Tonight’s workout uses a combination of static and dynamic exercises that will focus on toning and sculpting your arms and abs. The combination of isotonic and isometric exercises provides a versatile challenge for your body that will help increase muscle endurance and strength. You may find that you are surprised by which exercises you find the most challenging!
I enjoy switching my workouts, and seeing how my body adjusts to the new demands. Not only does this keep workouts fresh and interesting, but it allows your body to develop a new skill set. Every challenge you present yourself teaches your body something new.
After this workout Jesse and I went outside for a run. The weather was in the 60s again, but the forecast is calling for it to drop back into the 30s. We took advantage of the weather and got in 3.5 miles at a comfortable pace.
I hope that you all enjoy the workout! I will see you tomorrow with a new one. 🙂 I am teaching yoga tomorrow evening, so I will try to get it posted before class. If I don’t I will post a link to one of my older workouts on my facebook page: www.facebook.com/MelissaBenderFitness

How often should I work out my abs? I really want to tone my core!! I also run 3-5 miles a few days a week and do your videos. Suggestions?
Loved this workout! I so need to work on my strength so this helped a lot. I really hope u post that you post that yoga workout cause I am also trying to increase my flexibility. Next will be to increase my run time….ugh! I hate running lol Thanks for all the great workouts.
I think I am at an intermediate level. I also commute by bike, so I arrive home tired and I think it would be impossible for me to do 20 reps during 60 seconds!
Day 17 completed! Yay!
Wow, those Angel Abs… Ufff, the hardest of this workout for me. I just couldn’t shift my legs to the sides. I’ll work on that.
Thank you for this workout, Melissa! You’re great, as always.
20:20… And nop! You’re not weird, you’re adorable!! 🙂
Love working out with you.
Take care. See you tomorrow!
