Commando Pull ups challenge accepted :)

I couldn’t resist to make a video response and officially accepted TheArchfiend’s challenge. Who thinks that I can beat him?! I hope you all are with me :)




Around The Web
  • Guspitito

    Is there a way for me to join the competition? I think I can win!


    I was wondering the same thing,ZXT. I want to see her beat him as we know she can.

  • http://www.nothingbutrandom.com ZXT

    So whats the verdict? I’m searching but I didn’t find any videos where Zuzana did the pull ups to beat Archfiend.


    GOOOO, ZUZANA!!! YOU’LL WIN FOR SURE. HE LOOKS LIKE A WIMP,ANYWAY. He’s got the wrong picture hanging on his wall-Kournikova?? Ha, you’re far more prettier and physically fit than she is. ZUZANA, THE WINNER!!

  • Bobby

    Nevermind, I was reading it from bottom to top instead of top to bottom! lol. Zuzana, you are soooooo cut it is crazy! you must be like 4% body fat or something like that.

  • Bobby

    What did Ken say that was mean???!!?!?! haha, i am just being nosey.

  • Ramon

    You can do it!!

    I hope this helps to encourage

    If you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
    But make allowance for their doubting too,

    If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
    Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

    If you can dream–and not make dreams your master,
    If you can think–and not make thoughts your aim;
    If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;

    If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
    Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build ‘em up with worn-out tools:

    If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
    And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breath a word about your loss;

    If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,
    And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on!”

    If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
    Or walk with kings–nor lose the common touch,
    If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
    If all men count with you, but none too much,

    If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
    Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
    And – which is more – you’ll be a Man, my son!

  • Juliana

    I believe this will be very fun and exciting. And even if you don’t win, we know that your positive and uplifting spirit can’t be beaten. I am with you!! All the way you go girl…

    Even your dog hopped onto the stairs to give you his full support ;)

    Or maybe he just wanted to be on youtube…

    In fairness, he did kick your ass, cranking out twice what you did. The difference is gender and I doubt you’ll catch him. But why not challenge him to beat you in some of your other exercises. Not really fair if he gets to pick and chose!

  • Stuart

    I think you can beat him Zusana, i’m sure you can achieve anything you set your mind to.

  • BDZero

    I did 8 today on each side :D

    Zuzana~My $$$’s on you!
    Go for it, girl!!


  • DavidRF

    The guy is a parkour practitioner, so even though his looks are not as sharp and defined as Zuzana’s, he’s certainly in very good shape. In his video he says to Zuzana “I’m not as in good shape as you” but I think it’s a lie… he knows he’s in very good shape.

    Anyways, I’d like to know what Zuzana thinks about the fitness girl challenge :D I think she should challenge every girl out there ;)

  • Ryan

    Challenge him to Single Leg Squats. See what his lower body can do.

  • DavidRF

    I want to be clear: I think Zuzana can do better than 90% of men out there… I’m just saying that given the same physical shape (more or less) and training, men are naturally stronger in many areas.

    And I think that challenge another girl in great shape would be a real motivation for Zuzana :D

    Keep up the good work

  • DavidRF

    I think the real challenge would be againts another “fitness girl”.

    Zuzana is obviously great but I think it’s very difficult for a woman to compete with a man (if he’s in good shape) when it comes down to upper body strength.

    I think an averange strong/fit woman could compete with an averange strong/fit man only in abs exercises.

    So the real deal would be if a GIRL stood up for the challenge. That would be veeeeery interesting :D

  • Emanuel

    hi Zuzana you are the best woman please go and good luck

  • Tom

    kick his ass Zuzana!

  • Jovanka – Srbija

    I think you can do it.Go Zuzana beat him!
    Best Jovanka

  • http://bodyrock.tv Tania

    Hey Zuzana,

    Is he for real? Has he not seen you in action? Puh leez!

  • Kris

    Hey Zuzana totally awesome, love what you do with this site.

    Good Luck with the challenge!!


  • Frank

    I hope everything is going well for you and your loved ones, and I wish Peace, Prosperity, and Well-being to everyone visiting your site.
    I would like to suggest a slight variation of technique in the Commando Pullup. Arch your back and touch your chest to the bar instead of simply clearing your chin over the bar. This simple variation activates more muscle groups in your upper back and even helps to develop the intercostal fibers between the ribs. Basically, you aim to meet the base of your breast-bone with the bar; the feel of the movement is similar with the “curve” of a Hindu pushup.
    As far as the challenge goes: Good luck! Both of you will win Big Time! And so will anyone else who enters.
    Good Life!

    Good luck Zuzana. You will need to train hard to beat this mighty Russian ;)

  • ChrisB

    Your cat makes a cameo I see. Good luck! Try the ladder method of increasing your pullup reps. Pavel Tsatsouline recommends it (so glad you referenced him in an earlier vid).

    Looking forward to the video response!

  • Che’ Rock

    Yeah Z – I think you can do it. It’s gonna be tough, but I am in your corner 1000%

    Let me know how it goes. Keep me posted with the tips etc.

    Yours Truly


  • http://cooperlifestyle.com OmDoc


    I think it’s awesome that you are going to compete with this guy. I didn’t realize that that style of pull-up had a name. I have been doing them for a few years and really love the stretch that you get with them.

    Good luck… I’ll be pulling for you!


  • Monica

    If anyone can beat him it’s YOU Zuzana :-)

  • Ashley

    Well go aheaad girl. I believe in you.

  • Isis

    great for this guy and you to accepted, it will make you better congratulations!! I know you’ll be the winer.

  • Auwoodstock-Chile

    Go and kick him off!!! I know you can do it and I’m waiting for your post about it…I’m so far but I’m with you in this challenge.


  • Roger

    Ken I did notice that in the background of his room. I laughed too. I think that three things came to mind. One he challenged her because she is fit, second that she is as attractive and exotic as kournikova, and third because of her youtube subscribe count. I believe that he has the advantage in this event because he is a guy (born upper body strength) but I think that she will prevail. I would like to see an events program rather then just one exercise, choosing multiple events that favor each sexes strengths. She has iron will and I am betting on that. I mean after all he a a jumprope growing up and she had two chairs and a long string (in one of her youtube videos. Plus she has charlie and james. That makes her rough, rough. LOL So no matter how long it takes she will dog him down. LOL I love dogs. Good luck Zuzana.

  • Ken

    Anyone else notice the “Kournikova for President” banner on his wall? Maybe he spends too much time fantasizing about attractive athletic women, and not enough time training.

    • Zuzana – BodyRock.Tv

    I tried this exercise and think I’m performing it incorrectly as my body keeps wanting to swing around…
