I hope you’re ready to workout! One round of today’s workout will take 40-Minutes. This workout consists of three parts. I put the workouts together in one video, but if you are in a rush for time you can find each section individually here:
Our Workout Schedule for this week has been:
Thursday: Yoga Flow Workout: Lean Stretch Fat Burn
Friday: That’s today! 40-Minute Full Body HIIT.
Today is a very special day in the Bender household. It’s Jesse’s birthday! We will be doing some celebrating this weekend, but we will also (finally!) be filming some brand new workouts. In the mean time, I hope you enjoy today’s workout! It’s a great full body challenge!
Have fun today! You can find me on Facebook: www.facebook.com/MelissaBenderFitness, and on Instagram & Twitter: @BenderFitness
Let me know what you think about the workout and how you are feeling after this week’s workout schedule. Also, remember, you can adjust and add rest days to the week as you need. You should have 1-2 full rest days per week.
See you soon!
PS: In this workout I incorporated a difficult move: Pistol Squats. I demonstrate using a chair for balance. When practicing this move, go as low as you can while still being able to press through the heel to stand. If it’s too difficult (it’s a tough one!) you can sit on the chair, extend one leg in front of you and stand. Continue alternating sides.
