Today’s workout is a throw back from my 30 Day Workout Challenge. This workout will get your entire body working on high, with major fat burning.
Prior to filming this workout I hopped on the treadmill for a 30 minute run. I got in 4 miles and felt great the entire time. I definitely felt the fatigue from my run when I was going through this routine!
I am often asked about the benefits of doing cardio pre- or post-workout. Both methods are beneficial, so I like to switch it up. Most often I recommend doing cardio after your workout to ensure that you are able to maintain good form throughout the workout without fatigue. For this workout I think I would have been able to push harder through it if I did the cardio afterwards or split it into two miles pre, and two miles post. However, running or doing a thorough warm-up is also beneficial because your body is already running and ready to optimize your calorie burn.
I got in a 3-Mile run and 1-Mile walk yesterday. I was also planning on filming, but my body was feeling very fatigued so I decided to take it easy.
I hope you all have a great day & enjoy today’s workout! See you tomorrow with a new one!

Hi Melissa, I like to mix things up like do two different ab workouts instead of the same workout out twice. Does this matter or does one get better results by repeating the same reps 2x or more.
