Holiday HIIT, Kickboxing and Boot Camp Commitment


I was doing the Retro thing a while back, starting from Cathe's first workouts and going forward in time, but there was too much dread factor in the step workouts. I'm just not coordinated enough. Along the way I discovered this love of her kickboxing stuff, and I've always liked HIIT. Having developed tennis elbow in late summer, I had to quit doing strength training for a while but feel sufficiently recovered to ease back into it with boot camp workouts. Since I live near Chicago where it's now way too cold for biking and running outdoors, I figured I'd combine what I liked best into an indoor rotation that will help me maintain (or even lose a pound or two) over the winter holiday season. I might as well create a check-in to keep myself accountable, and its even kind of retro since I'm going back through all of her workouts in those genres from the beginning (in no particular order).
