Class last night was a disaster. For me, not for the class, they were great. I got a KILLER stomach/side cramp at the beginning of class and it pretty much got worse as the class wore on. This meant that I had to do some teaching off the bike (or sitting on the bike but not pedalling). I'm a big fan of being right there with the class and motivating them by working hard, so this was hard for me.

Tonight is boot camp, as a student, not teacher. Yay!
I thought I'd mention a few tools that this guy likes to use in his classes.
Stairs - We have to run up and down the stairs holding a medicine ball. Single steps on the way down, double steps with the ball over our heads on the way up. This is my idea of hell. Somehow I can spin all-out for hours, yet can hardly manage the stairs for 5 minutes.
It's a hard class, and that's what I like. During class I'm hating it, yet kind of liking it at the same time. At the end, I'm loving it.
I'm all about out of the box exercises and exercise equipment. What unique tools have you used or seen?
