Today’s Boot Camp Workout and Some Exciting News

We had a great boot camp workout today.  I’m really loving this new style of class I’ve come up with and so far everyone else is too…although they seem to hate it just as much as they like it!

Not only does it provide something fresh and new for everybody, but it allows me to give more personalized attention where it’s needed and help tweak form and tempo.  I do a lot more running around and it’s a ton of fun for me.

My next project now that I’m done designing this blog, re-designing my Fit Dad Says blog, and filming all those damn workouts, is to transform my boot camp system into some sort of take-home program.

I understand that ladies can’t keep coming to boot camp forever either because they don’t have the time, can’t afford it, or just get sick of me (which I’m sure never happens ) and I want to be able to give them a similar system to do from home that keeps all the same principles and workout ideals I keep in the actual boot camp class.

It will most likely be a big binder with lots of workout options, nutrition goodies, assignments similar to the ones you already receive and maybe even some DVD’s of the workouts done in a “follow-along style” (that I’m not looking forward to filming).

I’m actually trying to come up with some sort of “modular workout design” system for all my boot camps so I can write a bunch at once, then plug and play to mix things up.

Did you like the phrase “modular workout design”?  I’m working on something catchy and that’s the first thing that came to mind for this post, but it’s not “the” phrase I’ll be using.

Be sure to keep an eye out for that, and until that’s completed there’s always my Fat Loss To Go program.  10-minute workouts loaded with add-on workouts that hit the trouble spots (legs, butt, arms and abs), nutrition information, plus every workout is on video so you can see how everything should be done.  Check that out at

Good times they are ahead for all of my loyal boot campers!

What was my point with this post?  Oh yeah…today’s workout!

Today’s boot camp workout was split into 2 phases, each phase had 4 stations and each station had 2 exercises and everything was done for time.

It was a good mix of upper body, lower body and metabolic exercises, although it was mostly upper body and the exercises were paired in such a way that really amped up the intensity – no matter the skill or fitness level of who was doing it.

Lots of push-ups, did some hopping, stability ball rollouts, mountain climbers, used resistance tubing, all sorts of goodies.

One of the stations paired push-ups with DB chest press.  It might sound like an odd pairing given that they both are meant to work the chest, but the weight of the chest press and the way they’re done made for that portion to be a “recovery time” for your chest and shoulders and didn’t really work them that much.

Another station paired Stationary Lunges w/Shoulder Press and Butt Raises.  So that really kicked in the legs/butt, but the shoulders got a huge workout as well and of course, the ever popular lower abs.

Good times…good times.

I hope you have a great day and don’t forget that if you have any questions don’t hesitate to give me a call or shoot me an email.
