Hi Everyone!

This is day 13 of my 30 Day exercise challenge! I apologize for getting the breakdown posted a day late. I had a very busy day yesterday, so I didn’t get to workout and film this video until 11 pm. 

Jesse’s birthday party is today, and I had a lot of last minute shopping to do, and I had to pick up a very special cake for him. 🙂 I will share pictures later. 

One round of this workout takes 15 minutes. I alternated jump roping with core strengthening moves. Jumping Rope is a great cardiovascular exercise, with wonderful muscle building benefits, and high fat/calorie burn. Jump roping can burn around 11 calories per minute (this can go up or down depending on the effort you are putting into it). 

Remember, your core is more than just looking sexy on the beach, it is the support for every exercise, and every functional move you do in your life. Having a strong core improves your performance in virtually everything you do, and helps prevent injury. 

You guys continue to impress me every day with your #30DayChallenge check-in posts on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter

See you later today!

  1. I’ve been doing your 30 day original challenge and I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT SO FAR! It’s really motivating when I get home, tired from work and tell myself “okay, it’s only 15 minutes” and I do my 15 minutes and am pumped for another round or another workout. Your workouts are fun and encouraging – thanks for this!! I can feel a difference in my endurance already and this is only day 12.

      Typically I do them between 1-3X. If I am doing Cardio with the workout (usually a 30 minute run) I only go through 1-2X. If I am not doing any cardio I go through 2-3X. Listen to your body, and if you need a lighter day decrease the number of rounds. 🙂

      Hope that helped!
