Today’s workout is focused on building strength and definition to the arms and lower body. One round took me about 12 minutes. I followed it up with jump roping. I did 500 jumps over my jump rope, which took between 3-4 minutes.
This workout can be repeated if you want a longer, more intense workout.
I used two 20 lb dumbbells, and my barbell is 75 lbs. Choose a weight that is challenging for you, and focus on using appropriate form.
This workout is a throwback workout from one of my 30-Day Workout Challenges: http://www.benderfitness.com/2013/12/30-day-workout-challenge.html.
I am officially past my pregnancy due date, so Baby Bender could show up at any time now. I will keep you all posted! I have mentioned this several times, but I am super excited for the workout series I have written for once I am cleared for exercise after the baby comes. I can’t wait to start filming new workouts!
Hi Everyone! Wanted to update you that I am still feeling great! Baby Bender is getting bigger by the day & I am now 40-weeks pregnant. 😊 My energy levels are good. I got in a great walk after work & my doctor appointment today. Did you try the HIIT Boot Camp workout I posted? I can’t wait until I can go full out in new workout videos with you all again! www.BenderFitness.com #benderfitness #40weekspregnant #fitpregnancy #babybelly #babybump
Have fun with today’s workout!
