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]

    Hi Zuzka, This one was super intense!!! Also, the buy out, KB swings/ pendulums were a killer. Awesome wo! xoxo

    P.S: This time around, my JR DBUs were not happening, my coordination was terrible! I did a bit of practice afterwards

    I love this series. It is my all time favorite. Thanks for repeating it this Spring.

    And congratulations on your marriage! Marrying my husband was the best decision that I ever made. Yes sometimes it is challenging, frustrating and I feel like quitting (hmmm sounds like working out) but even that just makes it stronger and more loving in the long run!!

    And you certainly don’t shy away from love, challenges or hard work! Wishing you many years of adventures in love. 💕

    Wow, that was tough! Used my 25lb KB, probably should have used my 30lb-er. I did manage the 30sec handstands though! Yay for me! 😁

    Brutal one! I have to take a break between KB swings/pendulum sets. Also a bit longer break between rounds. Love this workout!

    OMG this was killer. I forgot how killer this one is. I did it with a 15 lbs barbell. Sheesh! I actually did this along with you, Z (I normally do it on my own to music or the news or a work recording, etc). You used a lighter barbell, but I still tried to keep up, and it was rough! Great workout! I did the buy out with my 45 lbs KB, so I definitely needed a pause between sets. I also did my handstands free standing and held them for as many seconds as I could. Overall COMPLETE and perfect workout! Awesome cardio!!

    Thank Goodness my Preworkout FB arrived today…..Zuzka has the fastest shipping ever!!!
    I remembered how brutal this workout was ……especially the buy out pendulums. They burn my entire backside 🍑🍑😅. Loved the Handstands, could feel a nice traction to my lower spine.
    I feel amazing!!
