Welcome to #BFBodyFit Workout Challenge Week 21.

We have a great workout week planned.

Day 1:

We are starting this week with a Tabata workout. It’s a great Total Body routine, and I think you will like it. It’s short, but intense, so push hard and challenge yourself to get in maximum repetitions.

Tabata Intervals: Each segment is 8 rounds of 10/20. 10-seconds of Rest, 20-seconds maximum repetitions.
Aim for 1-minute of Rest between each segment (rest breaks are slightly longer in the video, because I demonstrate the exercises).
Jump Squat
Lunge Jump
Plié Jump
Tuck Jump 
Mountain Climber
Temple Tap Abs
Side Plank Hip Tap – Right
Side Plank Hip Tap Left
Donkey Kick
Heel Tap Jump Squat
Pendulum Hop 
High Knees
Cool Down!

Day 2:

Since we are going high intensity on the first workout, we will do a Low Impact Standing Workout for Day 2. I actually love this workout. It is unexpectedly challenging, so don’t be surprised if you feel some muscle fatigue a few days later.

Set Your Interval Timer for 14 Rounds of 10/50. 
Right Balanced Leg Pulse: Side
Right Balanced Leg Pulse: Front
Right Balanced Leg Pulse:Back
Left Balanced Leg Pulse: Side
Left Balanced Leg Pulse: Front

Day 3:

Today is a Total Body HIIT Burn Workout. It’s has some fun and challenging moves, that I think you will like.

Set your Interval Timer for 15 Rounds of 10/50.
Squat Jump

Day 4:

Grab some dumbbells. We are going to focus on strengthening and sculpting the lower body. I love Lower Body Exercises. The lower body houses some of the largest muscles in the body, so working your Lowe body is a great way to build power, while boosting your metabolism.

Intervals: 10 Rounds of 10/50.
Beginner: 10 Reps
Intermediate: 15 Reps
Advanced: 20 Reps
*If you are using very heavy/challenging weights aim for between 10-12 Reps per exercise.

Split Squat: Left
In/Out Squats
Warrior Deadlift: Right
Warrior Deadlift: Left
Curtsy Lunge: Right

Single Leg Glute Bridge: Right
Single Leg Glute Bridge: Left
Repeat 1-3X
Optional: Pair with 15-30 Minutes Cardio of Choice

Day 5:

We are focusing on sculpting and strengthening the core. Your core helps protect your posture, and form during pretty much every exercise you do. A strong core, improves your stability.

15 Rounds of 30/50.
*30 Seconds of Cardio of Choice Before Each Exercise*
Note: I burned 200 calories during one round of this workout. Calorie burn fluctuates with height, weight & intensity level.
