Workout Mash Up! Grand Theft Booty + Counter Strike Workouts.

Hi BodyRockers,

We thought it would be fun to slam together two workouts and combine them together for something that kicks major butt so that is exactly what we did. This workout is full body and will leave no muscles untouched :)

Lately you guys have been writing in and asking about when it’s ok to take a break from training. Our schedule is set up so that there is something going on almost every day of the week, because we have people following from all over the place, and each of you has your own life schedule. We like to have something new for you guys on the site everyday, so that no matter what is going on with you there will be something new here for you to try that day. That said, we encourage each and everyone of you to listen to your bodies – if you feel like you need a break that day then take it. We will still be BodyRocking when you come back to the schedule :) Just make sure that it is your body telling you to take a break and not “Brutus” – you can usually tell the difference. Your body will feel like it needs a day off – Brutus will try to talk you into it with whatever excuses are handy. If it feels like someone is trying to talk you out of working out and suggests you sit on the couch and watch Friends reruns on the tube then that’s probably Brutus lulling you into being lazy. The other thing Brutus is famous for is telling you that you can workout later. Later, later, later, and pretty soon it’s midnight and who wants to workout then? Just keep an eye out for him, he gets a particular thrill out of talking BodyRockers out of their workouts.

Enough about Brutus… We are heading somewhere for the week – so starting tomorrow all of our workouts will be “on location” from this mystery spot. Hopefully it will help us jump start our drive towards getting in the best shape for summer by placing us in a summer like environment :) We will see you guys from there tomorrow.

Enjoy your workout!

Zuzana & Freddy

Instructions:

The only thing that you need for this workout is your Interval Timer. This workout has 3 parts and is 20 minutes short :)

For Part 1 set your timer for 9 rounds of two intervals. The first interval is your 10 seconds of rest and the second interval is 30 seconds of max effort. Your goal is to complete as many reps of each exercise during the 30 second intervals as possible. This part of workout takes 6 minutes.

Part 2 is a maximum sets challenge. Set your timer to count down 8 minutes for you and your goal is to complete maximum sets.

Part 3 is the same as part 1 except that you will be doing different exercises. Again set your timer for 9 rounds of two intervals. The first interval is your 10 seconds of rest and the second interval is 30 seconds of max effort.

Skipping:

After this workout do another 20 minutes of skipping. Today it’s your choice. I think I will do 20 rounds of 50 seconds of skipping and 10 seconds of rest.

Part 1 – Interval Training 6 minutes

Snowboarder

One Leg Squat and Side Kick

    wow.  that was tough.  because of an old knee injury, i have a really hard time with pistols.  my left side is good, but i can’t get past 90 degrees with my right.  guess i need to work on it.

    pt 1
    snowboarder: 15-15-15
    1 leg squat & side kick L:  7-7-6
    1 leg squat & side kick R:  6-6-6 (assisted)

    pt 2
    31 sets

    pt 3
    shelf butt:  19-21-21
    1/2 pistol & pike press L:  5-5-5
    1/2 pistol & pike press R:  4-5-4 (assisted)

    question:  in order to keep both sides even, should i do both sides assited, or both unassisted, but go the same depth on both sides, or not even worry about it?

    any pointers?

    thanks

  • Christine Bastien

    I did this one this morning, and the 20 min of skipping was long but oh so worth it! These days I don’t count my reps, but I do train now 6 days a week. The weekends are dreadful to me because they usually (always) involve partying with alcohol, “funny cigarettes”, and eating too much junk food. I’m not overweight (5’5 130lbs) but my progress goes 1 step forward during the week and 3/4 step back in the week end. I have made progress, I have never been this much “in shape” in all my life! But the weekends are one of my last weaknesses, and they come back every week! I keep the post of Freddy about the 3 ways we can go from here and keep thinking that discipline can be trained just like muscles. Let’s keep training!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZD3AKHNGT7XHPUQG62F223FTUI j

    this is a killer work out, i thought jumping rope at the end was gonna be cake but … no it’s not, i am spent…thanks suzka & freddy, hope u have fun at the mystery holiday beach you are going to, im thinking…italy? 

  • Sarah Foster

    My timer is still in the mail so this workout was tricky because I had to keep waking up my phone to check the stopwatch. I don’t have any scores to post unfortunately, but this workout kicked my butt in a good way!

  • Anonymous

    Just realized looking at the scores of others that for some reason I did the 2nd part 4 minutes as well, not 8..
    That’s why my score was so louzy compared to others .. :D

    Will do better next time, I promise!

  • http://www.facebook.com/ildiko.mazar Ildikó Sünci Mázár

    I had to work til late and I promised my husband dinner before 7:30 so I didn’t have time to do more than 5 minutes of skipping after the 20′ workout (+warm up, stretching and shower), but I’m not too sad as I’m actually gathering strength already for tomorrow’s challenge. I’m going to take advantage of my day off and tackle my sweetest love and worst nightmare: the 400 rep burpee torture.
    http://www.bodyrock.tv/2011/02/11/new-400-rep-workout-great-for-six-pack/

    Today I had a happy break through: I did ALL my one leg squats unassisted – both lefts and rights. I already mastered the right legged ones and did the odd left leg squat properly every now and then, but today I think I figured what I was doing wrong on my left leg. I had to lean just a little bit forward to be able to push my weight up. It still hurts like hell, but I’m doing it properly. Scores:

    Snow boarders: 18, 18, 18
    1leg squat side kick (L): 6, 6, 6
    1leg squat side kick (R): 5, 5, 5

    8 min PU / lunge combo: exactly 29 full reps

    Shelf butt: 30, 21, 22
    Half pistol 1leg pike press (L): 4, 5, 4.5
    Half pistol 1leg pike press (R): 5, 4.5, 5

      *high fives* :) Do you mind me asking where you started and how long it’s taken you. Sometimes it feels like an impossible dream – but you’re proof it’s not! Thanks for inspiring! 

    • Christine Bastien

      Nice!  I am also just doing half pistols… it feels like I will fall down if I go lower.  But I keep trying because you’re the proof that it is acheivable!  hahaha

    • Anonymous

      awesome! How did you practice them?

      • AmBoaksy

        The funny thing is, I haven’t been exercising as much as I was before.  I went on an internship at the end of the summer and have spent the past month trying to get back to where I was before – except, I never could do the pistons before.  lol.  I dunno what happened.  I didn’t really think about how hard they look.  I just did them, like I do any other exercise.  It just goes to show how much your mindset counts when doing these exercises.  If you think, “Damn that looks hard/impossible”, then it will be.  If you’re in a sleep-deprived haze exercising anyway (as I was), you’re not really thinking, you just do.  lol.  Believe it or not, what really helped was making sure that my core was tight the entire time.  It really helps getting back up.  It also helps to keep your balance.
        That being said, I’m paying for my success dearly though.  The sight of flights of stairs kind of makes me want to cry.  And it’s been 3 days!  lol

          That’s exaclty how I feel about it, that it is more a mental barrier than a physical (since I never had big problems with any of the other exercises…)
          But anyway, I found this really cool page for all of us who still struggle with one or the other exercise:

    Hi guys,

    I did this last night and really enjoyed the “mash-up”

    Snowboarder: 15, 29, 18 (did I count right on 2nd round? I don’t know)
    One Legged Squat with Kick Left: 6,6,6

    Walking Pushup, Side Hop, Side Lunge: 17

    Shelf Butt: 16, 12, 11
    Left Pistol and Pike: 3,3,3

    I did my jump rope in the am: 20 x 15:45, along with 45 Standing Rows from my Pull-UP Bar. (3:04)

    On the Pull-Up Bar, Dip Station site they have a progression of 10 exercises to get you to Pull Ups. The standing row is the second one in the series. I am going to be doing this progressions in hopes of training myself to be able to do full pull ups one day!!!!

    I sweated like a crazy!! Didn´t mind about “Brutus”, and today I was in a bad mood when I got home, after workout, my humor was great again, sometimes making a litlle strengh is good to unburden problems…
    I did the workout and right after the skipping, I did sets of 50 seconds and 10 seconds rest. Now I´m fine with myself again!!!Thanks again and always!! ^^

    Just finished this. :-) I didn’t entertain ‘Brutus’… I kicked ‘him’ out in my head! hahaha! *LOL* I also did the skipping for 20 minutes but I made a little modification. I made 30 rounds of 10 secs rest and 30 secs work of the following: 1.skipping, 2.bicycle, 3.skipping, 4.side crunches-left, 5.skipping, 6.side crunches-right. I repeated this cycle for 5x.
    Thanks for a hard-breathing workout!!!! Tomorrow again!!! :) XOXOXO

    Hi Zuzana,

    A mystery spot with a summer like environment? Some place in the southern hemisphere where it’s currently “summer” …maybe?

      Been thinking about it and came up with Hawaii? It’s warm and has friendly natives! 8-)

          Hi Flavia Requim, They where living just a couple hundred miles from me for several months and never visited! 8-(

          They’re busy with Bodyrock and maybe it would be cooler if they did a actual bootcamp or weekend where those who could afford it would get together with them to workout…some place warm and dry!

    This is just brutal!!!! Thanks for the post! I have to admit Brutus has been visiting way too much lately and due to going through one of the most challenging time of my life, I’ve been listening to him one too many times! But not anymore, as of right now I have my workout clothes on and I’m almost ready to be brutalised by one of your workouts…. and of course I chose one of the most brutal aka the “Swimming in my own sweat workout”!!! I’ll check back to tell you guys how it went… that is if I don’t drown!

      I’m back!! And I’m alive…ish! I already had my cool down, stretching and all that jazz… and I’m still shacking. I even managed to do 10 mins of jumping jacks, high knees, etc since I don’t have a skipping rope. I feel incredible!
      As a beginner I completed the workout in a ridiculous amount of time, but that’s ok, considering that I thought I was never going to be able to even finish it!!
      Kicking Brutus’ (and mine too) butt feels so freacking awesome! Off to a much needed shower!
      PS beginners please do not get discouraged, you’ll be amazed by what your body can do! Just give it a chance!

      I always find that if I am having a hard time getting motivated that simply putting my workout clothes on helps me lower the threshhold to working out. I ave a little routine. Clothes, then watch the vid and copy down the exercises in my journal. Then I set my interval timer, by then there is very little holding me back, usually one more cup of coffee and I am on it!! Good job, telling Brutus to go away!

        Katie, you are soooo right! Most of the times putting my workout clothes on is all I need to get motivated! I love your routine, I usually do it the other way around and I change my clothes at last… never again! I better get changed as soon as I wake up (not today but I usually workout first thing in the moning) before I even realize I’m awake because by then the rest usually follows… :D
