Bodyweight Beginners #5

 | 17 Comments | Bodyweight Beginner Series


This workout will raise up your heart rate and really target your core. The combination of cardio and core training is great for fat loss and it will really help to slim down and strengthen your midsection. I want you to watch the workout breakdown so you can get familiar with each exercise and try it before you do the workout. Focus on proper form. Once you feel confident that you can keep good form, do the workout and try your best to complete as many reps as you can for each interval. You don’t have to follow along with me. I did each exercise with an average speed, so I’d like to encourage you try to be faster than me and do more reps. Have... [more]

    This is such a great bodyweight series. I changed to regular push-ups, and I loved the mermaid to plank exercise. It’s harder thank it looks. Thank you, Zuzka!

    Loved this one! Used my weighted vest and went at a bit faster speed than Z. I prefer these type of workouts over more complicated ones.

    This workout really showed me how one part of my body is weaker. I can’t wait for shower after this! It definitely lifted my mood 🙂 thank you Zuzka!

    These beginner series’ have been a godsend. Between school and work, I’m doing 12 hour days on my feet every day. I had stopped working out due to exhaustion and hunger from this long schedule. Regular workouts seemed to just be making my body more sore and strained. I had to swallow my pride to go back to doing beginner stuff, but I still sweat, and they leave me feeling amazing and ready to tackle the seemingly endless day ahead. Thank you, Zuzka, for being so versatile and creating workouts ideal for every situation. You’re a goddess!

    I’m not a beginner, but was feeling really exhausted after I came home from work. I modified it to my level (full PU, handstand hold) and still had an amazing sweat and feeling of accomplishment.The Mermaid plank is deceptively harder than it looks, loved it!

    I tell you, when you’re pushing your hardest through these workouts, the “beginner” part becomes irrelevant!

    Well, I did this at almost 11 pm 😀 And my sweat is running down my cheeks… EVerybody is sleeping and I was waiting for this moment to finally do some exercise. Loved it for many reasons – it was bodyweight, no trainers needed, short, intense, great combo of exercises, and least but not last, I feel amazing 🙂 Thank you 🙂
