This is Day 21 of the 30 Day Workout Challenge. This is a low impact lower body workout. Don’t let the lack of plyometrics fool you this is still a challenging workout. 🙂
One round takes 15 minutes, and it can be repeated up to 4 times. Remember, the lower body houses some of the largest muscles in your body. Strengthening these muscles gives you power, and increases your metabolic rate. More muscle=higher calorie burn during exercise and at rest. Also muscle is what gives your body shape. Increasing muscle to your glutes and hamstrings is one of the best methods of decreasing cellulite and dimpling.
Enjoy the workout!

Just did this for my “easy” day. Also added 3 sets of 50 lb deadlifts. Can u say OUCH. My butt is super sore. I love it though. Thanks again Melissa.
Did 2 rounds…and I KNOW I will be feeling this one tomorrow! Thanks Melissa!
I have a question about the challenge. I found out that I am pregnant, and I was wondering if you think this challenge is safe to continue? I really enjoy it and would like to finish. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks, love your workouts
Congratulations! If it’s early in your pregnancy you can still do all of the exercise moves, but you want to watch your pacing.

Listen to your body, and don’t let yourself overheat. If you have any concerns definitely talk to your doctor about them. 🙂
