Hi Everyone!
This was my workout last night. It’s completely focused on core. My tush was sore for two days after Lower Body Blast: Burn, Sculpt and Shape. Normally I don’t get sore (maybe 1-2 times per year. Jesse says it’s proof that I am an Amazon, haha). I enjoyed the soreness, but it was a great reminder to keep up the challenges. 

This workout kept me from overdoing it with my glutes. I also went for a run to get rid of some of the lactic acid build-up in my muscles. Sometimes when your muscles are sore the best way to help them heal is to get moving (as long as you don’t over do it!)

Enjoy this workout! I will see you later with a new one. 🙂

PS My motivation is going full force so I will have some exciting new goals to share with you!

    Melissa,
    I’m taking a reluctant break from your workouts for a little while in order to do a round of P90x with my husband (who is trying to get back in shape). We completed our first round of P90x about a year ago and I have been doing your workouts 4-5 x/wk for the past 5 months. I just have to tell you that my core is so much stronger after doing your workouts! I struggled last time with the ab ripper P90x workout and this time I have no problem completing the more challenging exercises. I love your workouts so much and I’m going to convince my husband to do one of your ab workouts in place of the ab ripper 3x a week. I think your workouts involve more of a total core approach vs just the rectus abdominus. Thanks!

  2. Melissa,
    I just did this workout on Wednesday night and my thighs are so sore!!! It was a great challenge! Agreed, I think I need to go for a run. Do you recommend another exercise to break down some of the lactic acid? Thanks for the great workout! Tanja

    Day 10, complete! Thank you, Melissa, for this workout. It is short, quick and very effective. I felt it!
    I had no difficulties with this one… I even went for a second round!
    Im loving working out with you daily.
    Thank you!

    On the New Year’s Eve I got stupid foot injury, I can barely walk, so this workout for me – the perfect solution. It took me 9:56 on the advanced level. In addition I did 100 kettlebell swings with 16 kg kettlebell in 3:20. Finally, I do not feel sick and unhappy, thank you very much, Melissa!
