*Workout Video and Breakdown Below
Who is up for some tummy time? Everyone wants a strong core, and sexy abs. This workout will definitely challenge every part of your core. Say goodbye to love handles and muffin tops, and hello to a tight, toned stomach.
When working the core it’s important to strengthen all of the muscles of your abdomen, while simultaneously burning any fat that is hiding your abs. This workout incorporates moves that tone your muscles, and challenge your cardiovascular system at the same time.
I went through this workout twice, and followed it with 2 miles on the treadmill to add some extra cardio to my day. November and December were difficult for me to get in my normal workouts and eating habits, and I was super tired. Now that I started getting my workouts back on track my energy level, and eating habits have followed.
I often find that the more consistent my workouts are, the more healthy the rest of my choices are as well. Working out can make you more aware of what your body needs. Be sure to listen!
Enjoy the workout,

Just did 2 rounds of this one. great calorie burner!!
I just found this site today, and I had been looking for sotmething or someone to follow with good workouts and a varity of them. I love it. I’m starting all the way from the beginning just because I’m not in great shape and I want to be healthy and fit but in a safe way. So my first workwout was from your fist post and I’m going to do the day by day schedule. I loved the workout. Thank you so much Melissa for sharing this with us and you are great in your videos in explaining them. I can’t wait to see results!
This was a wonderful routine, thank you Melissa! I can feel my abs two days later, luv it.
Just did this beginner x 3 rounds and 10 minutes of jump rope. Thanks again!
Wow, that cheek to cheek is great (and brutal!)
One of the best abdominal/core workouts I’ve ever done, and trust me, I’ve tried quite a few. Thank you so much Melissa for always posting amazing workouts! I always can count on your workouts to get my blood flowing and heart pumping!
I LOVE your workout routine! Just did your 15min HIIT and 2 rounds of this. Hoping to tone my abs but this is a good mix up from the normal routine. 🙂
Hey I’ve tried this workouts for a week now and I’ve been very strict, I’m doing the advanced level and I really think that I’m more tired that when I do my regular gym exercise with a lot of weight *o*…by chance I found your website and the 12 weeks workout program and I’m telling you I’m going for it!!! I will compete!!
manages 2 rounds, still saw abs from yesterday’s work out which I managed 3 rounds. great stuff
OMG! I was dying! I hated it, but glad I did it. 2 rounds advanced level
Could only do one round due to being lazy this winter
Somewhere I heard that the exercise you call cheek to cheek plank is called “rainbow plank” (like drawing a rainbow in the air with the butt) and ever since I have used this name. It’s sooo cute. The exercise is cruel but the name sounds fun 😀 Okay, I like the exercise, too.
🙂 I like that name!
It was horribly amazing!!! still need some endurance for all of the “timed” exercises… by the second round I could do less than 30 seconds… but I have to be patient. Thank you!
Day 11 completed!!
Wow, yes, Mr. Bender, you’re right. Melissa, you have a sweet but ominous giggle before a hard exercise! Ha ha ha ha!
Those plank jumps… Oh wow! I had to take pauses to keep up a good pace. Very challenging!
Thank you for this workout. Can’t wait for tomorrow ‘s!
Day seven completed!! 🙂
Thank you so much for this series, especially including your eating plan and daily routine. What a resource! Do you have suggestions for a quick but effective warmup? Hip flexors especially got tight quickly on this one.
