Bootcamp moves you can do at home
February 22, 2016
According to the co-founder of Fit Factory Fitness, Sgt. Tony Austin, bootcamp workouts are beneficial because of their mixture of cardio and strength exercises.
Below is a bootcamp circuit you can do in the comfort of your own home. Do each station for 45 seconds, followed by a 15-20 second break between each.
Clear enough space in your home to be able to skip rope and jump rope for 45s.
2. MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS
Get into a plank position with your hands on the ground beneath you. Lift one leg up and under your stomach and switch sides. Pick up the pace with quick leg movements for 45s.
3. CHAIR DIPS
Find a chair or couch, and sit down with your hands on either side of your body. Walk your feet out and left your hips up. Slowly lower your hips using your arms and working your triceps. Continue with reps for 45s.
4. HEEL TAPS
Lay a towel down on the floor and lay down on your back with your arms out beside you. Tap each heel, alternating hands. Repeat for 45s.
5. STANDING WALKOUT PUSH-UP
Stand with your feet should-width apart. Bend down into a stretch to touch your toes and slowly walk out to a plank position. Once there, bring your body down into a push up. Walk back up and repeat for 45s.
6. PLANK WITH CIRCLE ROTATIONS
Hold a plank with one leg lifted off the ground. Move that leg in small circles for 20 seconds. Switch sides for the remaining 20s, focusing on the second leg.
