Bootcamp 1/29/10-Anaerobic Circuit (Fat Burn)

I used a good Crossfit workout content for today’s class.
First we started out with a good dynamic warm up.
Then we were ready for this;
5 rounds of 4 exercises, completed as quickly as possible- 10 physioball pushups, 40 yard Prowler sprint (115 or 160 lbs), 200 yard multidirectional sprint, and 10 deadlifts (guys used barbells withe either 135 or 185, the girls used dumbbells).

This was the first class I jumped in on in a long time, due to my shoulder problems.
It was good to be back.
Christa was our first woman finished in 14 minutes (that’s …

My Opinion about “The Biggest Loser”

That is simply a circular & challenging format for exercise, whether for 1 person, or a group.

Here’s how it works- there are 6 cones, about 7 yards apart, in a circle around our strength machines (although we only used bodyweight & dumbbell exercises).
For example, in our first circuit, you perform 10 pushups at the first cone, then there’s a linking exercise (like walking lunges)

“Imagine you are 16 years old…”

…and your parents give you your first car.
They also give you simple instructions.
There is one small hitch, you only get one car.
You can never get another.
Never.
No trade ins, no trade ups.
Nothing.

Ask yourself how would you maintain that car?
My guess is you would be meticulous;
frequent oil changes, proper fuel, etc.
Now imagine if your parents also told you that none of the replacement parts for this car would ever work as well as the original parts.
Not only that, the replacement parts would be expensive to install and cause you to have …
