Was feelin extremely overwhelmed & just did finished this ZWOW and got extremely pumped from beating Zuzka’s time!! (It’s only the second time I’ve ever beat her!) Now I’m ready to work! :)
no burpees and lunges is the reason why i simply adore this workout. pushed really hard with minimal rest time, glad that I beat my previous timing of 29:23.
Modified the pistols on a chair. Was slower (about 1 min) than the first time, but then I had to substitute the pistols for backward lunges.
Getting better on the pistols! Love this zwow!
Definitely one of my favorite zwows! I still do the pistol squats with a chair but getting stronger. Loved it!
did the pistols without a chair, but held the wall for balance.
I did modify the Pistols and the push-ups, because i can’t do the regular ones :) Love this workout… i defintly feel my abs now
By the end, my pistol squats barely resembled pistol squats, but I still made sure I felt the burn! A very long and intense workout, i love it!
I didn’t do pistol squats but one leg squat. I can’t do pistol squat.. (I’m working on it). 2 kg weight.
2.5kg sandbag as my ‘water bottle’. Had to hang on to a rope around the door handle for the last 4 sets of pistols….50 per leg in total is just pure evil and so hard to keep good form when you struggle with them – so frustrating they really put me off :( Shame as I enjoyed the rest of the workouts. Maybe I’ll swap pistols for burpees next time cos that’s easier! ;)
Same weight. Mostly assisted pistols again. Still struggling with so many of them in this workout. If it wasn’t for them though this workout would be too easy.
After zwow 44. 2.5kg sandbag. 7kg dumbbell for Russian twists and one set of pistols. Other pistols assisted by rope. Had to stop at 3 rounds as my knee was hurting and I don’t want to over do it before my hols. Long cycle ride this afternoon to make up for it :)
I have to modify pistols big time… like holding onto something with each hand! And I still find them killer, having a hard time to straighten out my leg at the top. Will I ever be able to do these??
No worries Tina, with practice you’ll get better and better at pistols :)
Thanks Marla, I appreciate the vote of confidence. :) BTW – love this site!
Since I began to wobble during the (chair) pistols, I had to stop. And I did the push ups on my knees for the last two rounds.
I still struggle with the (chair) pistols in the 4th round, so I didn’t dare to try the last round. But at least I did full push ups the whole time and I beat my score :).
I had to do it again so short after my last try. If I can’t do the 5 rounds at least I need to be much faster. And I did improve a lot! In the first 2 rounds I nearly kept up with Zuzka :)!
But my left leg is still stopping me to do one more round :(.
Same modification and not all rounds.
Next time I will at least try the fifth round.
Yes, 5 rounds and faster than Zuzka (my 2nd or 3rd time)! I’m so happy that I finally did all rounds. The pistols and push ups in last round were really hard. But I made it :).
Yeah! And I didn’t really push myself because it’s getting hotter but I tried to do it without longer breaks. Just little water breaks :).
I know it's Friday evening but maybe you should consider doing a 5 minute workout before you go… www.instagram.com/p/BBbUmYAhkH…
