Quick Workout: Arms, Abs and Butt

Hi Everyone!

I have a new workout for you!

During this workout I did High Knees as my cardio of choice, but you can substitute jumping rope or an alternate cardio if you prefer.  I repeated this workout 4X. The video below was filmed during my fourth time through the workout, and I was definitely starting to get tired. 

These are the actual workouts that I do to stay in shape. When you see me sweat, struggle, and breath heavy it’s because I am working hard. I think it’s important to share the struggles. 

Workouts should challenge you! If they don’t, it’s time to push harder or modify what you are doing (remember the high knees with weights in my Sweat Burn Sculpt: 18 Minute Workout? That’s one way to increase the intensity.)

Don’t be afraid to push yourself. If you need a break during the workout, take one and get right back into it as soon as you are able. I mentally kept track of my reps and tried to beat my number of reps for each exercise when I repeated the rounds. It’s a good way to motivate yourself to keep moving. 

I hope you enjoy the workout!
Melissa

  1. Hi,
    I was wondering if you have an alternative to the pushup or modification. I have recently had surgery but have been cleared to exercise again. My doctor doesn’t want me to do pushups or bench presses anymore though. Thanks for your inspiration to stay fit and healthy

    Hi Melissa,

    Who is your yoga training through? I am universal yoga trained and we use double mats like I saw in one of your vids. Just curious!
