Workout Wednesday: Bootycamp

large_uncle-sam

The first ever bootcamp class I ever took was at KBX Gym in Alpharetta, GA about 3 years ago. I quickly learned that bootcamp was a much do-able version of CrossFit (more about that later) and could be done anywhere. Although I enjoyed it, I hurt my back using kettle bells and decided to quit- but form is key. After feeling super sad that I could not continue with bootcamp anymore, I decided to research some of the best bootcamp routines I could do on my own at home now that I had gotten the forms and moves down. Don’t get me wrong- I most definitely missed the coaches yelling in my face and the motivation you got in a class. I think bootcamp is great for anyone who wants to lose weight, tone-up & is already in relatively okay fitness condition. I definitely lost inches and felt extremely in-shape. Here are a few routines you can do at home or while you are on the go:

And of course, confidence gear (It always motivates you to workout):
