Hi Everyone!

This day only happens once every 4 years, so in honor of Leap Year we are doing the “Leap Your Way to Abs” workout. 

In the video I forgot to show the equipment free variation for the ball pull-ins. If you don’t have a stability ball go into a plank position and bring your knee to your elbow before returning to plank. Alternate legs. 

Tomorrow starts a brand new month! I love March because it marks the beginning of Spring (plus it’s my birthday month!) So look for lots of new workouts. I can’t wait until it gets nice enough to start filming a few outdoor workouts. 🙂

See you tomorrow,
Melissa

Beginner: 10 reps
Intermediate: 15 reps
Advanced: 20 reps


Bonus: Do 10 minutes of cardio! Check out one of the cardio video workouts, run or jump rope. I ran a mile on the treadmill, and added in some extra jump squats to bring it up to 10 minutes. 🙂
