Upper Body & Abs Inferno #10 X

 | 53 Comments | Upper Body & Abs Inferno


This is the last workout in this series, but only for now. I would like us to get back to the first routine and start it all over. Some of you have been stuck in the previous workouts and can't seem to make any further progress. That's very normal when it comes to challenging upper body exercises such as pull ups and handstands. What we're doing is almost gymnastics which does take a long time to master. Let's give ourselves more time to build this amazing foundation  and in just a couple months we'll be able to make more progress. I'll be including these workouts in our weekly schedule, so you just have to follow along and make sure to stay constant with your... [more]

    Hi Zu and friends…today we walked a lot, whole day from 13:00 up to 18:30 stopping few times to sit about 10 minutes. Streets were slope so we were mostly climbing all day long. I practiced Yoga in the morning with12 SuryaNamaskar in sequence and did few stretches in the evening along with 1:30 min extended arms plank hold. Finished with a mobility workout of 15 min. I am not doing more cardio because I can not lose a single gram of weight now so I am trying to eat little more (healthy food) and do less exercise to recover my weight as soon as possible! So see you all soon, take care.

    Did this one yesterday. Tough. I can’t do shoulder taps but I can shift my weight slightly. The ball roll to handstand has gotten better in that I can roll the ball and get my hips over my head to the wall. Im hoping I can do the handstand part when we go through this series again. My extreme mountain sliders have improved. The straight legged pigeon slide is still tough but progressing. I don’t have a bar so I’ve been hanging from my door and trying to pull myself up. Not cute. But I think my grip strength will improve. Does hurt my hands a bit. Oh well. No pain, no gain.

      I do the same with my handstand shoulder taps – Just shift my weight to the other hand for a sec. I feel like I should be able to do it, but just can’t seem to get the strength to fully lift a hand off the ground. Hopefully I’ll get there one day!

    This last inferno is definitely the hardest in the series. Brilliant routine. I can’t do those leg straddles on the bar – I just did leg raises with slightly bent knees. I can do shoulder taps now, and the handstand moves, though still have to do them very cautiously – especially the L stand which is so hard when your hands are in the correct position, close to the wall. I’ll keep doing this one until I improve.

    I still cannot master the handstand shoulder taps. My wrist ganglion just will not allow it – it must hit nerves when it’s fully loaded with all my weight. Managed everything else great and I’m so much stronger than the first time I did it. Finished in 20:28 today including going in and out my house from my mat/wall to our pull up bar.

    Hi Zuzka, I increased reps for the Handstand shoulder taps to 10 reps and the last exercise I did to a full handstand. It’s amazing how much I progressed, yay! Love, love this series. Thank you! xoxo

    This is a toughy! Those bicycle chin ups man!! My back muscles have gotten much stronger over this past year, so my biceps are struggling to keep up. I’m finding that my pull ups are easier than my chin ups as a result….wow…..And the one leg ball roll to handstand is also challenging with my 45 cm ball. I manage to do about 2 (sometimes more) without resorting to putting my head against the wall, but after that…I have to use the wall to get up. It’s tough! It is easier with a 55 cm ball, but I want to challenge myself so……

    Anyway, this workout, buy in included, took me about 14:20. I didn’t check what my previous time was, and nothing is written in my journal (oops). Nevertheless this is a great one. My abs are killin it!! I really like how much more toned my abdomen is getting. Thanks, Z!!

    Still tough. I will keep working on this one.

    This series, along with another handstand programme, has transformed my core strength and abs. I actually have visible abs without extremely low levels of body fat (in the past when I’ve dieted down to visible abs, my body fat has been too low). Zuzka, I’d love it if you could add some more Infernos to the series soon! I’m hoping to manage a press into handstand within the year, but wonder if that’s a bit ambitious 😊
