Summer Shred #6 X

 | 233 Comments | Summer Shred Series

This workout is really intense so don’t be surprised when you become too tired to get your butt below your knees when doing the diagonal swing squats or that you can’t keep as low as you intended to for low jacks. These are not big mistakes in your form, it only means that you’re not getting as many benefits because you’re too tired to stay low. That’s fine. You are still kicking ass and burning tons of calories. What you must avoid at all cost however is rounding your back when doing squats, lunges, jump jacks, swings, or double unders. The only time you should round your back is during the reversed burpees when doing the sit up and when rolling your back down to lay on the exercise mat. What you must avoid at all cost is shrugging your shoulders during any exercise (unless we do shoulder shrugs which we don’t).

More often than not it’s a bad posture and lack of functional strength that’s causing people to injure themselves during their workouts, however, you need to understand that there are 2 types of bad forms - one has to do with lack range of motion (either you’re too tired or you’re still working to improve your range of motion) and the other one is just a BAD FORM that can result injury or in reinforcement of a bad posture which will get you in the long run. Focusing on good form during the workout will also help you to improve your posture, flexibility and mobility so don't just rush through the workout.... [more]

    That was brutal absolutely sweating like crazy. I really do love the 20 second intervals, they are so much fun and I really push in such a short time. Thanks once again Z!

    I enjoyed the tabata style of this. By the fourth round I am getting the flow of each exercise and really getting into the challenge. It’s amazing how fast 10 seconds goes by! At just over a month into this I am feeling much stronger and with better range of motion in my hips (weakness). I will always appreciate your 110% emphasis on proper form. Thank you for a tough challenge!

    I’m totally dead … this workout kicked my butt and I haven’t been eating much lately so that didn’t help my energy level. Great workout Z!

    thank you Zuzka I will never go back to the gym to workout. I only go back to gym for swimming, hot tub and sauna. Love your workout short but very intense and equivalent to 1 or more in the gym.
