FitNut of the Week, Zuzka's Power Yoga and Lifted Butt Series Workout,BR Lean day #6! My posts on

FitNUt you ask? Yes, Fitness and Nutrition for the week! 

For the Week Of December 14th

I have a video this week with one round of  a short, but intense workout.

NOTE: Not all exercises are suitable for everyone and this or any other exercise program may result in injury. To reduce this risk of injury, please consult your doctor before beginning this, or any other, physical fitness program. Any user of this program assumes the full risk of injury resulting from performing the routines presented within this blog.

Jump rope, Burpee, Pistol Challenge

Be sure to warm up first.

This video (CLICK HERE) is ONE round of the workout.

Perform 50 skips with a jump rope.
Then do 5 Superman Burpees.
Then 5 (assisted) pistols each leg.

Now you can do this as a cash out at the end of your own workout - for 5-10 minutes.
Or you could do this as a full workout 20-25 minutes. 

RECIPE OF THE WEEK for adults:
Homemade Guacamole
2 very ripes avocadoes - peel and mash well with fork.
1 diced tomato, diced onion, jalapeno pepper - as much or as little as you like
1 tsp of lime juice
Sea Salt and Black Pepper to taste
Delicious and no chemicals, additives or preservatives! 

Peanut Butter Balls
1 cup of organic crunchy peanut butter
2 Tbsp of organic honey 
MIX these 2 together very well.
Then melt 6 ounces of dark chocolate (atleast 70%) with 3 ounces of coconut oil
You can do it in the microwave but be very careful not to burn. If you have a double boiler you can use one of those.
Scoop out the peanut butter honey mixture with an ice cream scooper and place on parchment paper.
I use a kiddos paint brush and dip it into the chocolate mix and paint over the peanut butter so it's nice and thick.
Freeze for at least 2 hours. EAT!

Parallette Bars - great for assisted pistols (as well as push-ups, L-sits and leg swings)

Use it for a moisturizer, Chap Stick, eye makeup remover, hair de-frizzer, as body lotion and even in baking. 

ZUZKA has her Power Yoga and Lifted Butt Series posted today. It is about 30 minutes long and looks great - a fantastic combo I thought, and I like that is was another longer one. I particularly liked the chair squat to lean forward backward lunge combination. This is one of those workouts that is great for an active rest day, but is still harder than you'd think. 
She has not posted her schedule for next week yet, but I'm curious again as to what it will be like. I wish she would post these EST the night before so we could see the workout and prepare for the next morning. 
Zuzka also posted another recipe (Chicken Pot Pie) that again uses a lot of almond flour. I wish she would use a substitute or recipes that require something else. As I have said before almond flour is very caloric, high in fat and can often go rancid when cooked at high temps (much like olive oil can). 

BR Lean day #6 is here with Kelsey. It is a Bosu workout which is a bit disappointing because most of us don't have one. This was more of a cardio workout, not as much of a strength oriented one as her others were. Kelsey also goes a bit harder on the legs, where Lisa always seems to prefer upper body and abs. 
She did a great job leading us through this workout. She seemed relaxed and like it was fun for her. I loved her pants too! 
After Friday looks like we will have 2 weeks off from new workout videos. Lisa is back on the 1st with HIIT Max 3.

Two more of my posts were put up on BR's FB page and on

Enjoy reading them! :) 


  1. I did Day 6 of Bodyrock Lean and I'll admit -- I didn't watch the video, and don't have a Bosu, but based on the name of the exercise I modified to what I felt it would be and was able to get in a good workout. Not that you're not capable of that; your knowledge and experience base is much more vast than mine! But I was short for time this morning in the way of watching the video so it was kind of neat to just have at it and hope for the best. That's not always an option for everyone, but it worked for me. I might have time to watch the video tonight so I might repeat Day 6 the appropriate way and do Day 7 immediately to follow.

    Love these FitNut posts -- thanks, Gina! :)

    1. Sometimes you just have to make do! Glad you like the FitNut posts. :)
