Welcome to today’s workout! Today we are doing a 15-Minute Standing Abs Workout Routine. This no crunch core workout is fantastic! Grab a dumbbell (or something from around the house to add some resistance).
This is one of my most popular workouts for a reason! It’s effective, fun and challenging. I am going to do at least one round of this workout today. As you can see in the workout video, this routine challenges me, gets me sweaty, increases my heart rate and breathing. As a reminder, these are the actual workouts I do. I’m not just creating a fun routine that I can breeze through without breaking a sweat. I write workouts to make me stronger, healthier, more fit, and that challenge me. I also make them fun and unique, because I get bored doing the same thing all the time. Plus, I want to improve my functional mobility and strength.
Exercise is so much more than achieving a physical aesthetic. Exercise can improve your quality of life physically and mentally. The bonus is that this workout routine can also help you get more defined abs! It will definitely improve your core strength, which translates to better posture, improved balance, less pain, and better pelvic position.
It’s been a long time since I filmed this workout and I am looking forward to doing it again today. There are so many fun core exercises! As I was watching the workout video I realized that I haven’t incorporated most of these moves into a new workout routine in a while.
New (Hopefully Temporary) Facebook Page (UPDATE: I got it back on April 29th!)
My New (Hopefully Temporary) Page is: http://www.facebook.com/MelissaBenderFit. If you’ve been reading my most recent blog posts or following me on social media, you already know that my FB page with over 520,000 followers was hacked and stolen from me. It’s been 12 days and even though I opened my Facebook case to get this resolved within 4 hours of the breach occurring Facebook doesn’t appear to be working on or making any progress in getting this resolved. I do believe that when someone actually reviews this case they will be able to get my page back, but it seems like I am in a queue somewhere just waiting to be addressed. So I am starting from scratch and hoping for the best.
If you are able to like and follow the new page, it would be a huge help to us. Facebook was my biggest platform, and the one I used most frequently. It’s where I drove most of my traffic to this page, and the amount of damage this hacking has done to our page (and my reputation) is immeasurable. The hackers also got my advertising account disabled, so I can’t even promote any posts or my new page. Right now we are entirely reliant on grassroots sharing (and the hope that what I’ve built over the last 12-years of blogging is enough to keep people coming back!)
Update: I got access to my Facebook Page back! It took 12 days, but I am back in. There are still some restrictions on my account, and it won’t let me change the name back yet. I’m sure that will be resolved soon.
I hope that you have fun with today’s workout! Thank you for working out with me.
