(1) get a deck of cards (2) assign each suit an exercise (3) assign all face cards an exercise (4) shuffle the cards and get to work!! Here is what the Rentless website suggested but the workouts are endless...let me know what you did!

Austin Fit Magazine

WE DID IT!!! My 5:30pm FREE Core Class at Jack and Adams made Austin Fit Magazine!!! Whoo Hoo!!! I'm so shocked and excited! Check out the article because it is one you can do without equipment (i.e. at home, hotel, family casa...). It just leaves you with NO EXCUSES!!

Now the only pic of me in this article is this top one, if you look close you can see my legs! My goal is by the time I'm 30 (I'm 26 now) I will have a head shot! :)

"The Carrie Story"

On Thursday October 21st, the 6:30am Rentless Bootcamp at Jack and Adams took on "The Carrie Story". Carrie McDonald (pic below) has been with Crossfit Central for a year, so here is her story...as well as a fun workout to go with it including her favorite moves (minus the burpees).
On 5/28/80 (5 situps, 28 russian twist, 80 sec plank hold) Carrie McDonald was born; this makes her 30 years old (30 lunges with med ball overhead). In 2009 (11 burpees) Carrie joined Crossfit Central, which was founded in 2005 (7 burpees). On 2/7/08 (2 sit ups, 7 russian twist, 8 sec plank hold) she ran her first Marathon (26 shoulder presses). On 12/5/10 (12 sit ups, 5 russian twist, 10 sec plank hold) she will run in the Dallas White Rock Marathon (26 shoulder presses). Her goal is 3:40 (3x40sec runs) which will quailfy her for the Boston Marathon (26 shlder presses) on 4/18/11 (4 situps, 18 russian twist, 11 sec plank hold) or the 2012 (5 burpees) Boston Marathon (26 shlder presses). Carrie has worked really hard for this, running 40-50mi/wk (4 runs), we wish this 30 y/o (30 ball taps) the very best!!!

"The Bruin"

While looking for a workout for myself Wednesday night, when I should have been planning a workout for my bootcamp I came across this workout called "The Bruin". As I was writting it down I thought, "OMG I could modify this for my bootcampers....they are going to hate me!". Therefore I have been putting all my bootcampers/clients through "The Bruin"!! When I get unsore from this weeks workouts, I personally (and because I promised my 5:30pm Bootcampers) I plan on taking on The Bruin. I will film it and post it! Meet "The Bruin"
100m sprint
83 Forward Lunges w/ wt. overhead
70 Squats
83 Reverse Lunges w/ wt. overhead
35 push press
100m Sprint
15 Thrusters
100m Sprint
83 Forward Lunges w/out wt.
35 Burpee
83 Reverse Lunges w/out wt.
100m Sprint
70 Double Unders
100m Sprint
Bootcampers used 6-10lb med balls for weight and did 70 sit ups instead of double unders! I'm in the process of trying to find the WOD to get the exact wt for the overhead incase you want to do it, but hang tight!

Above is my 5:30pm Rentless Brentwood Bootcampers (minus a few) who took on "The Bruin" during a make up Wednesday night!

My favorite feedback comment from this workout was: "BYOC...Bring Your Own Cane"

*pic of my 6:30am Jack and Adams Rentless Bootcampers to come when I get it off my camera*

I asked Gina how she felt after this workout, what was worse her shoulders or legs, her reply "I hurt all over". LOL! You know it was a good one!
