Here’s the back story to todays crazy bootcamp drills
A while back I was asked to deliver a corporate team building session for a local company.
The world renowned Wrigley’s chewing gum company. Just to give you an idea how big this company is, it was acquired by Mars in 2008 for $23 billion.
I’ll have a piece of that, thank you.
The staff had been let down last minute, so a staff member who attended my bootcamp ask me if I fancied doing it. So I did. I prepared lot’s of awesome bootcamp drills and fun team games & challenges.
The session was such a success that they insisted I come in and train them for 1 hour once a week on a Wednesday.
I did that for 2 ½ years. Half way through the new managing director wanted to sack it off due to budget cuts.
So I said, before you do, please at least take part in a session.
I really wanted him to experience that team feel that had brought his staff together and got them working so well as a team.
He attended the session and was blown away. And yes, they found room in their budget for me.
Nice story eh!
Now on to the workout.
One of the fitter guys used to ask me to show him my toughest bootcamp drills.
So towards the end of one of the sessions when we were through with all the team stuff, I set him a challenge.
And guess what? The entire group joined in to test their metal.
Here are the bootcamp drills
if you’re brave enough
I was reminded of these bootcamp drills today when I saw that a UBW Facebook group member Tanya Dikes had posted an almost identical drill.
Here’s the copy and paste version.
10 Push ups – 10 seconds plank
9 Push ups – 10 seconds plank
8 Push ups – 10 seconds plank
7 Push ups – 10 seconds plank
6 Push ups – 10 seconds plank
5 Push ups – 10 seconds plank
4 Push ups – 10 seconds plank
3 Push ups – 10 seconds plank
2 Push ups – 10 seconds plank
1 Push ups – 10 seconds plank
For you and your really fit lot, here’s the challenge:
Complete the entire drill with your knees off the floor. There are many different versions to this workout. You can change the variation by changing the type of push up, and changing the time in the plank.
Now, chances are you’ll shy away from this drill but you’ll still expect your clients to do it.
So the rule is, do not try this with your group if you’re not willing to try it yourself.
