    Did this yesterday!  IT was harder than the last time I remember.  I must have really gotten in the zone because I didn’t realize how spent I was until it was over.

    I started with the reverse push ups, ending with the squat so my boyfriend and I could stagger.  35lb sb, walker for the dip station.

    reverse push up (straight legs/bent): 23 st-10/10-10/10push up squat press up: 7.5-7-6dips (unassisted/one leg assisting):  12 un-9/2-3/7sandbag sit up: 10-9-9front squat: 23-25-22

    Hey BodyRockers! So nice to be back on the site. I haven’t worked out since November 8, 2011. My mother had a couple of heart attacks that week and caused my boys and I to leave AZ and head to Austin until the 2nd of December. I started to workout again just yesterday and am continuously looking to reach the goals I set for myself! I plan on shredding bad habits and fat, by February of next year – one year from when I started BodyRocking! I have to say that being away and coming back to new faces was kind of exciting. Then, I watched this video with Zuz and it broke my heart! Zuzana, you are forever in my thoughts and prayers for all the inspirational talks and workouts you’ve so generously shared with me! I hope that the next time you shed a tear ‘because the sun is so strong’ that it will be tears of joy and contentment with all that you and Freddy accomplished! Especially by all the lives you’ve touched and continue to touch through this site! What a way to show the love you have for any and everyone! From my family to yours, we love and pray for you guys and wish you the very best God has to offer you in this time of your life! And remember, there will always be a Brutus lurking close behind those who strive to be positive and stronger than ever! Peace, Love, and BodyRock!!

    • Bohdanam

      That made me cry, I feel the same way. I did my workout today and I was thinking how much I miss Zuzkas leadership , jokes and professional and positive workouts.
      Good luck Leilany with your mom and getting on the track again ;)

    Unless I’m prepared to do a brand new workout in the morning before work (or have time after work) I plan to do workouts I’ve done before. So I chose this one for today (11/29/11) which is one of my new favorites. Did this for the first time on 11/15/11 and I managed to beat or meet my scores in every circuit except for 1 rep in the last exercise.  Used 25 lb SB.  Feeling good!

    SB Squat:  24, 22, 21
    R-PU’s – 25, 23, 24
    SB PU, Squat and Press – 6, 5, 5
    Dips (assisted with toe touch) 25, 26, 28
    SB Sit Ups:  12, 13, 12

    And a burpee for Erin.  Hoping her recovery is coming along well since her last update.

    hey guys!  finally did this one as I was saving it until I got my dipstation!
    I have subsituted for over a year!
    First thing I noticed is you guys are tall!  my feet aren’t anywhere near touching the ground!  ha ha!

    they made it adjustable so you can make it not so wide but not so you can lower it, I wonder why?  I’ll have to recommend it to ultimate body press!  anyhow it will make me work harder as I can’t touch my feet to the floor!

    my “sandbag” (small duffel bag) weighs 20 lb and I didn’t use it on sit ups but did on other two exercises.

    front squat – 22, 17, 18
    reverse pushups – 18, 14, 12
    pushup clean etc – 4, 5, 5
    dips – 10, 12, 10
    sit up – 13, 13, 13

    reverse pushups were cool to do on the dipstation, I usually have been doing them off a pullup bar with my feet on a high stool, so probably a 45 degree angle, the dip station was a little easier (still hard!) so I could get more reps in without my hands dying and the fear of falling!  lol

    dips- got the first one then as I came down put foot down slightly near the bottom and on way up as I can’t reach the ground near the top!

    did my burpee for erin!
    thanks!

  • Samanthina

     Thank you for the advice,Peter:)

  • ZoeRocker

    I agree with Zuzana about working out being like brushing your teeth. I would go crazy also if I didn’t do it. This workout destroyed my arms! I couldn’t even do the sit ups with my “sandbag”. Here are my scores:

    1. Front Squat w/SB- 25,18,17
    2. Reverse Push-Ups- 23,18,17
    3. Push-Up/Squat/Press-Up- 5,4.5,4
    4. Dips- 14,12,11 (mostly assisted)
    5. Sit-Ups- 21,21,24 (I twisted to the side at the top of each sit up to feel it in my obliques)

    + 5 healing burpees for those in need of a little boost of happiness :)

    Wicked routine Sea, you’re doing wicked!!! LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!!

  • Mary Lou

    Wow this one was tough! I started with straight let reverse push ups and they are brutal, I only did about 7 before switching back to bent knee ones. My sandbag still has 20 lbs in it and I put my feet up on a stability ball for the dips. I got most of the way down, but not quite 90 degrees…
    squats: 21, 17, 17
    rev p/u: 18, 15, 18
    p/u, squat, press: 4, 4, 4
    dips: 17, 15, 15
    sit up: 10, 11, 12
    and 5 burpees for Erin!

  • Anonymous

    did this yesterday. I had to make modifications to the exercises since I don’t have a sandbag or dip station, but it was still intense. I also did 5 minutes of skipping afterward for an extra calorie burn. :)

  • Annalise

    Hi folks.  Here’s my scores from yesterday.

    Front squat: 19, 18, 10
    Reverse Push Up: 9, 8, 8
    Push Up Squat PRess Up: 4, 4, 4
    Dips: 12, 16, 18
    Sandbag Sit Up: 8, 8, 8

    I don’t have a dip station so I used the broomstick method for reverse push ups, and did tricep dips off the edge of my bed.

    Thanks,

     Hi,guys I have a big problem.Please,if  someone can give me an advice.My mother and father are threating me that if i continue to do these workouts and don’t gain weight,they’ll stop my Internet connection.I ‘m not on diet,i eat healthy and various foods in order to gain muscle but it’s very hard for me,because i’m usually skinny.I’m 160 sentemetres   tall and 101 lbs.Last year i was 121lbs.and after losing the weight i have had hormonal problems and drinked drugs.The doctors told me i’ under the norm and to gain weight.How to gain muscle,without getting fat?But if i stop doing these workouts maybe i’ll become fat.Moreover these workouts really help me not only pfysically,but also on mental level,I feel more energized and inspired.It’ll be a nightmare for me if I can’t do these workouts,because they’re amazing.And not only they,my new healthy lifestyle makes me feel more  happy and proud with myself.And that has happened thanks to  Zuzka,Freddy and their wonderful site.
    So,please guys help me,every advice will be appreciated.
    Yours,Siana.

      Hey Tammy! I think I remember in a workout waaayyy back when you said you were from Guelph, Ontario, is that correct? :)

      • Anonymous

        yes I am!! and you?

  • Natella

    What modification can be for the “dips” if i don’t have the dip station? 

    • tee

      How about tricep dips off a chair

  • tee

    you know what dana, it probably won’t work as “most” people don’t want to look around, they want an immediate answer.  that is why they ask zuzana to constantly put the answers in her videos.  then someone complains about how long the videos are getting!
    an example of this is I put up a post giving lots and lots of suggestions on alternatives for these moves, it’s in this stream and yet how many people are still asking for alternatives.  also you will see someone post their scores with the alternative written in their post and someone will write right afterwards asking for an alternative.

    the answers are there for those who look!  but I am amazed at how many people have no imagination any more,  I have never needed someone to show me how to modify something to fit what I have or to fit my body.  I would have been injured over and over in both my exercise and my work because I’m only 5ft1 and I cannot do things the same way as the 6ft guys, but that does not mean I cannot do the same things!

    Today I revisited Ab Blitz workout and managed to beat my PB! :) I wanted to spare my legs for a change cos they’re a bit sore, but I wanted to do some cardio as well, so this one was perfect! I really like One Leg Bridge and Toe Touches I’ll include them more often in my leg workouts. :)
    Can’t wait to see what you have prepared for us though! :)

  • Bodyrocker_Audra

    Hey Zuzka,  Thanks for the motivational coffee talk :)    You made me smile when you teared up :)   I can tell your passionate about it and it’s much appreciated really!  Your workouts are my daily maintenance as well.  Even if I don’t feel like it or I’m low on energy I still gotta just get dressed and do it.  Although I must admit, I still have to talk myself into it every now and then lol.  I always feel great afterwards and that afterglow euforic effect is what I desire.  The energy I get feels soooo goood afterwards haha!

    5/ SB sit up 10-14-13   my SB was too heavy to lay down and lift from behind my head…lost some time switching around to my lap then laying down and lifting…kept my arms up and straight the whole time…couldn’t get any rhythm for this one

    no skip today, bruised foot from work

    Also check out the warm-up & cool-down routines posted on the site.  You’ll feel much better if you do them before/after each workout.  There are tabs at the top of the page that say “stretching & cool down,” & “warm up.”

    They don’t say it much these days, but Z used to follow most of her workouts with moderate jump-roping intervals.  I usually do 12-20 min of 10 sec rest/20 sec work 4 min intervals after a workout.

    I did this workout yesterday.  I wasn’t feeling 100%.  I was fighting a little cold (that has now become worse…ugg).  So my score probably aren’t as good as they could be, but I still pushed to the max.  I felt a lot better for a while after wards.  I love Body Rock!

    Hi Zuzana my name is Jen, I have been a fitness freak since I was 16. I had found your website around 6 months ago but I had not been pushing myself into starting the workouts. To be honest my motivation has not been the best lately and has been decreasing for a year, everyday that went by without a workout, I had felt displeased and angry with myself. Your video today was just so encouraging, full of motivation and passion; I had shed some tears with you in this video, as I understand the feeling of having that total commitment and passion for fitness and keeping healthy. Your website and all the other body rockers you there have inspired and exhilarated me to finally begin your workouts. My long time goal that I have; and will achieve, is to become a fitness instructor and nutritionist and it would`nt make sense if I was not in shape for when this goal becomes my reality. SO I had finally achieved today`s workout, =D it was a killer but I pushed to the end, I feel exquisite!! 
    I like to drink a protein shake that you have provided to us as one of our supplements and then I eat a delicious green salad with a tin of Tuna as a protein booster. =)

    Thank you guys for all your hard work and encouragement!

  • Amy

    any suggestion if I dont have dip station?

  • Vivi

    Goustifruit (I have a problem to reply you so I post here my answer for you) don’t give up so easily !!! hahaha I have a solution for you !! :p
    For the dips you can do them with a chair !! Zuzka had explained this in a very old one.
    You’re back to the chair and put your hand on the sit. You legs are extended and you do your dips !
    En français ce sera peut être plus clair. Tu te mets dos à l’assise de la chaise. tu mets tes mains sur l’exterieur de l’assise droite et gauche de la chaise. Tu etends tes jambes comme un reverse push up (donc soit tendues soit rapprochées). Et tu fais tes dips comme ça ;)
    Je fais comme ça car je trouve qu’on les travaille mieux qu’en version beginner avec la dip station ;)

    Allez maintenant vas-y !!! Rock your friday !!

  • guest

    Hi! you just do the workout once a day :) and thats all that Zuzana does too :) they are amazing workouts!

  • BodyRocker_Bonnie

    Thanks Sean, Freddy & Zuzka.  That was tough!!  Thanks for your coffee talk Z.  Sharing these workouts with everybody is a big part of the motivation for me, its just so fun.  Used 30lb SB.

    SB Squats:  22,19, 20
    R-PUs: 24, 21, 20
    SB PU, Squat & Press: 5, 5, 5, (Wow – LOVED these!)
    Dips: 20, 21, 21 (light toe touch assisted)
    SB Sit Ups:  10, 9, 10

    Followed with a time challenge to do 100 knee raises on the dip station:  5:05 (alright!! last time it took me 5:27) and 4 min interval skipping (8rnds / 10x20sec). 

    • Gerrilee Schafer

      good scores…see you are skipping now….keep it up and you will be amazed at the improvement it makes to your conditioning

      • BodyRocker_Bonnie

        Thanks Gerrilee!  I agree, I find when I do extra skipping I feel so much better and stronger.  I think I did more tripping than skipping today though.  Practice, practice, practice.  Have a great weekend:)  

  • GoustiFruit

    I didn’t do this one – and won’t – because I don’t have a dip station… Usually it’s not a problem because I can set up two tables to do reverse push-ups OR dips, but I can’t do *both* reverse push-ups AND dips in the same workout as I need too much time to move my tables from the “dips” configuration to the “reverse PU” configuration ! Sniff :-(

    • Vivi

      SI si tu peux faire les dips sans dip sation !! :p
      Tu te te mets dos à l’assise d’une c hiase; tu mets tes mains de chaque côté de l’assise et tu etends tes jambes comme pour les reverse push up (donc comme tu veux les jambes tendues ou rapprochées) et là tu peux faire tes dips en baissant tes fesses auprès du sol.
      J’espère être claire !!
      zuzka avait montré cette variante dans un très vieux workout. Du coup je les fais toujours comme ça car je trouve qu’on les travaille très bien !!

      Allez hop !! enfile tes baskets et ROCK ton vendredi !! hahaha

      • GoustiFruit

        Ah exact, je n’avais pas pensé à ça ! Bon dès qu’on a un jour de repos, je rattrape mon retard…
        (j’ai fait autre chose hier et aujourd’hui je viens de finir Wicked Things. Enfin, je l’ai foiré, j’ai oublié qu’il fallait insérer les Jump Lunges entre chaque exercice :- Ouh, c’est la petite forme moi en ce moment…)
        Encore merci pour l’astuce ;-)

    • Becki

      Modify!  Do dips on a chair, hands on front of chair, legs out in front of you, tricep dip! Use the tables for your reverse push ups. There’s always a way to do the workouts…just get creative! :) I have even done push ups instead of reverse push ups when I’m in a hotel or traveling. Don’t give yourself an excuse to not do the work outs!!

      • GoustiFruit

        Thanks, that’s exactly what Vivi said, in French ;-)
        I didn’t do this one but it doesn’t mean I didn’t do anything: I did a workout of mine and beat my own best :-D But now that I have a good alternative, I’ll do this workout as soon as possible (that is, whenever we have a break here).

  • Hege Vindstad

    I have a question… Is there a risk of getting “overtrained” doing these short yet super intensive workouts? I am aiming for doing the workouts every single day, as far as it is possible for me to do them.

    And so far I haven’t felt much pain in my muscles doing BR workouts other than the regular GOOD muscle soreness, but if I go to the gym and use fitness equipment there and train quite intensively, I can barely walk the day after because I get these extreme pains in my lower back…
    I’ve been warned by others not to exercise every day because of the danger of getting overtrained. But I’m not really sure what that term means exactly, and what the warning signs are… Other than waking up and barely being able to turn around and get out of the bed, off course! :-P
    It might be a stupid question, but is there a risk of “breaking down” your muscles by bodyrocking?
    Should everybody, even beginners aim for doing the workouts every day, or is it better to work your way up gradualy to work out 5-6 or even 7 days a week?
    I know we should be listening to our bodies off course. But some of us, I think, – at least I can speak for myself on this one, tend to ignore these signals if it takes two-three days without any training, when training has become such an important part of our daily routine! The two-three days of rest barrier is my maximum “allowed” time to rest… If it slipps outside this barrier, I lose my motivation and feel that it gets hard to get my butt moving again.Anyways, thank you Zuzka for another great coffee talk! I look forward to doing this workout too! I just have to do the “Good Feeling”-workout first later today, seing if I can beat Jess’ scores :) PS: I miss seing your scores Zuzana… Can you please post them? :)

    Whew!  just finished and now am cooling off outside in the autumn air.  Will probably go for a moderate jog, too…

    35lb sandbag.  Broomstick and two chairs. Switched to mods on reverse push up and dips, as noted. 

    sb squat front: 27-24-24
    reverse push up: 17 straight leg/1 bent-20 bent-19 bent 
    sb burpee: 5.5-6-5.5
    dips: 6 reg/7 foot on ground-3/11-3/9
    sb sit up: 13-12-11

    Also, I followed Zuz’s instructions and did NOT put the sandbag all the way behind my head back on the ground in between reps on the sit up.  Doing it this way made my reps higher, I’m assuming.

    Happy Thursday!!!

    Good one guys.

    Freddy and Zuzka,

    Can we still get either Zuzka’s or Jess’s scores posted.  I find I sometimes will slack and not push myself hard enough ( I know I am embarrassed to admit this weakness).  I like to use Zuzka’s scores to push myself since she is at a different level of fitness than myself.  

    Thanks so Much:)

  • Dopple

    Wow another deadly workout, I am smashed after that one! Great work Sean!
    Btw you and Jess make an awesome team, think you two should do more work outs together, great dynamic!

    Keep bodyrocking!!

    Good for you Sandtiu!! The best of all is your tried and look at you now, a new bodyrocker!! I´m so glad when anybody starts to change their lives for the good. I hope there is someone out there telling themselves ” I can do this” They did it and now they stick around for more.

    hi guest
     
    what I do is plan my workouts for the week, if zuzana has posted a schedule it is easier,  I know that weekdays I have very little time so I pick 12 – 15 min workouts and I write them in my log, then I check in and if there is a new workout that I wish to do in there, I slot it in for the next day.  so if I need to watch the video I usually do it the night before, If there are any new moves I might do a couple practices then. so when I get up in the morning I get my log out and any equipment and start warming up, while either watching the video or reading my log.  then do the workout, a short cooldown, usually while I do some chores, then I take a cold shower in case I’m still sweating, and off I go.  usually done in a half hour.  on weekends I schedule the longer workouts.

    I just wanted to ask if you could post Zuzka’s or Jess’ scores?
    It’s kinda hard to compete with a guy like Sean.. :) It’s great for me to try get as close as possible to his scores, but I’d like it if I had girl’s scores to compare to. :)

    Anyway, my scores are:
    1. Front Squats 21, 15, 13
    2. Reverse Push Up 14, 15, 15

    A rip snorting beeeestie indeed, Sean!  I didn’t plan to do a Bodyrock today so I did a hard 50 minutes of hill running, then I saw Sean sweating bullets and couldn’t resist the challenge.  My sandbag is 35.5 lbs, which is just over 27% of my body weight.  I figured I’d count myself lucky if I survived two rounds, but I managed to surprise myself!
    Sandbag squat (all the way down!): 16-12-16
    Reverse push up with broomstick: 10plank+11 bent knee – 10 plank+12 bent knee – 10 plank+10 bent knee
    Push up squat press up…sometimes it was hard to flip the bag over my forearms; I got the rhythm going 
    later!: 4-5-6
    Dips on barstool armrests (toe assisted)11-15-17
    sandbag sit up (like these!): 8-10-10
    Then I went paddleboarding little waves for about an hour and a half.  There was an absolutely amazing rainbow the whole time we were out.  Now I need to go in the studio and paint what I remember of it!!

        Yes, no doubt you could make your first cool million on this, Chris.  Would you like a photo of my cunning barstools as a starting point?  That would necessitate royalties, of course ;)  We could “cheer” each other on in both exercise and life-enhancing beverage chugging exercises, taking turns at each position as the “spirit” moves us.  Wot say?

  • Svenja R.

    For like two weeks now I managed to be active every day. And even after just two weeks I don’t understand how it could ever be not a part of my daily routine. I’m familiar with bodyrocking now for some time but now an then I always used to completely fail with that new healthy lifestyle and I got back to not working out and eating junk. Even if just for a week or two.. it completely got me out of the routine. 
     
    But yeah, I feel like I can do this now. If not myself, who/what else could ever make me happy, right?
    And really.. this site is about changing who you are to the better, about changing your life. So why would us bodyrockers bother a change (in this case of the site) so much? 
     
    And since I feel like the discussion about the change is getting a little tedious, I feel like writing what I would normally write to you now: 
    Zuzka, nice to hear you again :) and you’re looking awesome as always. And why are you so tanned :o white me is getting jealous ;) and yeah.. I’m gonna do this one now. 
    And I don’t wanna leave anyone behind, so.. Sean you’re looking awesome as well. especially sweating lol. 
     
    oh, and I wanted to share a quote I recently came across: “You can suffer from discipline or you can suffer from regret”.. that’s what keeps me going right now. I’m soo ready to suffer from discipline!!

      I just picked up “Eat Right for Your Type” after reading some of your blog. I look forward to seeing how eliminating my avoid list will impact my body.  I can’t seem to shake 5 pounds despite portion control, consistent workouts, etc.  I’m supposed to avoid chicken, corn, & wheat to prevent weight gain.  I eat chicken all the time…at least every day…..for years!  Thank you.

      • http://www.youasamachine.com You As A Machine

        That’s really neat. I will be very curious to hear about your findings. After about 3 to six weeks of completely cutting out those foods you should have your answer. It may seem overwhelming at first since you are accustomed to eating certain foods and then suddenly eliminating them, but rest assured – as you noticed in the book- there are many beneficial options to fill your plate. It is a great individual experiment. Of course, it is logical to presume that an elimination diet in itself will have an effect on your system regardless, so this should be a long term experiment.
        As an aside, there are four of us in our household – each a representative of a different blood type. I am the only one who is very strict with my food choices, but I have to say that having accepted that each of us has our differences our meal times are much more calm. No more: eat what’s on your plate kind of language. My son who is 9, has learned to voice when he is actually full and has learned to sense which foods make him feel best. My daughter, at 7 is learning to stay away from foods that make her tongue feel strange and avoid the foods that cause eczema. It’s very lighthearted at the same time…we joke about, oh, I can’t have that it’s not my blood type. But rather than instil a strict regimen I effort to let the kids figure out which foods make them feel good and energize them for the long haul. They already know how eating too much candy makes them feel lousy so they are learning to binge on it less and less.I think it’s really important for us to get a handle on how we consume food and teach it to our kids right from the start. It is a fallacy to assume that kids can eat whatever they want. No one can.

    I’m pretty sure ppl are losing motivation due to a lack in their nutritional needs. It’s definitely not the lack of exciting workouts. Not everyone can eat like another (Zuzana) & still maintain + gain during this type of regimen. Words of wisdom & words that you may not believe but I’ll say them anyway…..

    People EAT!!! & yes eat healthy & more of It also supplement protein, vitamins, & various minerals into your diet. I’m a Fitness Trainer & Specialist in Performance Nutrition your body has to rest, heal & can only heal fast/properly w/proper nutrition.

    Putting on lean mass (muscle) is not easy, burning it up (catabolize) when you don’t want to is! If your body can’t get the energy it needs from food to live it will eat up muscle for energy & we don’t want that. I could go on & on peace & love peeps!

    Also, is “gassed” a term that means tired?  I’ve never heard that word used with reference to working out.

    Zuzana, I love how you say “vertebra by vertebra”!  I will do this tomorrow, vertebra by vertebra!

    I wish you could tell us what can use instead of a sand bag or the dip station. For those of us who have gyms, what tools could we substitute? 

    • http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage.asp?id=VW_STEPH Stephanie

      If you read over the comments, a lot of people talk about what they used, or new ideas they’ve had to help fellow Bodyrockers.
      For the sandbag you could try a backpack with some heavy things in it, cushioned by a towell? Or dumbells? Or just use a weight in general, like a large bottle of water, whatever you can find! :)
      For the dip station, I use two dining chairs backed up to perform the dips. For the reverse pushups i use two chairs with a brush pole between them to pull up on. I also recently got a pullup bar so now i do reverse pushups standing on a chair and leaning almost horizontal, using the pullup to pull up and do a reverse pushup. 

      Have a look around, I’m sure somebody will be using something that you have and/or could put together to sustitute :) Goodluck! 

  • Julia

    Jess and Sean are doing great. I accept them fully as the new hosts.
    I’m still motivated and hopefully others also will be soon again.
    So, keep bodyrockin’.

    Love to Zuzanna, Freddy, Sean, Jess and especially Erin.

     P.S. Sean, I have 35 pounds in my sandbag, how much do you have? You always seem out of breath when using it..

      great scores!

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

    We did this today with my husband, you can tell which exercises are his strengths and which ones are mines from our scores. The dips were KILLING me.

    Overall I’m shattered to have come across yet another Sean exercise that I couldn’t do entirely properly. I started thinking that I could do ANYTHING (having mastered the one leg squats, ninja jumps, pull ups and dive bombers), but man… you push us to a different level. I really enjoy the challenge though! So, scores:
    Front SB squat: Craig: 28, 17, 17 | Sünci: 25, 22, 24 Rev PU: C: 20*, 30, 28 | S: 27, 22, 21 SB PU+squat press up: C: 4, 4.5, 4.5 | S: 6, 6, 6 Dips: C: 13*, 10*, 9* | 14, 11, 10 SB sit up: C: 12, 13, 16 | S: 15, 15, 15

    * stands for proper form in case of the reverse push ups and dips, in which exercises one or both of us had to switch to the easier modification eventually (or right at the start :-P ).

    Hi Alina,
    I know exactly what you mean. I had problems with my health months ago and I had to stop bodyrocking too. Bodyrock is like a drug, high intensity training makes you feel so good, that’s why it’s difficult to stop bodyrocking. Be creative, search for other kind of training, like pilates that needs slow motions and core strenght, use light weights, jog, ioga…For this while the most important is your full recovery. Take patience, take a break. At the end you will see it’s no so bad (but I know you are feeling right now like hell). Be positive and try to learn something of the experience.
     If sometime you could finish a Zuzka workout, you surely can deal with this.
    All my good feeling to you

    I never comment, but I have been a lurker on this site for years. I used to do Zuzka’s workouts about 3-4 times a week until a year ago when i let life get in the way and stopped exercising completely. Yesterday I came back to the site to start working out and get my life and health back.It was humbling how little i was able to do. I am back to not being able to do a pushup!
    I of course was shocked like many people about what was going on with Zuz and Freddie. But I always felt they had our backs with this site and this situation would be no different. Seeing Zuzana talk about motivation today was perfect timing for me! I swear it feels like I was meant to come back to bodyrock now. Of course, I love watching Zuz do the workouts, she is an inspiration just looking at her! But I think we can find inspiration everywhere, in the new people they bring on board, in our equipment(i plan on making a sandbag very soon), but especially in ourselves.
    But my only suggestion would be post your scores too, Freddie and Zuz! I know you guys are still doing the workouts, so put your scores up!! Your amazing scores help inspire and make us feel like you are there working out with us.
    Thank you Zuzana and Freddie, and everyone at bodyrock! There is nothing like bodyrock.tv. I tell everyone about it. I wont desert you guys again!

  • rawr

    Love you, Zuzana!  Good to hear from you again.

  • Sass

    Can you guys please post Zu’s scores please?  It’s nice to be able to compare my scores with hers and that fact that she’s a girl helps too.  Please.

  • Anonymous

    Hi Natalie,

    if it feels to intense for you, maybe try to change the intervals. For example this WO: not 15 sets of 10/50 intervals but 25 x 10/20 (12.5 minutes) or 25 x 10/30 (16.5 minutes). I never tried by myself but I think it can work for you.

  • Dana

    I guess I’m in the minority here. I actually really enjoy watching fellow bodyrockers lead videos and I’d like to see a diverse group of people leading in the future. I think it’s fun, refreshing, interesting, and keeps me curious!  I think it’s very motivating watching a more “average” (not that bodyrockers are average by any stretch) person pushing hard and making themselves vulnerable. I learned A LOT from watching Jess’s first video. People gave her a hard time but I found that is served as a teaching moment for me. It showed me that as hard as I think I, personally, am pushing, I can crank it a little harder. Jess, Sean, Z, Freddie, I like ‘em all!  I’m also an extremely adaptable person so maybe that’s why I enjoy seeing this site evolve. As far Z, she is my fitness hero hands down!  I think it’s perfect to begin and end each video with her inspiration and tutorials. That’s all now I’m about to start this beast….

    Zuzka and Freddy, 
    Just wanted to congratulate you for appearing in Spanish magazine. Not only that, but finally they put Zuzka on the cover! :) That’s awesome you guys, I’m so happy for you. I’ve read the article, it’s great!

    Hope this is only the beginning, and there are a lot of covers and articles yet to come! :)

    Zuzka was nice to see you.. 
    Awesome workout. Love the Sandbag pushup Squat and press combo, was really enjoyable exercise. I can’t imagine how you manage to do 12 rep, you must be flying  through them. I could only do 5 rep in each round. Just because i love them after i finish i did 50 rep of the combo. Flowed by 8 min high knee skipping. Done for today.

    Have a nice day all..

    with 8kg SB
    1.  SB Squat:  19,16,14 ( i could have done more) May be next time..
    2. Reverse  Push: 20,29,20
    3. SB Squat and press: 5,5,5
    4. Dips: 10,10,19 (assisted)

      Yeah the combo looks very nice, I do not have a sandbag I use a bag with the disc of the weights inside so I can not do this one yet,  I will change it a bit. 
      I hope I can get my sandbag soon, I love this kind of investments.
      Have a nice day!

      • Anonymous

        Yes, very ture, a nice investment. Last year, right after i cancel my Gym membership i bought the dip station. The sending price to Europe was more than  the price of the dip station but it was all worth it. After my  home made SB distorted, i bought the ultimate SB (power pack) and it was worth the money. Love both equipment. The UGI ball to expensive at the moment but i’m thinking to make one Ugly ball.

  • Samantha R

    I hope you’re ok Zuzka….I’m sure we’ll all get our mojo back soon, change is a big thing for some people everyone just needs time to adjust.

    Well…today was supposed to be a weights day for me (boooooring) so I did this instead and filled my sandbag to the max so it was about 34 – 35lbs – when I got to the sit ups I found it was too heavy really but persevered.  My numbers suffered; next time going to stick with 12k I think.

    1.  SB Squat: 27, 20, 20
    2. Rev Push: 27, 24, 22
    3. SB Burpee: 5, 6, 6
    4. Dips: 12, 14, 14
    5. SB Sit Up: 7, 7, 8

    Gosh! people stop whining!!! can’t you see how you disappoint Zuzka????? stop thinking only of your own butt and if you can’t just go and kick it with the killer workout… 
    Please Zuzi don’t feel upset!!!! it’s so hard to see your tears! you are so sweet like a child and like a sister for me so I just can’t stand your tears! It’s so ridiculous how selfish people can be…
    It was a real pleasure to see your coffee talk and a tutorial video!!!! Be happy!!!

    Ahah, watching Zuzka then Sean, you have the scientific proof that there is a huge difference of sun between LA and Kingston :-D Hum, though none have suntan marks :-p Where I live the weather is at least as bad as in Kingston so I envy you Zuzana… but I miss seeing your eyes…

  • tee

    hi sean!  I think you’re trying to kill us!  ha ha!  looks like an awesome workout!  going to bed now, and thursday is my busy day so will probably do this friday!  Time enough to psych myself up for it!

    stolen lulu pants!  ha ha!

  • tee

    people who don’t have equipment – make something!

    sandbag – backpack, gymbag, duffel bag, reuseable shopping bag, pillowcase, camping tent, large purse, carry on luggage, dumbbells, barbells, water bottles, waterjugs, watercooler bottle, a cardboard box, your child  or a pet! 
    you may fill it with – pebbles, rocks, sand, rice, sugar, tin cans, clothing, books, toys, water bottles, dumbbells or weight plates, blankets, shoes

    dip station – reverse push ups -grab the underneath of a table or desk, pullups, pullup bar, door, wall, treadmill handles, 2 chairs with a stick between them or any two surfaces with a stick, an old persons walker, monkey bars at the park, maybe your shower bar, the railing on your deck or porch

    dip station – abs raises – pullup bar, corner of two counters, 2 stools, between your washer and dryer, kitchen counter and kitchen table, backs of 2 chairs, sit on edge of stool or chair or counter lean back, r just do the off floor

    dip station – dips – a lot of the same things as above, or do tricep dips off the edge of a chair, or your couch, or even off floor with legs straight out

    ugi ball -medicine ball,dynamax ball, backpack full of clothes or weight, balance ball, or stability ball, bosu ball or make your own  – put sand in ziplock bags or even balloons wrap with blanket or pillows, or stuffing and stuff it into some sort of casing, even a pillow case, tie it off there you go!

    gymboss timer – look at a clock with a second hand , 10 seconds and 50 seconds are easiest or 10 sec and 20 sec,   countdown timer – kitchen timer or oven timer,  plus there are many apps online you can use

    this should be enough to get people thinking!

      :-D Excellent post! Thanks, Tee.

      Hm, I have to admit, I never thought about raising the bar and not just work out with my light weight cat but fill her up with pebbles before – great idea, I’ll try tomorrow ;-) .

      On a serious note though – I made ALL my equipment until recently (when I
      purchased a proper dip station), my sandbag is still a packed groceries
      bag and my UGI ball is my weighed sleeping bag, and they all work
      perfectly well. Here’s an old workout where Z explains how to use the chairs with broomstick to substitute the dip station:

        ha ha ha!  It’s funny when I wrote that I thought it sounded like I might be telling people to put stuff in their pet or in their child!

        For some reason I thought by posting this people would stop asking what they could use as a substition, but I guess not, they just don’t want to read!

    love you zuzana, so glad to see you again!  such passion!  thank you for being in the video! 

    I don’t understand people saying they have a lack of motivation just because you’re not in a couple videos working out!  how many have you got here? 600  I’m sure that they haven’t done all of them,  or even watched all of them, really?  must they never repeat one to have motivation?  they should be developing their own motvation.  no? 

    anyhow  I personally was hoping to see you just because we worry about how you are doing with this,  as we hear freddy in the new videos, he’s been writing the openings,he’s inteacting with sean and jess,  and then we don’t see you and I think everybody starts panicking!  forgive us,  most of us just want to know you are alright.

    thank you for the update on erin last time!

    blech. e-hugs would be welcome right about now. (i'm done whining… i'm gonna go to sleep and see if i feel well enough to workout tomorrow)

    Just watched the video. Really chimed with me. These workouts are a part of my life now and I feel weird if I miss one. I have no problem with motivation because this regime makes me feel good and strong. The thing about hours at the gym is a great point. I have never seen the need physically to join a gym, I can see the social aspect of it though. The short workouts at home really fit my life well.

  • http://www.facebook.com/kendra.oberhauser Kendra Lee Oberhauser

    I love you guys so much. :)  Z, you were so freakin’ adorable in your coffee talk I forgot that you’re a “friend” who doesn’t know me; I bet you’re a lot of fun to hang out with, and a really wonderful person and friend.  And I also love Sean and Jess and the unsung hero Freddy, rocking the camera and cheering everyone on.  I love that I can spread the BodyRock love out to more people.  I also find so much inspiration among the community here; I have some demons I’m battling now and I really look up to this community and all that it represents.  I’ve been searching through past posts and finding wisdom among everyone’s comments that help me on my own progress.  So thank you!

    And I love you guys so much. <3 

  • KBear Ellie

    Why are the videos now between 15 and 30 minutes long? They used to be much shorter and more animated and meant the whole point of a short, intense workout fit into your day could be achieved. I am finding I don’t even watch the video, just get the breakdown and go.

    Additionally, Sean, Jess, Freddy – you’re all adorable and lovely. We all love you guys. Having said that, Bodyrock for me, and I suspect the rest of the bodyrockers saying they’re losing heart, means Zuzka. She’s a brand and she’s inspired tens of thousands of people to work out with her. I don’t think it’s about not liking change, or losing motivation. It’s about how brilliant Zuz is at motivating, at producing a video with technically correct movement throughout, about her animation and passion. For me, the videos lately are falling short – I really don’t want to be negative because I adore Bodyrock.

    I just think the negative feelings from Bodyrockers being expressed as lack of motivation or dislike of change is just a manifestation of this and I don’t think anyone should feel guilty for feeling like that. It is what it is. I think I’ll probably go back to old videos if I feel my passion flag.

      I agree, and I actually did watch an old one after reading this, what a brilliant idea, dont know why I didnt think of that ;)

    • tee

      I actually love longer videos, I like feeling like I’m with everyone and I get to know them a little.  the only videos I’ve ever seen over 20 minutes were the real time videos!   you don’t have to watch the whole thing, there is a little bar on the bottom that you can just drag it forward until you get to the part you wish to watch!

    • Lila Alejandra ♥

      Finally some one gets it!! That´s the way I think as well Ellie. Have a great one :)

  • Brian

    The latest workouts look great, but are frustrating for me, as I do not have any equipment. I’m hoping to get a sandbag for Christmas. I realise you guys need to earn money to keep the site going, so these sponsorships are important, but any chance of doing an equipment free workout once every 2-3 weeks?

    • Isabelle G.

      I never bought anything, I managed to do each and every workout with what I found in the house!  And… guess what ?  I’m in the best shape of my life!!  Even without the exact same equipment!  Bodyrock is also about getting more… creative !!

      I have a home made sandbag too.  I just use a canvas zippered bag and I put rice in it.  Its 10 pounds now, and its worked well for me…I’m actually ready to add more weight to it.  I can do all of the exercises they do on this site.  I decided to invest in the dip station though.  I can’t make one for my self because I’m very tall.

    This one looks awesome!!  Can’t wait to try it guys!!
    Zuz, amazing seeing you in the video….you look PHENOMENAL, as per ushe but wow you almost re-inspired me all over again.  And I must say, I LUV how you say “vertebrae by vertebrae”….sooo cute, had to replay it, luv the accent!  Hahahaha!
    Sean, hilarious that you still have your security tag on the pants.  That’s only happened to me once before but it wasn’t with clothing, it was with a wallet!!  :/  I think I’d lose it if it happened on my LuLu’s!  The store there is awesome, such a good variety….I luv it.  And I JUST bought a purple LuLu Yoga Mat today….how awesome you guys have the same one!  I was torn between the turquise one and the purple when but clearly, I made a good choice!
    Freddy, amazing job with the videos, as always!!

    Can’t wait to train and do this sucker! :)

    Hi, Bodyrockers!

    It’s been a while since the last time I posted here. I just want to say several words about motivation and support Zuzka in her coffee talk.

    I just want to point out that I was a faithful Bodyrocker for almost 2 years. But the last 3 months were the worst of my life due to the problems with my health. My doctor said that I should give up all the intensive training once and for all. I cannot describe my feelings at the moment. Even now when I am writing this comment, tears come to my eyes and my heart just rips apart. I thougth it was the end of the world – no Bodyrocking, no pushing hard to your max level, not waking up every morning and planning the workout – it is a disaster. I stopped checking the site, because it was too painful for me to see all these workouts and know that I am not able to join them. Maybe it may sound ridiculous to some people with real problems, but just imagine that Zuzka is being told to give up her training, I think she can understand my state right now. 

    So, I decided to post right now, because I noticed all these comments about losing motivation because Zuzana is not in there. And I am saying – stop whining!!! It is pathetic. I am so jealous of you guys (in a good way) that you can do these workouts, and you are complaining of such little things!!!!! Be grateful for the opportunity to move your body, to push, to exercise! Get this passion! Find this motivation from within, you have this gift of the healthy body and complaining about the fact that some tiny changes have been made to the site and you are losing motivation is just childish and unfair, first of all, to youself!

     I thought I will bodyrock for the rest of my life, I had passion, I had desire to do that every single day. But now I know that all we have is only today, we do not know what the tomorrow has for us. I still have the workout planned that I wanted to do when all this happened. But I promise I will come back! I will find the way to get back to Bodyrocking again! I do!

    Enjoy your training and be thankful for your health!

    With lots of love to all the Bodyrockers around the world and with big THANK YOU to Zuzka and Freddy for the amazing 22 months of my bodyrocking, 
    Alina.

      Sorry to hear that.

      Are you sure the advice is correct? I can think of a handful of rare neurological conditions and some congenital disorders which would stop someone exercising. Pretty much every other chronic condition(I take it this is what you are alluding to) is helped by regular exercise. Sure, the person may be limited in their capacity by their condition, but exercise usually improves things. It also strengthens the immune system. Should you maybe get a second opinion?

      Love your determination. You show that it’s all about passion, desire and determination. And discipline. If you are determined to come back, you will. :) I think that if you like bodyrocking, you don’t have to stop just because you cannot push yourself to ringing in your ears afterwards – we all should work out at our own intensity and abilities, right? I think that you should choose your new intensity that you can cope with and do your squats, push ups and lunges the way you can handle them.
      Doctors should know that even the slightest moving can help recovering. I believe that ‘our’ Erin is walking around the hospital sometimes. That is moving and it can certainly help her recover. I hope you’ll find your way to work out and be satisfied! :)
      Best!

      Alina, thank you for your story!  I’m sorry you’ve had this setback, but I can tell from your determination that you’ll be back!  I’ll send you my very best when I send out my burpee love.  You’re a true BodyRocker, through and through.  <3

      so sad to hear that! But I’m sure tour story will inspire those who gave up. I wish you health and joy!!!

      Hi Alina – I so hope you manage to find a way to be able to include some exercise, I’m sure with your determination you will;)! I’m just commenting because in 2009 I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis and two very poorly vertebrae in my neck causing spinal stenosis affecting the right arm and hand. I was told to stop exercising immediately and to accept that I would have to change my life.  I stopped exercising as instructed (I used to run a lot), however, my pain got worse and I began to get muscle waste and was all lopsided!  I got a second opinion from another neurologist who said that I should try and keep as much muscle as possible to support my neck.  The running was causing pain because it was long continuous jarring on my neck and arm so I started Bodyrock in Oct 09 and I feel very strongly that I have managed my pain more effectively and my symptoms have been alleviated as I have stronger muscles so support my poorly bits.  Perhaps it might be worth a second opinion?? Sending you hugs.  Sx

        wow! you are amazing. that’s inspiration for me!
        keep it up!

      • Alina

        Samantha, thak you for your story!

        Your story is a true inspiration for me and it is not the first time you support me, so big and sincere thank you to you from me!

    • -ALL- Bodyrockers RULE! :D

      Alina, I think I would get a second opinion when it comes to what your doctor told you. I have a couple of things I have to be careful of when I exercise, but the doctors have all universally said “Exercise!” Maybe you could do beginner versions of the exercises to cut down on the level of intensity? I don’t know. But, I do know “where there’s a will, there’s a way!” You obviously have the will, so I know you’ll find a way. Best of luck to you!

      As for motivation, or lack thereof… shouldn’t the desire of these folks who envy the capacity to even bodyrock be enough? Think of Erin, so brave and positive. She’d love to be bodyrocking. I’m pretty sure a lot of the people complaining about lack of motivation don’t face the challenges she does. Be valiant, be fearless, haul out the ‘nads and tell Brutus to take a freakin’ hike! :D Go BodyRockers!!!

      Dear Bodyrockiends!!! (Bodyrockers + Friends)

      Thank you so much for this support. I actually felt intimidated to post anything, as I am not doing BR right now. I felt like I do not belong to this community any more… But right now thanks to you I want to post, as I think I can help newbies and people who do not have any equipment with my advice, because I do not have equipment at all, but I always think something up.

      My condition is not so serious, I just cannot do the intense workouts that include weight lifting and too much jumping. I still exercise, because otherwise I would go crazy… I do pilates, yoga, walking. I just really miss the feeling of driving through the workout with all your power… But I trully believe I will get there again. It was just too sudden change, so I got really depressed. I will incorporate the exercises or maybe I will try to follow the workouts in slow version with some modifications.

      I promise you guys that as soon as I do the whole BR workout, I will post and tell you all my story! I just want people to get the main point of my message – do not pay attention to the trifles, just live, love, exercise and really appreciate every single minute of this life. 

      • Svenja R.

        Alina, I so hope that the doctor was wrong and that a second opinion will be a little more optimistic. And thank you for bringing to my mind again what bodyrocking is about. That it’s not just about weightloss or looking sexy in a bikini, but that it’s about a drive and a way of life. I know we’re saying that all the time here, but sometimes you just have to remind yourself about it. 

        So I really hope that you’ll get better and some day be ready to kick our asses again ;)

      • Mo Stewart

        Thanx for sharing Alina. With my pain condition it hurts so much to move but I am trying to bodyrock everyday now. I need to build up endurance and strength. Most times I have to modify an exercise but I do to get maximum intensity. . .I truly hope you get back into bodyrocking. I will push through the pain with ya. . .I am pushing through mine, it hurts but I still do it. . .this community is great for support. . . . . kudos for posting!

      Just wow, Bodyrocker Alina!!! I have a little bit tears in my eyes!!!! And it´s so true: people should be so thankful for their health – it´s the important thing in life!!!!
      in my opinion, you are still a bodyrocker!!!! Don´t forget that :) ))
      Keep it up, girl :) ) you´ll rock it!!!!

    • Patrick

      nice perspective alina….thanx!  have you seen those people that do yoga for years, amazing shape!

      Hi Alina,
      Keep a positive attitude and do your best :) . Most important thing is to be healthy. You could still try the workouts, not at the same level of intensity though ( maybe no jumping, no weights ). 
      I understand you so well when you say that the healthy people should consider themselves so lucky for it and should workout and take care of their bodies. It’s so much easier to workout when you’re not in pain. 
      I wish you all the best and get better ! You’re a bodyrocker at heart and you’ll find your way to what you love !

  • eva

    I love Zuz’s energy and voice right now, in such an amazing place, so deep so rich, decomposing matter that will become the fertile soil from which all new growth will come. I am wondering date and year of birth?

  • Butterfly-352

    Thank you for always finding the words to keep us motivated Zuzana….. There is times when we forget about the strength we have within and the feeling we get by putting all our effort into something that makes us better. Its true it feels great after completing a workout and you feel exhausted but accomplished! :)
