Thats where we come in, you don’t need to have a gym membership, expensive trainers, or know a special handshake to BodyRock, you just have to get involved and give your body and lifestyle the kick in the ass it needs to get your heart pumping & your metabolism burning.

    I should not have gotten on the scale today.  ) =  Feeling very discouraged.  

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

    This was great! I did a mix of the advanced and intermediate workout.  I used a 38lb lump of ankle weights for the weighted stuff, but dropped down to 19lb for the second round.  I then did a second round of the stand up and jump ups and the walk over push ups and tuck jumps because I felt like I finally understood how to make those good.  Oh–I did snowboarders for legs/plyo instead of the low jacks/knee ups.  I was having a hard time witht he stand up ones until I realized they’re kind of like a turkish jump up, and did it like that instead–which basically just means the weight is over my head.  That allows better momentum to then stand up.  Doing it with the weight to my chest put INCREDIBLE strain on my lower back.  So if you feel that–put the weight up above.   

    walking push up and tuck jump: 8-6
    push up and pike ball rolls: 9-7
    snowboarder: 26-24
    superman elevated push ups: 13-15
    turkish jump up: 5 (38lbs)-6 (19lbs)
    sumo knees and half burpee: 4 (38lbs)-7.5 (19lbs)

    then:
    turkish jump up (19lbs): 10
    walking push up and tuck jump: 7

    I did the fit test followed by this workout. I’m beat. My scores were similar to my last fit test some weeks ago but a couple of scores were lower. My workouts have been sporadic lately, due to illness but it shows how your fitness level goes down with inactivity.
    Keep it up guys!!

    1) Walking push up & tuck jump 5, 5
    2) 3 way plank jump, clean & press 5, 8
    3) Low jack & v abs 12, 15
    4) Superman push ups 9, 11
    5) Stand up & jump abs 7, 6
    6) Sumo knees, half burpee 5,6

    Tuck abs out & raise 19
    Reverse crunch 24
    Touch toes 16

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1037690594 Karen O’ Reilly

    Modify it for what you have got. Use a chair, a table, broomsticks. I don’t have a sandbag, I put weights into an old handbag. :)

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

      Yup! It’s the BodyRock way!  Most of my equipment is homemade–just improvise.  The bottom line is–there’s no excuse!  If it’s too easy, then there’s ALWAYS a way to make it harder.  If you need suggestions, ask any of us, Alecia.  :)

    Ooooh I did the intermediate version today and it rocked!!! :) I enjoyed it very much and my arms are killing me! :D My inner thighs are still sore from the “thigh killer” exercise from the We Found Love wo which I did couple of days ago, so the advanced version will have to wait a day or so more. :) Here are my scores:

    1. Walking Push Up 7, 5 (counted after each tuck jump)
    2. 3 Way 6, 6 (no ball so used 5kg DB)
    3. Sumo Squat + V Split 9,11
    4. Supergirl Push Up 11, 12
    5. Get Up + Jump (5kg DB) 7, 8 
    6. Sumo Knee Lift + 1/2 Burpee 4, 6 (2x5kg DB)
    + Ab bonus
    + Butt Squeezes
    + 20min HIIT Skipping 30(10/30)

    Now I feel more like me, which is brilliant! ;)

  • http://www.dcneuro.net/ Dr. A. R. Scopelliti

    Perhaps I am kidding myself trying to do the advanced routines at 53?  I am still sore from yesterdays workout.  This was difficult and I had to modify.  I did one arm reverse pushups, (essentially a one arm pull-up) in place of the L pull-ups, clean jerk and presses with a 16kg kettle ball in place of the sit-up and clean and presses.

  • Chris Lee

    i will do this one tonight.  this morning i did this:

    db snatch x10 ea side(40lbs)
    25 pushups
    run hard 400m
    x5 for time (23:00)

    and an hour or so of jiu jitsu this afternoon.

    • Chris Lee

      towel drag pushup 25-16
      pushup & pike roll 13-14
      side plank thigh lift R 27-28
      side plank thigh lift L 24-26
      low jack & pull up 7-7
      stand up abs & jump 7-7

      v-sit & toe touch 24
      toe touch & rvs toe touch 8
      ball plank/core twist 21

      i used my trx instead of a ball for the pushup/pike roll and the ball plank.  it worked ok, but it was awkward trying to get my feet in and out of the straps.  for the drag pushup, i was working on concrete, so i put my feet in a stainless steel food insert.  it was pretty noisy, but it worked!

      • Gerri Lee Schafer

        hahaha…and what does the bottom of the food insert look like now?

      • Anonymous

        OMG chris! are you kidding! didn’t it get all scratched up, and didn’t people come looking to see what all the noise was? lol

  • AmBoaksy

    WOOOOOOTTTT!!!  I did the advanced; maybe not as well as Lisa-Marie, but I did it!!!!  I know I’m a few days behind, but I’ve been at a conference with no internet so couldn’t keep up w the Challenge.

    P/U w Dipstation and Ball (Don’t have an equalizer): 6/5

  • MariaBjørgJepsen

    Fun workout :) I had to modify a little. I have a full carpet on my basement room floor, so I couldn’t do the drags – such a shame, they look fun and killer! I will try in the living room. I have no pull-up bar, so I did 2 Low Jacks and 1 Knee Up on the dip station as 1 rep. I have no medicine ball, so I did 4 elevated knee tucks and 1 push-up as 1 rep. I still had a great sweat!

    1) “Towel Drag” aka. 2 steps & 1 Push-up: 23-22.
    2) Elevated Push-up & 4 Knee Tucks: 12-12½.
    3) Side Plank Inner Thigh Leg Lift, L (chair): 32-34.
    4) Side Plank Inner Thigh Leg Lift, R: 30-32.
    5) 2 Low Jacks & 1 Knee Up: 12-14.
    6) Stand Up Abs & Jump, 15 Kg: 10-11½.

    Later I did “Fit Hotties Rock”, a FUN short and intense sweat :)

    Love, Maria

    • MariaBjørgJepsen

      Ab Bonus: 
      1) V-Sit & Diagonal Toe Touch: 64.
      2) Touch Toes Sit: 15 (sets)

      hey maria,  I believe if you put paper plates under your feet it will work on the carpet.

      • Mary Lou

        Ooh, fantastic idea tee! I’m gonna try that, shiny plastic plates might work too…

      • MariaBjørgJepsen

        Thanks a LOT, Tee :)

      Maria, you can do a towel drag on carpet if you place your feet on paper plates or any smooth flat plastic plate/disc.

      • MariaBjørgJepsen

        Thank you so much, Jess :) Great idea!!!

    I’m wondering what we can do if we don’t have a dip station or an equalizer.  There used to be a modification for it, but it hasn’t been said anymore, and I don’t have enough money for a dip station or an equalizer.  Please advise :)

      • Gerri Lee Schafer

        oh, gonna do Z 6 in the am….might put the vest weight down and wear it too….

        • Anonymous

          4 rounds plus 10 pulse jumps & 8 side burpees!  could hardly breathe! lol  It was kizmet, decided to watch Ricardo on the sidebar and next video up was #6 so put it on & did it!  It was a sign! lol

        • Chris Lee

          i did z#5 today – 5rounds + 2 curl/press. then i did a 10k run. i am going to take a page out of your book and start mixing things up a lot more. i like what you said about listening to your body. lately i’ve found that many of these exercizes are tough on the knees, esp the weighted lunge motions, so i’ve been doing other stuff to make sure my knee stays strong and un-injured.

          • Gerri Lee Schafer

            nice job on Z 5…that was a tough one for me..been over a year since I did weight training…curl/corkscrew press…but it felt good

            and yes, too many exercises focusing on one body part almost every day doesn’t make me a happy camper…it’s all push ups or all over head presses, or all step ups….variety is the key to happiness and health…I’ve been mixing it up with Maria’s WO and my own, Jess is great too, Kyla, Vivi, etc…so many to choose from…I’m taking the next 2 days off…13 in a row of BR…need a break…my weighted vest is making me very aware of my quads…LOL

  • ulla

    Both cartilage and muscle damage, in different places, so not resulting from the same incident? If I were you, I’d give it a rest. To me, this sounds like overtraining…
    I don’t mean to be a spoilsport, but you might want to talk to your doctor before you decide on anything. If he gives the all-clear, the obvious solution would be swimming, since it’s a full body workout, a terrific fatburner, and easy on joints, musles and cartilage. 
    I’m sorry this sounds so negative :-(

    Sorry, no medications here, healthy as a horse, just a little slow sometimes! lol

  • http://www.janetspreiter.com Janet

    Thanks, Michelle T.  Those side planks are tough!  I am waiting for my dip station…any day now!  I am hoping it will be easier than the coffee table.

  • BodyRocker Ellie – Team Canada

    I did the advanced one today! Holy crap it was hard! :) ))) I loved it! I didn’t have a pull up bar so I did a reverse pull up
    instead. Also, I used a bench instead of the stability ball. The towel
    pushups were awesome!!!! Loved them. Side plank lift – on elbow and off
    bench. Stand up abs – 15 lbs dumbbell.
     
    1) Towel Drag Push-Ups – 4.5, 6.5

    2) Push-Up & Pike Ball Rolls – 6, 3 ( I got interrupted arrgghhh)

    3) Side Plank Inner thigh leg lifts – Left Leg – 20, 20

    4) Side Plank Inner thigh leg lifts – Right Leg – 20, 20

    5) Low Jacks & L Pull Up – 4, 4 ( I did 3x low jacks + 3x one leg RPU = 1 rep )

    6) Stand up Abs & Jump – 6, 6

    Abs Bonus!

    1) V Sit-tall & Touch – Left & Right Alternate – 9.5 alternating both legs = 1 rep

    2) Touch Toes Sit & Reverse Touch Toe Reach – 6

    3) Ball Plank & Under Knees – 15 ( painful!)

    Thank you thank you thank you for those awesome triple workouts that we can choose from! 

    Love ♥

    I have been doing these “slider” type workout moves with 2 small (very soft) towels under my feet (on tile floor) for over a month now.  Tons of moves – mountain climbers, pikes, lunges (usually one legged)… all sorts of stuff.  Much easier on my joints (to me anyway).  And that first bonus ab move you did Lisa – I have been doing that one for at least a few weeks (legs not so far apart though) – with the opposite arm starting overhead you really utilize the entire core this way (plus this takes any emphasis away from my hip flexors)!

    Hi guys, I’ve been browsing this site for a month now and I finally decided to get up my ass and do one of the workouts, but I’m a bit puzzled. Take today’s beginner (that’s me!) workout: it says that it should be completed twice. Does that mean for example squat jumps for 50+10, followed by squat jumps for 50+10, or does that mean the entire circuit x 1, followed by another entire circuit? 
    I know this question might seem a bit stupid, but I’m a beginner and I would like to get it right, so I’d be grateful for any answers :)
    Thank you and here’s hoping that BR helps me (and all of you) change for the better:)

  • Mary in San Diego

    Hello. I did the advanced workout but modified.

    Foot Drag Pushup, since I have carpet and towel wont slide: 19/  14

    Pushup on bench/ Pike on ball: 9/  8 I lost some time because it took me a bit to get setup!

    Side Plank/ Leg Lift Left. I did these on forearm off of bench while letting top leg raise up. 23/  29

    Side Plank/ Leg Lift Right: 29/  30

    I don’t have pullup bar so I did the Sumo Knee and 1/2 Burpee from intermediate workout: 9/ 9.5

    Stand up Ab/ Jump with 20lb bag. Ok so I am unable to stand up from laying down position with both feet on floor. I had to tuck 1 knee under to stand. I will need to work on that!  6/  6

    On the ab bonus:

    V sit/ touch Alt: 33

    Touch Toes sit/ Reverse Toe Touch: 13
    Ball Plank/ Under Knees. Ok so I started on the ball, but I lost stability so I switched to couch. I only got 10 of these in. 

    Unhappy with myself, but I refuse to do anything less than the advanced workout.  I’m stubborn like that. Hope you guys have a good day.

    what would be a good replacement for the L sit pullup and low jacks? I do not have a pullup bar in my room.

    • http://moveeatlivewell.blogspot.com/2012/01/jessicas-beginners-guide-to-bodyrocktv.html JessJN

      Low jacks & pike presses?  The pike press would hit your lats, shoulders, & chest.  Maybe 5 low jacks, then 5 pike presses.

  • anina cowie

    Hey there
    I’ve got Osteoporosis in my knees and am unable to do any of the jumping exercises is there any way you can give alternatives for those of us with knees that are hindering any workout progress?  I am visiting the physio everyday and am now able to go for a run.  Any tips would be awesome.
    Cheers

    I’m so sore today from the pyramid workout yesterday that I decided to go for the intermediate. Even that was too much for me and I struggled through it. That pyramid workout has totally wiped me out. I’m taking a break to recover tomorrow and resume on Saturday.

    Hi freddy!  I was wondering if you could keep all the videos with the same name.  I like to search for workouts and if I wish to do the beginner workout or the intermediate workout say 2 or 3 months from now, their titles will not show up as they don’t match the title at the top.  thanks a bunch!

    hey!

    I did Fit Hotties Rock Workout after work tonight!  http://www.bodyrock.tv/2010/09/07/my-workout-and-score-fit-hotties-rock/  good sweat!

    Lisa, I like that you’ve included some old favourites!  turkish get ups, supergirls, pikes, the jacks and pullups, and even the hands up pushups – they are really hard to not cheat on.  now to figure out which ones to do & when to do them!  ha ha!  thanks.
