Week 1 of Bikini Body Bootcamp

I'm frustrated right now. I had this whole beautifully written post all done up for you about my first week doing the Bikini Body Boot camp and as I hit submit, my computer crashed and erased it all. FAIL!!

Let me see if I can recap a bit (mind you this won't be as amazing as my original post- now lost forever!).

Week 1 was the 10 Minute Bootcamp Workout by Jeanette Jenkins

I was very sore going into this because I had spent the day before out doing a complete overhaul on my garden (removing stumps, weeding, wheeling rocks, etc). I refuse to kneel when I garden so I always end up in a long-standing squat or just flat out bending over- probably not the smartest, but it works for me.

Anyway, it was only a 10 minute workout, so I decided to give it a shot before I went to work. It may have only been 10 minutes, but boy did I work up a sweat! Love it! The workout consists of 5 moves:

1. Burpee Push Shuffle (this was a challenging one to start off with, especially after having just woken up)
2. Squat Leg Lift Medial Delt
3. Front Kick Two Hand Touch (this was my favorite!!)
4. Back Row Fly with Booty Tap
5. Grand Plie with Overhead Extension (this was my second favorite)

The exercises vary with how many reps you do of each- some are 10, some are 25, so on and so forth.
But, as I said before, I was definitely mopping up some sweat with this routine, and I really like that. I may add this in as one of my cross training days. Who doesn't love a quick fat-blasting, toning session?
Anyway, the link above has the video you can follow along with to do the workout. I am also going to post links to all the workouts on a separate page on my blog.
In the meantime, give this boot camp session a try and feel free to leave me a comment with which exercise was your favorite!

Starting with those burpees would have worn me out. I will give the workout a try tomorrow!

There are few things in life I dislike more than burpees. Way to go girl!

Woot! Great job girlie. Some of these exercises I have never heard of...sounds like a good time. I like squat jumps, karaokes, mountain climbers, and bur-pees!
