Double Trouble: Melissa Bender Fitness Workout

Hi Everyone,
Cydney is back for today’s workout! She was at the gym doing cardio before she came over for today’s workout. She ran 1 ½ miles. I power walked three miles on the treadmill with the incline turned all the way up. I was reading a really good book that I didn’t want to put down while I worked out, so I improvised and got in a great cardio burn while I was reading. I set the treadmill on 4 and the incline on 12. By the time I was done I was dripping sweat.
Cydney and I used Kettlebells for a couple of the workout moves today, but as always I showed the bodyweight variation for the exercises. Hand weights can be used just as well, or even soup cans.
I am planning some high intensity workouts this week. There will be some high intensity interval training, and lots of fat burning. Be sure to check back!
