Physical Fat Blast: Melissa Bender Workout
We are mid-way through the week! Yay! J
I just finished my workout, and I am feeling fantastic! In addition to today’s workout I did 15 minutes of cardio. I ran on the treadmill and did 2 miles in 14 minutes and 25 seconds. I am trying to re-incorporate more running into my workouts not only to increase my cardiovascular endurance, but because I want to do some more racing this year. Jesse is training for marathons, and we have been having fun running together (on his slow days!) I can’t run fast enough (yet!) to keep up with him on his fast days.
I am going to make a cardio tab for my blog so anyone trying out these workouts at home has options if they don’t have a treadmill or elliptical, or don’t like running outside. Jump roping is also a fantastic way to get your cardio in.
I hope everyone is having a fantastic day! Remember, if you’re just starting out you can do these workouts. Just build slowly, and feel free to comment below if you need modifications for any exercises.
See you tomorrow with a new workout!
