Belly Fat Burn Workout


Hi Everyone!

As you can tell from the picture above I definitely got a good workout today! This workout is focused on toning all of the muscles of your stomach/core, while burning fat at the same time. 

Let's uncover those strong ab muscles so we can see all the results of the hard work we're putting in. :) The combination of strengthening moves, and cardio intervals will help maximize fat burning, while maintaining lean muscle. This results in a boosted metabolism, and increased firmness and tone throughout your body. 

I alternated every other exercise with jump roping. You could also substitute high knees, froggers or mountain climbers if you don't have a jump rope. I was planning on also doing a run, but as I am just recovering from being sick yesterday I decided not to push it. Instead, Jesse and I went on a short leisurely walk, about 1.5 miles. 

I hope you all enjoy the workout! See you tomorrow. 
Melissa

  7. Holy sore abs Batman! Lol. I didn't have a jump rope so I alternated between high knees and jumping jacks. I did this workout Monday night and am really feeling it today. Which is a good thing! Thanks for a great workout.

  15. Melissa--
    First of all, I love your videos; I have been trying to do at least one a day! One area I want to focus on is my chest. I have read that if you do lots of exercises with the pectoral muscles and arms, this will give the appearance of fuller, firmer breasts. Would you care to share any tips or secrets that you have found successful?
