Let's talk ZGYM workouts from https://zuzkalight.com/zgym/.
Yesterday, I did Lifted Butt Series #8, which is ladders. I hate ladders, so I did the buy-in and one round. Today, I'm trying to frantically rebuild a website, so I don't know if the new Black Diamond will be happening, but I look forward to it eventually.
I am so happy that I was approved and that I can post in here now! I was going crazy without my Happy Eaters fix each day. It was neat to see what a true community we have here, though—that was made evident to me by how much I missed everyone and felt incomplete without reading posts, writing posts, etc.
On Monday, I did a Beginner Kettlebell workout (I'm pretty sure it was #4). It was actually quite intense (but fun)!
Yesterday, I did the new Black Diamond workout. It was fun, too.
Today, I did Power Yoga #47. It has tons of great core work. I marked it as a favorite.
I would wake up every morning and wonder what workout you'd done, Tonya! It was so sad when we couldn't talk. I'm glad we're back!
I did the new Black Diamond #12 this morning. It was so fun! I loved the Santana knee tuck / plank jack / push-up combo. I've missed that series.
I felt the same way, @skwigg! I love coming to this thread each day and seeing what workouts you've (and others) have done, what modifications you made, etc. It gives me great ideas AND makes ZGYM even more fun! With the site down, it just didn't feel right.
I just finished the new Kettlebell Fit Slide Beginners #12. I used my 12kg KB and went at a faster pace than Z at certain parts to increase the challenge a bit for me. I did more mountain climbers at a quicker pace. I didn't need the breaks during the plank slides/plank jacks (I also added push ups to those), so I added in about 25-30 one-arm alternating swings while Z finished up. I know it's an AMRAP, so I could have just went faster than her and did more reps/rounds...but I like staying with her; it makes it more fun for me!
I love staying with her too, @Tonya. I almost never take off and leave her behind, but I will do more reps or extra stuff until time to switch.
I saw the new slider workout, but my toes are really never onboard with doing those. I did one round of 300 Killer Rep #1 instead. I really like that one. The knee hug / legs extended side crunch is my favorite combo. The side plank / knee tuck / leg lift is pretty fun too.
I just finished Stretch and Tone #35 (it comes up later in the week's schedule). I've done it before, but it's been awhile. I really enjoyed the punching moves (as always)!
This morning I did chin-ups to failure (3 reps today☺️) and then 5 Minute #121 Abs.
Good morning! Glad I found you guys again! I am back in love with Zuzka in the mornings.
I did 15 Minute Fat Burn #2 this morning in a completely distracted and half-assed manner thanks to Cooper's involvement. It was fun! I still really love that format.
Great to see you back here, [@firmchica]!
I took a rest day yesterday, and then today I did JRC KB #4. It is a twelve-minute AMRAP, but I went a little longer to finish two rounds. I love that series!
I was in the mood for something mellow with tiny dumbbells. I did Bunny Slope #2. It's high-rep, light-weight, strength only, no jumping. Very nice!
Great googly moogly! I just finished Upper Body & Abs Inferno #2 and I feel like I'm actually on fire. 🔥 I've done this one several times before but it really clobbered me today. The pull-up / dynamic push-up combo was super intense, and then the abs, OMG . Hanging abs, slider abs, kettlebell abs, stability ball abs. I'm sure it's going to hurt to laugh later, in a good way.
I did that Inferno workout yesterday, too, [@skwigg]. I even had time for all of the stretching! It was great!
Today, I did one round of the new Killer Legs #13. It was okay, but I wasn't loving it. I stopped after one round and then did 5 Minute Fat Burning Workout #76 - Abs. That's a tried and true favorite for me. My core was on fire! I finished up with handstands and stretching.
@Tonya I looked at the breakdown of Killer Legs #13, specifically the Side Step Hop Squat Cross Jump, and thought, "Hahaha! No!!" I know from past experience that I can't always tell from the breakdown if I'll like something, so I went ahead and tried it. That hoppy jumpy power band sequence burned but I didn't love it. I despise Over the Box Jumps. I actually really liked the One Leg Squats on a Chair. It's a pistol without having to pull the non-working leg up so high. Makes it a lot easier. The Squat Abduction Press and Step Up Switch were pretty fun. Anyway, like you, I did one round and thought that was plenty.
I was wondering if you were going to even do it [@skwigg] because I know how you feel about over the box jumps!
Today, I did Kettlebell #3. It's written as two rounds, but I did one plus a final set of KB swings. I used my 16kg bell on the swings and my 12kg on everything else. I finished up with Power Yoga #32 as my cool down and stretching. I enjoyed all of it!
I just finished Heartbreaker Body #5 from Friday's intermediate schedule. I love that one! Though, I do a traditional squat/press instead of pressing at the bottom of the squat, which feels biomechanically hinky to me. The power band moves were all awesome. I loved the side crunch inner / thigh lift.
I took a page from your book [@skwigg], and did Heartbreaker Body #5 yesterday. I love that series! I was going to do the new KB Fit Slide, but I didn't have enough time. I will probably do it in a few days. 😊
Today will likely be stretching of some sort.
I took yesterday off to eat gravy. Today I did 5 Minute #72 which is bodyweight cardio (Tabata intervals). It was fun, nothing fancy. Half burpees, mountain climbers, side jump lunges, abs and such.
Yesterday, I did Power Yoga #15.
Today, I did the new KB Fit Slide for Beginners. I used my 8kg bell (which is about the size Z used, I think). I added pushups to the plank jack slides. I also did more reps of some of the moves as I was able to move more quickly. It was fun!
I did 15 Minute Fat Burn #16 today. I remember being disappointed with it the first time I did it because there wasn’t enough jumping around like a rabbit. Today, I really liked the strength and isometric holds mixed in with the jumping and kicking.
