ZWOW #41

After a long time I decided to do one of Zuzana's ZWOWs. :) I knew my fitness level dropped and that I'd have a tough time doing it, but I'm glad I did it. My goal is to gain my fitness level back to what it was in spring this year (I had a crazy workout schedule before I hurt my knee and I was destroying workouts one after another). I really want that back. :)

Anyway, here's the workout breakdown:

1. burpee step up - 10 reps
2. row & twist - 10 reps each arm
3. prisoner jump squat - 10 reps
4. doggie leg swing push up - 10 reps each leg

I managed 3 rounds in 21:13 min using 7 kg for rows. Afterwards I decided to do Tatianna's Simply cut abs workout, but it was too much for me and I finished only one round.

Gosh, I can't believe I'm going to say this, but I'll have to switch from regular exercise form to beginner's variations from time to time, especially with Tatianna's workouts. However, I don't want to risk an injury, so I have to be careful.
I read a fitness motivation quote that had me thinking what changes I can make in my life. "You have 9 months untill summer 2013. A new person is born in 9 months." There LITERALLY is no excuses to slack and put off things I know I can change. Not only regarding physical and fitness level changes, but also in terms of personal growth. This one matters to me the most.


  1. I am always surprise to see how fitness can have an impact on my personal growth. When I train, after I feel more empowered and have more self confidence. Have a nice day

    1. Tank you, Zolasoleil! :) And yes, exercising does impact my self-comfedence, too. I'm guessing it has a lot to do wit different brain chemistry (because body releases different substances after a workout, usually endorphines) that promotes good feeling and optimism in general. A nice day to you, too! :)
