Beginner Cardio #1

 | 118 Comments | Beginner Cardio


Welcome to the new series of Beginner Cardio workouts for all of you that are looking for the best way to start working out with me, and gain the right amount of strength and confidence  you'll need for the rest of my workout programs. It might take you a few weeks doing these type of Beginner routines, but once you get there, nothing will stop you. Don't get discouraged by the jump rope, you can always do the cardio exercises without the jump rope and you can practice jump roping outside of this workout if you want to. The most important thing is to get your heart rate up and make sure you keep on moving through out the entire length of the video. Do not pause the video even if you're having a hard time to keep up. Pace yourself and don't worry if you can't do the same amount of reps as me, just don't take a break. You can slow down, but keep going until it's over. Do this routine every day until the next Wednesday when I'll give you a brand new workout to focus on. Try to push yourself harder every day and make sure to leave me a comment about your improvement. I can guarantee you that every day you'll notice a difference in your strength and endurance. By the end of the 7 days, you'll make this workout your... [more]

    I don’t know why but I really struggled this past week. Maybe just a bad case of PMS, I’m not sure. I was in such a funk. I didn’t work out at all and just felt down. I decided to ease back into my routine with this one today. It felt so great and it really showed me how far I’ve come in the ZGym over the past year. This workout used to be a struggle for me and today it felt nice and easy and was just what I needed to get my head back in the game. Today is a new day, time to put this week behind me.

    Wow, it’s amazing how far I’ve come in the ZGym! The last time I did this workout, I had taken a week off from working out so it didn’t feel as easy as it did today. Perfect recovery workout for me today. It got my heart pumping a bit and my blood flowing and woke me up for the day but I didn’t feel wiped out at the end at all! I remember when I could barely keep up with Zuzka on this one!

    If anybody is reading this and you’ve been hesitant to start working out in the ZGym, I promise you it works! Yesterday I did Cardio Shred #11 and it was very tough but still doable. There was a time when I would never have even attempted that workout. This is the strongest I have ever felt, even 10 years ago when I worked out regularly with a trainer in the gym.
