Today’s workout is a doozy! Saturday is when I have a bit more time to create a more intense, longer workout. This one took me 36 minutes and 40 seconds. There were a few exercises in here today that I found really tough! On the last set of Burpees I really wanted to quit half way through, but I am so glad I pushed through and did all of my reps! I feel so wonderfully energized now.
Tonight I am going to add on 15 minutes of jump roping before I take my shower, just to get in a bit more cardio.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
Jiggle Proof Thighs and Butt
Beginner: 10 reps, 30 seconds for timed exercises
Intermediate: 15 reps, 45 seconds
Advanced: 20 reps, 60 seconds
Note: I used my interval timer for both cardio burst portions of the workout. I did 50 seconds of each timed exercise, with 10 seconds of rest in between. If you don’t have one use a stopwatch, over timer, cell phone timer, or you can guesstimate. I am putting the number of reps I fit in for each timed portion below). You can time your entire workout so you can see improvement as you repeat this one over time.

Great workout! Inspiring the masses!!
Oouch, it was so long and brutal… 🙂
My reps for the timed exercises:
My total time: 45:33. It’s much slower than your time 🙁 Side Plank Series very slowed me down. But I pushed really hard and I’m satisfied this workout. Also after a 1 minute break I did 15 minutes of cardio. I feel wonderful now 🙂 Thanks a lot, dear Melissa!
Awesome Job! That’s still a great time. As long as you are challenging yourself you are getting in a great workout. It sounds like you definitely pushed through!
Thank you so much for your kindness and support!
