Booyah Bootcamp!

Many of you have read my post about the Booyah Jar last week and were wondering how my fitness journey was going on vacation. Well, I let my 10 month old nephew pick my exercises today, and was rewarded with a great core workout!! Here is what my nephew picked:

I nominated my sister to be my official B & B blog photographer in order to capture Booyah Bootcamp in action!

Side Plank, each side for 30 seconds.

V-Ups – I added a twist to kick it up a notch 😉

Reverse burpees – if you don’t know what they are, they are basically a burpee with the normal jump, and then you tuck into a ball and roll backwards (instead of a push-up). They are toughhh but are a great core workout! And kind of fun (in a twisted way). 😛

Weeeeee!!! Frog Jumps – one of my favorite ways to BLAST my legs. 😀

Woooohooo, mid-launch on the frog jumps!

Let me tell you – it ain’t bad doing Booyah Bootcamp by the pool in Florida (even though it’s overcast and humid today, it’s 75F!! I’ll take it because I know I won’t be wearing shorts and tank in Boston for a long time!). After going through the exercises three times with a rest in between (prob should have done 4 but I was really just feeling 3 – I think I can get a special vaca dispensation), I went for a quick 3.3 mile run on the beach for cardio and called it a day. Now I’m ready to shop with my mom, sister and nephew while we get a few thunderstorms rolling through this afternoon. I hope you all are having wonderful days today!! Sending warmth your way (there isn’t much for sunshine at the moment).

With warmth,
L 😀

  1. I’m 53, with a bad lower back. I’m small-built and quite slender. I do squats every day, but need an exercise to build up my core muscles, but not hurt my back. Any advice?
