Quick and Fun: 16 Minute Home Workout

Hi Everyone!

I'm back from my recent bout with a stomach virus and ready to continue the Sculpted Abs Challenge

I incorporated several new moves in this workout, so if you're not sure how to complete the new exercises be sure to watch the video to learn proper form. 

You can repeat this workout up to 3X, and it's a good one to pair with some cardio. I am easing back into working out after being off all week due to my illness so I only went through it once, but I am looking forward to another workout today. 

Don't forget to check in on FacebookInstagram, or Twitter to let me know how you're doing with the challenge! I have been seeing some great check in posts!

Have fun!

Equipment: Gymboss Interval Timer set for 16 rounds of 10/50.

  1. Melissa! I love your variety of workouts thank you so much for posting.
    I have a huge concern! As Ive been doing them, whenever I do lower body routines, I have gradually upped my weight- I now feel I have more been looking more lean but my jeans are skin tight! Do I just do body weight to combat this issue? or will I slim down when I lose more body fat?

    1. That's pretty normal when you first start a new program; however, your concern could be various things. Are you getting in enough cardio throughout the week? You may just be gaining muscle faster than you are losing fat. Try pairing cardio with a few of your workouts to promote weight loss.

  2. Just tried this for the first time. Wow awesome short video. Really impressed and glad I found this . Will definitely revisit this site and do the workouts!
