Beating My Personal Best! ZWOW #1!


Well, Zuzana has not come out with ZWOW #15 yet, so I went back to the first one and my goal was to beat my personal best in time.

If you don't remember, when I did this the last time, I had an inflamed rib cage (or something like that, lol). So I had skipped the push up in the burpees. This time I did all of the push ups and I still beat my time! :) I had to modify the dive bombers. I was able to do about 2 normal ones and then I had to get down to my knees. I only had to modify my burpee push ups on the last round by doing them on my knees. If you don't know what I'm talking about here is the link to the workout!

Here is the list of exercises:

10 Dive Bombers
5 Burpees
20/20 Squat Leg Lifts
5 Burpees
10/10 Side Plank Lifts
5 Burpees
10/10 Pistol Squats
5 Burpees

3 Rounds for time

My time about 3 weeks ago: 26 Minutes and 45 seconds
My time today: 21 minutes and 45 seconds
Let me just add that Zuzana's time was 24 minutes and 3 seconds!! I beat her!! BUT I did sissy dive bombers and I certainly don't go down as low as she does for my pistol squats. Still pretty damn exciting!!!

Here are some pics!
Dive Bombers:

Screw this, I'm going on my knees!

 Squat Leg Lifts:

 Side Plank Lifts:
 Pistol Squats (That's about as low as I can go):

So pretty happy about tonight's work out! I had a busy day and I still fit it in. I skipped making dinner, since my kids aren't here, just so I could get this work out in. When Jim came home and was forced to fend for himself, you would have thought he never stepped foot into a kitchen before. Jeez. LOL.
Take Care!



  1. Hi Lori,
    I did Zwow #1 again last night and when I do Dive Bombers I hear my shoulders make bizzard sounds like if they «crack». Do you hear your shoulders like mine when you do those dive bombers? My form seem good, I don't know what I am doing wrong

    1. Yes! I get the same thing! I don't think you are doing anything wrong. It definitely happens to me too.
