Your 22nd Boot Camp Workout Is Here

Welcome to week twenty-two 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 "Medicine Ball Kickbox". This is a big workout that combines medicine ball exercises, functional body-weight movements, and then ends with a few intense cardio kickboxing techniques. You may want to try one circuit of each before increasing.

Ideally, you should have two medicine balls for this workout, one of a lighter weight and one of a heavier weight, in case some of the exercises are too easy or too hard.

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.
