I upped the ante with today’s workout. I increased my reps from 20 to 30 and it felt great. I was really energized today so I decided to go with it.
In the video I had trouble balancing on the Speed Skater exercise, so I did it more slowly during the workout. Adding the balance made it a bit more challenging for me. Also, the leg series on the ball was tough so I split it up (15 reps right, 15 reps left, 15 reps right, 15 reps left). I forgot to time it, so I can’t tell you how long it took, but I do recommend timing it so you can challenge yourself to beat your time when you repeat this workout.
Jesse and I followed our workouts with a delicious dinner of veggie stuffed omlettes.
Enjoy the workout!

Congrats to you. This sounds like a good starter dvd or a nice addition for people who want a faster pace on most days. I like how she talks about straining and explains everything. I’m interested in getting a ball.
Amazing workout, Melissa, thanks!
