Only Girl (in the world) Workout

Hi BodyRockers!

I really enjoyed our workout today because I was able to add another 2 completely new sandbag exercises that we have never done before here. You should have seen Freddy after his workout – he made a swimming pool in our living room :) I was reading through the comments and so many of you guys have posted positive results and the number of emails rolling in describing how you guys are changing your bodies is just so motivating! We read through so many incredible stories of how you guys are loosing extra weight, becoming more toned – how you guys are getting stronger, faster and fitter – Freddy and I can feel the energy here and as a group I really feel like we are building up this incredibly powerful and positive momentum :) It’s difficult to put into words, but you know that feeling when something just feels great? I hope that you guys understand what I mean :)

On that note, I want you guys to really put an extra push behind yourselves today. Very often we are capable of so much more than we realize. This is me gently placing my boot on your arse and giving you that extra shove :) Remember that BodyRockers never quit – tell Brutus to go fly a kite :)

Best,

Zuzana & Freddy

    Tried to post this from my phone and I don’t think it worked…
    This was my second HIIT workout in a tiny cabin in Kelowna.
    I brought my sandbag and skipping rope on this road trip, so this workout fit the bill.

    23 June 2011. Vs. 23 Aug. 2011
    Part 1
    13-8-8-13-8-10. Vs. 15-8-11-14-9-11

    Part 2 Skipping
    43-37-36-36-47-38-35-40 Vs. 53-41-44-37-40-42-51-52

    Part 3
    14-8-9-13-8-10. Vs. 16-9-11-14-9-11

    As with most of these workouts there are times when I want to just stop and rest – that would be Brutus…but I talk myself out of it, chanting in my head that “I can rest when it’s over”. Taking one interval at a time.

    Second time doing this workout. Happy with my results! I was using a 20lb sandbag. The last time I did this (March 27th) I had filled a backpack with canned goods. Not sure what the weight was.

    Lunge Chop: 14, 14 regular (old 22, 20 modified)
    Side Jump/Santana: 8, 8 (old 8, 8.5)
    Round Trip/Jump Squat: 10, 10 (old 9, 9.5)

    High Knees with Jump Rope: 56, 55, 55, 53, 47, 54, 45, 54 (old 52, 53, 47, 40, 46, 54, 40, 48) Beat myself!

    Lunge Chop: 14, 11 (old modified 24, 20)
    Side Jump/Santana: 7.5, 7 (old 8.5, 8)
    Round Trip/Jump Squat: 11, 11.5 (old 9, 9)

    I am attributing the lower score this time on the side jump/santana due to the fact that I was doing regular lunge chops, which worked the arms more than just leaving the sandbag on my back. That’s my story and I’m stickin to it! I am a sweaty mess either way.

    Another great workout, now on with my day!

    Did this 3 part workout today in my tiny cabin in Kelowna. The last time I did this workout was 2 months ago. Here is the comparison:

    June 23, 2011. Vs. Aug. 23, 2011
    part 1. Part 1.
    13-8-8-13-8-10. 15-8-11-14-9-11

    Part 3. Part 3.
    14-8-9-13-8-10. 16-9-11-14-9-11

    Brutus was knocking on the cabin door. I was chanting in my head “you can rest when you’re done”…that’s how I got through today.

    Cool down stretch. Post workout lunch then cool off in the lake.

    • Lisa

      Great job, nice improvement!

  • tee

    did this one today! missed it when it came out!
    I used 2 – 5lb dumbbells in place of the bag!  did the chops, and the around the world as if I was holding a bag,  but I walloped my head once when I realized I was going around the wrong way and tried to change it midstream!  oops lol!  the chops killed my shoulders!
    lunge chop – 17, 13    20, 13
    side jump & santana pushup – 6, 5     5, 5
    round trip & jump squat – 8, 8     8, 6
    high knees with rope (tripped too many times, and got distracted when my son walked through a couple times and was talking to me!)
    37, 37, 34, ?, 40, ?, 31, ?

    followed this one wth mr. vain and threw in a couple sets of tabata skipping!  I think I had puddles in my shoes!

  • http://www.YouAsAMachine.com Kat

    Just did this workout.  Felt like lifting something besides my own body weight so chose this workout from the archives.

    Part 1:
    1. 13 – 13
    2. 8 – 8
    3. 8 – 10 

    Part 2: 4 Minutes Interval Skipping. Haven’t been skipping enough lately so I kept tripping over my rope.  Averaged 40 high knees in each 20 second round. Amazing how quickly you lose it when you don’t use it.

    Part 3: 
    1. 14 – 13
    2. 8 – 8
    3. 9 – 10

    Plus 5 Pull Ups (forward grip) followed by full body stretch.

    Hi Tanyshka,

    I have similar situation, just started to work, traveling a lot, and I am not so regular on the workouts like before…but, every night before I went to sleep I tell myself that I am stupid, try to remember how i felt great when I was regular, and in the morning I promise myself that I would work out…and if I don’t I feel guilty…and then I start to make up some excuses like I am tired or something…but this workouts are short,and you know that we feel only better after?!…
    so maybe your motivation can be that you are not alone in this situation…today you have been my motivation, so if you can help me, maybe I can help you?

    good luck

    p.s. sometimes I yell at myself, like move your lazy butt or something..hihihi

    kisses to you all

    I too enjoyed this workout, and Zuzana you are my one and only trainer in the world. The ONLY trainer who got me to drop 2 PANTS SIZES since I started this Feb 1!!!! You should be equally proud of yourself as I am of myself!

    Side Jump plus santana push up: 4, 2, 5, 4
    Round Trip + santana push up: 4, 5, 8, 10

    I finally got around to doing this workout. my diet has been pretty bad this week, I must admit. I feel really bad about it, but the only thing to do is start over and keep on going, right? I had some greek yogurt after this workout, and I’m planning to eat lots of super foods today!
    Lunge chop-10,11,12,12
    Side jump and santana-6,6,7,8
    Around the world and jump squat-7,8,8,8
    I did the interval high knees with jump rope twice for a little extra push.

    So I hope the birthday celebrations went well, gutted I couldn’t join you.

    Yesterday I had an active rest day, lady hormones got the best of me. But today I went back at it. I woke up at 7am and lay in bed, Brutus trying to talk me out of it. But at 7.30 i got up, into my training gear and started the couch to 5k podcast again. I only got to week 3 the last time I tried this program and then lifestyle choices got in the way. So 8 months later I decided to pick it up again. Only I didn’t go back to week 1, I started from wk3. Now the last time I was doing this, week 3 floored me. But this morning I got through it like a breeze. I put it down to doing body rock for the last 2 and half months solid. So I did that, and then I have just done this work out. But Brutus, and worrying about the neighbors got the best of me. I completed part 1 and 2, but quit part 3. It is Sunday, and I don’t think my neighbors appreciate me jumping around on their ceiling. They just don’t get it! I want to have a banging body rock body! Surely they can put up with 16 mins of ceiling bouncing!!! Clearly not.

    So here is my reps for 1 & 2
    Lunge chop = 17,20 ( my make shift sand bag broke grrrr, had o change to modified version)
    Side Jump & Santana Push UP = 8, 9 ( i did these proper form, first time ever!)
    Jump Squat = 17, 24 ( again sand bag problem so modified version)

    Skipping = 49,46,47,49,47,50,52,40 ( again slightly holding back because of the neighbors )

    Then I finished off with 4 yes 4 unassisted chin ups!!!! I could only do one last week!!!!!

    Zuzana your the only PT that has got me so motivated and kept me at this, so yes, you are the only girl PT trainer in the world for me…

    New exercises yay! The last days were damn busy and I didn’t have enough time to do the last 3 workouts, so I will mix them like this: 1st round:lunge chop, side jump&santana push up, round trip+jump squat, 2nd round:5 mins of high knees and knee hugs, 3rd round:5 mins of the hot breakdance workout, 4th round:same as 1st round. I’ll be back with my scores!

  • Lena

    Did this one today. I had to modify the Lunge Chop…I just couldn’t get the movement right so I just did the Side Lunges with the weight steady on my back the whole time. I really like both of the other exercises, especially the Side Jump and Santana Push Up! And the High Knees with Jump Rope really were a killer!

    I had 8kgs in my sandbag. Here are my scores:

    1) Lunge Chop/Side Lunges: 14-14 / 16-13
    2) Side Jump + Santana Push Up: 7-8 / 8-7
    3) Round Trip + Jump Squat: 7-7 / 7-7

    Thanks for the workout Z & F. Looks like you took the day off today ;) Must have been a successful bday celebration! Good for you guys :)

    Booo, I am dying over here :D
    The skipping part was hell for me :D Before I bought a jumprope (I think it was in December), I never used a rope before, so it was pretty hard for me to learn how to skip it without tripping :D Since then I was skipping almost daily after workout, today was the first time I grabbed my rope after 3 weeks of not using it, and I was AGAIN tripping like crazy :D But I was more tired from it than before, when I was not tripping :D So I didn’t even count my reps for skipping, I had enough work with focusing on skipping and breathing (which is STILL my biggest issue).
    So here is my score for part 1 and part 3:
    1) Lunge Chop: 12-11 / 14-11
    2) Side Jump + Santana: 6-5 / 5-5
    3) Round Trip + Squat Jump: 8-9 / 9-9

    DEAD!!! :D
    I used only 4kg sandbag, 8kg was too heavy, I need to buy a rice bags already so the weight adjustment will be easier :)

    I am sweating like crazy again, but feeling amazing :) Happy I took the day off yesterday :)

    Happy Birthday, Freddy!!!

  • http://www.janetspreiter.com Janet

    A fifty minute good push on my hilly trail run to be “loose” haha.
    part 1:
    1. 11/11/13/12
    2. 7/8/7/8
    3. 6/8/9/8 my sandbag flew out of the sack on the first round so I had to stop, retrieve it, and stuff it back in.
    Part 2:
    oh man. Around 50 each time and just about blew my cookies.

    Then a few ab exercises to get closer to a Zuzana stomach, but I think have to starve myself (more) as well….life is so darn challenging! In two weeks I have only managed to drop 1.5 pounds….I swear fat sticks like lumpy crazy glue when you get older or is this just my excuse?

    I really gave it all I had! (Tummy still there winking up at me….)

      I tried to throw my sandbag behind me once on the first round I had to stop and regroup too lol

    Happy Belated Birthday, Freddy! Hope the evening was lovely and fun was had by all! :)

    I did this today. I’m using a kid’s duffelbag so it’s about the same size, but the handles do make cleans, and chops awkward for sure, but did them anyway!

    Round 1&3- 16,18,18, 15
    4,5,6,6
    6.5, 9,11,12
    round 2- I never count… I just go.

    Happy weekend to you all!

    this was a rly awesome workout!!! so close to skipping today, i got home at 4 and had to be ready to leave at 5:30 for the musical (i play in the pit band for the musical). So i procrastinated a while to see if i could get out of the workout for lack of time, but i told brutus to go fly a kite and did the workout!!!

    i only used a 15 lb dumbell, it was all i had for weight- still a huge challenge. scores:

    lunge chop: 13,11,14,10
    santanapushup/side jumps: 8,7,8,7
    roundtrip&jumpsquat: 6,6,6,7

      When I am procrastinating doing a workout (like I am right now lol) I remind myself that I always regret skipping a workout but I never regret doing one. Okay off to get dressed in my workout clothes :) Great job on your workout by the way!

  • Lvette #1

    I ate a piece of chocolate cake at 7am this morning for Freddy after doing this routine. I just had to sacrifices myself for Freddy’s sake. Now Freddy, you can handle the booze yourself. HAPPY BIRTHDAY FREDDY! Bodyrockers are in Harley tonight, you all have fun now.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY FREDDY!! May you have the best birthday eva! Wish I was there to meet you both, however if you’re ever back in Ontario, I’d luv to hang out with you both! Have a cocktail on me to celebrate!

    Can I also mention that my heart goes out to everyone in Japan, the west coast and across the region that has been effected by this devestating event, that I saw in the news this morning :(

    Okay, I just finished this workout moments ago and I am completely drenched! I so luv the feeling of finishing a great workout like this one, it leaves me with so much energy to do everything that’s on my “to do” list :) I had to use my home made backpack of 10lbs as the 18lbs I origionally had in it for other exercises was too heavy to swing around..next on my list of purchases. Funny how it used to be a pair of boots, purse or new jeans I wanted, now has changed into purchasing new exercise equipment, and I LUV it! It just means I’m one step closer to cancelling my gym membership and I’m soooo thankful to the both of you for that! Anyhoo, back to the task at hand…here are my scores:

    Part 1 & 3:
    Lunge Chop: 14,14 – 14,12 (10lb backpack)
    Side Jump & Santana Pushup: 7,7 – 8, 7.5
    Round Trip & Jump Squat: 11,10 – 8,8 (10lb backpack)

    Part 2 (with VERY high knees lol): 50,53,52,35,34 (I kept tripping on my rope – grrrr!), 42,44,49

    Pheeeeeew!!!! Done! Finito! Finished! In closing…this was great sweat….and once again I rate this workout 5 burpees outta 5! Have a FAB Birthday once again Freddy……..I am soooooo envious of all the BodyRockers that get to spend time with you two tonight in a social setting.

    All the best,

    Happy Birthday to you Freddy!!
    I wanna be at Harley’s tonight to meet everyone in person! :( It’s definately gonna be a crowd of fit, sexy Bodyrockers that’s for sure! No drunk burpees aloud! LOL! It’s so easy for one drink to turn into 5 & when your fit it hits you hard. Hmm, I wonder what’s gonna post on Saturday, a Hangover Workout? LOL!
    So, I just finished this and I still don’t have a sandbag yet. My duffelbag is twice the size and awkward but I managed to make it work with 20LBs of weighted plates wrapped in towels.
    Lunge Chop: 11/10/10/8
    SideJumpSantanaPushup: 10/9/9/9
    RoundTripJumpSquat:10/10/9/8
    HighKneeSkips: 60/57/56/56/54/53/53/48

    And Zuzana girl, “You Are My Only Fitness Trainer in the World!” LOL!

    I had to do the modified versions for the lunge chop and round trip/jump squat cause I might sprain my upper left back shoulder when practicing the moves :( ..prolly b/c my 15lbs backpack was a bit too bulky to swing around…I should’ve used a dumbbell instead.

    Anyway my scores:
    Lunge Chop (modified without the swing)- used 15lbs backpack
    P1: 20-18 // P3: 23-21

    Side Jump and Santana Push Up
    P1: 6-6 // P3: 6.5-6

    Round Trip & Jump Squat (modified without the swing)
    P1: 13-13 // P3: 14-15

    I didn’t count my interval skips – too lazy :P but I knew I pushed myself hard and still need to get faster with it.

    And of course, you’re THE ONLY TRAINER for me, Zuzana! Ever since I’m following your workout, I’ve progressed a lot, all thanks to your tips and workouts!

    Happy Birthday to Freddy! Have fun tonight with your lovely wife and other Bodyrockers at the bar! Don’t drink too much cause the next day would be another brutal workout :D

    Happy Birthday Freddie! Have an excellent night!

    I too, have a homemade sandbag, it’s a small duffel bag filled with 20 lbs of rice and tied up with resistance bands. It’s kind of wobbly so I think I’ll tape it up with duct tape like others have done to keep it from scraping my arms. My high knees still aren’t that ‘high’ with the rope, so I did them without, and manage in the 50′s. Scores:
    Lunge Chop 8, 8, 7, 7
    side jump/santana p/u 5, 5, 6, 5
    round trip/jump squat 6, 6, 6, 6
    Kudos to all you people who can do 16, 17 and 18 lunge chops in a go, it was all I could do to keep from bonking myself in the head!

    Today’s sandbag exercises could not have been done by any of the weights I normally use, so I decided to follow Katie’s creative idea and build my own equipment. I spent the whole morning gathering food stuffs from the cupboards (1kg brown rice, 500g red split lentils and 500g broth mix) and then going to the local Co-op for more rice. There were only 3 of the 1kg packages left in this tiny store, so I took them all and bought 3 kilos of cheap white sugar: that’s now the content of my ultimate grocery-bag. :-)

    Then I stuffed everything into a sturdy orange shopping sack, duct taped it around a million times and fitted two neat handles that I made out of 2 30x30cm rolled up scrap bubble wraps. The creation survived the workout and the handles were actually rather comfortable, so I’m quite proud of myself. I think my scores are not bad either (at least I know that I worked extremely hard, spitting my lungs out and sweating a pool by the end of the routine – I wish I could compare my results to Z&F’s though).

    1. Lunge chops: 14, 12, 13, 11
    2. Side Santanas: 7, 8, 7, 8
    3. Round trip jumps: 10, 10, 10, 10

    My roped high knees were: 50, 53, 51, 49, 50, 51, 50, 53 followed by sudden death and miraculous resurrection before the last part of the workout. I loved it.

    Dear Freddy, happy birthday to you, dude, have a great time tonight with your lovely wife and a barful of cheerful bodyrockers… oh my, what a spectacle that will be, that place packed with beautifully sculpted gorgeous people… Take pictures for us please, would you?

    This is my second workout for today, the Prague get together motivates me a lot:) So I just finished this with score:
    Part 1 & Part 3:
    1. Lunge Chop: 8 – 8 & 10 – 9
    2. Side Jump & Santana Push Up: 8 – 8 & 9 – 9
    3. Round trip & Jump Squat: 8 – 9 1/2 & 10 – 10
    The Tabata High Knees were crazy:) It’s really nice how one during that realizes that other exercises (round 3) can be faster as well. I honestly say I put everything into this workout.

    My morning workout was something I came up with yesterday, it’s a time challenge circuit which is repeated 3 times:
    1. Sandbag squat – 20 reps
    2. High Knees (rope) – 100 reps
    3. Reverse Push Up – 20 reps
    4. High Knees – 100 reps
    5. Core Split – 20 reps
    6. High Knees – 100 reps
    My time for this was 19:41 but I believe it’s not that difficult to beat it, I’m going to beat it myself when doing it again next time:)
    So that makes something between 1300 and 1350 High Knees for me today which is satisfiing:)

    Thanks for a great workout and see you guys at Harley’s, hopefully it’s not going to be too crowded so that I can find you.

    Hey guys,
    I was just thinking, because you’re already putting so much effort into uploading the videos and putting up the posts for us, asking you to put up instruction pictures is really too much!! So, I was wandering whether it would be possible for you to put up pictures only for the new exercises, since we already have pictures for the older ones?
    I’m sorry if I’m asking too much, I love your site either way, and respect and appreciate everything you’re already doing. I just wanted to make a suggestion, cos I think it would be easier, and we would have a nice collection of all exercises..
    Thanks again for everything that you do!! :)

    Hi Freddy and Zuzana,

    Only girl in the world? For you? I hope so! Happy Birthday to you Mr. Frederick James Light and many happy returns to the day! You folks don’t drink to much at Harley’s and I wish I could be there to personally buy you a Kahlua Coffee! :-)

    Anyway, remember the movie Boomerang were Eddie Murphy played self obsessed Marcus who has to have a woman with pretty feet? For some reason that movie comes to mind right now. :-)

    –Chris

    Hey guys, You took your sweet time uploading this:) I just realized you made us work harder for Frederick’s piss up session at Harley’s bar for his birthday. I thought this was going to be easy until I scrolled down and saw your lovely 3 part sessions with a 50 second interval period. I am finished I am resting my heart rate before my cool down. These are my scores;
    Part 1 and Part 3.
    1. Lunge chop 18,18,16,16
    2. Side jump and Santana push up 7,8,7,8
    3. Round trip and jump Squat 10,12,11,12
    Part 2. 4 min high intensity interval skipping – knee highs
    8 rounds of 20 second intervals 50,47,44,35,47,44,45,48
    All I have to do now is stretch then enjoy my cold shower:)
    Love what you do, have a great night socializing with the lucky, wonderful, fit, stunning bodyrockers that turn up to celebrate with you:) XoXo
