The Latest Workouts and Schedule From Zuzka - No More Killer Legs Already?

OK, sorry for being behind on posts, I was in NYC last week (fun!) and I have a sick kiddo.

Last week Zuzka did her 5 min workout #68:

Workout Breakdown
1. Dynamic Push Ups on yoga blocks x 5
2. Bicycle Toe Touch x 10
3. Side Plank lift (x2) to plank side knee tuck / plank side kick x 5/5
Those damn dynamic push-ups on blocks! I tried is again. I can get up onto one block, but not both without breaking a tooth - lol. 

She also posted her latest BodyCrush - an all bodyweight workout, which looked OK -  the squats into foot taps reminded me of a Melissa Ioja move: 

Workout Breakdown
1. Dive Bomber Push Up x 10
*easier variation: you can do the push ups on your knees
2. Plank to Pistol Squat x 10 alternating
*easier variation: you can do a regular squat or a backward lunge instead
3. Jump Lunge (x3) Sumo Jump Squat x 10
*easier low impact variation: backward lunge instead of jump lunge and sumo squat instead of jump squat
4. Foot Tap Squats x 20
*easier variation: tap your knee instead of foot
 Z's schedule for this week looks like this:

    Jump Rope Cardio Kettebell X #1 (Beat Your Personal Best)
  • Tuesday

    Cardio Shred #32 (New in ZGYM)
  • Wednesday

  • Thursday

I am glad to see a new Cardio Shred tomorrow - those have been some of her bast workouts lately - typically strength mixed in with cardio - and typically pretty intense. Wed she will do a pistol tutorial - I am curious to see that too. She does another Bodycrush workout this week, BUT NO Killer Legs - already? I wonder why. They were not that good IMO compared to many of her other workouts. I know I wasn't the only one thinking that.....
