Zuzka's Kettlebell Workout #5 for Beginner's, The BR Buzz App is Coming! How are those Burpees?

Zuzka posted her Kettlebell workout #5 for beginners. Again she mentions to go back and do the other beginner KB workouts before attempting this one first. I like that she recommends that. I find it a responsible thing on her behalf. KB's definitely have a learning curve.
A great workout for beginners and for those of us a little more advanced we can add weight or rounds to this one. I always like the versatility of Z's Kettlebell beginner workouts.
Tomorrow we have her Power Yoga #8 and then on Sunday it is Benchmark day. I am so curious about this workout!

So  - not sure if anyone else saw this or not, but BR is coming out with an app called BR Buzz.

Looks pretty cool to me! I see Edith I think on the front here, but no Lisa? No Sean? I find that odd.
But I am super intrigued to see what becomes of this as well. It would be great to have a BR or a Zuzka app. Would LOVE it.
I actually would love a Bret Contreras Strong Curves or Get Glutes app the best though. :) But that's my bias.

How many of you have a love/hate relationship with burpees? I have commented that Lisa doesn't do them with flat palms and her lower back sags sometimes - probably when she is getting tired! Zuzka always does them with flat palms, though I don't think I've seen her low back out of alignment - her upper back sometimes as she looks down when she is tired too and the push ups get tough. But that's not to say I don't do them all wrong either when I'm wiped. I've done the CrossFit Filthy Fifty. I'm sure my burpees were ugly! I only do competition burpees right now because my shoulder has been acting up. Sigh....
Anyways, I found this article about the safety about burpees and how so many people do them wrong - bad on the low back. Not to mention, not everyone can jump or do a push up. Jen Sinkler wrote an awesome article on burpee variations. So if these haven't been working for you, you might find one here that does. Have a look!


  1. It looks like an app for singles looking for sexy girls...

    1. LMAO! It SO does. I didn't think of that at first, but now that you mention it - it's all I see when I look at it. It's too funny. I think they need a fitness picture on the app instead.
