Bootcamp Recap Week 1

Today finished out the first week of Bootcamp, and I just have to say, I LOVE IT! It has really pushed me and challenged me and I can’t wait to for more.

Even though, we’re only finished with one week, it has sparked some many new workout ideas for the future, which I am SO excited about.

This is actually the first time I’ve ever worked out this much in one week. I took yesterday and today as rest days so I could get somethings done around the house.

Monday began with A HIIT workout and Workout A, which was Upper Body. My arms were so sore in the most amazing way possible!

Tuesday consisted of 20 min of cardio followed by Workout B, Lower Body. I consider my lower body to be much stronger than my upper body, but this workout made me second guess myself. LOL!

Wednesday was Intervals and Core. I found a new love in Intervals.

Thursday was Workout C (Total Body) and 20 minutes of cardio. I upped my cardio time so I could fit in a C25K workout. I set a OR for pace, time and distance. It was fabulous! If there weren’t so many people at the gym, I might have actually jumped up and down with excitement.

Friday finished off Week 1 with a final Intervals and Core Workout, that I struggled with. It was the same as Wednesday but after such great workouts the rest of the week, my body was tired. lol.

I learned a lot this first week:

  • exercises I thought were simple turned out to be some of the most challenging
  • I am capable of so much more than I ever gave myself credit for
  • On the opposite end, I do still have a long way to go
  • The variety of exercises I was shown this week has shown me how to work each part of the body separately or together.
I am so ready for tomorrow and to to kick off Week 2.

    Workout A was tougher around the second time for me…I expected to do more reps to fatigue but it was the opposite! Give credit where credit is due…you're doing a great job!

    Thank you! I did better this week with Workout A but I'm not sore like I was last week so now I'm wondering if that is normal, or if I should have stayed with the heavier weight. Maybe I made it too easy on myself. LOL!

    I have to say the Sit and Stands from Workout B kill me. I'm awful at those
