Deb, you come up with the best stuff during vacations! You need to go away more often.

I'm impressed that Zuzana can do so much with those heavy kettlebells attached to her chest.

LOL, Lexy! She does hold them well.

Sam, it's great to see you. It's been ages. I hope you're doing well.

You guys are welcome. Even though it's tough, I felt great afterwards. My son drove my car to work, so after eating a banana, I put Sadie on a leash and we walked into town to get my car. It's almost a two mile walk to where he works.

The workout below is what I came up with while I was on vacation. It's a combination of Cotter's kettlebell circuit workout and Zuzana's 500 rep workout. I'll post a link to Zuzana's 500 workout so you can see how the bodyweight exercises are performed. I really love her 500 workout. It's one of my all time favorite workouts. I did switch the exercise order in the 500 workout. I did the abs workouts towards the end of the workout, and I eliminated the kettlebell TGU

1a-One Arm Kettlebell Swings-10 reps each side
1b-Prisoner Squats-50 reps

Debbie,

Thanks for your combos. I like Zuzana's 500 rep wo but I always felt that it was incomplete. Now, it won't be.

I thought up some combos but it usually involves kbs and the TRX too. I love using those with pull-ups, chin-ups, push-ups, and other bodyweight exercises.

Helen

Thanks Deb for another great workout combo. Do you have a suggestion for her Bodyweight Interval Training workout and Kettlebells?

Debbie, Great workout! I did it this morning. Lots of fun.

It reminded me of a circuit I used to do awhile back. I used a book that had "compound" exercises - combined movements, say chest press with hip bridges. I used to alternate those with IMAX 2. It took about an hour and was lots of fun. I need to find that book.

Anita, I'm glad you liked it! Yes, find the book and let us know more info on it.

Wendy, the majority of Zuzana's workouts are short and intense. I like to do her interval style workouts after my strength workouts. This past week I focused on her newest lower body and abs workouts. She did 3 workouts for abs and lower body.

This is what I did this past week minus my cardio workouts:
Monday-P90X+ Upper Body-Zuzana's lower body workout #1
Tuesday-P90X Legs and Backless 1st half (kettlebell swings during back work) Zuzana's Abs workout #1
Wednesday-Cotter's kettlebell circuit
Thursday-P90X+ Upper Body-Zuzana's lower body workout #2
Friday-Leg & Backless 2nd half (kettlebell swings during back work)-Zuzana's abs workout #2
Saturday-Kettlebell 550 rep combo

BBL was a bust for me, at least to date. So I'll be doing her lower body/abs routines for awhile. I much prefer working my lower body the way Zuzana works it. I also got the Tonique workouts and I'll try them out this week. I'm hoping I like them.
