Backyard Bootcamp

Hey friends!

Happy day before the long Holiday weekend if you’re in the states(and if you are lucky enough to get Friday off too)! Any big plans for the 4th? We’re taking it easy and hopefully will be soaking up some sunshine at the pool or the beach with a little cookout too.

Since it’s summer, I don’t want to be stuck inside for my workouts. I cycle, walk and run (when not on the injured reserve list!). So why not take my strength training workouts outside too? I’ve been taking things out of my “lab” (aka basement) to do my own backyard bootcamp. The early morning daylight and warm temperatures are perfect. The drawback of a backyard bootcamp at dawn after rain all night? You’ll spend LOTS of time swatting mosquitoes. But you will move a lot faster too. :)

Kick off your 4th of July celebrations with this Firecracker Workout and then spend the rest of your day relaxing and enjoying.

  1. Thanks for sharing all of these! I’m all about the outdoor workouts these days – I had no idea I would love teaching an outdoor boot camp as much as I do – so peaceful early in the morning!!!
    We always host friends for the 4th – cookout, fireworks on the drive and then go out on the boat to watch the show on the lake – one of our favorite holidays!!
