Upper Body & Abs Inferno #8 X

 | 79 Comments | Upper Body & Abs Inferno


In this workout we continue to challenge ourselves with some of the most brutal upper body and abs exercises. I've been getting a lot of comments about my pull up station, so I just wanted to let you guys know that I found one on Amazon.com that is almost exactly the same as I have. It's the Body Vision PT600 Power Tower. It's a little pricey, but really worth every penny. I love having my own jungle gym at home. If you can't commit to this one, I strongly suggest you get at least a basic pull up bar that hooks into your doorway. Unfortunately, there are no modifications for pull ups or chin ups that would give you the same benefits or results. This series is about maximum strength, so doing bent over rows with our medium size weights is not going to help. Even if you were to use a really heavy weight for the bent over rows - it won't improve your pull ups. Only pull ups will improve your pull ups... [more]

    My chin ups and pull ups are still a work in progress. But I was able to do the other exercises and even tapped the wall a few times! Going to do the bonus and then call it a night. Thanks for the challenge!

    Hi Zuzka, I missed this one yesterday, so I did it today. The Dynamic push up / elbows bend plank hip side to side / elbows bend plank leg lift , the Leg raise / side to side knee tuck / pull up & the One leg on the ball forward pike roll were kind intense. Love this series! xoxo

    Zuzka, amazing challenge! I felt as if i’d been pregnant clumsy cuttlefish )))).
    I thought I could deal with the ball.. Haha. Well, working on the proper form and technique.

    Thank you for the ideas!

    This series is excellent. I have so much more core control than before, the ball pikes are slower and more controlled, and I can take all my weight off the ball. The only thing I can’t do is that shoulder stretch as I feel I’ll injure my shoulders – so I replaced with a knee tuck in the ball and then a separate shoulder stretch whilst sitting.

    short workout and intense. Love it. I love that Zuzka is also taking short break. It makes me realize that I am not the only one having a hard time with the workout. That zuzka is also pushing herself like all of us. Thank you.
