Today: Ultimate Bootcamp, Days 15 and 16

[tweetmeme source=”elizabethev” only_single=false]I can’t believe my four weeks of Ultimate Bootcamp have come to an end; the time truly flew by.  Our last two days featured great workouts by the water.

On Wednesday, Kim brought us back to the beach, where it all began.  I seemed to have misunderstood the assignment when it came to one of our first drills, monster walking, suicide-style, in the sand with resistance bands.  I quickly found myself at the back of the pack, quads burning and legs shaking.  Apparently I missed Kim’s instruction about setting the appropriate amount of resistance.

Once I caught on, it got easier.  Slightly.

Wednesday’s workout included:

  • Warm-up and cool-down runs
  • Side shuffling in the sand with a resistance tube
  • Push-ups (regular, dive bombers, staggered)
  • Squats
  • Planks
  • Mountain climbers
  • Bear crawls
  • Crab walks
We also completed a fitness test, counting the number of squats we could complete in one minute, which we compared to our results from Day 1.  I improved by six squats, but more importantly, I’m much more confident in my form.
Now if only I could figure out how to keep the sand out of my shoes.

Thursday’s workout included:

  • Incline push-ups
  • Triceps dips
  • Hills
  • Plyometrics
  • Squat thrusts
  • Lunges
  • Squats
  • Jumping jacks
  • Running

I was so excited to earn my Ultimate Bootcamp shirt after four weeks of awesome morning workouts.  I’ve loved the community and camaraderie, and look forward to signing up for another session soon.  I cannot say enough about the program, truly.  I feel stronger, faster, and fitter.  Plus, getting up before the sun?  It’s a piece of cake now.

  2. I saw a boot camp happening on the Greenway yesterday evening and thought of you. I’m glad to hear that you kicked butt during all of these sessions!

  3. Hi Carrie .. I just saw you on BT and was very impressed with the short inromfation you shared.I would really like to find out more about the 6 minute morning work-out if you could send me the 6 workout positions that you were explaining .. I would really appreciate it.Unfortunately I didn’t get them all when you were talking to Dina.I am prediabetic and I am really suppose to be exercising more with the changed diet .. but, unfortunatley, I haven’t. And I saw you this morning and saw that this would definitely be something I could put into my daily schedule and work with .. I’m not one for joining the gyms + I really can’t afford this luxury in my life, but your program is definitely a workable program.Carrie would you please send me this inromfation .. I did try to find it on your website but couldn’t find anything explaining the actualy 6 steps to the 6 Minute Workout.Thank you so much .. I look forward to hearing from you soon.Debi King
