At Ravenscourt Bootcamp our focus is on bodyweight conditioning.
All sessions start with a 10 minute warm up that includes running and range of other movement patterns (weaving, changing stride length, acceleration/deceleration, skipping, side stepping, high knees, heel kicks), upper body warm up (push ups, tricep dips, simple yoga down dog sequences), spinal stretches/releases and mobility exercises/stretches.
The body of the class consists of a diverse combination of circuits, team exercises, partner exercises, tabatas, challenges and games. Most sessions have some sort of teamwork component and members are always encouraged to support one another.
We always cool down with 5 minutes of stretches and releases.
We work through all the main body weight exercises for upper body, lower body and abdominal strength and endurance.
While we primarily use bodyweight, we also use resistance bands, resistance from partners, skipping ropes, raised surfaces/benches, balls and boxing kit.
Ground work is done on mats and in winter we work mud-free off the grass on the raised area pictured above.
All exercises are scaleable, so can be made more challenging or regressed/substituted as required for each member’s workout needs.
Sessions are varied to keep members mentally and physically on their toes.
