Grocery List & Bodyweight Exercises

bootcamp exercisesSpent the weekend in Orlando working with some fitness pro’s, and got back Saturday night. It was a lot of fun meeting some experts who use TT bootcamp workouts and bodyweight exercises in their programs.

Yesterday I hit the gym for an extra workout, because this week I’m taking a break from heavy barbell work to plan out a bunch of new Turbulence Training programs.

And they are AWESOME!

(Two of them will be ready in December AND two more on December 26th.)

So Sunday morning, I ended up doing a killer intense bodyweight workout – it was harder than last month’s 4-week weights program, and it included 9 bodyweight exercises (not in this order):  bodyweight exercises

1) Pull-ups (finishing with 2 added crash sets, courtesy of Vince Del Monte)
2) Vertical Jumps
3) 1 and half rep Bulgarian Split Squats (my quads are feeling these!)
4) Bodyweight Rows (with another crash set)
5) Dips (my special “easier on the shoulder” version)
6) Bodyweight Triceps Presses
7) Reverse Lunges
8] Stability Ball Rollouts
9) 1-leg Calf Raises

That was actually Workout A of Bodyweight Bodybuilding, coming out in December. The sets, reps, and rests are very detailed.

However, if you want to IMMEDIATELY incorporate more bodyweight exercises into your workouts, OR if you are a personal trainer running bootcamps, then I have great news for you.
