First Saturday of the new bootcamp. Week one down. They are doing great. Swings are starting to shape up. I truly love what I do!!!
I also did an invite only “Sinister Saturday” group today. I will start doing these more often when the bootcamp is meeting, because it is fun.
This is what SINISTER SATURDAY looked like today:
After warmup and mobility everyone picked double bells for the movements. I was happy to see that everyone picked challenging bells for all the movements. That makes me happy.
the ladder went 1-5 and then start back over at 1 when done with the 5. If we would had gone back down that is a pyramid and today we were laddering…for 15 minutes
start with 1 rep of each, then 2 reps of each and so on up to 5 reps of each. Rest as much as needed, but not too much. Nobody took advantage of the rest. They kicked ass.
Then for a little break from swings the next section went like this:
20 swings 5 jumping jacks
15 swings 10 jumping jacks
10 swings 15 jumping jacks
5 swings 20 jumping jacks
Finish back to a ladder
We finished with a 1 hand swing ladder
1 hand swings laddering up to 10
SO 1 swing R then L, 2 swings R then L, 3 swings R then L and so on up to 10.
They did AMAZING!!!
Ladders are a great way to build strength, power and to progress. Not to mention a helluva metabolic workouts, as witnessed with the 1 hand swing ladders the ladies did. Ladders are hard, but so effective. A true example of pure fatigue and extreme discomfort. Here is a pic of the after effects.
My Training for Today
Two naps – that was my training for today (sorry Heidi). I am feeling extremely tired. First nap was 30 minutes and next one was 1 hour and 15 minutes. I will listen to my body and take the rest. The training can wait another day. I obviously need to take it easy. So I am going to enjoy the rest of my day and I will not feel guilty about not training today. It works for me.
