Today is Day 2 of my 30 Day Workout Challenge! The challenge is completing a minimum of 15 minutes of exercise per day for 30 days.
Yesterday I did a 15 minute workout: Day 1: 15 Minute HIIT Core Fat.
Today I did a 20 minute interval workout. I modified one of the workouts I did with my boot camp class. I interspersed cardio bursts with max repetitions. The interval breakdown is 30 seconds cardio, 50 seconds max reps.
This workout is broken into three sections: lower body, core, and arms. You work your entire body, and burn fat at the same time.
I chose to jump rope, but high knees, jumping jacks, or cardio of choice (anyone up for more froggers?!?) can be substituted.
I was so motivated by seeing everyone’s check in posts for the challenge that I followed this workout up with a run on the treadmill. I definitely surpassed my goal of 15 minutes per day today. I got in a total of 43 minutes of exercise, and I feel amazing. Thank you guys for the motivation!
Keep checking in here or on facebook, twitter, and instagram!
See you tomorrow!

I Love your website and your workouts!!!! Keep up the great work!!!!

Melissa, my name is also Melissa. Let me start by saying that really enjoy exercising with your videos. I feel like I am getting the real deal. You exercise along the way, not caring to look sweaty. Thank you for your great workouts. I am going to re-start again exercising (too busy with school). So I have almost a month and a half to workout really well. I would like to be toned. I am 5feet tall. I weight 107 pounds and I am 30 years old. Oh and I am vegan. I would like to tone my belly. First because I want to have a flat belly, and second because I have back problems, and I feel that having a strong core would help my back. What routine do you recommend? should i focus in loosing the belly fat that I have by doing cardio or should I work on toning my belly? Thank you Melissa.
I am loving this challenge. I did day 1 & 2 and I loved them both. Thsnk you Melissa, awesome workouts.
I just finished the workout. Bring on Day 3!!!
Woohoo!!! Just did this one followed by a 15-minute HIIT workout!
I am staying really dedicated this month because I may have overindulged during Thanksgiving..oops!
Thanks for the 30 day challenge, especially during December! 😀
Yay! Did it! I am so excited about this challenge!! Thank you!
Done! Didn’t have as much time as I’d like to do something after, but got this workout in. Thanks Melissa!
I started a couple days late but just finished this workout and loved it!! Thanks for what you do Melissa!!
Ps. I’m in school for being an Occupational Therapist Assistant, it makes you very relate-able!
Great workout! Thank you for sharing your expertise, Melissa!
Day 2 finished! Really hard for me, but I did it. I don’t do as many reps as you. I’m taking it slow and making sure my form is good. Feels really good to feel things move that haven’t moved in over 14 months!!
Melissa, I am so glad I found your blog…I am doing the 30 day challenge and last night I finished day 2..and wow, it was challenging. I loved it. I am looking forward to doing day 3 tonight. You are awesome!
Day 2 done!
Love your workouts! I used to do bodyrock but they are too gimmicky now. Thanks so much for putting these together!
Exact same story over here! Haha!
Got one round of this done! And that will be it for this video of Day 2. The burpees almost made my lunch come up. Any advice on how long to wait after eating to exercise? Did this one an hour to an hour and a half after my lunch.
Awesome workout…could not do the forearm reverse plank but will work on this for next time. Thanks!
Great workout! I broke it up into two sections! It was really challenging for me! Awesome though! Cannot wait until I get my endurance up so I can keep up with you! 🙂
great workout !!! gave me a challenge 🙂

Thank you for the great workouts. I have started this 30-day challenge and I am excited to do them all every day. Thank you.
awesome! love your workouts! feel the burn 😉
Thank you for this challenge! I was looking for a routine instead of jumping around on youtube workouts. And this is just perfect for me. I love interval workouts and you are a great motivator. How do you keep smiling through it all? 🙂 I love it and I love you. Thanks again!!! Looking forward to day 3!
is there anyway to slowly work up to the reverse plank?? day 2 round 1 success! round 2 right after naptime for my baby!
Awesome.! Thank you for the workouts. Looking forward to becoming fit with your workouts. 🙂
starting day 2! day 1 was tough because I have had 4 C-sections. but I have made a goal to drop a pants size in the next 30 days through diet and exercise and I am determined to do it! thank you for the videos you are posting.
Just completed Day 2! I am so incredibly weak, it is soooooo sad!!!
Stareted yesterday. Didn’t quite make it through that one. I shortened the intervals on this one to 20/40 and made it but just barely. Dripping sweat. Looking forward to tomorrow. Thanks so much for making these available. They’re awesome!
Day 2. This was intense and my arms definitely wanted to give out. Making some modifications to these since I’m not as strong, especially upper body, as you. Gonna be sore but will push through. Thanks for the challenge!
Started this challenge on 8/21/2016- because who says you have to start on the first of the month! Just finished day 2 and loving it. Thank so much for making these free!!!
Blast from the past… this was sensational and if only you could see me doing skipping with the invisible rope! That’s again Melissa
Love this one!!
