Weekend Workouts

Mai decided to run in a 5k at Thanksgiving, so we headed out for a trail run/training run yesterday at Mount Talbert in the Clackamas area.

Today we decided to start doing more bootcamp style workouts. To be honest, if I want to teach bootcamp classes I really need to get into better cardiovascular shape for these types of exercises. This is not your endurance type of workout that I'm used to.

I decided to try a workout Bobbi posted last week and it was 20 minutes of awesome torture that you can do at home with really only one set of dumbbells needed. We used our Bosu ball for the pushups, but you could just use the floor if you don't have a bench or step. We also warmed up with stretching, some high steps and jumping rope.

1. Shuffle lunge side to side x 1 minute
2. Pushups on a bench x 1 minute
3. Jump Squats x 1 minute
4. Side lunge with a lateral raise x 1 minute
5. Burpees! x 1 minute
Repeat through 4 times.

if you dare, take 20 minutes to do this workout some time this week and come back and tell me what you thought of it.

No workout done just want to tell you State of Wonder is worth reading IMO for sure.
