Below is a list of commonly asked questions about the Bootcamp.I'm getting too many team email notifications. Where can I change my team email preferences?
Go to your team preferences page: www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_my_team
s.asp and uncheck the notification boxes that you don't want to receive.
Where do I find the videos and other info about what I'm supposed to be doing?
On the main team page for the Bootcamp, there is a box for Challenge Details. There will be a link for each week as you reach them. You can click on the link to view the details for your current week, including the videos (which are repeated each week for the whole Bootcamp).
How do I add the videos to my tracker?
On each video page there is a button to "Track Calories Burned" that is listed just below the video -- click on that button. This will add the workout to your tracker and also estimate your calories burned.
I didn't receive my email telling me what to do. Where can I see that information?
Go to the main team page and scroll down to the Challenge Details box, then click on the Week 1 link. That page has the same info that is included in the emails. Once you have met the time requirement for the bootcamp, the week 2 link will be available, and the same for weeks 3 and 4.
How can I restart Bootcamp?
To fully start over, you can leave the team (by scrolling down the team page and clicking the Leave This Team button), then rejoin the team. Otherwise, you can just start over with week 1.
I don't have dumbbells, what can I do?
Dumbbells are optional, but if you don't have them, you can use other objects like water bottles or canned food to give you a little extra weight to lift. Otherwise, you can do the videos without added weight. Most of the videos do use dumbbells, but again, that is optional.
Is it okay to modify some of the exercises?
Yes! If you have an injury or any other reason for not being able to do certain exercises in the videos, please make modifications as needed. If a certain video needs to be modified for you too much, you can always select another video from the Fitness section of the Healthy Lifestyle tab. If it is a strength training video though, please make sure you are replacing it with the same muscle group (ex: upper body replaced with upper body).
I missed a week (or a few days) from the challenge due to illness/injury. Should I pick up where I missed or start all over?
You can pick up where you left off OR you may start over. Whichever you prefer is fine.If you have other questions, please post them in the Question Thread
