Hi friends! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty amazing. I spent some time in Boston on Friday, hung out with a friend and her kids at the pool on Saturday, met up with my brother and his wife for some kayaking and paddleboarding Saturday afternoon followed by a great dinner and relaxed on Sunday with some SUP yoga, outdoor yoga and some beach time! This is what summer weekends are made of!
I mentioned recently that I finally made it to Barry’s Bootcamp for the first time and although I was nervous, I found out that it is a really encouraging place with a great atmosphere. While I’d love to be able to go there regularly, it just is too far for me to make it a weekly thing, so I decided to see if I could recreate a Barry’s style workout at home for myself. While I certainly can’t emulate the lighting and atmosphere, I can at least find some good music and get in a great workout inspired by this uber popular bootcamp class!
Remember, before starting this or any other workout, please check with your physician. Also, make sure to warm-up, cooldown and stretch and only go to your limits. I used 8-10lb weights for this workout. The Floor work should repeated 1x to make it a 10 minute interval.
Readers, floor or treadmill? What did you do this weekend? When’s the last time you did a bootcamp style class?
I’ve never taken an actual in-person “class” that was bootcamp style, but I have done several at home via DVDs. They always kick my butt, but I work harder during those types of workouts than anything else!
I’d like to say treadmill but I should probably pick the floor since I need the most help with strength/cross training. I haven’t taken a bootcamp class is a while, but try to incorporate a plyo DVD or some circuits into my workouts each week. I spent the weekend relaxing on the beach and catching up on some much needed me time : )
