ZWOW’s are considered HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) and they work your entire body. If one ZWOW is enough of a workout to get your entire body engaged and if one is challenging enough for you, no additional movement or cardio is required.
My Personal Experience:
Personally I do not.
When I was training for triathlon I did not do any typical cardio/running training. I swam, I biked and I ZWOW’d and that was all. ZWOW’s are similar to CrossFit, the only difference is the heavy lifting component. Additionally since ZWOW’s are meant for at home use there is also no gymnastics component, unless you consider the handstands (my favorite!).
If you’re looking for something to supplement your ZWOW workouts I would recommend lifting heavy things. Just remember fitness (in my opinion) is 90% the food we eat, 9% consistency and 1% training. (These numbers are completely made up, but you get the idea of what is most important.) :)
In the words of my friend Vic, who’s been training folks since 2001, “treadmills are for gerbils”. Vic’s take on fitness: “Eat real food, train in a manner that is continually challenging, allow for rest and recovery, and repeat with consistency. That’s it! Everything else is smoke and mirrors.”
If you’re looking for variety beyond the ZWOW’s I’d highly recommend Vic’s Fat Loss For Free program, which includes 4 different 12-week workout plans, a 12-week sample meal plan and instructional videos of each movement. You’ll find a few other products that Vic has available for purchase on his site.
