BR.TV Season 3, Day 4 with Jacqui, BR.TV PLUS Updated with Season 3 Burnouts? Zuzka's Food Journal: What Zuzka eats in a week

OK, this workout I liked. It would be a GREAT burnout routine. And did anyone else notice Jacqui's gorgeous legs?

Here are the exercises:

I thought Jacqui should have gone deeper in her lunges and squats, but I know it is hard sometimes when you are keeping speed in a HIIT Style workout -  hence why I don't always like these kinds of workouts. They are good at getting your heart rate up, but not as efficient at working your muscles.

Also, LOVED her shorts. Would never have the guts to wear them in public, but they look so good on her. BR please add the workout brands to your list! Though I know these were Lululemon shorts as I am way too familiar with that brand.

I got an email from BR.TV Plus today with an update. I have not gotten one in a very long time. It is supposed to be with the burnouts from Season 3. So far it only has one burnout workout with Lisa and it is abs. YUK. I hate ab burnout workouts. I was much more interested in seeing the inner thi and the glutes one. I wonder if I will get another update on that?

Ok, I haven't visited Zuzka's food journal lately, but I did again today. It always BOGGLES my mind how little this woman eats! Unless you are a ZGym member you will not be able to get to the links below, but you can atleast see what she eats in a day or a week. I eat as much in 3 days as she does all week long. LOL.

  1. Ugh.. Where do I start? How do these foods fill her up for hours?! Half of them are smoothies for God's sake. And her portion sizes! An orange for a snack?! She must have great appetite control. I just joined a fighting gym and do boxing /sparring 3x a week and I have to really increase my calories on those days, or else I'll starve.
    And where's the veggies? I see avocado and not much else.

    As for Jacqui, she looks fabulous and I really enjoy her. Great personality. Great body.

    1. I agree, I just go so hungry from looking at her portion sizes. An apple and a smoothie is no lunch in my world. Her workouts are short, so it may explain a lot, but I am super hungry all day long and those portions would never fill me up for a second.

    2. I know - an orange??!!! I think besides appetite control, she just doesn't have a large appetite. I don't understand HOW she maintains her muscle mass on those little calories though. Goes to show you how much her genetics really are in her favor.

    3. Yes, that too! The muscle mass. Incredible genetics at play there.
      I've seen her videos from her younger years and her body was incredible then, too.

  2. One orange? I usually eat two oranges (or a big apple (300-350 gr) plus a big handful of nuts (25-30 gr) or cheese. :) That's A SNACK! XD.
    My daily kcals are 1800-1900 and it's deficite (I'm trying to burn fat on my thighs))).
    Sometimes I don't believe that she eats so little. But sometimes I think she does. Her workouts doesn't burn so much calories + they aren't long + she doesn't use heavy weights. But I still doubt about how she mantain her muscles on such poor diet and a lot of cardio... Hm.

    1. I saw something online somewhere where this woman wrote that she thought that Z was a total smoke show - LIAR. I don't know about that, but Z is in business to make sales. I'll see if I can find that article. But some people just don't have large appetites. My mom is like that. She'll go ALL day without eating and suddenly be like - oh, I guess I better eat something. GEEZ, I did not inherit that gene!!!! :) I LIVE to eat.

  3. I found whenever i count my macros i try to keep it 40% p 30% c 30% f my body changes so much. But it is so hard for me to be consistant with it
    Some days i have amazing control other days i eat a poptart before i even realize it

    1. I do better when I count macros too. I just frigging hate doing it!
