They love to kick your azz. And I mean that in the best way possible. They’ve developed an Extreme Boot Camp program (you’ll see me tweet with the #DoBCx hashtag) that, for the most part, uses only your body weight against you. Sound easy? Here is a sample of PART of Week One, Day One of BCX Boot Camp over at Sears FitStudio:
Step 2: The Bomb
- 20 Alternating Forward Lunges
- 20 Squats
- 10 Burpees
- 1-minute Jump Rope
- 20 Alternating Forward Lunges (Reverse in direction)
- 20 Jumping Jacks
- 10 Burpees
- 1-minute Wall-Sit
Go ahead, try it. I’ll wait. But just like Towlie says, “don’t forget to bring a towel".
I went through several days of the program, but because I have a tough time sticking to any schedule, I didn’t stay with it the whole time. I should have. At any rate, I am still a big fan of the workouts (especially since they require NO equipment!). Every so often I’ll toss one in there for a cross training day.
So when I saw a tweet last week (?) suggesting that some people give a new program a try, I printed it out and got ready to do just that. It is called “the Nooner'” because it can be done during your lunch hour, or more accurately, during your lunch half hour. Trust me, you’ll need the second half to shower. Holy. Sweat-fest. It is broken out into 3 sections: Thrash it (5 rounds), Hurry Up (1 round), and Happy Ending (5 rounds). The last one is not named accurately, IMHO. It should be called Happy that-it-is-finally Ending. Curious? Here’s the other kicker: all rounds/exercises/happymarchesthroughPurgatory are done for TIME. Yep. Against the clock. Which is kinda cool, actually. You do the workout for the first time and establish a baseline. Then you come back to it a few weeks later to see how much you’ve improved. Pretty cool, and the number comparisons are right up my alley. Alright. Here’s a peek at one of the sections. I’m not going to tell you which one it is….
100 butt kiks 25 sit ups 25 pushups 25 burpees 25 high knees
Go ahead, try it. I’ll wait. Lemme say that the whole thing kicked me to the curb. And except for the FLIPPIN BURPEES (Satan’s Revenge), I loved it. I was dripping with sweat by the middle. How long did it take me? 20:20. Yep. Here’s the link.The Nooner. Enjoy. Let me know how you do!!!!! Seriously. Give it a try. The only thing you have to lose is sweat. If you live in the Vero Beach, FL area, stop by MaxFitness and say hello to Bonnie or Steve. Tell ‘em Gene sent you!
Thanks for stopping by. #nomorebs #noexcuses
