I hope you are ready to work up a sweat today! Today’s workout is a 30-Minute HIIT Total Body Workout & Fat Burn. You get to workout with both of the Benders, which is fun. We used dumbbells for some of the exercises. If you don’t have dumbbells don’t fret! You can choose to do the exercises with bodyweight, or grab something from around the house to add a little bit of resistance.
Adding resistance to your program will help improve your results. You will improve your metabolism and build lean muscle. Body Weight HIIT is fantastic for maintaining/building lean muscle and burning fat, but it’s also important to vary your program. Challenging yourself with multiple training methods is a great way to make that happen.
Unfortunately, I am still very sick. I posted on Instagram & Facebook, that I have been fighting the Flu. It’s been almost a week, and I can’t get rid of the symptoms. I was at the doctor this morning, and they think that because I am nursing and can’t take anything to treat the illness it is just lingering longer than normal.
I am able to use a neti-pot, and drink lots of tea or hot water with honey, so I am focusing on rinsing and staying hydrated. Hopefully I will be back to working out with you again soon. I normally get the flu shot every year (my job has always required me to do so, because I work with an at risk population of patients). This year I was sick the day before I was supposed to get the shot so my doctor recommended waiting. I didn’t follow up, but this is a good reminder of why I get the shot each year. Maverick had a flu shot, and so far he is displaying no symptoms, and I am praying that continues. I don’t want to see him go through this.
I did film a workout last week (the day that I started getting sick). The only problem is that Maverick decided to Roar and practice Dragon noises during the workout. I’m not talking about once or twice, a lot! So I have to figure out how to edit the video around his Godzilla noises. I haven’t been physically up to doing it yet (the sinus pressure makes my eyes feel like they are going to pop out of my head when I look at the computer for too long. I will get it done soon.
I hope you enjoy today’s workout!
Melissa, Jesse & Maverick

Awesome workout. I did this one after a 2 mile run and another Mile of one minute sprints. I am so so sweaty! Been following for about 4 years now too! Love love love your workouts! I had my 6th baby a week before you had little maverick. And your workouts have whipped me back in shape. Thanks so much for all you do! I would love to show you my progress but don’t know how to post my before and after photos. Thanks benders!
Yay! That was a great workout! Y’all seemed so happy and it was fun to have you both cheering us on!!

<3 Thank you!
Loved this workout and the both of you together!
I’m training for a dualathon (run 5k/bike 20 mi/ run 5k)
And I’ve incorporated your workouts into my training.
Thanks for the great workouts!
Awesome!!! That sounds like a great event! Let us know how you do!!!
Yes- looking forward to the event. Ha! Just realized I spelled duathlon wrong! Oops! Going to fast, lol!
Hi Bender Fitness,
it was a really good, intense and long workout !
With a warm up, 30 burpees, a cool down and some essential stretching for me, it was perfect,as always 🙂
Thank you Bender Fitness !
Possibly my favourite workout of yours yet. Thanks!
I am doing it wrong. 🙁 🙁
I didn’t burn near the calories (154 according to my fitbit) and I thought I pushed hard. I must be a wimp.
