This is another winner of a workout created by Rubin Allen for our bootcamp workout competition. I was initially concerned that clients would find this workout repetitive however it ended up being a favourite! Try it out if you haven’t already, see what you think.

Goals: Muscular Endurance
Time: 60 minutes
Start with mobilising the joints with shoulder shrugs, arms across the body, above the head then step back then jogging round a square get them doing a sports specific warm up with breast stroke, front crawl, back stroke, passing the imaginary rugby ball to the sides, archery, ice skaters, boxing to the front, above and to the sides, side stepping etc
If it’s a new group blow a whistle and have every one sprint in for a handshake and back then dynamic stretching.
1ST DRILL (4 mins)
Place 2 sets of cones 12 metres away from each other. Have the campers line up at the starting point then explain as soon as they start, the clock is ticking they must run out perform 5 squat thrusts and then run back and lie down on their fronts and on every 25th second they repeat.
Carry this on for 4 minutes. Very challenging.

Have the campers form a circle. Have everyone perform a hand walk out apart from one member who performs 5 burpees then sprints around the outside of the circle and back into position then the next camper goes and so on.
Have the campers pair up and perform a side plank opposite each other whilst interlocking their fingers. Have them push against each other with their hands for a minute each side.
