Of course, there is no way to spot reduce our body fat, but as I mentioned in a post a few days ago, high intensity exercise does seem to favor fat mobilization from the abdominal area.
So, just in case you all in my San Jose Boot Camp (Almaden/Cambrian) or Jackie’s Los Gatos Boot Camp didn’t make it to class this week (yeah, you know who you are!!!), I’ve written up a “no equipment needed” workout for you. Bonus points to the folks who attended all their classes this week and STILL do the workout. Chime in here by leaving a comment if you complete your workout this weekend.
“Fit and Fabulous” ladies from my Willow Glen boot camp for Baby Boomers: You’ve got some homework in the form of your take-home lesson from Thursdays class, “Home Circuit #4”, but you can add the workout below into your weekend plan if you’d like. Modify some of the movements if you need to.
Please remember to have a good, full body warm up before you start, and allow time to cool down, drink water and stretch after working out.
On your 1 minute cardio segments, attempt to exercise at an intensity of “8” or “9” on our scale of 1-10.
Here is your workout:
Step ups on a bench or porch step- 1 minute
Push ups- 15 repetitions
Jumping Jacks- 1 minute
Dips- 15 repetitions
High knees (or jog) in place- 1 min
Walking lunges- 15 out, 15 back
Rest 1 minute
Repeat circuit 1-2 more times for a quick but effective high intensity workout!
Current campers, don’t forget that you can grab your early bird discount up until Monday, April 27th for the Almaden camp, and Tuesday, April 28th for the Los Gatos and Willow Glen camps.
Registration remains open at the regular price for new and returning boot campers through Thursday, April 30th.

BTW: Jackie is out of town next week, so “yours truly” will be your instructor at our Los Gatos location next week :-). Be there!
Have a great weekend!
