Since the launch of the first Bootcamp Workout Ideas ebook, Garry Robinson and I have maintained a relationship through emails and phone calls. So I was lucky enough to be one of the first readers of his new book Bootcamp Workout Ideas Volume II.
It follows a similar format to Volume I in that it is awesome.
To look at Bootcamp Workout Ideas Vol II is very easy on the eyes. Going through the book is an experience, it’s not like just reading another ebook.
If you are familiar with Volume I you will find customary PTI tips in the side bars to help explain drills and exercises as well as diagrams and tables to further demonstrate the nature of each drill.
On top of that you can also print directly from the PDF without having to copy and paste anywhere or you can view the workout easily on a tablet.
Before I get to the 50 workouts in this book I thought I would let you in on the extras you get in this book.
To start with Garry goes through the behind the scenes of how he plans and orders his bootcamp. He explains his philosophy behind how he trains his clients and even shares his method for getting them in top shape.
This is really interesting stuff that he doesn’t explain in Volume I.
After that you get 10 brand new warm ups to use with your clients. These are fun warm ups designed to get your clients ready for the tough workouts ahead.
The 50 workouts are split into six different categories. Oh and by the way, these are the 50 best workouts selected out of a pool of over 200 workouts.
Most workouts overlap into multiple categories, but separating them makes it easy if you just want to find a Boxing workout to do with your group that night.
The categories are:
- Running – 9 Workouts
- H.I.T. – 12 Workouts
- Teamwork – 10 Workouts
- Strength – 6 Workouts
- Boxing – 6 Workouts
- Circuit – 7 Workouts
Featuring workouts like Watermelon Run, Stinky Shirt, Se7en #3 and Power Circuit; there is a lot of content in there for the busy trainer.
To help you arrange all of these workouts into something useful, there is also a 13 week plan to with four new workouts for each week.
I can’t really find much at fault with the book other then most of the workouts are designed for outdoor use. This isn’t really a huge problem though as most clever trainers could modify the workouts for indoors.
Either way, if you don’t find the book useful you can always get a refund.
I am really looking forward to using some of these workouts in 2013. I think I ended up using nearly every workout from Volume I over the period of 6 months so I hope to get the same life out of this book.
There is enough variety in the ebook that you should be able to get a fair amount of use out of it no matter what equipment you have on offer and the fitness level of your clients.
Take A Look For Yourself
Garry has been kind enough a couple of the pages of his book for free (I believe this would be called an exclusive).
Kyle Wood created Bootcamp Ideas in 2010 when he was hunting around on the internet for workout ideas. He ran a successful bootcamp in Victoria, Australia and spends his spare time managing this site, adventuring (or lazying) with his wife and find new ways to make bootcamps even better.
