I think that we are a good team. I have a new workout for you called Crazy Monkey. Believe me that today I really didn’t feel like exercising at all, but I was so excited to use the names that you guys came up with that I decided to do a short workout just for the fun of it :) It takes only 15 minutes and it goes really fast. There are only 3 exercises in this workout and I do 4 reps for each of them. If you need to take a short break, then do it after you complete a full round. Make the exercises flow from one to the another. I realize that the Hanging Knee Raises might be too challenging for some people who haven’t been practicing them, so I wanted to ask you – the more experienced folks, if you know about a good variation of this exercise . I think that if you can’t do the knee raises, then you can at least practice the dead hang. Just hang on the rings or a pull up bar and hold yourself there for just a few seconds. If you practice the dead hang regularly, then as your strength increases knee raises will become an exercise that you can handle as well. Pavel Tsatsouline is a trainer that I respect and look up to and he believes that these hanging exercises are the very best overall abs and core exercises that exist. Once we mater the hanging knee raises we can move on to the hanging leg raises, but then I would have to change the name of this workout to the Zuzana wants me dead workout :)
Now I would like to share with you one comment that I got on my last post and I would like you to read it and give this girl a little support. Give her your advice and share your experiences. You can make one person happy just with one nice comment. Here is what Enolate wrote:
Thank you for your new workout. I’be been watching your workout for about 6 months now. I tried to start, but i fail. I bought special CD’s to workout at home (save money instead of going to gym) but i did only 2 out of 5 CD… i started one of our workouts–but then i failed. Then i’ve stared again and failed to continue again. Now I am afraid to start. Now, i desperatley need motivation and i just dont know how to start. Moreover, i am afraid to start because i feel that i will fail myself again and again… i am embaraced to write this out in public, but i feel if i do, you might advice where should i start and…. perhaps that will help me. I am not overweight, but I am not in my best shape as well. I am very busy with work, school and family, church activities etc…. Sometimes i feel beautiful sometimes i feel discused even by looking at myself. I am tired of this. Thank you for listening.
Please read the comments below this post. I believe that our great community is full of positive energy and their amazing stories will be the inspiration that you are looking for. I believe that there is always a major shift that happens in your life anytime you reach your big goal or dream. Getting into shape is the easiest thing to do, because you have already everything that you need to do this. It’s not like starting a successful business for example. You have your body that gives you enough resistance to train, you have the space around you to do the exercises, you have 20 minutes a day to do your workout, and you have internet access to watch our videos and share in the great community and supportive people here at the site ;) I can guarantee you that if you get in the best shape of your life, you will get some bonus out of it as well. I can’t tell you what it will be, but maybe some great job opportunity, new friendship, love, or something else that will open a new door for you.
Crazy Monkey is waiting :)
The 3 following exercises count as 1 round. I completed 28 rounds. Try to beat my personal best and enjoy this workout.
