Just completed week 1 of Best Body Bootcamp. It’s back! For 8 weeks we have a goal to workout at least 5 times a week and then set two personal goals each week. My two personal goals for last week were to drink at least 10 cups of water and be in bed no later than 11 PM.
As a personal training client of Tina’s, I have a personalized plan so I’m not doing the same workouts that the others are doing but from what I hear they are loving it. And they are all such an inspiration!
This weeks workouts were really good. I’m getting back into the groove and it feels good.
Here they are…
*Strength/Weights/Abs Workout A
Time: 26 min.
Calories burned: 308
Today my workout plan had me doing 4 sets but I could only get through 3 of them. Still a great workout and I was sweating my butt off.
Tuesday- Day off
*Spinning (Interval B workout)
Time: 35 min.
Calories burned: 474
*Strength/Weights (Workout B)
Time: 24 min.
Calories burned: 199
I did all 4 sets but I had to use smaller size weights for the last set. My arms were burning but my shoulder started to hurt so I knew better than to push through that. Proud of myself for finishing and not quitting on set 3.
*Treadmill (Interval A workout)
Time: 20 min.
Calories burned: 265
*Functional Training workout
Time: 20 min.
Calories burned: 238
Time: 10 min.
Calories burned: 164
Sunday- Day off
Today I didn’t do a formal workout but boy did I burn some calories cleaning the house!
Loving me some Best Body Bootcamp! Are you participating too?
This coming week is going to be up in the air as I’ll be traveling but it is my goal to make it 5 days. I’ll do M-W before I leave and then get some quick workouts in at the hotel.
I’m thinking of printing out some HIIT workouts to do (from my fitness inspiration Pinterest page) and hopping in the pool too. We’ll see how it all plays out.
Last time, I made it a point to walk the stairs but my knees paid for it dearly so I don’t foresee that I’ll be doing that again. I might even just do workouts in the room instead of the hotel gym, who knows.
My favorite workout from last week was the spinning interval workout.
What was your favorite workout?
The key is planning ahead and doing what you can before you leave. I know you will do GREAT! And way to go on the 4th set. That extra set always seems like so much more, huh?
Thank you! Yes, planning ahead is going to be good for me. And today in Workout A, I was having a talk in my head about whether to do the 4th set and almost talked myself right out of it but instead, I lightened the weight load and went forth to conquer it. LOL That extra set is crazy!

Great job with doing the last set! I’m doing bootcamp, and I’ll be traveling in three weeks for a week of it, so I’m looking forward to seeing what you do. I’ll probably bring my resistance bands along.
Thanks for the support! Resistance bands are a great idea.
I’m doing the bootcamp too! My favorite workout was the upper body (Workout A). I really felt the burn with those supersets. I have to be really efficient with my workouts so I often work in cardio circuits in with my strength training – my heart rate really got up with the supersets and high intensity cardio I threw in their too! I hope you have great workouts again this week!
Sounds like you had a great week too! And good way to be efficient. I might try adding some cardio bursts to my strength/weights days. Thanks!
