Get a Tight Body at Home: Workout

Hi Everyone!

This was my workout last night. It is a full body workout. I worked my arms, legs, abs and back, while incorporating some moves to increase heart rate for the cardiovascular benefits. 

Decline Spiderman Plank
Tonight I am teaching a yoga class, so I won't be able to post a new workout. There will definitely be a new workout tomorrow. I will also be posting another recipe, and my review of the protein muffin mix I tried out this week. So plenty of things will be up for all of you weekend warriors out there! Is there a recipe that you would love to find a healthy version of? If so, please take a moment to post in the comments section below, or tell me on facebook. I love trying out new recipes, and substituting things to create a healthier alternative. 
I hope that you all enjoy the workout! Have a great night!

  1. I'm always looking for ways to add more protein so anything that has protein powder keep em coming!

  2. Hi Melissa, thanks again for a great workout! You did the cardio after the there a difference doing it before or after workout?

    1. I've always preferred to do cardio before so I'm warmed completely up and burn the most calories, however, I do 3 full sets of these videos and if I do a hard core cardio first then I can barely make it through 2 sets. So it just depends on the person & the style of cardio, I'd say.

  3. Thank you for sharing nice information this blog. i am very impressed your blog.

  4. I'm a new follower and I have to say you are now my favorite fitness girl!!! I love how balanced your workouts are. You don't only focus on the aesthetically pleasing muscles everyone else does (abs, glutes, quads), but you also add in moves to hit EVERY muscle group (back, hammies, tris). I'm currently in OT school so that makes it even better :]
    Anyways, I just wanted to say I loved this workout. It killed my abs, especially my obliques. Keep it up. I know many people really appreciate the time you take to create these free workouts you share with us.

  5. Yeah! What a great blog you have published. I like it and i will share it to others.
