A Baby Boot-Camp For Beginners

beginner-bootcamp-workout
This is a workout for those who aren't ready for the "Insanity" type of workout but want to do a boot-camp class.  Do not worry, you will still get an excellent workout without the concern of hurting yourself.  I also have a more advanced version of the baby boot in case you are past that fitness stage.  I will post that later. To get started, make sure you warm-up your total body for at least 5 minutes.  All the equipment needed is an exercise tube.

  1. When I finally get some strength back, I'll have to try this workout! Resistance bands are my enemy, though... I've just never had the upper body strength to handle them, haha. Thanks for the post! Happy Friday!
