First of all – thank you for all of your ideas for the workout names. We were laughing our heads of when we were reading your comments :) Some of the names even gave me new ideas for workouts that would match with them. Today’s workout is called Guns and Buns because it’s not brutal enough to call it ”Zuzana wants me dead workout” :) and you will indeed work your guns and buns in this routine. Texas Cindy came up with the name – thanks! :) Keep them coming guys, you have great ideas.
I did this workout for the first time on October 29 and my personal best from that day was 19 minutes and 48 seconds. Today I managed to beat my old personal record and I have completed all 6 rounds in 15 minutes and 16 seconds. Can you beat this? :) Let me know.
There were 6 rounds of the following 3 exercises:
1. Cross Over Lunges – 10 reps total
Step forward and across your standing leg into a lunge. Stay in the lunge for 3 short bounces.
Bring the back knee up and to the side, then lunge back across the standing leg again and get into the starting position. This counts as one rep. Continue the second rep on the other side
2. Santana Zuzana Push Ups – 6 reps
Squat down and put your hands on the ground in front of you. Jump your feet back and get into a plank. From the plank position, bring your body down until it almost touches the ground and then perform one push up. Remember to keep your hands underneath your shoulders, and your shoulders down and away from your ears. Keep your abs tight and don’t arch your back.
Rotate your upper body into a side plank and place your hand behind your head. Try to keep your body in one straight line. Bring your upper elbow down towards the hand of the supporting arm and then reverse the movement and get back into the plank. Jump your feet forward towards your hands. Push off of your feet and rotate the whole body towards the opposite direction as you jump up. Push off of your feet and rotate the whole body towards the opposite direction as you jump up.
3. Side Lunge Jump – 5 reps on each leg
Start in the side lunge position as shown on the picture. Try to get your thigh parallel to the ground. Don’t let your knee reach over your toes. Keep your back straight, chest up and shoulders down.
Push off of the standing leg and jump up, bringing the heel of the other leg towards your butt. Land softly on the ball of your foot and return to the starting position. This is one rep. Complete 5 reps on each leg.
My Workout Clothes
Many people have asked me about my workout clothes and that’s why I am sharing with you today what I’m wearing and what kind of clothes I prefer. Maybe it is because I am young or maybe because I am Czech :), but I just really like clothes that are sexy and make my body look good. I find it really hard to find pants that make my butt look nice. Lululemon pants are still the best in my opinion, but my new pants from Adidas can easily compete with them. The cut is really important. I think we all agree that round butt looks better than flat butt. I am not talking about size – I am talking about the shape. I think that most girls butts look best in pants that have a short seam going from the crotch and ends at the hip level.
Check out my new gloves.
Too cool for school :)
