Fit & Fab Boot Camp Workout

Fit and Fab Boot Camp Workout Erin's Life Bites

Happy Wednesday! I always think of Wednesday as the ‘springboard’ day of the week, because doesn’t it feel like the second it passes Sunday is here already? I dunno, maybe that’s just me, but lately, life is just going by so quickly.

I was sick for about six weeks, and during that time I couldn’t workout much, and it was making me so down in the dumps. I have such a hard time when I think back to the long periods in my life when I didn’t exercise regularly (even just moving my arms!) — no wonder I turned to other things to try and make myself feel human.

It is always so humbling when I’m getting back into the swing of exercising after many weeks of not having the ability to do so. I think of this whenever I think of people getting started with fitness — maybe for the first time in their life. Exercise doesn’t have to be complicated — in fact, it isn’t — the best advice I can ever give about getting into shape or coming out of a fitness ‘slump’ is to find something you like and take it one workout at a time.

I like to recondition myself by circuit and boot camp workouts. I love the endorphin rush I get after I’ve kicked ass for 45-60 minutes of challenging my body to move and build strength. It’s such a great rush.

So, check out this fit & fab boot camp workout I put together to incorporate into my schedule this week. Time may be flying by IRL but it absolutely will during this fast-paced set of circuits. You can even do this workout outside if you bring along a pair of dumbbells when you hit the park. Save and share this on Pinterest and give it a try!

Let me know if you try it or what your favourite workouts for getting back on track are! And if you’re interested in some great HIIT workouts, check out this article over at Buffedd.com for some more inspiration!

30-Minute Functional Boot Camp Workout

I love functional fitness workouts.

What is functional fitness you might be asking?

Functional exercises are moves which aim to allow for the body to adapt to daily activities with proper form to prevent injuries while building strength, improving strength and coordination.

Even if you think that utilising workouts designed to enhance functional strength and agility are not going to help you reach your goals, you might want to re-think it.   According to the American Chiropractic Association, low back pain is the leading cause of disability worldwide and is also the number one reason for calling out of work as well as the second reason for doctors visits.

One of the best ways to prevent back (and shoulder and neck) pain is to engage and strengthen the muscles throughout the body.  And one of the best ways to work on building stamina and flexibility is to engage in workouts that use functional exercises to ensure that even those of us who sit at a desk for most of the day can do so with proper posture.

As you continue to read this blog, you will discover that I am a massive fan of boot camp and circuit training styles of workouts.  Even as a fitness professional, I like to get through my workouts and put them behind me so that I can move on with my day.  Boot camp workouts are a great way to keep things fresh, exciting and challenging all while getting in a fabulous workout without spending hours on a machine or at the gym in general.

Give this functional workout a try the next time you’re at the gym or want to fit in a quick and effective workout on your home treadmill.  I have even done this workout at the park using wrist weights.
