How about another boot camp workout first to kick start your weekend?
In the boot camp class I’m teaching at the gym right now, Wednesday’s theme was obstacles. (Apparently spelling is one of my obstacles, because it just took me FOUR tries to spell obstacles there. Oy.) But before we get into the obstacle workout, let’s talk life obstacles. They come in many shapes and forms and each come with a certain impact to our lives. However, WE are the only ones who can determine the impact that they play.
We are also the only ones that can determine the role these obstacles play in our life. Basically, we have a couple options for obstacles: overlook them or overcome them – and both options are fine for different situations. Shane and I ran into an obstacle that we really don’t have power of changing it right now. So, we’re focusing on some other things in life right now. Then there’s also time to kick those obstacles right in the you-know-where and overcome them. Tell them to GET OUTTA MY WAY!
This workout is the latter of the two options
This workout requires some kind of sturdy surface. I’m using a bench, but you can use a sturdy chair, a step, stairs, a BOSU – any raised, sturdy (preferable flat) surface will do. Like Monday’s workout, this boot camp workout is only 30 minutes long, but I promise that’s all you’ll need!

I also recently just (finally) updated my “workouts” tab. So if you liked this workout, check out the others! For more workouts, you can check out a complete compilation of my cardio workouts <—treadmill, plyo, bodyweight, etc, circuit workouts, and strength workouts! Of course, you can also subscribe for the latest and greatest workouts posted I’m not always on the ball on moving the workouts I post to their respective categories. Ahem.
Want to know what I’ve been loving to eat right after my afternoon “easier” cardio sessions? BARS! Including two of my new most favoritest bar evers!
Designer Whey Protein PB Crunch and NuGo Chocolate Pretzel with sea salt. My bar problem? I found these bars in the bottom of one of my “bar bags” <—anyone else have those? And found out I love them! I went out to Kroger and the Vitamon Shoppe to buy out the store, with no success, sadly. Although their store locators on the websites said they carried them, the stores must just not be big enough in my town. But I Must. find them. Their SO GOOD. I think it has to do with the real dark chocolate coating – and the sea salt for the NuGo – that makes them especially delicious. Anyone know where I can find them? Of course I discovered I loved them after I went to WF last weekend, so if you say Whole Foods, unless you plan on shipping it me (yes?) as a care package then I don’t wanna hear it.
I’ll probably resort to ordering them, but I kinda want them rightnowthissecond. For now I’ll just grab my Cherry Pie larabar and head out to train some clients
Happy Friday, everyone! Any fun plans? I have to work tomorrow, but will be going out on the town with some girlfriends tonight! Should be fuuun. Before that excitement, though, I have an appointment this morning that I’m a little nervous about. Send me some good vibes?
Bar lovers: what bar are you currently lovin’ on?
