Hi Everyone!

This workout is focused on the core. This is a tough 10 minute interval workout. This is an oldie, but you can look forward to seeing a brand new workout tonight, along with another Lower Body Challenge move. 🙂

I love core workouts because a strong core helps you in everything you do. It improves your balance, posture, and helps protect you from injury. 

This routine works every aspect of the core. It’s challenging and quick, but if you have more time you can repeat it. 


If you are joining me for the challenge don’t forget to check in on FacebookInstagram or Twitter. The check in posts are a great way to stay motivated and on track. 🙂

Equipment: Gymboss Interval Timer set for 15 rounds of 10/50. 

1. Right Plank Step
2. Left Plank Step
3. Up Dog/Down Dog
4. Bicycle Abs
5. Toe Tap Situp
6. Cross Plank (right)

  1. Hello! I love your blog Melissa. It is an absolute great work that you are doing. You are making workouts at home possible for those who do not have the time to go to the gyms. I would like to know the exercises to build strong and a little muscles in my lower body as my legs are very lean and my butt isn’t very curvy. I have always been thin despite my proper diet. I have been practicing Iyengar yoga for more than a decade. My core strength and stamina is also very good and even my upper body is quite toned but I’m underweight due to my genes. I have gotten my blood tests done and they all have come normal. As far as my diet goes, I eat 2eggs white omelette with 2 multigrain bread slices and a glass of bournvita for breakfast. For lunch and dinner I have chicken or fish with 2-3 rotis(indian bread), a big bowl of pulses and 2 servings of vegetables. Same goes for dinner. I have at least 2 servings of fruit everyday. Kindly let me know if I need to incorporate anything more in my diet and please guide me with a list of exercises for my lower body.

  2. So you do 15 rounds of this each time? I wasn’t sure how many times I should do it (as a beginner). Thanks for sharing your workouts! I love this one!
