Take Care of Your Body
A friend of mine from English class has been hospitalized since last Thursday due to problems with her heart. I haven’t heard the details so I can’t say for sure, but her close friends suspect anorexia is to blame. She’s one of the most hardworking athletes I know that is always drinking water, eating her lunch, and eating energy bars so I was surprised to hear that. Although she does eat a regular amount of food, she burns it all off by waking up at 5 in the morning to run 4 miles, do 200 squats, and 200 crunches. Moral of story: take care of yourself! Make sure you’re taking in enough calories to support your body. She’s a varsity volleyball and track star and I really hope she’ll be able to continue running and jumping this season.
Alright, so here’s the deal. Summer will soon be upon us. Actually, the weather across most of the U.S. is probably telling most of you that it’s already here. But the truth is, it’s only March, which means you still have time to get into beach-ready shape and sculpt your best bikini body! And, you can do it with me! ;)
Fit Sugar recently shared this epic list of 11 boot camp style workouts, all aimed at helping you get ready for bikini season. My goal is to try them all, and I want you to do it with me! Starting today, every Saturday up until June 2nd (11 Saturdays from now) I’ll be completing a new Bikini Boot Camp Workout from the list and posting it here to help remind you to get your bikini bottom in tip top shape! (P.S. Fellas, I know you’re probably not planning to throw on a bikini before you head to the beach, but you can totally join in on this challenge if you want a “beachin’ body!”)
Of course, just one workout a week won’t yield the kind of results we’re looking for here, so remember to use this as an extra supplement to your normal weekly workout routine, which should also include a clean, healthy diet! Deal? Deal!
OK, now mark your calendars… Here’s the schedule!

6.5 miles on the stationary bike in less than 30 minuets! Level 5, what a struggle. I’m somewhat glad that I’m not doing the normal workouts with my team (who actually wants to do 3x300 and 6x150??) but my long jump and hurdles technique won’t improve if I don’t return and I’d also end up losing my spot on varsity.
