HIIT It, Sweat It, Sculpt It

Hi Everyone!

We had a busy (but fun!) weekend in the Bender household. Unfortunately I did not get to do any official workouts, but I stayed very active. I am looking forward to starting tomorrow off right with a new workout. 

In the meantime, this is a challenging workout that I did at the beginning of the year. 

One round of this workout takes 20 minutes. 

This workout can be performed with body weight, or you can increase the intensity by adding weights. 

I used a barbell (total weight 75 lbs), and two dumbbells (20 lbs each). Remember, the number one focus is always form. Choose a weight that you can use while consistently maintaining form, that is still challenging for you. When you are lifting or setting down your weights be sure to keep the core tight and the back straight. Always protect your back!

If you don’t want to use a weight you can substitute cardio bursts of your choice during the 30 second intervals. Some great options are: jump rope, jumping jacks, high knees, mountain climbers or froggers. 

I hope you all enjoy the workout! 🙂

Melissa

PS This is one of the things that kept me busy this weekend. 🙂 Skydiving was AMAZING!

  1. Hi Melissa, I’m 4’11” and 109 lbs. I want to get rid of my belly jelly – the rolls I get on my tummy when I sit down or bend over. What workouts and timeframe do you suggest? I’ve been doing your 23 minute high intensity workout for the past four days, and I feel good, but I’m not noticing results just yet. Do I need to workout for longer periods of time?

  2. That was awesome workout , I started with 75 lbs midway through the first round I wen to 65lbs intell I could not pick up over my head then went to 55lb second around and quiet after the second round and walk for 30 mins to cool off I love the works out give me some thing different to do then the same things. Thanks ! From sara
