Bootcamp For Boston

To honor the victims and families of the Boston Marathon tragedy as well as to give thanks to the men and women who were there to help aid and rescue people,  I put together a “Bootcamp For Boston” workout that we can all do on Saturday April 27, wherever you are.

Since not everyone has equipment or access to a gym, I’m making this a bodyweight only workout.

To represent the marathon, which is 26.2 miles in length, we’re going to do 26 exercises, 26 reps each.

We’ll end the workout with a 2 minute finisher.

Please start with this Tabata Hybrid warm up:

20 sec work, 10 sec rest for each exercise – 1 time through

1) Squats
2) Push Ups
3) Squat Jumps
4) Get Ups
5) T-Stabilization
6) High Knee Jog in place (jog in place, knees up as high as possible)
7) Mountain Jumpers
8) Jumping Lunges
9) Butt Kick Jogs (jog in place, heels up as high as possible)

    Great idea. But where was the Boot Camp for Sandy Hook? As a foreigner, I find it strange that Americans react really strongly to terrorist attacks (and quite rightly so) but the much more common incidents of gun violence are almost accepted as being normal 🙁

It is such a popular activity that there are numerous hiking organizations worldwide. The health benefits of different types of hiking have been confirmed in studies.^’*’
