20 Minute Boot Camp Workout

I have a fast-paced workout to share with you guys today!

20 Minute Boot Camp Workout

After working through the morning, it was time for my own workout! I first warmed up with 20 minutes of light cardio on the elliptical with a magazine before it was time to kick things up a notch. 

On the agenda for today was this 20 minute boot camp workout:

20 Minute Boot Camp Workout

It’s one that can easily be done at home in your living room if you have access to a set of dumbbells. (You’ll just need to modify some of the exercises that require equipment you may not have on hand. For example, you can easily use a dumbbell in place of a kettlebell and mimic jump roping in place if you don’t have a jump rope at home.)

Here are links to demos of some of the exercises:

If you give it a go, let me know! The workout can easily be doubled if you’re looking for a 40-minute boot camp workout as well. And please don’t forget to rest as needed and listen to your body!


After my workout and a client training session, it was time for lunch.

I hurried home to let Sadie out, type up this blog post and quickly blend together a smoothie for lunch before I have to head back out.

Healthy Smoothie

Today’s lunchtime smoothie didn’t look too appetizing but it included some nutritious ingredients and tasted good. That’s all I need!

  • Cherry Greek yogurt
  • Frozen cherries
  • Frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • Fresh spinach
  • Fresh kale
  • Almond butter
  • Light coconut milk

Black Cherry Smoothie

Gotta run!

Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday!

    I just finished this workout! A 20 minute workout with 20 different exercises is perfect for my exercise ADD 🙂

    I do have to say it was tougher than I thought it would be. Its always slightly less miserable though when you know someone else did it too 🙂

    I’m all about mango smoothies right now! Mango season is in the summer and I cannot wait to indulge myself in anything with my fave fruit. 🙂

    Hey Julie!

    How do you make your workout routine images? I posted a workout today and made mine on pic monkey: http://www.lakeshorerunner.com/2014/05/29/sweaty-full-body-workout/

    It turned out alright but yours are always so creative and easy to read. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    I love love love this PB Oatmeal Chocolate Smoothie: http://www.lakeshorerunner.com/2014/04/29/core-power-chocolate-pb-oatmeal-smoothie/

    I don’t think I will ever get sick of it!

      I use picmonkey, too!! I think your image looks great! I just try to pick two or three colors to focus on and use a white background most of the time.
