Out of Town, No Equipment Outdoor Bootcamp + Travel Update

As I mentioned in my prior post, I was out of commission from working out for almost a week.  I was forced to take time off because I was sick.  I was also under doctor’s orders not to go from couch potato back to my high intensity pace without a transition period.  Perfect.  We were headed out of town anyways to visit my husband’s parents in a rural town outside of Albany, NY.photo 4-68

Whenever I go out of town, I do research on local gyms.  There isn’t much in the town that my husband grew up in, so unfortunately, I was limited to two large generic gyms that were overpriced for a daily visit.  Fine.  The roads are less traveled, so I figured I would take advantage of using the short part of a cul-de-sac to do running intervals mixed with a bootcamp.  Total mileage came in right at two miles, just a tick under 35 minutes.

  • 5 Pushups
  • Run to Stop sign
  • 10 Pushups
  • Run back to start
  • 15 pushups
  • Run to Stop sign
  • 20 pushups
  • Run back to start

After the last set of pushups, from the start, follow the same 5-10-15-20 sequence above with the exercises listed below, sequentially:

  • Lunge Step backs (5-10-15-20 each leg, 10-20-30-40 TOTAL)
  • Squats
  • Shoulder Taps (5-10-15-20 each shoulder, 10-20-30-40 TOTAL) – in a plank touch your opposite shoulder.  Keep hips square.
  • Pushups
  • Curtsy Lunge (5-10-15-20 each leg, 10-20-30-40 TOTAL)
  • Sumo Squats
  • Side Plank Hip Lift (5-10-15-20 each side, 10-20-30-40 TOTAL)

The runs should be moderate. Since I was trying not to push too hard, I jogged.  It is your choice.  Either way, your heart rate will get elevated and you will hit your entire body!
