Today’s workout is all about strengthening and sculpting our midsections! This routine combines cardio with sculpting exercises to burn fat, while building strength.
Every other exercise in this workout is Mountain Climbers. If you have wrist problems you can substitute jump rope, high knees, or cardio of choice. You can always modify your workouts to suit your needs if you have an injury or restriction.
This workout can be repeated to increase the intensity, or you can pair it with my 30-Minute Dumbbell Workout for Arms, Back & Legs (or another workout of choice.) The other option is to pair this workout with 30-Minutes cardio of choice. I paired it with a 4-Mile run outside.
I hope you enjoy this workout! See you soon with a new one!

I loved this workout. I needed a break for the jumping for my knees.
This was a challenging and effective core routine. thanks so much
Thank you Melissa. I really don’t love core workouts but I did it anyway and worked up a really good sweat too. You’ve been the only fitness person that has a core workout that’s challenging for me but doesn’t hurt my back. Thank you for that! And thanks for posting the plank workout challenge a few weeks ago. That made me be more consistent with my planks. I do them 3x per week and I’m up to holding them for 1min 17 sec! That’s so good for me! Plus im seeing so many postive changes in the tone of my core. You’re such an inspiration. Thank you!
I have been doing your workouts for almost 2 years now and this is by far the hardest core workout. I have done this workout about 10 times now and still need a little break when you get to temple tap abs. Thanks for all your workouts, I can tell you are a really hard worker and really care about fitness. Your workouts keep my body balanced and strong!
