10 minute AMRAP (As Many Rounds As Possible)
The ninja jumps are killers!! http://prettyfitsical.blogspot.sg/search/label/ZWOW%20%2321
Did this workout this morning after 50 rounds of the low jack/pike press/jump challenge that I completed in 7:26. Did both workouts in the 85 degree Portland sun on our balcony. Goal for next time, 5 full rounds. This is really one of my favorite workouts!!
Did this in the home gym this morning and lost track of how many rounds I was at, either 5 rounds + 16 squats or 4 rounds + 16 squats (wasn’t awake yet!) :P
Totally didn’t think I was doing good on this while in the middle of it, just not feeling well still BUT I beat my previous scores so that’s a definitely plus!
with a simplified version as I couldn’t do the handstands (did a burpee instead) or the ninja jumps (had to walk into the squat). Not there yet ….but fighting!
Still can’t do the hand stand, did a mule kick instead. Don’t know how to jump into squats either! What’s the method? Is there a simplified version?
You may want to do wall walks to help work on being upside down and feel the handstands from a different direction. Just don’t hyperextend your back and be sure to keep your core straight. Here’s an example of the move: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K7DaRCQh0lY
I still have trouble with the ninja jumps too. I started by sitting on my toes, rolling off of them, pushing my butt back and standing up. I worked up to getting quicker with it the more I did. If you look at Zuzka’s video at 2:44 she shows a quick mod for the jump.
Thanks Marla, this really helps. I’ll practise!
Zuzka completed 4 rounds not 5! I managed the handstands well this time. Thanks Marla for the Ninja jumps explanation. I did much better this time! I like this one now! :-)
1 round more than the first time. Still can’t do ninja jumps, I modify by putting me hands on the ground while jumping into the squat.
I completed a full 5 rounds in 10 minutes. Then I did 2 round of the following exercises (for a grand total of 300 rep workout):
20 bicycle abs
20 Rusdian twists using 10lb weight
20 scissor lift abs
20 Left oblique crunches
20 Right oblique crunches!!
I kept up, but I didn’t have trouser trouble.. Getting there though!
yay! the first time i completed 5 rounds. :))))
hand stand modification, but ninja jump regular:)
Did this after doing zwow 11. Deadman burpees instead of handstands since I didn’t have a free wall.
i did deadman burpees again b/c i did this at home without a free wall during my daughter’s nap.
….with the last couple of side kicks after the buzzer. Not the best after digging in the garden all morning but not bad to say a couple of weeks ago I couldn’t even do one ninja jump or handstand. Look forward to coming back to this one to improve my score
Love the handstands
I love handstand workouts.
