I’m Going to BOOTCAMP!
I hope everyone had an amazing weekend and enjoyed themselves. I sure did. On saturday I went to Warped tour 2012 (that will be a separate post) and Sunday started with a great breakfast.
Then after enjoying every last bite I went biking in Manhattan with my dad. We did 30 wonderful miles around Manhattan and at one point even ran into a street fair while looking for a place to have lunch. It is so nice to bike around Manhattan. We went on the West Side Highway again, all the way to under the GW Bridge.
We wound up going to the lower east side for lunch. We bike the west side but we are east side people. It’s gives us more of a homey feeling. I actually want to live in the east side when I am out on my own. I’m bracing myself now for small apartments lol. This was our lunch:
Anyway to get on with the title of the post- I’m going to boot camp! Tina’s boot camp that is.
I have seen other blogger do Tina’s other round of BootCamp and I said next time she does it I’m signing up. I’m excited to do it. I want a change in my workouts, strength training really since I love most of my cardio activities. I do plan on adapting it to fit my needs. That is a thing a like about this program. You can adapt it to fit your needs. I am going to show you guys how I incorporate Tina’s schedule to fit my needs.
This is the schedule for the actual boot camp:
|Workout A + 20 min 60/60 HIIT||Workout B + 20 min steady state||Intervals + Core||Workout C + 20 min steady state||Intervals + Core||Optional Cardio of Choice||Off|
I have two schedules planned because I have a doctors appointment on Tuesday and I do not know if I will have time for a workout that day.
|Workout A + Steady State of biking. Most likely about an hour.||Workout B + 20 min 60/60 HIIT||kickboxing + Core||Kickboxing + Core||Workout C + 20 min steady state||Off or Hot Yoga. Most likely doing Hot Yoga. It helps stretch my muscles out||Optional Cardio of Choice.|
Long Bike ride in Manhattan. I am going to with my dad again.
Choice B :
|Workout A + Steady State of biking. Most likely about an hour.||Off||kickboxing + Core||Kickboxing + Core||Workout B + 20 min (biking)||Optional Cardio of Choice (Hot Yoga)||Long Bike ride in Manhattan. I am going to with my dad again. + Workout C + 20 min steady state (maybe|
I figured the Kickboxing was like intervals since we really do things like that anyway. We do things like go punch a row of bags for minute or a routine like punch, punch, right round house kick, left round house kick. Plus I just really enjoy kickboxing. Nothing makes me feel as good. As you see I picked Biking as my cardio choice because I love it so i rather do that. The only time I will not bike is if it rains. Also if it should ran on one of my cardio days then I am going to go to the gym then do either 20 60/60 HIIT or 20 min steady state. I do want to do one HIIT but It will see on the weather and how I am feeling. Like I have it for Sunday in Choice B but I might do it Friday or Saturday and no Yoga. Basically things are opened to change, especially in Choice B.
I am really hoping that I can do Choice A (obviously since it is my first choice) because it is a little better planned out and goes all together. It is just my doctors appointment on Tuesday. It is at 8 Pm, and I cannot work out 3 hours before or eat because I am having a test done and I am working until 5 so I cannot get a workout in during the day. I am thinking maybe do something Tuesday morning but that would mean getting up like 5 and I don’t know if I want to do that. So I am going to have to play it by ear. I won’t mind working out 9 at night to much but I would rather not, especially since I cannot eat all that time. I most likely will come home and eat something. I am on a list for something earlier in the day and I am hoping that I get moved up. Ideally 6 would be great but I will take 5 ( I would leave work 30 min early) 5:30 6, 6:30 even 7. I figure every little bit helps. Oh well I guess it is going to be something I have to play by ear.
As for the workouts I will not post them exactly because I do not want to post Tina’s actual workouts here but I will post every week with my schedule and how I did the previous week so I can give you all an update. The only time I won’t be posting is when I am on vacation, August 2nd-August10th but I will be doing the workouts. I have gym access just not Internet access since I am going on a cruise. Internet is available but at those prices I consider it not available!
Another Great thing I really like about Tina’s BootCamp is that each week you set two goals to do each day. You can change them every week or keep them the same. I haven’t decided how long I will keep each goal but for now my two goals are:
Goal 1: Write 2 positive thoughts about myself
Goal 2: Take 20 minutes at night to decompress.
These two goals are really important for me. I do not relax enough and I need to work on being more positive with myself. I am really looking forward to this bootcamp.
I look forward to sharing my bootcamp journey with you all.
Until Next Time- Ashley
Anyone else doing bootcamp or have done it in the past?
