2010's Popular Workouts

From, here's a year-ending list of 2010's fitness trends;

  • Barefoot running. (A trend I don't get at all.)
  • Working it "old school" i.e. working with your own body weight, sans fancy props and expensive equipment. (Push-ups, pull-ups, squats, sounds like Fitness Boot Camp all over again!)
  • Yoga mixed with everything. Snowga - on the ski slopes. Paddleboard Yoga - in the water. Koga - while kickboxing. (No thanks. I have enough problems with Downward Dog as it is.)
  • Triathlons, a "frenzy (that's) been building for a decade." (Thanks in part to Hollyweird.)
I'm not sure how I feel about triathlon being deemed either "frenzy" or "trend." That has an air of impermanence, don't you think?

While I'm at it, a few posts from the archives about Boot Camp fun and working it "old school;"
