A difficult part of running bootcamps (with limited equipment and multiple clients per trainer) is coming up with workouts that build strength, and in particular, having exercises that are high enough resistance to build strength.
Make sure you don’t fall into the trap of thinking ‘more is always better’ with your programming (in terms of training volume). While most of our prospective (and current) clients could definitely do with more training, this doesn’t necessarily mean more reps and sets.
There are definite advantages to high rep training, such as building muscular endurance, but doing it every session can actually hinder the results that our clients are after – namely fat loss.
