Welcome to Day 23 of my 4-Week Workout Challenge! It’s a Boot Camp HIIT Day! One Round of this workout will take 20-Minutes. I also included a Trial By Burpee Rep Workout below. You can combine the workouts. I encourage you to repeat it 2-3X to get a total workout time between 30-60 Minutes.
I have seen some fantastic check-in posts on Instagram and Twitter (you can find me: @BenderFitness) and on Facebook: www.facebook.com/MelissaBenderFitness.
Fo the Trial by Burpee workout I encourage you to time how long it takes you to get through one round. Move quickly between exercises, and when you repeat it see if you can make it through just a bit faster. Don’t sacrifice form for speed. 100% of the time it is better to get in a longer workout with great form, than work at a high intensity with poor form.
Pregnancy update: I will be writing a post about workouts in the Second Trimester this week. I am feeling great. The past two days I ran instead of doing a traditional workout. Our refrigerator went kaput on Sunday and needed to be replaced. We had to throw out all of our food. I can’t risk eating spoiled food while pregnant. Our schedule was completely thrown off (I had plans to film Sunday and Monday!) We do have a new fridge now, but we still need to go grocery shopping to replace our food.
We teach our Boot Camp class this evening, and I am planning to film a new workout on Wednesday.
I hope you enjoy today’s workout! Have fun & let me know how you feel!

Hey Melissa, I’ve just found out I’m pregnant. Only 4 weeks but I am very keen to keep fit. It will be my 3rd child buy I didn’t exercise with my other 2. My youngest is 5 so I’ve kept very fit upto right now. I just wondered if you were going to or could you provide a schedule of workoits for the different trimesters. Even though I know i can prob exercise the same for the first 12 weeks it still frightens me!! Congratulations on your pregnancy also!! X
I definitely will be! You can definitely exercise the same for the first 4-weeks, just pace yourself more to ensure you aren’t overheating. Here is info about first trimester workouts: https://www.benderfitness.com/2015/12/working-out-in-the-first-trimester-of-pregnancy-what-you-need-to-know.html
I will be posting more schedules, I am behind on what I had planned because I have been more tired. 🙂
Congratulations on your pregnancy!
So Melissa now I’m 6 weeks pregnant would you sat I’m still Ok to do your most recent 4 week challenge you have been posting. I do normally go to the gym and use alot of free weights and cable machines but I just don’t feel comfortable using them anymore, maybe I’m a little paronoid?! I don’t to get out of the habit of going to the gym but i think if I had something to follow I’d be more inclined to keep to it. You are looking fab by the way! X
Excellent workout…although I could only do 1 round!
Another great workout by Melissa! So glad to have you.
Yes great workout Melissa! ! Very happy you are feeling well. Keep up the great work 🙂
Hang in there! Dealing with household malfunctions is exhausting! Thanks for always sharing workouts with us ☺
