This is a workout program for complete beginners. No previous experience with exercise needed. It’s composed of low impact exercises at an easy-to-follow pave. Recommended for overweight individuals or anyone coming from a sedentary lifestyle.

You’ll need access to basic exercise equipment to start: 3lb dumbbells, exercise mat, power bands and exercise ball. I do recommend increasing the weight of your dumbbells throughout the program to increase intensity along the way, this will help you make significant progress and see incredible results in the end.

This program is progressive. You start with the easiest workout and as you’re building more strength and stamina your training becomes more challenging.  Throughout the weeks you’ll repeat some routines you’ve already done, this will serve you not only as an active rest day, but also to help you notice your improvement in overall conditioning.

This program doesn’t include any rest days because it’s not a program that includes any high intensity interval cardio or heavy lifting. Daily exercise is very beneficial and will build a strong foundation to further your progress in fitness long after you finish the program.

Once you complete the last workout in this program, don’t let your hard work go to waste and make sure you continue your progress. Where to go from here? I suggest you to really commit and take the next step towards getting into the best shape of your life, and sign up for the CARDIO & STRENGTH STARTER PROGRAM.

    Thank you so much for adding these workout programs! I absolutely love the ZGym and I feel like it just keeps improving every day. The site looks great, it’s super easy to navigate and find specific workouts or blog posts, and these new workout programs are just the icing on the cake! Thank you again and great job to the entire ZGym team, you should be very proud!

        it looks interesting concept. Will the other program be the same principle to use existing workouts but putting them together in a smart intentional manner? (including the tracker enhancement).
        Zgym is in constant Beta state.
        Zgym is not from A to Z, but from B to Z (ha, ha)

        I am by far the seemingly worst at keeping a routine going, so I am quite grateful forthis schedule even though I was on day two twice before and today makes the third time. ..I trust that I will get a Grove on to complete a program and kick my applecart into shape. Thanking for making these workouts free and trackable! !!!! I don’t know how much work goes into this type of work but I am very happy that you all have done this for us who can’t quite afford to pay a monthly charge for the entire year. Thank you past Z member and will be again, I will do this 9 wk program and if I can do it all I will renew my subscription as there isn’t much point to throwing away 15 bucks every month for something I’m not using. These exercises are very smooth and strength building and I’m very excited about that. I will get organized and become disciplined and will take charge. I’m going to change and workout now. Thanks Z

          How’s it going with your schedule? Did you keep up (probably not, at least not, if you are as bad as me at keeping a routine going on stably)?

          I was just wondering because I wondered if this was a comment I had left and forgot by now, when I was reading your comment. It sounded just like me. I have also put a ZGym membership as a gift for completing this program for me.

            HI , I have rewarded myself with a membership even though I haven’t finished I still haven’t finished it’s been like probably a year or two now still trying to do the same bunny slope exercises I’m on I think week 3 but it hasn’t clearly been consistent…. good Lord why I wonder…. any who. … I hope you join I find the comfort of being a member motivation to help me do the workouts even more consistantly inconsistent you know… I figured I am saving money not eating breads and pastas excessive amounts of carbs anymore so I can put that money to good use, so my reward IS the ZGYM. Totally a win/win
            Thanx, Z

I’m really excited about the new programs and once again it shows how she has been listening to everyone’s comments (some want body weight, some want other –) Personally I’m most excited for the butt, bodyweight and KB workouts!

    Love It! Takes out the guesswork of what WO to do best next :), makes the site near to complete for me, no extra apps or else needed, now I can fully focus on the workout and still see a progress and some kind of “achievement”, which helped me in my nutrition, and now also helps me with staying consistent and finish the bunny slope series!
    Well Done Zgym Team!

    my boyfriend already noticed that I lost some pounds :), maybe next he will notice some muscles!

I have been telling people to check you out since your BodyRock days but as a newly certified health coach I will definitely be sending my clients this way as the program , so far, is so well thought out and organized. There is a system, support, and accountability which are the pillars of a good program in my opinion.

    Were some exercises missing from the video? I just followed along but looking at the written list I think not everything was included. What was the weighted bunny slope and tail wag? Where can I find these?

    I’ve been a fan for a long time and although I am not a beginner, I started doing the bunny slope workouts as a bonus workout after my cardio. I was getting so exhausted after my cardio that I couldn’t properly do the intermediate and advanced workouts. So for me, the bunny slope workouts are perfect. I don’t look at it like I have regressed because I am finding ways to make the bunny slope workouts a little bit more challenging by adding heavier weights and resistance bands whenever possible. So, with that, thank you for everything you do and for always finding ways to cater to everyone’s individual needs. This is why I will always be a fan and ZGYMER!

      • In the program schedule, click on the title of the workout with the entry you want to edit or delete. (When it reloads, it will be showing the entires for the workout you just clicked on)
      • Scroll down to the progress tracker.
      • Click the bar that says “View / Edit past progress entries for this workout”
      • Find the workout you want to edit, make sure it says the right week and day
      • On the right, click either the pencil icon to edit or the “x” to delete the entry

        So far I love this program! It is so great for building foundational strength and balance. I have a tendency to jump into intense programs without gradually easing into a routine first and I have injured myself so many times 🙁 This is just what I need to build up to that level of intensity! Thank you Z!

    This is awesome! Thanks for putting this together!! I am not a beginner, but I love doing other workout programs because they always help me switch things up and keep my exercise interesting. I have picked up some heavier weights since I’m not a beginner and made it still very applicable for my experience level. Plus- I am hoping to work up to your more advanced videos and hope this challenge will get me there more comfortably! Keep doing your great work!

      Did it save anything at all? Did it advance you to day 4? If yes, you should be able to edit the entry. See my comment reply above (or use this link) -> How to edit a past progress entry

        would it be possible to add the program in our account , or somewhere that looks easy to remember/access ?
        For the moment I am clicking on the right-side bar above weekly schedule, on the “ad”.
        Also the progress graph of the program doesn’t really look self-explanatory. the graph is missing entries for the x and y bars. Is it the number of reps? is it time on days?

        • private avatar image
          Private

          Private  |  Los Angeles, CA, USA

          Yes, I’m playing with how best to link it in now. The overall progress graph at the top is just a graph of all of your percentages from each day. You should see 0-100 on the left axis and you’re right, I should add a label for the bottom axis — it’s just “days”. 😉

    Hi Scott & Zuzka,

    I’m loving the workout program tracker so far! I really like the Fitness as a percentage feature but I have a question about it.

    Is the percentage updated as more people complete each workout or does it just calculate once as of the day I complete each
    workout? (i.e., I completed Bunny Slope #2 today and my fitness is 99%. If more people complete the workout in the future and their time is better than mine, will my fitness % still update to include new participants to the program in the average?) Sorry if my question is not clear, I sorta confused myself when trying to put it into words.

    • private avatar image
      Private

      Private  |  Los Angeles, CA, USA

      Thanks, glad you like it! And no worries, it’s not completely obvious how it works, exactly. Some of that is intentional since the percentage is just meant to be an estimate of your progress; a loose guideline.

      That being said, yes, it calculates your percentage compared to the current average as of that day. Your previous percentages will not be recalculated, though, so as more people do the workout, your percentage could be different from one day to the next even if you posted the same time/reps.

      Definitely let me know what you think of the overall tracker as you move through the program. We’re trying it out to see if it’s useful and how we might improve it. 😉

    I came up with one thing… Like a progress bar with emotions of Zuzka. 🙂
    I mean, if you exercise every day – Zuzka’s very smiling. If you lose workout, Zuzka’s getting sad…. It’s like motivation to please Zuzka and to be very responsible. 🙂
    Or just another type of bars…
    I’m sorry if I was rude.. I didn’t want it. I’m just kidding. But this idea could be. 🙂

      so funny ( I like that you proposed Zuzka to be “sad” instead of “angry”)
      Some website (very large, such as Sparkpeople) have a customizable tracker bar.
      Since motivation is different from one person to another, people can choose what works best for them. But I guess they have a fleat of “Scott” available.

    Well I managed to drag my butt out of bed every morning so far this week to workout because I’m having so much fun with this program! I haven’t done that in probably 7 years! I’m really enjoying this and can’t wait to finish this Bunny Slope program and try the next program! I don’t really have any suggestions, I love it so far and it’s very easy to use.

        Private  |  San Diego, CA, USA

        I can’t say that I really look at the chart much, actually. But I definitely like the fitness percentages, it’s very motivating to know I’m kind of competing with the other members and really pushes me because I can’t stand seeing anything below like a 95% LOL. Also, I like the fact that the workout and the breakdown are right there when I log in and click the link to the program, that’s really helpful.

    I use this on my phone but every time I come back I need to log in and search for the bunny slope workout again. My progress is saved but I can’t find it easily. Can I link to my workouts from my account profile so I don’t have to keep hunting around?

    Is it possible to do the workouts without a stability ball? My apartment’s not that big and I just don’t know where to put the ball when I’m done working out. I don’t want it lying around in my living room where I could easily trip over it (yeah I’m that clumsy :D).

      Private  |  San Diego, CA, USA

      Before I bought a ball, I used to just do the exercises on the floor or use a chair instead of the ball depending on the exercise. You can definitely get by without a ball, in my experience 🙂

      I could have posted this question. A feature that allows us to rate up a post would be awesome because this way, you show that you are also interested in the answer without having to post/reply the same thing.

      I would love to get ball-free alternatives for the workouts in this program.

      If you skim through all the workout videos on YouTube you can see how often you’ll be using each equipment & for which exercises, and decide from there.
      Tip: You could also inflate & deflate as needed. It may take 2 extra minutes before you start, but if it helps strengthen your form & enhance the workouts it would be worth it. 🙂

    Moving directly to the beginner cardio and strength series after the 9 weeks would probably what most people would be doing so a program that combines these two series would be awesome.

    The anounced “coming soon” starter cardio program might be exactly this.

      Agreed, my fingers are crossed that the next level beginner series will be ready when I finish the bunny slope series! But I bet the advanced members are itching for a program too so I’ll be patient LOL.

        It’s still saying my next workout is #1, even though I have also done #2. Not sure how to get to #3 now.

          Ok, I have hit a total snag. Probs:
          1. I can no longer add a new progress entry. I can only edit previous ones so if I have deleted them all, I can’t redo them and therefore can’t move on to the next workout.
          2. When I delete an entry, it does not delete the day. So my record says I am up to day 5 workout #2. I’m actually on day 3 and trying to do workout #3.
          3. My “next workout” always appears as workout #1.

          Can you help me get to workout #3 and make my tracker work properly? Many thanks.

            Update: I have managed to get to #3 by saving two versions of progress for 1 and 2. I can’t seem to get there any other way. Meanwhile, as I mentioned above the days are not updating. So I’m currently on day 5 workout 3, I’d love your help to fix this so it’s day 3 workout 3. Cheers.

              Hmm, looks like things got out of sync with the progress tracker on your account – probably because of my earlier bug. I see you have entries for days 4 and 5, but not for day 2 or day 3 yet.

              I would suggest deleting the entries for days 4 and 5 (see How to edit a past progress entry). If you want, I can delete those from this end if it’s easier.

              Then, re-enter your times for each day to get you back to where you currently are. Also note that day 2 repeats BSW#1 and day 4 repeats BSW#2 so you’ll have 2 times entered for each of those before you unlock BSW#3 on day 5.

    Just wanted to say Thank You! I am super grateful that this whole program is FREE. I’ve been struggling to get back into working out consistently and can’t seem to commit to anything. I’ve started week 2 today with BSW#4 and I can’t believe I’m motivated to keep on going. I’ve got high hopes for making it through the whole 9 weeks & If I can get through it all (1 day at a time) then I will have no reason not to commit to joining zgym. Also, If I think of suggestions along the way I’ll be sure to let you know. Thanks again! 😊🤗

    I’ve been trying to work off my baby fat for the last 10 or so months and everything is just too intense, I couldn’t keep up. My dad told me about you and I found this beginners program. It’s a steady pace and easy to keep up with. I’m incredibly excited to see how it works.

    I love this – thank you so much…!

    My only gripe is now I have fitness of over 100% which upsets the (buried) mathematician in me! Maybe you could do scores or rankings or something instead? Like compared to the others you scored x out of y many people? Or even, compared to the last time you did this you went up z many places or something?

    Thanks again – good luck with the bugs 🙂

      Haha – yeah, my math degree hears you, too – lol. Mostly, I just wanted to get something up quickly that wasn’t too complex. There’s definitely room for improvement, and don’t hesitate to keep the suggestions coming. For now, think of “100%” just being a label that represents the statistical mean. So, if you’re over 100%, then you did better than the average. 😉

        LOL evidently mathematicians and accountants think differently because I love the percentages! I also like Arloe’s idea of the ranking (you scored x out of y many people). I wonder how others feel.

          Private  | 

          I evaluate the x% in its context so I just look at if I have been able to improve or not. So I would be fine with any (numerical, alphanumerical or graphical) representation.

          At the end it is all about the relation of the data to me:

              I was thinking about this… I wondered whether the graph could have a coloured section with the maximums and minimums on it that follows your line (-ish)? I’m sure that type of graph has a name but my brain is not cooperating!

          Yes, love this discussion!

          This might solve a couple of issues -> one thing I was thinking about was to keep the percentages, but have a different scale for the other (“non-beginner”) programs. So, when you “graduate” from a beginner’s program and start one of the other, harder programs, it switches from the beginner’s scale to the … I-don’t-know-what-to-call-it-yet scale.

          Here’s my reasoning: the current “Beginner’s Scale” has the site average set to 100%. So, if you’re consistently getting 100%, then you’re hitting the average. That’s still really good, because on this site the average is better than the general population. But, if you really want to push yourself and see even better results, it might be useful to reset it so 100% is the BEST on the site. Then, you would never be able to get higher than 100%. And if you get 100%, you know you have the best time/reps on the site. But, then average would be more around 50%. When you’re starting out, chasing 100% is more motivating than chasing 50%. And moving to a new scale after a beginners program feels motivating to me. Thoughts?

            Ooooooh, I like that! So, let’s say I finish the Bunny Slope program and decided to try the Butt Lift program (just an example, I’m hoping the “Starter Program” will be ready by then, wink wink haha). I’d probably be at like, 50%, since there are tons of advanced members out there but I would absolutely be super motivated to work towards 100%! I like that very much. A fantastic way to track what would be a long term goal for someone at my level 🙂

            Also loving the discussion 😉

            I think the different scales could work fine, on the other hand, I think that the “scale” will automatically be a higher one because the ones that are doing the non-beginner programs are all advanced and hitting higher scores/ performances anyways.

            To come back to this discussion after a long time…
            I wondered today, how you handle new results keeping coming in? At the end the fitness level that is displayed at the time I finish a workout only can be evaluated with the data that is already there. But if one month later 30 new results have been entered, my level should be updated according to the new data.

    Bunny Slope for beginners is exactly what I needed. Because of college and working full time, foot surgery and a shoulder injury my active life came to a complete halt for several years. I kept trying to start similar to where I had left off years ago, only to be continually defeated. Thank you, so much for this! I break a sweat and have gotten sore (in a good way). This is the perfect beginning!

      I am in the same boat as you. I was very active and athletic in my college days. I fell off and jumped back on the wagon several times over the past 4 for various reasons. I tried multiple times to jump into the ZGym only to completely burn out after a week at most. This program has revitalized my love for exercise and is helping me rebuild the strength I once had and know I can get back. It’s also helping me get back in the habit of consistency because it’s all planned out for me. I don’t have to wonder if I’m scheduling the workouts correctly. I just wake up and follow the program.

      Thank you, Zuzka, for caring about all of your followers no matter what fitness level they’re at and for taking the time to truly try to address the needs of all of your members.

        dito. Really enjoyed reading your stories, Michelle & Donna. So nice to see that I am not the only one who fell off – for whatever reasons- and was feeling intimated by not being able to perform even the beginner series.

        So this program is all about getting back on track and reloading the daily habit to me, although it is insanely great to see results even after 9 days! 😮

    I want to give a feedback for this program: I think that is his the best thing ever. So motivating. It just works!

    The only difficulty that I have is with booking the time I have needed for the workout. Because they are so many explanations in the video, extracting the net time I neededfor the exercises is very difficult. I love to do the workout live with Zuzka so just following “offline” with the break through of the workout is just not the same. Because I have to put so much pre-effort in learning the exact forms of each exercise so that I can perform them later without Zuzkas instructions is so time consuming that I can just listen to the live video as well.

    For these beginner exercises it was kind of OK but this is the one single difficulty that I had.

    Great work and many thanks to the whole team!

      Hey fellow warrior! My recommendation is to watch the video for the next day right after you complete your workout, maybe while you cool down. So you can try the moves, see how they feel and get comfortable while you’re still warm. Then the next day, pull up the video, scan through for any reminders, put on your favorite most motivating workout music and get after it! Good luck 🙂

        Hey there,

        thanks, Denise! This is what I end up doing yet as I said, it is time consuming.

        I like the idea of watching it as a motivation the day before. Unfortunately I dont think that combining it with the cool-down will not work perfectly with me because I am the cool-down-with-smooth-jazzy-music-and-candles-and-scents-and-be-very-present-with-it kind of cool-downer =] but it is a great idea. So I think I will modify it and pre-watch the video while cooking or so;)

        Thanks again.

    Hello! I am new to Zuzka Light and I’m also trying to change my eating habits, so I’m doing this together with myfitness pal to help me track what I eat, but my question is do you guys have something that helps to track how many calories you might burn doing the workouts? Also thank you for the awesome work outs I just finished doing Bunny Slope #1 and I can feel my buns and arms are! 🙂

      Hey Jessikat, yes, I have done the same thing: Last month I have completely shifted my eating habits and tried and tracked everything. From this month on, I am reloading the habit of working out daily (and continue eating the way I have decided is the best last month).

      So as I have gone through this last month: I have used fddb.de to track everything I have eaten. I love the site, it is amazing and so easy to use. BUT it is german. Yet I hope that you can find an aquevalent in english. The site also has its own app so I was able to simply type in what I just ate even when I was outside.

      Best luck & lots of fun with your great journey!

      Hi Jessika, I use a heart rate monitor (Polar brand) that tracks my heart rate and calories burned. Obviously we are all different and individual results vary but I am 4’10”, about 140lbs, and I’ve been burning around 100-150 calories per workout in the Bunny Slope series. Hope that helps give you some kind of frame reference at least 🙂

    Hi Scott (and ZTeam),

    it would be very motivating to me to see the current best score of the workouts (maybe next to the rating-% column).

    One could even get notified on breaking the record if that happenes 😉 PS: The first one to enter any data would hence always be a recorder..

    This makes 3 weeks that I’ve made myself wake up early to workout before work! The thing I love most about this Bunny Slope program is that it’s just the right intensity to help me get back to a consistent habit of working out. I feel energized after each workout and have definitely noticed changes in my body so far. But at the same time they are not so intense that I dread getting out of bed because I know I’ll just feel defeated from a high intensity workout that I’m just not ready for. Thank you again, I really can’t thank you enough! I still have 6 weeks left in the Bunny Slope program and I can’t wait for the next level!

      Hi Michelle,
      I appreciate your comments. I know your feelings, but we’re all different!
      You were saying that you’re not ready for more intense workouts, but what may help you is to break into it with some totally different activity between workouts. For me, I do this by making time for 5 minutes of ANYthing from the Zuu for my wakeup routine. Then, after work all day, I change and do a walk-run to a spot no less than half a mile away – like a park, school or even a nice cemetery – and do a ZGYM workout. I get warmed up, I’m ready for new motion, and I get a LOT out of the workouts, even if I can only do 1-2 rounds of a body-weight-only routine. Like tonight, I did a 3/4 mile walk/run on a hilly, turny, rocky, grassy trail till I got to the high school. There, I did the new 12-minute body for 8 minutes, 2 full rounds, and 10 dive-bombers and 10/10 side-plank knee-tucks. It was awesome… Then I ran almost half way back home, for a total of 1 hour and over 4 miles of distance.
      Maybe that will give you some ideas – and anyone who passes by, as well! 🙂
      Keep up the good work!

    So, I’m doing Workout #6, however, I’m not entirely certain how the reps are being counted.

    Squat & twist overhead press x 12 alt.
    Forward/back lunge with DB curl x 5/5
    Kneeling heel lifts (x5) to kneeling push up x 6 sets
    Kneeling side plank leg lifts x 10/10
    Shoulder lift (x5) / Butt lift (x5) x 5 sets

    For example, in the shoulder lift and butt lift section, is that: 50 reps ((5 shoulder +5 butt ) x5 sets), 25 reps (5 lifts x 5 sets) or just 5 reps (1 rep per set of lifts?). Likewise, are the kneeling lifts 30 reps (5×6) or 6 reps?

    Given the 119 reps target that Zuska did, it seems each set counts for 1 rep, but I would like some clarity if possible!

    • private avatar image

      Private  |  San Diego, CA, USA

      I struggled with #6 too but I think I figured it out (someone correct me if I’m wrong).

      First, in the video, Z does 5 sets on each leg of the kneeling heel lifts to pushup so I disregard what the written breakdown says because it was confusing me. So I counted the reps like this:

      Squat & twist overhead press = 12 reps
      Forward/back lunge with DB curl =10 reps
      Kneeling heel lifts (x5) to kneeling push up = 5 reps
      Kneeling side plank leg lifts = 20 reps
      Shoulder lift (x5) / Butt lift (x5) = 5 reps

      Total reps per round = 52

      I might be wrong but that’s how I did it 🙂

  55. private avatar image

    Private  |  San Diego, CA, USA

    So I have one other suggestion 🙂

    I used 3 lb. weights for the first two weeks of the Bunny Slope program and I used 5 lb weights in week 3. I planned to do the same in week 4 but I didn’t even realize until this morning that I used 8 lbs today and Saturday during my workouts haha! I was still able to beat my personal best (although I couldn’t figure out why it suddenly felt more difficult for the past couple of days until I realized I had pulled the 8’s out LOL).

    I really love how the progress tracker easily shows us our past times or reps for workouts that we’ve already done, it really helps me clearly see that I am getting results. My only suggestion on that piece would be for it to also list the weight of our dumbbells or kettlebells. I realize that might be difficult to add to the graph but even just listing it in the space where we are given our fitness percentage for each workout during the weekly breakdown would be really helpful for people like me that will have a hard time remembering what weight we used in weeks past 🙂

    Thanks again, I am now on Week 4 and really loving this!!

    • private avatar image

      Definitely would be easier to add that to the schedule table than the graph. I’ll add that to the to-do list. 😉 (Eventually, my goal is to have it where the weights are factored into your percentage. Now, they are not.)

    So excited to begin this program! I started doing Zwow’s on YouTube back in the summer of 2013. Never have I had more noticeable results and enjoyed exercise more. However, I stopped working out. Life happened and I decided to use that as an excuse! Now I am starting from scratch. Slightly bummed because I’m not where I was when I started in 2013, but still looking forward to this journey. Love the usability of the site. And shout out to Zuzka: you are gifted with being a true encourager! Thanks for providing an upbeat and legit program. Keep up the awesome work!

    I’ve known of Zuzka’s videos for years but now that I finally try them for myself I LOVE this program. Before this I did weightlifting for 8 months up to the point where my progress had me benching 105 and dead-lifting 185, but I fell off the bandwagon hard for a good two months. After losing most of my muscle and gaining 5 pounds of fat I decided to try something new because I got so burnt out. This met me right where I was and I can see my fitness returning in force and I’m only nearing the end of week 2.
    Hoping to hop right into the official beginner programs after 9 full weeks of work, and the endless amount of content waiting for me is so exciting to think about. Love the set up of the site as well– Easy to get around and the fact that I can get to my next morning workout with just a click is pretty boss.
    Love it, loving the burn, and love joining in as one of your warriorz, Zuzka!
    Poka!

    Thank you for this! I am coming out of surgery and a post op complication and need to get my butt back in gear. My doc has OK’d me to go ahead with exercise. This is incredibly helpful and will be starting with this in the next few days! 😀

    Hi,
    This workout is awesome. I’m glad when I can improve my current results.
    I’m not a beginner but also not a gym master so I do this exercise two times in row. It’s really great 🙂
    Thanks a lot for everything you’ve done.

    I bought the body analyzer that Zuzka suggested when I was already a couple weeks into this program but I just checked my stats this morning after two weeks and I’ve lost 5 lbs and a little over 1% body fat 🙂 That’s with leaving much to be desired in the diet department but I struggle with that a lot and am trying to make small changes over a long period of time (for once) so I can actually formulate a diet that I’m happy with.

    I was really happy to find this. Great work guys! I was also glad to see that some of the older exercises are still here. Zuzka a few years ago you helped me change my body. Unfortunately due to health issues I stopped and I let go of my self. I am here a few years later, hoping I can live up to the promise I made to myself. Zuzka you are the only person in the whole world that can motivate me and I thank you for that. I will try my best to keep up.

    Hi, first of all this program is amazing , I started as a beginner even if this is not totally true but I feel every workout the day after.
    Thank you very much for this Z. Great job, great team!!
    PS:
    @Zteam ..at workout #6 you must make a correction.
    At ex 3 it’s written differently compared to what Zuzka describes . I think it should be ..x5/5 sets .. At the end of the line.

    So great program!!! But I have a question regardin workout #6. How to count repetitions of exercises Kneeling heel lifts (x5) to kneeling push up x 6 sets and Shoulder lift (x5) / Butt lift (x5) x 5 sets? How many repetiotions are counted for one attempt?

    Just did my first bunny slope workout today. So excited to be getting started with Zuzka and look forward to eventually doing the regular weekly program. I’m not a total beginner, so this workout was very doable for me. But I’d rather start out easy and progress gradually. I’m still doing my regular workouts (yoga and Pilates), plus I’m an equestrian, so I ride several times per week. It’s demanding riding (show jumping), so I have to be careful to add new exercise gradually so my riding and energy levels don’t suffer.

    #14 was great, definitely a challenge for me. This was the first workout in the series that I barely kept up with Zuzka while trying it for the first time.

    I have to say the thing I love most about this program is that it really has kept me consistent. I’ve always been an “all or nothing” kind of person (to a fault). Yesterday was the first day in six weeks that I didn’t do a workout. I was out if town visiting family and I just enjoyed my time and didn’t worry about it. Hoped right back on the wagon this morning when, before this program, I would have thought “well, screw it, I ruined my perfect streak.” I finally realized that if I set a goal to workout everyday and I miss one day in six weeks, that should be celebrated, not scoffed at.

    Hi! It seems to me that there is an error in the number of exercise repetitions. Week 5, day 1, Workout Bunny Slope #9, paragraph 3: short Kneeling leg lifts x 20 + 10 x stationary lunge ( repeat on other leg). In the video you do 20 stationarу lunge on each leg.

    Hey guys, I just found this program a week ago. I am on day 3 now, and I think for the first time I found something I actually want to stick with. So glad!!!. I got a normal weight, my fitness level is let`s say bit below intermediate. I find the excercises doable, I feel them the next day but don´t get sore, for me very fitting. My goal is to build more muscles and get rid of my back pain. To be honest I can`t really measure my times yet, I am concentrating on Zuzka´s explanation rather so that I am estimating my times mostly, I need her telling me what when how to do, that I can focus on my body. Guess if I would measure the time I would forget to focus on the form of the excercise. Think it will get better by time when I gain more control of my movements. XD The Idea of writing everything down still motivates me a lot to do my next excercise, and i am excited what is coming the next day. Thank you very much, lovely greetings from Berlin to all the followers and to the ZTeam! Ilona

      Hi Ilona, I’m so happy you feel so motivated 🙂 once you finish the program and decide to move forward to the more advanced beginner series, you should also check out the Postural Therapy routines I have in ZGYM for back pain. It really works to keep you pain free if you can stick to them daily until the pain goes away. After that you should do them about 3 times a week as a prevention. I have fixed my own back this way and I continue doing the routines to keep my posture in a good condition.

    I’ve been following this lovely bunny slopes workout for 2 weeks. I’m enjoying the workouts, but even though I’m using heavier weights, they’re still pretty easy for me. In today’s video, Zuzka said if these workouts are too easy, to go ahead and proceed to the regular beginner workout in zgym, and that’s what I’m going to do. Excited!

    This series is great so far! I’m on the 3rd week.
    The only thing I would critique at the moment is when there is a “set” to have to do. Since video #6 was the first to really emphasise a more complicated version of that, I did get confused. All I did though was watch the Kneeling Heel lifts with kneeling pushup to make it clearer to myself. Also, another thing I did differently was to say A,B,C,D,E for the Heel Lifts and count a normal 1,2,3,4,5 for the pushup.

    Sets are still confusing to me even though I once was a martial artist. I think this is because we were very old school about the whole thing. Honestly, what used to take me 4 hours to accomplish I can now do with just one of your workouts. It’s crazy good results.

    I found this course very nice and attractive in order to smoothly come back to the regular sport life and intensive activities after the trauma and 3 months break. Just as an idea – will be great to create special rehabilitation program with the exercises for the different traumas and its consequences. With love and good mood, Cheers

    Hi Zuzka, I come from the Czech republic and recently I have seen some articles about you here in Czech and you have my admiration 🙂 I would like to start working out with your programmes. Do you have any programme which you would recommend are suitable for pregnant women? I am 15weeks now and I do excercise on regular basis – just now I am a bit lost what is the most safe for my baby. I skipped my running and I am still searching for suitable workouts. Thank you for your advice. Dom

      Hi Domi,
      I don’t have a specific prenatal workout program, but if you’re used to working out, you should be able to keep going at the same intensity. You’ll have to make some modifications but most women don’t change their workout routines that much when they get pregnant. I have a lot of pregnant ZGYM members that follow my weekly workout schedule and make their own modifications. Mostly they are careful when it comes to exercises that require balance, and modify exercises like burpees to avoid laying down on their belly or laying on their back for too long. This Bunny Slope Program is very low in intensity and a low impact, however there might be some exercises you might want to modify. You can also ask your doctor what type of moves you should avoid and go from there.

    Hi!
    I´m so happy that I started this program. During this year I´ve lost my routine and only trained 1-2 times per week, mostly compound movements with barbell. I needed something new and even if I don´t consider myself a beginner in training this easy to follow workouts has helped me feel inspired again and left my body with a nice soreness, obviously targeting muscles that has been sleeping for a while. I´m on day 7 and looking forward to my next workout! Thanks Zuzka!

      As for pregnancy, I can recommend Lindsay Brin programs (moms into fitness) for pre-natal and she is certified in pre-post natal and even provides certification for PT that want want to take up a notch on the matter. I had 2 pregnancies and was very careful to not wreck my body.

      Hi Daniele, You should see a link to the Cardio & Strength Starter program, in the main description, in the note from me when you get to the last day, and also there will be another reminder once you complete the workout so that you know where to go next. Just click on one of the links that says Cardio & Strength Starter program and you’ll be following the next 12 weeks of workouts that will help you to gain the strength you need for more challenging routines in ZGYM.

    Just did workout 1 of the bunny slope. Was nice. But you gave an incorrect instruction on the Down Dog. You said ‘lock your knees’. This leads to injury. One should never lock the joints in any postural movement.

    • private avatar image

      Private  |  Los Angeles, CA, USA

      I disagree with you. Maybe in some type of yoga that you’ve been learning from. I learned this particular posture from postural therapy, where these instructions are correct.

      locking the knees is an essential part of bikram yoga, also. So I think, it is not a tabuu.

I really appreciate how you give instructions and your positive attitude. I’m really enjoying it and I’m definitely going to check out ZGYM when I finish!

        Hi Warrior! Don’t worry about falling a bit behind, I had to take a few days off through my program too. I definitely notice a big difference in my strength and endurance! I only lost 3 pounds but I wasn’t really putting a lot of focus on my diet which I intend to do more in the next program. But one of my coworkers asked if I was losing weight so there must be visible differences too! My goal with this program was just to improve my strength for the next program where I hope to see more results since it is high impact and I am ready to make more small changes to my diet 🙂 I took a week off from the ZGym for my vacation but was still very active on my trip (hiking, biking, walking, water sports, etc). This morning I am officially starting the Cardio & Strength Starter Program and I can’t wait!

        Keep it up Warrior, I know you can complete the Bunny Slope Program and I think you’ll be as excited as I am for the next program when you’re done!! 🙂

    A rather detail question: How do you count your total reps for combo exercises that are given as x-sets in the breakdown? For example the #6 has an exercise (combo) which includes 5x should lift, 5x butt lift back-to-back. We are doing 6 sets. Do you count this as 6 reps or 60?

    Because my result has been evaluated as 66% of the community fitness level and I am very depressed right now! :))

    Is theres a specific size for the balance ball? I’ve seen it with 55″ or 65″ cm so Im not sure about that.

    • private avatar image
      Private

      Private  |  TX, USA

      It all depends on your height.
      55 cm ball is for 5’0″- 5’5″; 65 cm ball is for 5’6″ – 5’11”; and 75 cm ball is for 6’0″ – 6’3″
      If you’re like me and in between that range, just go up otherwise it’ll be too easy. I’m 5’5″ and a half so I went for the 65 cm ball. It works great!
      Hope that helps.

Got a burn-out and was not allowed to train at all if I felt I was competing with myself. I have been feeling well the past 6 months and decided to follow your beginners program to regain some of my strength. It’s amazing how fast my body is adapting. Didn’t think that muscle-memory would last 2 years. Ok, I’m 3-4 days behind schedule (week 3, day 1) already, but I bike to and from work up a gruelling mountain every single day, walk 1.5 hours with my dog, and in the weekends we hike in the mountains. Looking forward to getting into shape, regain strength, energy, and be happy 🙂

    Hey Z!

    I’m getting ready to start your bunny slope program but I wanted to ask if you have thought about doing a program for pregnant women? I am working to get healthy before I get pregnant but I want to stay in shape when I do get pregnant. Look forward to your response!

    Hi Zuzka
    I’m currently 25 weeks pregnant and wanted to know if the bunny slop series would be good for me to do while pregnant? I currently spin and do weights but I’m looking for variety

      The bunny slope program should be safe for the most part, but it’s not recommended to do exercises that keep you flat on your back for longer than a minute and it may restrict the blood flow to the baby. Also you may want to avoid any exercise that require you to lay on your belly, so as long as you keep that in mind and do some modifications, you can do all the workouts in the program.

      I would suggest you to start with the 9 week Bunny Slope Program – it’s for people who need to start moving and start losing weight gradually before they move to more challenging exercises. During this time of 9 weeks you should adjust your diet and really clean it up so that everything you do works towards your progress. Avoid starchy carbs,and replace them with veggies. Here’s a great article on Weight Loss that will help you start with the very basics.

      DeeBunny– No matter what happens, try your best! Sweat, grunt, fall down but always get back up and try again 🙂 I am well over 200lbs myself and worried as I started as well. Just remember, you can do this! Every day you come back is another step forward and another step closer to your goals. I hope you come back and don’t worry if its not the perfect start you imagined– its your start, your journey, and you’ll be able to look back at yourself and see improvements as you go! We’re in this together on our journey to beat ourselves so hopefully you stick with the bunny slope program and move on from here!

    Hello, Zuzka. I subcribed to ZGYM yesterday, and completed day 1 of the Bunny Slope exercises. May I say that with just the few reps of the standing exerices, the sweat was POURING, and by the time the stretch and cool down portion of the video, I was DRENCHED and I am here for it. Thank you so much for compling these amazing vids together. I look forward to the other fabulous features that ZGYM offers. See you tomorrow.

    Hello! I’m enjoying this program so far! I have a question. So for the #4 Bunny Slope, the list starts off as Curtsy lunge weighted calf raise 10/10. I did 3 sets for those so should I count that as 60 reps or 30 reps? Also, would it be possible for the future to be able to just input that you did 3 sets (and however many reps that may have been left over) for every work out, rather than having to calculate each individual rep for every work out? Thanks again!

    I’m confused on how to do the amrap workout. Do I do each excercise the number of times that she has posted, then try to do the same 5 excercise as many times as possible within 15 minutes?

    • private avatar image
      Private

      Private  |  Los Angeles, CA, USA

      Yes AMRAP means that you’re going through the circuit following the reps in the workout breakdown. Once you finish the last rep in the circuit you go back to the first exercise and start the circuit over. Basically you just keep going through the exercises until the time is up.

      • private avatar image
        Private

        Private  | 

        Repeat 15 or 17 minutes the whole breakdown? Then to record my progress, I type 17 min? Just confused.

          As many rounds as you possibly can, of all exercises within that certain workout, in 15 minutes time. 🙂

          Private

          Private  | 

          For the AMRAP your time should be 15 minutes, no more than that. Because it’s as many total reps for all exercises that you can do in the time frame allowed.

    • private avatar image

      AMRAP stands for As Many Reps As Possible (can also mean As Many Rounds As Possible). Just do as many reps as you can fit into the time limit. When it is called a 15-minute AMRAP, then you see how many reps you can do in just 15 mins 🙂
      If the workout is an AMRAP, then you will not find a place to write how many minutes you did – only how many reps you did. If it’s possible to edit the number of minutes you did when recording your progress, then that workout is not an AMRAP.

    What does everyone else do as far as watching the video vs setting a timer?
    I currently play the videos from my iPhone through AirPlay onto my tv and mentally note what time I started but I’d like to watch a timer as well as have a video or at least the visual list of excercise a easy to see.

      I actually do the same thing but I also have an iPad and a MacBook. I use the iPad as my timer and my iPhone is connected via AirPlay with the workout listed and music in the background. If you don’t have a secondary device then if you have a kitchen timer or a watch that has a timer that could be used. I have a Nike watch and a Garmin watch that I have used as timers when I do my workouts outside. Hopefully that helps 🙂

      For the AMRAP workouts, I use the stopwatch function on my phone, so I can see how long I have left and an alarm goes off after 15 mins. I have the workout video playing on my laptop (with speakers) to help me remember the exercises and keep good form, but I go my own pace and skip ahead when I’m ready for the next exercise 🙂

If you feel like making it perfect, for the record ;). Have a nice day!

    Gosh! I have done it to week 2 now. Having struggled with eating disorders and bdd my whole life it is not the first time I’m beginning with fitness-stuff. Until now I used to get obsessed about it each time, and then suddenly stopping it completely. Both very unhealthy extremes. During the past two years I have managed to make peace with my eating habits though, gaining almost 15kg and getting into the *worst* shape of my life, but still quite happy about the peace part. Now I decided to get fit again, seeking a healthy approach… I knew some fitness sites but with their “no pain no gain – we are FIGHTERS bla bla bla” vocabulary they all kept triggering me. Now I found you, Zuzka! And I honestly feel like this time everything is going to work out. Of course I want to look good and sexy and stuff and of course I like feeling a bit sore after completing a good workout and everything, and you seem not to forget about these pretty side effects. Yet I see how your program and this community is about happiness and HEALTH. And health is exactly what I needed!
    You are the kind of role model that I want to be myself (I’m working with children and teenagers). I have been watching your vlogs and blog entries and stuff for only a bit more than a week now but I am SO (!) in love and already so so greatful for your love and inspiration and everything. I can’t believe I’m at week 2 now and still feeling like this is a good thing to do. Your internet-appearance calms AND motivates me. When I manage to finish week 2 I’m getting a ZGYM-subscription for myself as a kind of reward and I am so so happy about this. Thank you so much, so much!

    Ahoj Zuzko,
    I’m a zgym member for quite a long time now and I’ve decided to introduce my little sister to your daily workouts as well. She’s 11 and unfortunately she’s in a really bad shape. No endurance, no muscles, very overweight with fat stored mainly in the abdominal area.. We’re getting worried, so I’d like to get her moving. So here are my questions: is the bunny slope series good for her, as I said, she’s just 11? And 2nd thing: she’s not able to do a squat. Her legs are ‘x-shaped’ and when she does a squat, her knees tend to go together, her feet move to the ‘frog’ position and she’s unable to keep her heels on the ground. I’m not sure how to improve this, can you give us some advice? Of course I watch her everytime she works out and make sure she’s keeping a good form.

    Thank you, Nikola

    Hello Zuzka I am new in your program and I just love it. I find though due to weight the exercises which we bend our knees painful. I feel pain on my knees and find it hard to complete these exercises though i try really hard. Is that normal? Do you also have to suggest any other program for weight loss than the 9 weeks? i started my diet plan a week ago and I’m already 4.5pounds down but i need to loose around 30 pounds😕

      Despina,
      I also am aiming to loose around 30 lbs too. I felt the same knee pain and some back pain. Stretching after every workout has helped for me. If you’re just beginning to workout again like I am, I think your body just has to get used to using muscles that it hasn’t in a while. I would take it slow and let your body ease into the new changes. Congrats on the 4.5 lb weight loss 🙂

      Hi Despina – please know that losing 4.5 pounds in 1 week is great. If you just do something small every day you will get there. The sad thing is that we can often lose hope and give up when we were on the right track. Just try gently for 9 weeks and then decide. Be gentle, but do something daily! Good luck, and don’t let your mind tell you it’s not happening fast enough – that’s a little trick to make you give up when you are so close 🙂

    I just finished Week 5, Day 1 and the Bunny Slope Workout #9 is no joke. The first time I did it I used 5 lbs and I decided to up the weights to 10 lbs. The second round I felt like throwing in the towel but I kept on pushing. Made it through strong and glad I kept pushing to the end. Its moments like these when you want to give up but remember why you started in the first place.

    Quick note (you do not have to publish the comment): The description differs from the workout in Bunny Slope #2: On the lunges it says 15/15 in the description which is what I did because I was ahead of time. In the video Zuzka does 10/10 though, not 15 each.

    Hi! It`s me again! I am doing this Bunny Slope workout but during week 4 I must do a break because of my holidays: without material and too many time. I have the book: 15 minutes to fit but is too much for me and this is the reason I start with this awesome workout. I see in the zgym 5 minutes workouts some of theme without equipment. I am wonderinf if maybe you can recomend me somre beginner 5 minutes bodyweigth workout that I can do on my holidays . Then at home I`ll continue the bunny slope. I don`t mind If I have to pay for this workouts now being a member of zgym from now. Thank you very much, I`m so sorry if my english is not good enough! Thanks Zuzka and your fantastic team! I am loving the bunny slope and I fell very happy finding somebody who motivets me to workout everyday.

      Tago,
      Here is the breakdown, Zuzka clarified it somewhere on the thread here and also through email. Hopefully this helps…

      1 – 12 reps
      2 – 5 reps
      3 – 6 reps
      4 – 10 reps
      5 – 5 reps

      38 total reps per round

      2 rounds = 76
      3 rounds = 114
      4 rounds = 152
      5 rounds = 190

      In short I believe your total reps would be 93.

I was certain that I would get fitter and stronger and simply feel better, yet I had doubts if the whole story would indeed affect my body shape (although it’s written everywhere and I was eating well). But now I have noticed how the fat fold at my waist has almost disappeared. I’m at the end of week 2 (but skipped a few days, so two weeks and a half have passed). This happened so quickly!!! OMG! I feel like crying 🙂 🙂 🙂 Thank you again, daaaamn thanks 🙂 !

    I suffer from chronic adrenal fatigue and have to learn to pace myself, not push myself too hard (which I’m very good at!) At the beginning of week 5, I’m going to go back and start again from day 1. My body is not ready to keep upping the game, so I’m going for consistency over increasing difficulty. Sigh…finally learning the discipline of pace! To anybody who can’t do any of the exercises here – don’t beat yourself up. You’re here having a go and one rep is infinitely better than zero reps 🙂

      Sasstronaut,
      When I first started working out I used a chair to stable myself and focus on getting the form correct. So you can use the chair as support on the way down and then let go of it on the way up. Hope that helps.

        It sounds like that would work for regular squats. My problem is Z’s reverse squats – starting at the bottom and going up. They just feel so awkward to me. Does the chair trick work for those as well?

          Sasstronaut,
          Like as in the reverse squats in Bunny Slope #15? I would think you could still use a chair but maybe use it to stable yourself on the side of you rather than in front of you. Sorry it took so long to answer I was away on vacation.

    Hi,
    I’ve started the beginners program and am about to start week 4. Really enjoying the workouts, the problem I’m having is in the food. I subscribed to the membership hoping I would get more structure as to how to eat and what to cook but haven’t found anything. There are recipes but only in the blogs section so you have to scroll through and find something but I need more structure as to what to do each day. Anyone else having the same problem or am I just not searching the site properly? Or would I need to put the book? I would really welcome any help!

      Hi Kristine! Yes, if you follow along with Z, your entry into Progress Tracker would be the same as Z’s for that workout.

      BUT, a lot of the workouts repeat, so you’ll have a chance to do better than Z the next time the same workout comes up. Also, down in the schedule, where it shows the percentage — that percentage is based on your time or reps that day vs the site average of everyone who has done the workout on the site.

      So, your goal is to look for improvement not just in matching or beating Z’s times/reps for each workout, but also to get better than 100% (the site average) on each day in the schedule.

      Definitely feel free to ask more questions. This is a work in progress for us, so we’re totally interested in hearing what’s confusing, etc. 😉

        Hi Scott, it would be great if on the progress tracker we could put down how many repeats we did, i just had more time yesterday so i did one of the workouts twice, but if i set down my time it will be more than Z, because i did it twice, and not record the fact that one did it more times than she did…
        I just thought it would be an cool addition…
        Apart from that i LOVE this system!

    Can you help me?

      You have to always use your progress tracker so that the next workout unlocks for you. It will help you stay on top of your progress. Try to read the description that comes with the program. I know it’s a lot, but it really helps to guide you through it.

    I’m finishing up week 8. I haven’t seen any difference in my weight whatsoever. In fact, I’ve gained weight. Unfortunately that’s no ones fault but my own. I skipped out for two weeks because of personal business around week 4. Also I don’t workout on weekends. I know I’m not getting results because of myself but it sucks that I’m this far in and not getting the results I was hoping for. Though I’m the one to blame. Zuzka is amazing!

      I don’t know much about fitness but I personally think that these excercises are not even meant or capable of reducing your weight on their own. If you change your diet and have a lot of other movement along, then maybe. But I think 20 minutes of light stretch/excercising can’t do anything to the weight. It’s more designed for stretching your body, waking your muscles from sleep and gentle kick-starting it for heavier excercising that is to come. I’m in day 6 and I don’t expect more than feeling a bit more fit when I am done, hopefully having some more strenght in my muscles and improving posture due to risen self-consciousness about my body. You gaining weight can be from having more muscles now or anything else related to other aspects of your life. I think it’s great that you’ve kept up with it for 8 weeks already, I hope I will too. Don’t give up and try to work towards your dream results from other ways, too 😉

      This is the beginner program… it is meant to start getting you to move, but for losing weight you should continue doing the other excercise routines in the Zuzka website.

      Hello Vanniahz, I so feel with you! When I started this program I could see some small results, but I was on holiday and ate SUPERclean and did double workouts and so… Now I’m on week 4 (skipped many days, so maybe 6 or 7 or even 8 weeks have actually passed, I forgot) and I stopped SEEING changes. My body seems to look the same and my clothes don’t fit any better. But I think it’s okay and I really hink it’s okay for you, too! The change DOES happen on the inside and I know it will take a time for our bodies to adapt to a new lifestyle. I don’t think you need to talk in terms like “fault” or “to blame”. Because it’s f***ing awesome that you DO workout and you even keep going although you had to skip two weeks. You don’t workout on weekends? So what? It’s so awesome that you DO workout on weekdays!!! It is so hard to keep going and you can be daaaaamn proud of yourself for doing this program. And I believe deeply that this program is about getting STARTED and learning to love your body and everything and the changes WILL happen some day. For myself I somehow wished to see the kind of changes you sometimes see on before-after-pictures: 4 weeks, total transformation. Wow! But… This hasn’t happened to me. When I get frustrated about this I try to stop my negative thoughts and go search for the more realistic before-afters: It seems that for other people, maybe people like you and me, the visible change starts to happen after a couple of months and the big changes take minimum 6 months to a year. So as Z says I think staying with it is the key. And you are doing it! And that indeed motivates ME, so thank you very much for sharing your thoughts and experience! You rock!!! 🙂

    I have a question, i have never used swiss balls before and i am worried i might have bought one that was too big, i am pretty short. When i was sitting on it it felt fine, but when i started doing the laying V raises i noticed my legs were definitely not at a 90º angle like Zuzka´s. Does that mean i have to get a smaller one? The one i got is 65 cm, and i am about 5.1
    I´m loving these workouts!!!

      Get one size smaller!! It makes a big difference in your form and helps you be able to focus on the exercise instead of stabilization on the ball. I had this problem too and getting my second ball made a world of difference 🙂

      Vacations are a challenge! You might be tempted to oversleep and rationalize it because you are “on vacation.” But, as we all know, working out is fun and energizing! Maybe commit to do something every day? Walk briskly for 15 minutes or whatever fits your vacation location. If you see a stranger while exercising, smile as brightly as Zuska and see if he or she smiles back. Good luck and enjoy your vacation!

        Hey Cumming25, for a couple of days I tried to stay strong and doing my workout as well. But I felt really tired and I decided to take the needed rest. So I started after my vacation with the workout I did one week before I stopped. I was a little bit afraid of losing condition and strength, but nothing happened. I was motivated and it worked. Now I’m in week nine and happy to do something that’s good for my health

      Just keep going, you will get there, if you keep pu and keep pushing yourself towards a healthy lifestyle you will get there.
      But try not to take any shortcuts, they can be dangerous for your body, and be consistent with your workouts and diet, don’t splurge one day just because you had a good week its very counterproductive

    Too bad the Bunny slope has no cardio included.

      Dear ANID,
      I can reassure you, Bunny Slope IS cardio, if you do it in a faster pace.
      Check out Bunny Slope #8 for instance, it is not a difficult workout, but I could barely breath afterwards.
      I think you really need to prepare your muscles and joints if you want to move on to more advanced workouts to prevent injuries. And Zuzkas Bunny Slope series is perfect for that. I wish you good luck!!! 🙂
      At this point thank you for it Zuzka, I am enjoying it at my 7th week.
      Lovely Greetings from Berlin

      Hi Caroline! I am doing the Bunny Slope series atm and when I’m finished I’m going to continue with the Beginner Cardio and Strength series. I tried the first Beginner Serie’s workout and i think it’s perfect to continue with that series after the Bunny Slope workouts. But also I am already trying to do some of the “regular” workouts from time to time and just modify them as I need and go reeeeaaally slowly – and only when I really feel extra fit and am sure that I won’t harm myself. I feel like that’s also a great way to make progress and work myself to being able to do the workouts of the week one day… 🙂 I’d be curious to know how you proceed in the end!

    How to count reps on the bunny workout number 6? Here is the workout and I”m not sure how to count the reps so I posted my thoughts/question after.

    Squat & twist overhead press x 12 alt. = clearly 12
    Forward/back lunge with DB curl x 5/5 = is this 5 or 10 reps?
    Kneeling heel lifts (x5) to kneeling push up x 6 sets = is this 30 or 6?
    Kneeling side plank leg lifts x 10/10= clearly 20
    Shoulder lift (x5) / Butt lift (x5) x 5 sets = is this 5 reps or 50?
    Thanks!

    Hi, can anyone tell me – when you enter the dumbell weight, do you enter the combined total of both or just the one? So if I am using 2 x 2kg – should I enter 2 kg or 4 kg? Thanks

    • private avatar image
      Private

      Private  |  Los Angeles, CA, USA

      You can enter it either way, it’s mostly for your own information so you can keep track of what you used. The system doesn’t use the weight for calculations or anything like that at the moment. It’s purely informational.

      Having said that — personally, I would enter the weight of one dumbbell, so 2kg in your case. That way, when I see “2kg” in my workout history, I know “oh yeah, I used my 2kg ones last time.” 😀

    Hey beginners! I just wanted to share with you all how awesome this program is. I started here in bunny slope, and joined ZGYM after I finished. I have completed the second starter program series and now continue with daily ZGYM workouts. I am over 40 and I have never been in better shape! I lost 20 pounds and I have seen MAJOR improvement in my muscle tone. Zuzka is right, short daily workouts can get you in the best shape of your life. I used to do the 30 to 60 plus minutes workouts and never ever got the results I have by following ZGYM. Don’t give up! Don’t eat junk food and you will be so pleased!

    Hi ZTEAM,
    I’ve just signed in and although I am not truly a beginner I am to start with Bunny slope. I have one question though – have you got people complaining of knee pain when they’ve been on the program. I am asking because I did Jillian Michaels for over a month beginning of summer (30 day shred DVD to be precise). I injured my knees really bad and I by no means was new to exercising. It haven’t exercised in 3 months giving my knees time to recover and I am really worried what will happen when I start again.
    Thanks

      The thing with any joint pain is that it might have something to do with your form, or it might have nothing to do with the exercise at all. I have postural therapy routine for knee pain in the ZGYM that should help. Usually when people experience any joint pain during exercise it’s because they have some muscle imbalances in the body. Bones do what muscles tell them to do, so if the muscles are too tight or too lose, it will affect the way the bones and joints are positioned. Postural therapy helps to get our body back to the neutral and functional alignment.
      That said, the Bunny Slope Workout Program contains only low impact routines, so it’s very gently on knees as well. I think it’s a good idea to start with the Bunny Slope and allow your knee to get better and also try doing the postural therapy routine for knee pain daily. By the time you finish this program your knee should feel a lot better.

          Hi Ruthie!
          Have you tried using a mirror to compare your own form to Zuzkas form? Also try googling push-ups for form, there are several instruction videos on the internet and many modifications. I think actually kneeling push-ups are not so different from normal push-ups. Yet they can be very, very hard to do. If you can’t do a kneeling push-up yet maybe it’s not because of your form but because the movement is so new for your body and you haven’t built the strength yet. You could try a wall-push-up first or other modifications, like push-ups with a table or a chair. I have started with wall push-ups myself a while ago when I was not strong enough for anything else and today I can do three regular push-ups which I am quite proud of. 🙂
          I’d be interested in your results, please let us know when you find the solution to your problem! 🙂

          Hi Ruthie,

          Here are the pointers for kneeling push ups:
          1. Your hands directly under your shoulders
          2. Do not arch your back – keep your body in one line from your knees to your shoulders – this will require you to push your hips forward and engage your abs.
          3. Keep your elbows at about 45 degree angle to your body. Your elbows should not flare out to the sides too much.
          4. Keep your shoulders packed – as much away from your ears as possible.

          please note, you can always fold a towel to add extra cushion for your knees if you find that necessary.

    Just finished week 2 today! I can’t believe I’ve been working out every day! I travel for work, so these workouts have been great for every hotel gym that I’ve encountered. These exercises are challenging for my beginner booty, but not too much that it gets me discouraged. After a 12 hour day at work, I actually get so excited about my workouts. I think it helps knowing that it’s only a 15-25 minute workout, and poof! All done. And it’s very encouraging, btw, seeing everyone else progressing and enjoying these workouts. Go us!! 😀

    Hello Z, Tom, and fellow bunny slopers! I have a question. Well, I just need clarification. I just did #6 (week 3, day 2 woot woot!!). Z got 119 reps. I counted us doing 237 reps. Clearly, something’s amiss because I went along with Zuzana on the video. What am I counting wrong?
    12 squat/twists + 10 fwd/back lunges + 30 reps (5 sets of 5 heel lifts plus 1 push up) + 20 side planks + 40 reps (4 sets of 5 shoulder lifts plus 5 butt lifts) = 112 reps for 1 round. We did 2 rounds plus 12 squat/twists and 1 fwd/back lunges = 237 reps. I think I’m counting something that isn’t counted…maybe??

    Finished week 1!! I am loving and excited about the rest of the program, but the only problem that I have is one weak wrist. It hurts any time I put pressure on it, any advice on how to help this??

    Just joined and starting off in the bunny slope workout..been out of shape for a long time and overweight, hoping this will get me back into it slowly. Workout #1 is challenging and my hope is with consistency it will get easier.

    Thank you for getting back to me about the pull up bar station. I need to order from Canada and I don’t see those pull up stations that look anything like the one you have. Can you give me the make and model of the one you have. Thank you so much.
