Best Body Bootcamp Week 1 is complete! I managed to squeeze in 4 workouts, which is actually better than I expected. I did hit both my goals this week though: drinking boatloads of water and cutting down on snacking after dinner. I’m aiming for 5 workouts this week – but with the ZOOMA Half Marathon on Saturday, I’m not sure if that’s going to happen (actually, I’m not sure if I will be able to get out of bed tomorrow through Friday!).
There was one workout (Workout B for those participating) that Tina created that I skipped. I actually reviewed it the night before my workout and planned to do it but in the end there were a lot of exercises that I couldn’t do comfortably — or just that I couldn’t do in my tiny workout room with 10 other people around. As fun as the SeeSaw Reach exercise sounds (see below), I don’t think I could do it without knocking 5 people over (and maybe flashing a little too much belly).
So I have learned that I need to come up with a few alternatives (which I will be featuring here on Mondays). This week it’s the Standing Ball Squeeze:
You can also get tricky and add a Squat:
This video (in case this video doesn’t show up!) shows a small ball, but I’d go with a medium sized one (TWSS?)
Let me tell you, you may feel silly, but this is a kick ass leg thigh, leg, and butt move.
Back to the Bootcamp — I did really enjoy workouts A and C and decided I love doing circuit workouts with cardio intervals almost as much as I love supersets. Who have I become???
Do you have a favorite move or a move alternative? Let me know – especially if it’s recommended for pregnant women (but it’s not like I’m going to be pregnant forever). I’d love to add it to my workouts!
