Bootcamp Bodyweight Abs With Balls

Once again the abs workout went over time, I think it is the bar work that takes so long, not necessarily the chinups because I know they all cheat and only do a couple but rather the leg raises because it’s just a long slow exercise.

This is a good class, but 2 days later I really feel the rotation work we did in my mid back. My abs are fine, but I think doing the shelf stackers with an already sore back was not the smartest thing to do. It also means that whatever I do today is going to hurt!

This week I also got some disappointing news that one of my girls is no longer going to be training with me. I know this is the peril of working with kids this age, they all move along sooner rather than later but it never softens the blow of losing an athlete that you have been really working well with. It’s going to be tough moving on without her, but all I can do is wish her the very best and hope that she remembers her training time with happy memories and the motivation to keep herself active.
