In an attempt to get fit and be healthy, I’ve decided to sign up to my very first bootcamp class. I used to have a membership to a gym but I never went. I don’t think I’m a gym kind of girl. I need to be playing sports or doing something fun. Running on a treadmill is not my cup of tea. I did some of the classes, but still wasn’t enough for me. I get bored easily at the gym and if someone isn’t watching over me while I do push ups, I will say to myself “eh, that’s enough, time to go home”. I need that extra push in order for me to push myself. The first class was a workout for the upper body. Since it was our first class, our instructor said she would be easy on us. This is what we did:
1. Warm up – consisted of sit ups, lunges, skipping with a rope (haven’t skipped since I was in elementary school, loved this)
2. We had 15 minutes do this these sets. We had to keep on going, until the time was up
- 10 lunges
- 10 push-ups
- 10 kettlebell pull over sit ups
- 20 kettlebell twists
After the 15 mins, my arms felt like jello. I don’t know how many sets I did. All I know was that my arms were done. I’m still sore! But it feels good. It will be interesting to see how well I do in this bootcamp class. My goal is to do a proper push up, like go all the way down. I’m currently doing the “lady” push ups, and not going all the way down. I will keep you updated on my progress.
It’s almost Friday!!
