Hi Everyone!

I have a fantastic throwback workout on the agenda for you today. This workout is all about the Lower Body. First you get in an interval workout with me, and then you move onto a yoga flow with Sean Vigue. I really love this workout combination and the unique physical challenge that it presents. When you give it a try please let me know what you think about the combination. As always, the full length workout video and photo tutorial is below. You don’t need any equipment to complete this workout.

Sean and I have done several collaborations, and he has his own YouTube channel full of fantastic yoga and Pilates workouts: https://www.youtube.com/SeanVigueFitness

I am working on filming brand new workouts, but ran into some technical glitches. I filmed a Total Body Workout today (twice!) and when I went to add interval timers and captions to the video the whole thing glitched. I realized there was an issue at the end of the first round because the camera froze, so we immediately reshot the whole thing, but the playback on the second video stuttered and froze as well.

I am not sure what the camera issue is, or if we need to replace our filming equipment and software, but we are actively working on the problem. I’m feeling strong, happy and ready to film and I will not let this derail me. I might end up hoping on Facebook Live to share this workout, so keep an eye out there: www.facebook.com/MelissaBenderFitness

In the meantime, thanks for bearing with me as I share some throwback workouts and get back into the groove of filming regularly.

I have so many fun workouts planned. I can’t wait to share them with you!

Behind the scenes, I am still progressing with Martial Arts, teaching a Yoga kinesiology course at the University I teach for, and will be starting a jogging course in a few weeks. Jesse and I recently tested for our Yellow belts and are progressing with our training. I’m really enjoying the process and learning new skills.

If I had the time and money I would spend my days learning so many new things: ballroom dancing, foreign languages, guitar, piano, take an adult gymnastics class and continue my private ballet lessons (my instructor started law school so I stopped that a couple years ago)….my imagination goes wild as I think about all of the amazing things out there to learn. Time is absolutely precious my friends. If there is something you want to learn or try go for it.

Tang Soo!

If you could try something new what would it be? Let me know in the comments!

    So great to see you back, Melissa! 🙂
    I would love to learn Italian so I could actually talk to the folks there, I think it sounds fantastic. I recently joined a gym –yes, after like 5 years of doing Benderfitness! I just could not get my bum off the couch on my own at home anymore 🙁 that darn lockdown!– and am learning LesMills classes at the moment, like Sh’bam which is a lot of fun. Yet, nothing compares to working out with you, Melissa! You’re still number one <3
    Lots of Love from Germany,

    That was awesome! Thank you, I really like those collaborations!
    I know the Leg Series for years and always dread them but in combination with all those new exercises they turned out pretty nice haha!
    Thank you for all you do!
