I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving! I don’t know if it’s an after effect of yesterday, or if this was a really tough workout, but this one was HARD for me! My thighs were burning like crazy!
I am going to be posting workouts all weekend, so be sure to check back tomorrow for a new one. 🙂 I am also starting a month long exercise challenge for December. It’s a commitment to getting in a minimum of 15 minutes of exercise per day. During the holidays it can be hard to stick to your workouts, but it’s important to make time for your health all year long. Research has shown that most people put on weight over the holidays. Unfortunately the majority of people don’t lose that weight, and it starts to accumulate each year, which can result in an unhealthy proportion of body fat. If you’re up to the challenge let me know in the comments below, on facebook, or on twitter.
Enjoy today’s workout and get ready to Burpee!

This one was sick! Did this in advanced level. Now I’m sweating so much, my arms hurts and I’m feeling amazing after this workout. Thank you really much, Melissa. 🙂
Wow! This is new go-to workout whenever I feel a little masochistic!
You have got superb fitness.
Seeing you doing Ninja Jump I think you can beat any men on this planet.
This is one of those exercises that I hate with every fiber of my being, but I do them anyways.
