    so hard! In particular 1-2-3 burpes! I have used 2 dumbbells of 3 kg (6.6 pounds)

  2. SCORE: 11:23

    Great workout! I did full clapping pushups for all rounds and I used 20lb DBs for the 1st round of squats and 15 lb DBs for the 2nd and 3rd rounds

  3. SCORE: 10:47

    Clapping push-ups were harder than I though especially after burpees and mountain climbers.

  4. SCORE: 11:55

    ! jeez, i can’t breathe!

  5. SCORE: 14:25

    Strict mountain climbers were tough after burpees!

  6. SCORE: 12:10

    Clapping push ups are much harder then they look. There was no way I would not go on my knees.
    I used my 15 pounds sandbag.

  7. SCORE: 17:06

    Wow. Tough tough tough!

  8. SCORE: 10:00

    The burpees were killing me! Strict mountain climbers were super hard too. Used a 8 kilo kettlebell for lack of dumbbells.

  9. SCORE: 11:29

    My second time doing this workout! The first time I forgot to time myself so I had to do it again just to get in on record :-) Used 8 lb weights this time around – MUCH better than the 12 lb-ers I tried the first time!

  10. SCORE: 10:17

    Dripping sweat and loving it! I’d rather be doing these outside but now that it’s colder I have to resort to our workout space inside. It’s been 3 weeks since I’ve done a ZWOW because I’ve been doing CrossFit but the first 3 exercises definitely gave my shoulders a workout.

    Even though I can do the regular clapping pushups I had to go on my knees with this sequence. I used 20lb dumbbells for the squats. Goal for next time: regular clapping pushups!

  11. SCORE: 12:48

    Jesus Christ and all saints out there ,,, this was a killer :D I have to agree with others, clapping push-ups look easy but are not !!! I’m sweating like a pig!!! :D

  25. SCORE: 11:09

    Did this today after #39. 6kg dumbbells. It’s so hot here today, sweating buckets! Off to drink about a gallon of water!

  26. SCORE: 19:26

    Doubled the mountain climbers!

  27. SCORE: 20:20

    Uff, tough workout. The third round took me as long as the first two rounds together! I think I can’t move anymore…

  28. SCORE: 19:17

    Yeah :). It’s so hot here (got the sunny side of the building), so I’m really glad that I was faster. I didn’t expect that. I used 2kg dumbbells.

    • SCORE: 18:02

      I did this yesterday.
      Still far from Zuzkas score. It slowed me down a lot to do so many push ups and the squats are hard too but at least I improved (in spite of the headache I had…).

  29. SCORE: 18:36

    I was slower than I’d expected on this one. The clapping Pushups were tough but fun!
