Commentary: While the last few days of Spring linger around, head outside and enjoy this lovely weather! You Texans know that our summer heat is NO JOKE . 110 degrees outside = indoor treadmill running for us.
My lil’ sister is home from college – yay! This she week she wanted to go to the gym, but as a typical poor college student, couldn’t afford a membership (and I’m not spottin’ her any $$$). Instead, I taught her how to make her own boot camp. This way, she can work out anytime she wants at a local park or track . This evening, I did the boot camp with her and her friend, Tasia. They really enjoyed it so I figured I share my “formula” with you guys.
To get started, you will need:
- 2 light/medium hand weights (1-10 pounds each for ladies; 5-20 pounds each for gents)
- Yoga Mat or large towel
- At least 100 yards of flat land and/or 1 standard running track (400 meters around)
Brit’s Boot Camp Formula:
+ 2 Cardio circuits (3-4 cardio exercises in each)
+4 Resistance circuits (4 strength and toning exercises in each)
+ “Booty Kickin” Finale (~10 minutes anaerobic cardio = sucking air!)
= 100% effective FREE personal boot camp
Here’s the complete boot camp that we did today. Print and save or create your own – enjoy!
Here are some pics of us doing the exercises in case you are unfamiliar with some of them :)
