The Bachelorette’s Shawn Booth Shows You What a Boothcamp Is
You may recognize him from Cycle 11 of the reality show The Bachelorette, but Shawn is much more than just a very attractive TV star. He is a certified personal trainer and the man actually finished the Ironman race. He even launched a gym in Nashville, Tennessee – his hometown – and called it Boothcamp, no less! In fact, even before he started winning hearts on TV, Booth was a trainer. We warn you ladies, do not let his lovey-dovey side fool you – he is tough…
Plenty of bachelorettes come to his Nashville gym, walking in, thinking that it would be an easy and fun way to exercise, but they get their behinds kicked. There have even been women who arrived with roses, and have had to trade them for dumbbells. So if you’re looking to work out while having some eye candy to stare at, this IS the right place for you.
He says there needs to be balance
There will be excuses, whether it’s football season, family barbecues, or the holiday season, but to lead a balanced life, you work harder to lose the pounds and even have a couple of beers later. During his favorite football season, Shawn sweats it out on Sunday before the beer chugging starts. Hitting the gym with his friends, he likes doing a long cardio session involving sprints, burpees, HIIT workouts, and then watching the game together.
Want to undergo your own Boothcamp?
Try this four-move course for your next pre-game sweat session. Each exercise needs 1 minute without rest. After completing the circuit, take rest for 60 seconds, then repeat. You need to do 3-4 rounds of this.
Push-Ups, but Staggered
Position yourself in high-plank with one hand holding your weight at shoulder level and the other, slightly above your shoulder. So essentially a regular push-up, where both hands are not placed symmetrically. Tuck your tailbone, straighten your body, bend your elbows and slowly lower your torso to the floor and then push your body up again. Do as many as you can in 30 seconds without a break, and then repeat by switching hands.
Standing with your legs spread apart at hip-width, put your hands on the ground while you quickly jump your legs out and behind you, drooping your torso to the floor. Do not confuse this with a push-up, you need to hit that floor! Again, use your hands to lift yourself off the floor and jump back into your standing position and lift your arms above your head. You need to do as many repetitions as you an in 60 seconds.
This comes recommended by many industry experts as a great way to lose weight. While standing, keep your legs apart at shoulder-width with the kettlebell held firmly with both hands. Bend with your knees, hinge your hips and swing-lift the kettleball back and forth between your legs. Using your glutes and legs, stand straight as you swing the ball to your chest’s height. Do this for 60 seconds.
Flutter Kicks with Weight
With your back to the floor, lie down and hold a dumbbell or medicine ball over your chest. Lift your legs and shoulders a little over the ground, just hovering above it. Hold this position while keeping you lower back firm on the floor. Start kicking one leg higher than the other and then do the same with the other leg. Press the weight above your chest while you keep kicking for 60 seconds.
