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.
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)”
Ryno worked out by himself on Day 11, because Dawn wasn’t feeling well, and he gave himself a point in the Battle of the Sexes for his effort. Do you think he should’ve awarded himself the point?
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)”
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!]
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)”
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!
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.
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.
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!
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!
