Your 21st Boot Camp Workout Is Here

Welcome to week twenty-one of my Boot Camp series of workouts designed to get you even stronger and more fit. Remember to work at your own pace, as these workouts require that you have a strong fitness foundation. If you are new to working out please see my previous blogs to get my 12 week basic functional body-weight training program.

This week's workout is called "Animality". This is a great workout that utilizes functional animal movements, then ends with a few intense cardio kickboxing combinations.

There's no equipment for this workout, but don't be fooled this is an advanced routine. Members, if you want help with this routine let me know and I can do a live-online online workout with you and your partner.
