What Comprises a “Kickboxing Boot Camp”?

I’m feeling a bit smug.  I worked out today with John and felt as winded as I normally feel [as in “I’m going to throw up and die before the 4 minute round is over”].  After our session was over, we sat around chatting and watched a group class begin.  The four young women were in very good shape but seemed to spend a good deal of time standing around between each exercise. I asked what the class was called and was told: “Kickboxing Boot Camp”.  My response to John was that it couldn’t be correct because: [1]  the women were still breathing and [2] since when does boot camp allow you to just stand around for minutes at a time between exercises?  LOL

I shake my head sadly, however, because they all looked so young and in shape and could each probably do my workout with no issues……

Slow Start To The Week

It was a slow start to the exercise week.  I didn’t get to the gym either Monday or Tuesday although  I managed to do the 4 mile loop around the park and a strength training session at Crunch. 🙂

I used the TRX Suspension Trainer and TRX Rip Trainer so I had some support as I did squats and lunges.  I did biceps curls, push ups, and triceps exercises.  I rounded out the work out with inchworms and planks using the Bosu Ball. [Here’s a link to 6 Bosu Ball exercises by RealSimple,com]

Here is a video that walks you through a beginner’s exercise routine using the TRX.  The trainer goes through a huge number of exercises and it looks like it would be a killer routine if you did them all:

My hubby and I also got to see a New York Liberty game against the Washington Mystics. The Liberty managed to win but they play so poorly it may behoove them to lose so they get a crack at a higher draft pick next year.  At least that’s what my husband says; I tend to be far more negative about the team as a whole.

I wasn’t as successful nutritionally as I ate out several times over the past few days.  Hopefully, I can get that under control today.
