30-Minute Bootcamp-Style Workout + Join Me for a Record Breaking Attempt

I’ve got a new bootcamp-style workout to share with you today that’s right around 30 minutes and features bodyweight exercises so it can be done anywhere! But first, I’m super excited to share details on awesome Guinness World Record breaking attempt that I’m participating in on Saturday!

Stax Bootcamp Guinness World Record Breaking Attempt

I’m joining Randy Moss, Emily Breeze Watson and the STAX Bootcamp team as they attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the Largest Bootcamp/Circuit Training in History!

It’s a FREE event and all fitness levels are welcome. The workout will consist of 10 bodyweight movements performed for 3 minutes each with 1 minute rest in between. I will be leading one of the 10 movements! I was super stoked when Emily reached out to me about being one of the trainers for the event.

Randy Moss and Emily Breeze Watson

Emily and Randy lead free bootcamp workouts every Monday and Wednesday for the Charlotte community at STAX. Their bootcamp is crazy popular and they regularly have 300-500 people in attendance. They make these workouts available for free with the mission of making Charlotte a fitter city. The puprose of this Guinness World Record breaking attempt is to put Charlotte on the map as a city full of healthy and active people.

The current record is 2,168 and we’re hoping for upwards of 3,000. It’s going to be a huge event with over 200 vendors on-site and a big block party after with food trucks and craft beer.

If you’re in the Charlotte area, JOIN ME! Let’s #breakrecordsCLT! Pre-registration for the event is required but remember, it’s FREE! CLICK THIS LINK TO REGISTER.

To get you in the bootcamp spirit, I put together a bootcamp-style workout that you can do on your own anywhere with no equipment! (Note, this is NOT the event workout.)

A 30-minute bootcamp-style workout featuring 10 bodyweight exercises.

What you’ve got here is 10 movements that will be performed for one minute each, straight through. You’ll take a 1-2 minute break at the end and then do it all over again…two more times! With two, one-minute breaks this is a 32 minute total body workout!

Here’s a video demoing all 10 movements and here are a few notes on the movements.

  • The walking lunge/jump lunge combo is two walking lunges followed by three jump lunges so that every time you do a jump lunge combo, you end up stepping the opposite foot forward. If jumping doesn’t work for you, just stick with the walking lunge. No space to walk? Forward or backward stepping lunges in place.
  • Plank up and downs can be modified to the knees. So can the push ups.
  • No space for broad jumps or bear crawls? Sub jumping jacks, tuck jumps, mountain climbers or more burpees!
  • On the tap and reach squats, take the jump out for a lower-impact option.
  • Keep your core engaged and low back pulling down towards the hands on the flutter kicks. Don’t strain the low back and look at your toes while you flutter. (And breathe!)
  • Lots of burpee scaling is available. You can jump back to high plank instead of going all the way to the belly. You can also step back and step up if you don’t want to jump.

Let me know if you have questions and as always, I love your feedback! 

Happy sweating and let me know if I’ll see you on Saturday!!!!!

    I see a lot of great workouts that require little to no equipment always use tricep dips for the triceps but I have wrist problems (carpal tunnel) and I can’t do them comfortably – any advice?

      Do you have a set of dumbbells at home? If so you can put your hands on dumbbells to neutralize the wrists as you do them. You could also do them on a padded surface on your fist instead of palms. You could also sub tricep push ups. Hope that helps!

    I just listened to a podcast about the November Project (have you heard of it? Started about 6 years ago by two college friends in Boston wanting to get in shape) and this bootcamp seems really similar! I wanted to see if there’s a NP group near CLT but unfortunately there isn’t. I’ll have to check out one of their weekday workouts! Thanks!

      Hey Shannon, I have not heard NP but I’ll check it out!

      Definitely try out one of the STAX bootcamps. It’s an experience!

    This bootcamp workout you’ve shared sounds fun! One minute seems like a looongggg time to do squat jumps. Eeek! 🙂

      May need a break or two for a few seconds thrown in there! 🙂 I purposefully program these to burn you out and then give you relief by either letting you lay down or work another body part!

    I just moved to San Francisco and haven’t had time to figure out what I gym I want to join so I did your 1000 rep workout last Friday (only made it 8 rounds) and was so sore ALL weekend and just finished this bootcamp style workout (3 rounds). Thank you so much for posting them, I love (hate) the workout you create! 🙂

      This makes me so happy to read! And I hear ya on the love/hate. I saw a funny Pinterest quote that “my only true love/hate relationship is with my trainer.” Hope you’re getting all settled in San Francisco!
