Today’s workout is a 20-Minute HIIT Boot Camp. This is a full body workout, that will get you sweating, and work Everything! This is the format that Jesse and I typically use in our live group Boot Camp classes: 30 seconds of Cardio bursts between each exercise.
Go for maximum repetitions, and push yourself on the cardio bursts. They are not meant to be a rest break between exercises (although sometimes when you really feel the burn on a specific exercise High Knees can feel like a relief!)
During High Knees, be sure to engage your abdominals and get those knees lifting. This will help strengthen your core, and ensure that you maintain form.
As of today I am officially 40-Weeks Pregnant! I think Baby Bender may have missed the memo that today’s his due date. I have my 40-week doctor appointment this evening, and for the first time I do have a mild low back ache. That could be a sign that I am getting closer, or it could just be a late pregnancy symptom.
I don’t mind waiting for him, but it’s definitely exciting to know that we could be meeting the baby at any time!
Well, I am headed to work now! Every day my patients say “Are you still here!?!” and I tell them “Yup! I’ll probably be here tomorrow too. This baby is comfy cozy in there!”
Have fun, and check in on Instagram: @BenderFitness for me, and @BenderCrosby1 for Jesse. We will definitely update when I go into labor. We are also on Facebook: @MelissaBenderFitness

Absolutely loving your workouts, Melissa. Started them in January and am feeling fitter than ever before! Congratulations on your due date, hope all goes well and you continue to feel comfortable until the debut!
Tackling this workout tonight. My goal is to do the lunge jump/squat jump the whole time between each exercise! So excited for Baby Bender to make his arrival. I’ve been following you’re blog for over a year now and I love it. I tell everyone about you. Thank you for all you do.
Great workout today!
