Body Weight Blast Workout

 

Hi Everyone,

Tonight is a fun workout. I included a new Burpee Variation, Low Jack Burpees. I really liked them. It was a fun challenge. This is a full body workout, with an emphasis on strengthening your core. 

I ran a hill workout with the girls on the Cross Country team yesterday (those girls are fantastic! They really pushed themselves.) As a result, I definitely felt all of the thigh, and glute exercises today. I went through the workout 2X and walked a mile on the treadmill. I wanted to run, but it is important not to over train, and to let your body rest. 

I am still in second place in Fitness Magazine's "Face of Fitness" contest. Voting goes today, and tomorrow: Vote Here! if you haven't voted yet today. Being the Face of Fitness would be a dream come true for me. :) Thank you to EVERYONE who has voted, and supported me. It has meant so much to me. 

I made Vegetable Beef Stew for the first time today. I was going to share the recipe, but found that stew doesn't photograph particularly well. So if anyone wants the recipe comment and let me know, and I will share it. I promise, it's much more delicious than it looks!

I hope you all enjoy the workout, and are having a great weekend!
Melissa

  3. I love your workouts and use them often! But I also like when you do real time workouts, as I never know until I'm halfway in (and committed) that your not doing all of your reps! I also REALLY like the body weight only workouts...as I have no equipment most of the time. Many thanks!
