Bootcamp in the Rain

Talk about dedication.  Last night I subbed for outdoor bootcamp again.  I jinxed myself by saying last week was a beautiful night for bootcamp, because last night?  Not so much.

The class started at 6:15 under a very dark rain cloud, and by the time we completed our warm-up laps by 6:20, the sky opened up.  Instead of complaining or wanting to bring class inside though, these class members stuck it out.  There was a unanimous class vote to keep going through the downpour.  Bootcamp in the rain it was for these troopers!

I taught a stations themed class that looked like this:

Warmup
2 laps around the Y

5 Stations #1
60 seconds at each station, 2 people at each station

  • Alternating front lunges
  • Straight arm spiderman planks
  • Squat jumps
  • Pushups
  • Triceps dips

Two Minutes Cardio

  • 30 seconds burpees
  • 30 seconds runners
  • 30 seconds burpees
  • 30 seconds runners

Then repeat 5 stations #1 and take a lap!

5 Stations #2
60 seconds at each station, 2 people at each station

  • 180 squat jumps
  • Straight arm plank shoulder taps
  • Touchdown lunges
  • Inchworms
  • Overhead presses

Two Minute Cardio

  • 30 seconds burpees
  • 30 seconds runners

Then repeat 5 stations #2 and take a lap!

For the end of class we had some extra time, so we did some non-stations stuff.

What rock stars, huh?  They said it made them feel like they were doing “actual” bootcamp.  I loved this energy!

Ever done a workout in the pouring rain? 

I’ve worked out in the rain before, but I had never taught my indoor class soaking wet until last night!  I brought a change of pants, but the pants I had on while outside were so wet I didn’t think I’d be able to get them off in time.  I did luckily have a change of sneakers though!
