Sculpt Your Body Home Workout: Melissa Bender

Hi Everyone,

This was my workout today. I went through the entire routine 3 times. I didn't time the first one because I was doing it on video, and taking my time explaining the movements. My second time through it took me 14 minutes and 49 seconds. My third time through was actually the fastest at 13 minutes and 23 seconds. 

I focused on moving as quickly as I could from each exercise to the next while maintaining proper form. By the time I got through all three rounds I felt like I had gone for a hard run. I was covered in sweat, and I felt like I got a nice intense workout. 

I also did a bonus round as soon as I was done filming this workout. Check that out here: Bonus Round

I am trying out some new healthy recipes tonight so be sure to check back for that as well. 

Enjoy the workout!
