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.
Coach Kilgore is pretty sneaky. He’s been training us using movements that we use in everyday life. It became clear to me last week as I played in a golf tournament for Millsaps College. Today was also not just #MotivationMonday, it was #MotownMonday
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.
It’s the end of week one for Operation: Healthy State. And Coach Kilgore wanted to make sure we went out on a strong note. So we did super-cardio today…including a race between Ryno and me. Battle of the Sexes? Ladies 1. Guys 0.
Ryno is learning the hard way that running on 5 or 6 hours of sleep(or less) isn’t conducive to a healthy lifestyle. He has worked on moving his bedtime back from around 2 or 3 AM to 11:30PM last night, but he will have to do better for the Operation Healthy State Boot Camp!
We’re three days into the boot camp, and while my shoulders were a little sore this morning (they really haven’t been exercised in months), we did get some good news. Things got a little easier. And Coach Kilgore shares the good things and the things he wants to see get better. Plus – for those … Continue reading “OHS Day 3: Challenges and opportunities (Dawn)”
Nothing is more frustrating when you’re trying to get in shape than seeing those reality shows or fitness magazines where people have these ridiculous 12-pack abs. They didn’t get that way overnight… it took time. And when starting something like this, you must make peace with the fact that you get healthier, one step at … Continue reading “OHS Day 2: Little by little (Dawn)”
Ryno woke up before the sun came up this morning only to find himself feeling ill, but after nature took its course (and with a granola bar and plenty of hydration) he was ready to take on Day 2 of the Operation Healthy State Boot Camp!
Ryno checks in with his video diary from the locker room immediately following Day 1 of the Operation: Healthy State Boot Camp!
Day one of the fitness portion of Operation: Healthy State was a little rough. Coach Kilgore wanted to give us an “easy” workout, but as you might imagine – after months of inactivity, “easy” is a relative term. It was challenging simply because you’re using your own body weight against you. But for your #MotivationMonday … Continue reading “OHS Day 1: Getting Started (Dawn)”
Before the Operation: Healthy State fitness program can get started, everyone goes through a fitness assessment. Dawn Dugle shares her thoughts after the 30 minute assessment.
Before Ryno and Dawn started Operation Healthy State, Coach Kilgore wanted to know where they stood in their fitness levels. It was supposed to be a simple few minutes, looking at strength and flexibility. But Ryno and Dawn quickly learned – it’s going to be tough.
