Coach and be coached...

Still doing the boot camp... and I'm still loving it so far, even the sore-almost-every-day element doesn't seem so bad anymore. It's a good feeling.

SO... my friend Wendy wanted in on the boot camp action, but she couldn't participate because it's through my work and it's an "employees only" type situation, so what's a girl to do?

 I am writing down all the exercises I do at lunch time boot camp and do a 2nd boot camp evening workout on Tuesdays and Thursdays. 

Yup, that's right. DOUBLE boot camp.

The 2nd workout is almost harder because I am trying my very hardest to show her how to do the exercises properly, which makes them harder... But it feels great, and I really think the 2nd workout twice a week is amplifying my results. I feel like I am shrinking a bit quicker, I'm firming up in more areas.... I'm getting fit.... just a teensy bit faster.

And I like that.

So I am going to keep putting in the work, and hopefully start to see major results.

Last night's workout:

Warm up jog - about 1/4 mile.

Running sequence around 5 cones, sprinting.
(3 minute, 2 repetitions)

Chariot Pulls {where you run with a rope around your waist
and your partner pulls back on the rope and runs with you
(3 minutes, 2 repetitions)

Regular squats, with workout band - lifting band with arms as you come up from squat
(1 minute, 3 repetitions)

Workout band curls - Standing on band while doing curls with band
(1 minute, 3 repetitions)

Rock climbers (aka: evil workout from hell) - plank position while moving your feet up and down in a running-like movement. HARD STUFF
(1 minute, 3 repetitions)

Stretching and some yoga loveliness.

It sounds much easier than it really is... this stuff is rough, I tell you.

but I love it.
