I hope you’re ready for today’s workout! It’s quick, but very effective. One round of this workout takes 15 minutes, but it can be repeated up to 3X. This is a very dynamic routine, with plenty of kicking, punching and jumping. As with all of your workouts you get out, what you put in. So focus on form, and committing to the full range of motion for each movement. Listen to your body, but push yourself through the workout.
Jesse and I were out of town for the weekend, and I couldn’t get my computer connected to the internet in our hotel! It threw off my plans for weekend posting, but I did share links to two workouts on my Facebook page over the weekend.
Workout 1: Ultimate Body Weight Workout
Workout 2: 19-Minute HIIT Fat Burning Workout
We had a great trip. Maverick handled the car ride, hotel stay, and eating in restaurants like a champ. I can’t believe he is 4-weeks old today!
A few things you may not know about me, I am obsessed with elephants, I love coffee, and I am a total Comic Book/Superhero Nerd. Our trip was to the Columbus Comicon. Everyone was so nice to us and raved about Maverick & we had a lot of fun. We met Ian Somerholder from Vampire Diaries (I loved the books way back in the day when they originally came out & I am hooked on the show now), Amy Jo Johnson (the original Pink Power Ranger), and Kevin Sorbo (Hercules) came up to us to talk to us about how cute Maverick is.
One of the highlights of the show was running into one of our BenderFitness workout buddies!
As a reminder, my new workout program with all new workout videos is scheduled to start on Sunday August 21st. On Monday August 22nd, my new DietBet challenge is starting: www.dietbet.com/BenderFitness. It’s a weight loss challenge where you bet $25 that you can lose 4% of your body weight in 4-weeks. To figure out 4% of your body weight you multiple your current weight by .04, and that is the amount you would be aiming to lose. All of the bets are put in a pot, and the money is split by the winners (everyone who hits the 4% goal) at the end of the game.
I hope you guys enjoy today’s workout! I can’t wait to be physically working out with you again, instead of just in spirit!
