WARNING: BRUTAL metabolic meltdown coming through!
This workout will leave you dripping with sweat and you’ll need to dig DEEP to finish all 4 rounds. It’s a SERIOUS challenge: make sure to modify for your level. It’s ALL bodyweight, no equipment required! You can kill this anywhere and with anyone.
I really LOVED this workout, and so did my bootcampers! Give it a try, but be prepared to SWEAT! Take breaks when you need to, and hydrate throughout.
9 exercises. 1000 reps. INTENSE. CRAZY. AMAZING.
How To Do It
Squeals! Jumps! Pumps! Yays! I haven’t been this excited about a DVD in a LONG time. Can’t wait to get my hands on it. Yay Zuzka!
3 DVD’s. 12 workouts. A 30 day calendar. 277 minutes of sweat.
I’m thrilled that it fits all my criteria for awesomeness in a DVD: not too expensive ($15.95 plus shipping), tons of workouts (over 12! I KNOW!), a realistic diet plan (IF you need one: very simple, pretty much the same things I recommend: clean eats, not being obsessed, making room for treats), intense & short workouts, a calendar, and designed by one of the most bad ass ladies I know.
ALL for only $15.95.
At the moment, it’s only shipping within the US. I had it shipped to a friend in the states, then waiting for it to arrive here.
To celebrate the release, we’re doing a 30 day challenge group, starting on February 1st 2013! This gives everyone a little bit of time to get their shipments, and for those of you who aren’t sure yet, you can follow along, get instant feedback and learn about the DVD from real people before investing. It’s an open group, so invite your friends! 30 Day Challenge Group.
Will be posting progress on Tumblr too, so no worries if you’re not on Facebook! I love all my peeps, won’t leave you out! xo

Hardcore Holidays! Stocking Stuffer Challenge: 100 Dancing Crabs
Total body with emphasis on the core today! This is a challenging move that will work your whole body but requires a little concentration and balance. Move slowly to improve your form, then add speed as you’re more comfortable. Engage your core and glutes throughout. :)
Beginners: if needed, lower your hips or keep your butt on the floor or pillow, and alternate sides with the toe touch.
A. Come to a ‘table top’ position, on all fours, with belly facing the ceiling. Keep hands over your shoulders.
B. Distribute your weight evenly, as you lift your hips up towards the ceiling. Torso is parallel to the floor. Squeeze your glutes and engage your core to protect your back.
C. Transfer your weight to one foot as you kick the other leg up towards the ceiling. Try to keep your hips as lifted possible as you kick. With the opposite hand, reach up towards your toes.
D. Touch once, then replace your hand and heel to the ground. Repeat on the other side. This requires a lot of balance: move slowly to protect your joints, then add speed once you’ve mastered it.
Advanced? Try 50-100 Deadman Crabs instead! Very challenging, so pick a rep range that’s just outside of your comfort zone.

Hardcore Holiday Challenge! Day 8 Stocking Stuffer: 50 Elevated Hip Bridges
Hip bridges are a fab exercise, a great way to strengthen your hamstrings and glutes. Placing your feet on an elevated surface makes this simple move VERY challenging. Make sure to engage the glutes, core and listen to your body: this may be too tough for some of you, but it’s perfectly fine to do them from the floor. You can also use a swiss ball, a roller, or any other piece of equipment that suits your fancy.:)
Because people of all levels are doing this challenge, I’ve added a ton of modifications for you to choose from. Pick the HARDEST modification you can handle, and do as many as you can.
Basic Bridges From The Floor
Many of you won’t be ready for elevated bridges, and that’s okay! Try them from the floor instead, with both feet or on one leg (25 per side). See photos below.
Tips: curl your tailbone under and contract through the core to really engage your glutes. Don’t worry about lifting up high: just work on really feeling the contraction. Shoulder blades stay on the floor & back is flat: don’t arch.
