Yesterday, I finally made it back to BootCamp at my gym. With the way my running has been set up lately, my long runs are usually on Sunday so I never get the chance to go. Since I ran long on Saturday this week, I was able to make it! Let’s just say, it thoroughly kicked my rear end.
Bootcamp at LVAC takes place in the group fitness room. Stations are set up all around the room and there are a couple of exercises at each one. Depending on the day, we might do tabata rounds (20s work, 10s rest, 8 rounds), 45 second rounds with 10 seconds rest, or any other timing the instructor comes up with!
Yesterday, we had 6 stations and alternated between high and low intensity workouts at each one. There were three 1 minute rounds of each exercise (so total 6 rounds) with ten seconds of rest in between each round. It was no joke!
Some of the workouts were: donkey kicks over the bench, decline push ups, burpees (ew), squats with front raises, rope slams, jump rope, and planks…there were a ton more but those are the only ones I remember 🙂
The class never fails at leaving me sweaty and sore…that’s why I love it! I won’t be able to make it the next couple of weeks since I’ll be out of town both Sundays. But, I’ll be going every week this summer (especially in June when I’m losing my mind from not running 🙂 )
Later on after Bootcamp, a delicious and protein packed lunch was in order. Here’s a super easy way to make yummy and healthy chicken! I make this all the time for my lunches.
All you need are frozen chicken breast tenderloins (unprepared, I use the Trader Joe’s ones), basil, pepper, and onions.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and place the chicken on an oven sheet lined with aluminum foil (I put parchment paper in between the foil and chicken. Foil has been found to leach out onto foods when heated. No bueno!) Then, sprinkle the toppings onto the chicken breasts. I cook them for 15 minutes, flip, and put them back in for another 15 minutes.
