Viva Las Vegas!

Hi guys it’s Jono reporting from Las Vegas. How are you? I’m AWESOME. I landed in Vegas on Wednesday and it is FREAKING HOT over here! It’s the middle of summer and we’re in the middle of the desert! So, I took the opportunity to kick back at the pool for a couple of hours to work on my tan because I had the feeling there was going to be a lot of fit, tanned people here this week so I wanted to try and keep up with them :-p

Anyways… I want to continue on from where we left off on Wednesday. Now, I LOVE High Intensity Workouts and I LOVE Outdoor group / team training! One tricky part to it is balancing your workouts.

If you’ve got a big group and you’re doing mainly body weight it’s super easy to use exercises like
Planks and their variations
Push Ups and their variations
Burpees and their variations
Mountain climbers and their variations
etc etc

The issue with this is the exercises are so anterior chain based!

I get it’s hard to program posterior chain exercises when you’re using just body weight, but it’s still essential that it’s done – otherwise your clients will have all sorts of imbalances.

What I recommend… Finish each session with 5-10mins of posterior chain work… Superman Variations, Bridge Variations, Partner Hamstring Curls!

These exercises are usually lower intensity which is why a lot of trainers don’t like doing them… BUT if you can do a mean 20-30min HIIT session (HIIT sessions shouldn’t really go for much longer… otherwise they are not really HIIT) then you’re clients will already be gassed out and won’t really be able to do any more high intensity work anyway so it’s the PERFECT time to finish with some lower intensity posterior chain work!

That’s it for today! If you want more tips on how to get the most out of your bootcamp sessions… then check our: Bootcamp Level 2 (11 CECs)
