Good Morning Everyone!
Today’s workout Combo uses a stability ball. If you don’t have a stability ball this workout is easily modified to be done without one so don’t worry! Today’s routine combines two 15 Minute HIIT workouts. If you do one round of each your total workout time will be 30-minutes. For a higher intensity burn complete each workout 2X for total workout time of 60-Minutes.
Focus on form with each exercise and warm-up for 5-10 minutes before your workout to maximize your results and decrease your chance of injury. Remember, warm-ups should always be dynamic (moving). Cool downs can be static (staying still and stretching). You don’t want to stretch cold muscles. They aren’t ready for it yet!
I didn’t get to workout yesterday, and I can’t wait to get in a good workout tonight. My body is missing the endorphins! I notice that when I don’t workout my energy level suffers. Exercise actually gives me more energy and decreases my cravings for unhealthy foods.
I hope you enjoy today’s workouts! Don’t forget you can find me on Instagram & Twitter: @BenderFitness and on Facebook: www.facebook.com/MelissaBenderFitness.

Great workout Melissa :))
Just a question..Will you be taking part in the dietbet? I’d just like to know for future reference if it would be healthy for a pregnant woman to be trying to lose weight ?
Thank you the two of you and my mum and I love your workouts!
Congratulations on baby Bender and happy new year to everyone. Lucy xx
I will not be taking part in it this time around. 🙂 It is not advised to lose weight or do a restrictive diet during pregnancy, unless you are starting out with a very high BMI, and then it would only be under the direction/guidance of your doctor. I might be hosting another dietbet after Baby Bender is born though! I will be coaching and interacting throughout the program.
I had a friend send me your way to get some advice on help and advice with exercises with abdominal diastasis recti. I’d appreciate any help I can get 🙂
This has a breakdown and video to help strengthen your core. If you have any questions please let me know!
