Today, I doubled up strength and used the SP Fit, Firm, & Fired Up! dvd- (excellent one to add to your home inventory)
did workouts day 3 call on your core and day 2 all about arms using my 8 lbs weights.

Also did Prevention tummy trimming yoga dvd for 25 minutes then Cardio was my attempt to do Zumba express workout from the dvd set.

Have decided since completing bootcamp that doing at least one SP strength video is not an unreachable goal so continuing on.

Today, used the SP generated strength workouts and opted for the ball workout for lower body. Did all the exercises but 3 sets of 15 instead of 2 sets of 15.

I am into week 4 of bootcamp challenge almost at the end!
Today I chose to do my SP Fit,Firm, & Fired UP! dvd with Coach Nicole core workouts- day 3 Call on your core and day 6 Crunchless Core Challenge with each workout being 10 minutes long. Took on my Kathy Smith's Project YOU! yoga core/flex dvd workout for another 20 minutes so the core area is well worked today.

Today I did another one of the bootcamp videos (working the core) and then spent a good solid 30 minutes doing cardio on the Wii (I know that it's not the biggest calorie burner etc., but it does get my heart rate up and man I can feel it already in my muscles, especially the boxing!) I'm still really struggling to do cardio--I don't know why I'm having such a hard time with it. But I did it.

Thanks. It was a lot of fun, but a lot more work than I remembered it being!

Yesterday I did a 10 minute cardio video and a 10 minute strength training video; today I did 2 10 minute strength training videos and a ten minute cardio video. Not as much as I had hoped, but at least I'm back on track with the bootcamp!

Crappy weather outside so just walked the dogs then got on my elliptical for cardio today.

That's okay ZANNACHAN, you did ice skating and that counts after a 20 years break!

Today, I most definitely got my cardio in- walked dogs 1.39 miles in 18 minutes
Then grabbed my ipod and walked 5.27 miles in 77 minutes- celebrating my victory over house clutter

Even though my legs were definitely sore, I did my PREVENTION tummy trimming yoga dvd for 25 minutes (helped stretch those muscles) then did day 2 bootcamp lower body workout with dumbbells.

I am happy to claim I am on week 3 of the challenge.

Did two bootcamp videos today, despite the fact that I'm so sore from yesterday I could barely walk (my hips in particular really hurt!) Didn't get in any cardio, though I had planned to originally. Hurt too much.

I am starting week 3 of the bootcamp challenge today. For cardio I took advantage of our near 50 degree temps and sunshine and walked the dogs then did my own 3.55 mile walk.

Almost talked myself out of doing strength today, then I thought I am on week 3 and need to keep the streak alive- so this evening I did 2 SP fitness videos:
7 minutes Seated Arm Workout with resistance band
7 minutes Upper body resistance band workout

I am using my green medium resistance band currently, when that seems too easy then I will upgrade, but I think it may take me a while before the move upward.

Wow, completed the 2nd week of the bootcamp challenge and added more bonus workouts then asked.
Today, I did day 7's core strength workout and for giggles I did the Cardio Kickboxing workout from the SP Cardio Blast dvd.

I sure am tired tonight and my muscles are sore all over.

Me, I took on day 6 upper body workout and used my 8 lb weights and during the pushups did full plank ones, with 12 reps!

Lots of cardio in today since the snow has melted but still cold outside- managed to get 3.04 miles in though!

WOOHOO - Today I finish my first week of bootcamp! Hurray! I CAN do it! My bad knee is killing me so no more running on the treadmill and I am only doing 2.5 mph walking for cardio while healing but I WILL continue. The videos are great and I, too, love the stretches. emoticon

Took on bootcamp day 5 lower body workout for the 10 minutes. Nice muscle burn and I love the stretching at the end. Nearing the end of my week 2 of the bootcamp challenge and even added 3 extra strength workouts. I am staying consistent with my yoga dvd workouts too during the week so a well round routine with cardio, strength, toning & balance with yoga.

Did the video for Day 4... It's a solid core workout and I thought I handled it pretty well. Plank was the only move I had any real problem with and I could do the plank, just couldn't do the forward and back with it. Think I'll be feeling this later though! I sure did yesterday.

Bootcamp week 2 on day 4. So took on the day's workout of video 4 for the core area then decided to amp it up and added a 3rd bonus video workout for the week doing:
5 minute Core Workout with the Ball. This one was quick and interesting, plus I could feel it in my core area. Nice change of pace.

Day 3 of the official bootcamp.

Went a lot better than day 2 though I still can't really do push ups--I've reached a point where wall pushups are at least no longer challenging enough but even modified push ups are a little too much.

I am into week 2 of the 28 day bootcamp challenge.
Today (1/10/11) while the snow was falling here in NC I took on day 3 video of bootcamp with my 8 lb weights and stability ball to sit and balance on. Then I added my 2nd bonus workout for the week by choosing the 7 Minutes Upper Body Resistance Band Workout. Lets just say I got muscle fatigue by the end.

I have been sticking to it and did bootcamp day 6 strength workout yesterday for the lower body and this morning I completed bootcamp day 7 for the core strength workout. So one full week of sticking to my strength workouts and getting some major cardio minutes in after my slow December.

Cannot wait to see what week 2 bootcamp workouts will entail.

Did my lower body circuit today + cardio = 50min.
Free Weight circuit: 1st circuit is 15-18 reps. 4-5 different exercises, NO rest between exercises (weight loss!) at end of each circuit, 1 minute rest and water.
2nd circuit, same exercises as 1st but heavier weights and 10-12 reps, 15 second rest between exercises.
3rd circuit, choose three exercises from last circuit, increase weight, do 6-8 reps, no rest until this circuit is finished. For fast results I Avoid most the weight machines since they do about 25% of the work for you. Not a good thing. emoticon

Hi all

I did so many exercises with my trainer today it was mind boggling, lower body strength, super 20 minutes of core including planks front and side, which I could hold for a minute x 3, cardio all in 90 minutes and according to my HRM 647 calories.

This is a great team. And to boot down 2 lbs.

My goal is 2-3 times a week (2-3 because when I fence I lose a day of strength training; I can't do them on the same day or consecutive days). Though I didn't workout Monday and Tuesday this week because I wasn't feeling well so at best I'll get in 2 days this week.

I'm walking with my walking poles and can really feel it in the shoulders. I did 3 times a week in the past. I've walked with them the last 4 days in a roll and notice a difference. I will go back down the 3 times a week though so for my muscles' sake. Nordic pole walking gives an upper body workout at the same time as the benefits of taking a walk.

Bright and early I tackled my yoga workout and did Day 4 video for bootcamp challenge. Today's workout with Coach Nicole was for the core area and I believe we were doing somewhat shorter version of her Crunchless Core Challenge workout. So I am happy with today's core workouts, now onto cardio.

Hi all,

I do strength training three days per week minimum with a trainer, and the odd time will add another session though I usually do two all cardio/core and then yoga on Saturdays.

I luv working out.

I do free weight circuit training 4-5 days a week for approx. 40 minutes per session. Because its a circuit, the weights I use for each exercise will vary 2-8 lbs. I'll figure out an average and post it.

approx. 180 minutes per week.

I am working at staying consistent with doing strength workouts even if they are only 10 minutes to start. I'd like to build up to 20-30 minutes each workout and rotate body areas. I've got a number of different size weights *My husband just got me my 8 lb. ones* and resistance bands.
Currently I joined the 28 day bootcamp challenge and that will focus on incorporating those kind of workouts in 7 days a week. Should be a great way to keep the consistency going, I think.

Today I did Day 2 video of the bootcamp challenge which had Coach Nicole running me through a lower body workout using a chair and my 8 lb. dumbbells.

I focus a lot on ST as well and I try to do 6 exercises each day, rotating between lower body, core and upper body. Which is kinda like 30 mins a day, 210 minutes a week.

Taking a huge leap of faith and going for 2 times/week

Thanks for offering this as I really won't do it otherwise

Every day I am on the verge of making slight changes that would make all the difference in my life.

One day I won't be able to do this, but today is not that day

I need to add strength exercise but I'll have to first figure out what kind I'll do. I am sure not to do it more than 2x per week for starters. I'll report back.

Hi Team,

After reviewing the comments to see what people want to focus on for the new year and help them with consistency and accountability I decided to break up the monthly challenge into sections.

This topic is for strength training. Put down what your weekly goal is to get strength training incorporated into your lifestyle (how many times a week). Then on the days you do your strength training report in on what you chose to do and if you want to be indepth how many reps and sets of each exercise.

This can cover:
body weight challenge exercises
(lunges, pushups, crunches, etc...)

dumbell and weight exercises
(please note down what weight you are using so if you progress during the month we can stand up and all applaud) *remember you can use everyday household objects to start with for weights if you don't have some lying around the house

stability ball, balance board, foam roller, and resistance bands

Or for those who head to the gym and use the machines report in what equipment used and your reps/set count.

Another great source is here on SparkPeople using the strength training exercise demos, the pre-made workouts, and Coach Nicole has even created small 10 minute workouts for strength that can even be done at your desk. Check them out since they are easy to follow and it helps you mix it up.

Ready, Set, Lift! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
