Long story made short. I have a chance to substitute for one of those outdoor bootcamp-like workout franchises. I've been to a few and I'm familiar with the drill (run, 20 pushups, run, 20 squats, run, 20 dips, etc). I'd like to make this particular camp more exciting but I'm not especially creative. I'm looking for suggestions regarding what others who have participated in one of these programs have done and liked (and thought was difficult) or from people who exercise outdoors and have come up with creative means of getting a strenuous workout. All participants in this particular outdoor bootcamp have 8 or 10 lb dumbbells and there are plenty of places to make them run, a stone "wall" tall enough and long enough for everyone to use for step-ups, dips, etc., a long tennis court and basketball court for suicides, and a short paved hill. I've looked on YouTube for videos but they are primarily promotional as opposed to instructional. So... any recommendations from you fitness buffs out there?
