Today’s workout is all about the lower body! This is a throwback workout. I planned on filming a new workout this evening, but I have a headache that I don’t want to turn into a migraine, so I am taking the night off.
This morning I did a 4.25 mile Interval Run Workout on the Treadmill. If you want to do an interval treadmill workout you can try: This One.
I used dumbbells and a barbell for this workout, but all exercises can be performed with body weight or dumbbells. Select whatever is going to challenge you the most!
Even though this was a non-plyometric workout I was dripping with sweat and breathing heavily from the challenge of the workout.

Hi Melissa, I really enjoy your workouts. How heavy is the barbell you use? Would it be the same thing as using the 40 pound dumbbells?
My barbell is 45 lbs, and the weights bring it up to 75 lbs. 🙂 You can absolutely use dumbbells instead.
Oh my goodness….this workout kicked my butt!!!
Love this workout. It kicked my lower body. Thank you for sharing your workouts.
