6-Month Home Workout Challenge: Week 15 #BFBodyFit

Standard
Please follow and like us:


Welcome to our workout schedule for the week! You can find the individual workout breakdowns and full length workout videos below.

We have a well rounded workout week, with a bonus focus on building a stronger core. A stronger midsection supports every exercise you do. You core helps you maintain proper form, and protects your back during exercise.

Of course, we will still be getting in an amazing Total Body Workout, over the course of the week. Each exercise routine can be completed 1-3X. Choose your number of rounds based on how you feel, and your fitness goals. If you’re feeling extra motivated you can pair these workouts with 15-30 minutes of cardio of choice.

Always focus on using proper form, and modify the exercises as necessary. Sometimes, modifying is the best way to respect your body, and progress your strength and fitness. Remember, if it’s challenging for you that means you are working in the right intensity zone.

This week I also challenge you to add one healthy habit into your day. This can be meditation, eating more vegetables, staying hydrated, identifying three positive things about your day…the possibilities are endless. Share your healthy habit in the comments below, you never know who you might inspire to give it a try.

Enjoy this week’s workout schedule! You have done an amazing job making it to week 15!

    I need help. I know you get 100’s of these e-mails, but I’m just hoping you’ll read and reply to mine.
    I’ve been working out for easily 20yrs. Over the last 4-5 I have barely missed a day, including Holidays (today is Easter and I’m in my basement gym). Nothing I’ve done, short of only eating 2x’s a day, has trimmed my midsection.
    I’ve tried multiple diets and over 200 workout plans/programs. I really need help. Please.

      It sounds like your training is on point. HIIt is one of the best techniques for building lean muscle and burning fat at the same time.

      I’m not a fan of super restrictive diets. I like the anti-inflammatory diet, which focuses on foods that reduce inflammation in the body (very similar to Mediterranean diet ideas).

      It’s impossible to spot train, but having a stronger core, can help improve visible muscle development and is functionally very important for your overall health. I hope that helps.

    Hi K-C
    I know you want Melissa’s response, but I understand your struggles. Here is some things I have learnt, you probably know it all .
    * we can not fat reduce in spots, its all over fat loss. Everybody holds onto fat differently. Knowing, understanding and appreciating your body is paramount (that is one major reason Benderfitness is the best, it is a practices in balance)
    *Nutrition and our natural hormones are responsible for 85% of our physique, . exercise 15%.
    here is a helpful link

    *remember youth is mobility, stay strong and be proud of your commitment to your health.

    Hello! I can relate to your struggle. I just turned 39 this week and in all honestly what I found to work is combining these workouts which I swear by as well as a program called Stronger U. It’s a nutrition based program where your coach gives you set macros for the week. You track for the week, check in with your coach at least 1x a week (or every day if you want) give feedback and they do the adjusting to meet your goals. You don’t have to. After 4 kids I finally have abs for the first time in my life and I’m not starving or working out all day. Honestly, no joke. Check it out. Hope this helps. Good luck
    bender fitness rocks!!!!
