OHS Day 16: No Keys in the Cart (Ryno)

Ryno hopped on the “Gator”/Golf Cart after the last day of Boot Camp for Week 4 and wanted to take it for a spin, but the keys weren’t in it(and he would’ve probably gotten in trouble). After one month of Operation Healthy State, Ryno is already seeing some real results!

OHS Day 15: The Biggest Sweat V (Ryno)

Coach Kilgore worked out Ryno and Dawn on the football field with some exercises involving straps and “plates”(45 pound weights), and it turned into a race(of sorts). Ryno was proud of how much he sweated today, and he grossed out Dawn with his “Sweat V”.

OHS Day 14: Coach Kilgore ratchets up the intensity! (Ryno)

Ryno made an observation to Coach Kilgore as the workout was winding down, that he didn’t really enjoy the workouts, but he noticed he’s got more energy AFTER the workout! If you struggle with staying motivated to workout, just remember, when you push yourself, you make yourself just that little bit better!

OHS Day 13: Week 4 Begins (Ryno)

Week 4 of the Operation Healthy State Boot Camp began in the rain, and Coach Kilgore ratcheted up the intensity, which pushed Dawn and Ryno to their limits. Ryno had to compete with Mother Nature just to get to the gym, but bad weather is no excuse for skipping a workout.  

OHS Day 12: All By Myself Part 2 (Ryno)

Ryno took to the Boot Camp course sans Dawn again(but she DID get a makeup workout in, so good for her!) and he almost pushed himself too hard. Ryno had dinner plans butting right up to his workout time, and he almost set his pace too high to get finished in time for dinner. He … Continue reading “OHS Day 12: All By Myself Part 2 (Ryno)”

OHS Day 10: Fighting Through Back Pain (Ryno)

When Ryno first tried to get fit a couple years back, he would push himself a little too far and his back would tighten up. Back then, he would’ve taken a day or two off to let his body recover, but that was before he had a better understanding of why his back was getting … Continue reading “OHS Day 10: Fighting Through Back Pain (Ryno)”

OHS Day 9: First Afternoon Workout (Ryno)

Ryno likes the fact that he doesn’t have to get up before sunrise to work out anymore, but he has noticed his energy level is TOTALLY different in the afternoon, compared to the early morning workouts. [We also started working out on Sundays, and since Sunday was Mother’s Day, Happy Mother’s Day!]

OHS Day 7: First Day on Our Own (Ryno)

Ryno and Dawn found themselves without a trainer, as Coach Kilgore took some much needed time away from the gym this week, but they managed to stay motivated and finish each workout just like they would for Coach Kilgore. Ryno had to push a little extra today to work off a salad that surprised him … Continue reading “OHS Day 7: First Day on Our Own (Ryno)”

OHS Day 6: Today Was a Good Day (Ryno)

Ryno had his best workout yet(even better than yesterday), and he is surprised that he is seeing positive changes to his energy level this early in the Boot Camp. He also gives you a tip on how to handle eating breakfast if you want to work out early!

OHS Day 5: Week 2 Begins (Ryno)

Ryno finally seems to have figured out his body clock and a workable routine that led to his best workout of Boot Camp, so far. If you have trouble eating before a workout, maybe you should do like Ryno and hold off on eating(only hydrate well) before working out.

OHS Day 4: Last Day of Week 1 (Ryno)

Ryno survived the first week of Boot Camp, and after getting a full night’s rest, he had a better time of the workout this morning. That didn’t stop him from losing out to Dawn in the Cardio Competition, and his attempt at a little “smack talk” fell short of the mark.
