Born This Way Workout Scores

So I've been following for quite some time now. I haven't really managed to try doing her workouts though, it looks really tough, and most of them need a sand bag or a dip station, both of which I don't have.

Recently, I did my own "sand" bag, but have still not come around to using it. Its still alittle too heavy for me. I'll post up a picture of it later on, so you guys can start doing your own sand bags at home. It seems like a good variety to add to the usual workouts, since u can use it in many different ways.

This is the workout I did  yesterday. I also started logging down my workouts and timing so I can see whether I did improve over time, and I can push myself harder to get better times.

The breakdown of the workout is here. You can modify it abit and do it according to your own fitness level.

My modifications: 
-Instead of sandbag, I did with 5 lb free weights.
-I did the plank knee touches on my elbows.
-Instead of single leg squats I did a normal squat. My glutes were burning!

My score:
Part 1:
-Sandbag Sumo Squat (left)
12, 13, 13, 15

- Plank Knee Tucks
14, 18, 17, 17

-Sandbag Sumo Squat (Right)
13, 13, 13, 10

Part 2
-Sandbag Swing (Left arm)
16, 16, 17, 16

-Plank Side to Side Jump
18, 15, 19, 13

-Sandbag Swing (Right arm)
16, 17, 16, 17

Part 3
-Squat with side kick (left)
12, 12, 10

- Squat with side kick (Right)
13, 11, 10

To make up for the slack that I had by modifying it simpler, I finished the workout with:

20 crunches
20 left side lying leg lifts
20 right side lying leg lifts
20 lying back extensions
20 oblique twists
20 seated torso twists with 5 lb weight

Have u done your workout today? What did you do today, to make yourself feel better?

  1. Hi! I also follow some of zuzana's workouts but I incorp more weights into her workouts as they provide more gains (more fat loss and muscle gain) for me!
