Week 6=Intense Workouts

We’re back to Monday & that means back to back workouts. Zumba was high cardio tonight that included a lot of jumping jacks. My legs were still tired & a little sore from yesterday’s run but I didn’t hold back.

Workout Breakdown:

  • 55 minutes
  • 122 avg bpm
  • 402 calories burned
  • 75% fat burn

Boot Camp gets more intense every Monday it seems. There were six stations with 4 people to a station. We had to switch between two different exercises for a total of 8 rounds. 20 seconds of work with 10 seconds of rest.

Station 1:

  • Underhand pull ups
  • Agility

Station 2 (done at the TRX Straps):

  • SL Pistol Squats
  • Jump Squats

Station 3 (done on a step):

  • Box Jumps
  • Decline Pushups

Station 4 (done with a Bosu):

  • Rock/Rock Push-ups
  • Burpees

Station 5 (using 2 dishcloths):

  • Mountain Climbers
  • Plank & slide one hand straight out

Station 6 (using a small cone):

  • Soccer Kicks
  • Catch & Release (hold the cone between your feet, extend legs up and catch with your hands and then extend arms up and down to put back between your feet)

All of these were killer exercises and when I finished at Station 6 I was tired, HOWEVER we weren’t done. We had a finisher tonight. Since the Super Bowl was last night our finisher was the following:

34-28

P-Push ups

A-Around the World (I used a 5 lb. weight)

T-Tuck Jumps

R-Russian Twists

I-In & Outs

O-Overhead Lunges

T-Triceps Dips

S-Sit ups

Complete 34 of each exercise & then you were done. My trainer helped motivate us further by playing the Monday Night Football theme, Lose Yourself, & In the Air Tonight. <- further proof that this song is a great pick to motivate you to push yourself through your workout or run. Week 6 started on a high note even though my entire body is sore tonight.

Workout Breakdown:

  • 43 minutes
  • 129 avg bpm
  • 262 calories burned
  • 52% fat burn
