I am going to have to take Wednesday and Friday as rest days. Unfortunately that means I will be working out Saturday – Tuesday without a break. It sounds brutal but unless I can get over my hangup about the day after Bootcamp […]

10.4/5 – Wrench In The Works

Tags: ,

10.4 – Rest (sick) 10.5 – RKC at work (scheduled as WOD at gym) 234.4 21.1% I am not sure what it was, but the last couple of days my stomach hasn’t been right. For that reason I took the day after Bootcamp as a rest day and then in preparation for not being able […]

R9D53/4 – Bootcamp 2.12.1 Weights and RKC

Tags: , ,

*EDIT: Now paleo is curing cancer… Go cavemen!   I finally stuck to my guns on Tuesday and did an RKC workout at work even after Bootcamp Monday. The RKC that I do at work is a little different because there is no pullup bar but it goes something like this: Warmup: 3x 10 pumps […]

R9D29 – Work Out At Work

Tags: , , , ,

Today our cafeteria at THE HOSPITAL decided they would offer potato chips (freshly fried) as the “vegetable” with their entree. Sometimes I just have to shake my head. It’s almost as bad as Planet Fitness offering their members pizza, bagels and tootsie rolls. At the far end of the spectrum I decided I would go […]

R9D15 – Many Happy Russian Returns

Tags: ,

I took the opportunity to work out during lunch today in our work “getaway” room. I had my 45lb KB with me and as I have said many times in the past, that’s all you need for a great workout. It went like this (since I didn’t have a pullup bar): Pumps, halos and squats […]
