Week 2 Day 5 – Your Best Body Ever – BodyRock Burn & Sculpt & Flow Workouts

Hi BodyRockers,

We have reached the end of week two – keep focused! At this point you might be experiencing some resistance and inner dialogue coming up with all manners of excuses and reasons why you should quit. Seasoned BodyRockers call this voice of doom “Brutus” – it’s that little voice in your head that whispers caressingly that it’s ok to skip workouts and eat hot fudge sundaes for breakfast. Don’t listen. One of the most common mistakes people make this far in is to give up completely – drive off of the rails and quit – all because they miss a few training sessions with us. Please don’t fall into this trap. Something is always better than nothing. Even if you miss half of the workouts – don’t give up. Every month we will be working to bring you new challenges, and every month you can work up and accomplish that much more. BodyRocking is not an all or nothing practice – all we ask is that you do what you can, use the modifications and variations to make it work for you, and give your best each day. Support each other and always choose kindness with yourself and each other. You need to really start giving yourself permission to be proud of yourself – even if you were to do just 1 workout with us is cause to feel empowered. When is the last time you really patted yourself on the back?

Congrats on your success so far – every rep, every breath that is directed at reaching forward to your dreams is a victory.

Best,

Freddy

    I’ve always found it hard to resist sweets as well, but what’s helped me the most was to limit the refined sugar in my diet, and replace it with healthier alternatives (example: foods sweetened with honey, “real” maple syrup, dried fruits, etc). Your body craves what you feed it, so be very mindful of how much processed sugar you take in. ESPECIALLY high fructose corn syrup, almost every commercial brand of food has this listed in the ingredients… so check labels often!!! And as for the chocolate, try switching to the dark kind (70-75% cocoa content, or higher), it contains less sugar but more fats and fiber, which digest slower and can feel much more satisfying. I used to HATE dark chocolate myself, but now I only ever crave the 85% kind (I find it so rich and filling).

    Last bit of advice, if you can’t find treats in the store (like cake, cookies, etc) made with pure ingredients and no additives/chemicals… make your own right at home. There are so many simple recipes out there to try, and making your own goodies can feel VERY rewarding. :)

     i want to know with wich workouts i should start ??
     Do i do a schedule with this workouts for the week? 
    Or I should just start with the one is posted here today,  there is an order or not ?? 
    Sorry im just a little lost 
    Thanks for your time!
    Have a nice day

  • Spreiter

    Managed to trash my shoulder so had to take it super easy…been losing strength by the day…grrr!  Wondering if I am pinching the nerve as I didn’t do anything traumatic??
    Got through the two rounds but not a very stellar performance.  Just stoked to be able to do it at all.  Added a few ab things at the end.  Feeble but there nonetheless.  Thanks for the challenge, as always.

    Good advice Jennifer! Everything in moderation!!

    Not bashing–just as someone who has been BodyRocking since the “old” days, it’s just not what sets BodyRock apart.  It’s like opening a vegetarian store and selling meat in the back.  It doesn’t make sense.  I didn’t mean to bash at all, it’s just that I (emphasis on I) do find standard weight lifting, isolation exercises, etc. to be boring.  Not speaking for anyone else but myself. :)

    do whatever you wish to do!  if you prefer the written out one, then do that, if you prefer the video with the extra exercises, then do that! :)

    hi xpeacelovecali! I found this video on how to make equalizer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bi08wIM3-Uk&feature=player_embedded it was on this site http://www.lovingfit.com/fitness/fitness-equipment-on-a-budget/ there are other ideas of things to make for exercise equipment there as well. youtube is a great resource, I also like this site for making all sorts of things http://www.instructables.com/ also 2 kitchen chairs back to back also works very well for a lot of people, or sometimes I used 2 stools, (a hand on each seat for dips or knee raises) and monkey bars at a local park also work well!

    need any other ideas – just ask! :)

  • Bodyrocker_Audra

    The good thing about doing a repeat workout is seeing your improvement in reps. 

  • 1Ivana

    Hi there,

    so for past month or two I was adding a butt workouts to my Bodyrock workout, one to two times of week..not just butt bonuses, but real long only butt workouts…you see, my genetics are so..I can have big wide butt but for that sexy round I have to work hard (my mom who is big,and has a real big behind don’t have volume, just wideness)…and mine got so tiny after I lost all my fat…so I had to do something…and now I can see some results!!!! of course it hurts…yesterday I killed it, but it was so much worth it…

    Also I have a new project on my bedroom wall and I will post picture as soon as I finish…

    I have just 2 more weeks before my big GOODBYE..as every summer…off to the wildness ..:)))

    kisses to you all

    • Gerri Lee Schafer

       have a great summer Ivana

    • Bodyrocker_Audra

    5/13/2012

    Here’s what I did tonight:

    2 rounds (100 reps per round)
    20 push up + toe touch 
    20 1-leg side hop + side kick
    20 1-leg plank walk outs, alternating legs
    10 around-the-world lunges per leg (1 rep =  1 frontward lunge + 1 side lunge + 1 backward lunge)
    10 per side: side plank leg lifts

    + 200 rep glute bonus (all lying on side) do all 100 reps on one side, then switch to the other side.
    20 large side leg lifts 
    20 pulse side leg lifts
    20 side knee to chest
    20 kick outs
    20 inner thigh leg lifts

    I’m pregnant, so that’s why I haven’t been strictly following the posted workouts like I used to.  I’m following the guidelines that Kate Rita wrote (search “Kate Rita” in the search box on this site).  I’m in my first trimester, so I’m focusing on not overheating (which means jumping, skipping rope, & HIIT style workouts raise my heart rate too much).  I’ve been walking & stretching more, & do rep-based un-timed workouts.  At some point (if I feel like I have enough time) I’m going to start a blog about my attempt to exercise (with modified Bodyrock moves & other things) up to the end of my pregnancy.  I haven’t been able to find any great online resource about that topic, so I’ll just write about my experience in case there’s anyone else out there who is interested.  

    Good night!

          Good luck Gerri! I always like to read your posts, so you will be missed here. I have found also that doing Zuzana’s older workouts (and new ones) gets me feeling more “worked out” than these new routines. I am going to try some heavy weight lifting after I recover from knee surgery which is next Tuesday. Take care!

  • http://twitter.com/IronFistGirl Tara Fox

    I likee that this week had lots of mash ups and repeated exercises.  I found that  I really had to push myself so much harder and certain parts of my body just wanted to give up so bad but I pushed through and defeated Brutus lol It was a great challenge this week but I wouldnt recommend it every week.  Loving the new Bodyrock Sculpt, I love using weights and its a nice little touch at the end of a workout.  Im not really into yoga altho ive been forcing myself to do some of the flow, i just dont feel the same about it as I do with HIIT training.  I wish I was into it as I would love to be able to do some of those moves.

    I forgot to say that I liked the name of the workout!  but are you sure its not a sexy avenger?   tee hee hee!

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

    This workout is a mashup of the last 2 weeks’ workouts that I’ve done recently, so I think I’ll be finding another one for today.  I’ve been having a lot of fun finding some surprisingly tough ones in the archives.

    PLEASE re-think the “sculpt” program!  These exercises are boring old exercises that everyone does at the gym.  I came to BodyRock because I don’t like the standard weight lifting isolation exercises.  Where are the full body BodyRock exercises?  For example, thrusters instead of just shoulder presses.  Reverse grips pull ups instead of bicep curls.  What about manmakers?  Those are an EXCELLENT full body exercise that would work really well with the BodyRock regimen.

    I LOVED some of Sean’s kickass full body workouts that targeted parts of the body.  There was a chest and tricep workout once that just about KILLED me (LOTS of diamond push ups).  There were also some great shoulder and leg workouts.  But they were full workouts.  More of those please!

  • Anonymous

    I have a little tiny suggestion that would make the workouts the best (at least for me:-) – less exercises in one workout. Learning the exercises, remembering the movements and their order is very time consuming which I would rather spend on doing the workouts. I would appreciate if there were just lets say 3 – 4 exercises. I think they would do the same good work as your 8 exercises. What do you think? Thank you!!!

    • Anonymous

      Hi to Kristy555 and anyone else who finds this too many exercises,

      you can always split the routine in two, pick 4 for one and 4 for the other, then do them 3 times each to equal 12 minutes each and then you have 2 routines for 2 different days! 

       I don’t think freddy and lisa marie object if you don’t do exactly what they put out, always feel free to change the routines to suit you!  I, myself quite often split up combos as I cannot do them fast enough to get a good workout from them.

    This mash up is similar of Knockout summer which one I did today, I find.

    she just said that she had hurt it a little, when she was doing the kickover/back lunge knee raise.  but they just haven’t made a new video since, just these repeat/mashups so I was just wondering if her foot was still bothering her?

  • Anonymous

    Hey guys, just checking on Lisa Marie, is her foot quite hurt? as this is not new, I hope not.  good mix though!  you do show a couple extra moves in the sculpt that aren’t listed though, so I guess people have the option of doing them or not!

    I really enjoyed Teshia’s flow video!
