We all know that Zuzana’s routines are tough. Marines do them for Pete’s sake. But what is it like for newbies – people who maybe don’t have a lot of strength or flexibility. People who haven’t exercised in years – or even decades? I can’t tell you guys how many people have written in to tell us that their initial reaction was one of skepticism. “I can’t do that it’s too hard – it’s impossible”… but those same people found the minerals inside to just give it a try and now are full fledged BodyRockers. We have started to include more modifications for beginners to help out new BodyRockers and those of you that don’t have access to the equipment that we use. Get creative – make these routines work for you. If you need more motivation then check out the pictures and inspirational stories of your fellow BodyRockers. The positive and supportive attitude of BodyRockers everywhere is here for you :)
In other news we will be relaunching the site in approximately 3-4 weeks from now. On Thursday our developers will be walking us through a private guided tour of the new BodyRock.Tv homepage and community sections and we are very excited. The relaunch was originally scheduled for July 21st, but sometimes with these types of big developments things can get behind schedule. We are very eager to launch, but we are also taking the time to make sure that it’s right the first time :) What this means for you guys is that soon you will each be able to create your own profiles, create and join groups, friend fellow BodyRockers, have your own photo galleries, and start your own blogs right here on our site to share with BodyRockers all over the world – all for free.
I also wanted to take a minute and say a big thank-you to all of the BodyRockers who have bought Zuzana and I a cup of coffee. Your kind support of our efforts here is very much appreciated.

Get your gear for this workout here:
This is the workout that I did today. It is a 12 minute long interval circuit training made up of 4 different exercises. The explanations of the exercises, including variations for begginers and those of you who don’t have the exercise equipment that I use, are in the video above.
You will need to set your Interval Timer (as shown in the video) for 12 rounds of 10 seconds and 50 seconds intervals. Your goal is to complete as many reps as possible during each 50 second interval and write your reps down during your rest intervals.
The circuit is made up of the following 4 exercises and you will go through it 3 times (1 time through the circuit is only 4 minutes)
1. High Knees with Jump Rope (my reps: 121, 120, 115)
2. Reverse Push Ups (my reps: 21, 16, 16)
3. Ugi Pop (my reps: 35, 34, 33)
4. Ugi Squeeze & Hip Thrust (28, 28, 24)
Reverse Push Up on Dip Station
For those of you who don’t have the equipment that I use, watch the video to see a substitute for this exercise.
