One More Christmas Bootcamp Workout

Ok, I know I said I was done with Christmas workouts but I just received this one in my inbox and had to share!

This workout operates like a board games (just like the Monopoly workout) so there is a bit of set up. However, I think your clients will appreciate and enjoy the effort.

Thanks to Sharon Corrigan from Glowing Results for this workout. Check out their site if you are interested in using schools and community centers to run your bootcamps.

Two Super Challenging Drills For Your Bootcamps

Here are two CrossFit style workouts that can be scaled and used in your bootcamp as either fitness tests or finishers.

The second one is pretty tough and should just be reserved just for your fittest groups or heavily scaled. Thanks to Fernando Pabon for the drills.

One: Body Rock

Do five rounds of the following for time:

3×1 – (every 3rd rep = 1)

  • 10 3×1 Mountain Climbers
  • 10 3×1 Body Squat Jump (3rd squat completed with jump squat – squat, squat, squat, jump)
  • 5 3×1 Sprawls (start in the push-up thrust legs forward to shoulder width recover in push-up)
Clients should aim to complete this workout under 15 minutes. Your fittest clients should aim for 8 minutes.

Two: Top Of The Day

21-15-9 (21 reps the first round, 15 reps the second round and 9 reps in the third and final round)

  • Burpees
  • Pull ups
  • Hand stand push ups
  • 200 meter run after each round (just once each round)

(1 lap around your park for distance check)

Do this with max out put. Record time. Do workout next week and compare time.
