I am re-sharing an older workout tonight. Unfortunately I was rear-ended this morning on my way to work and I suffered a neck strain. My doctor has temporarily restricted me from working out. I am not happy about the restriction, but I am going to let my body heal so I can get back to it 100%.
I am recruiting Jesse for some workouts, so you can still look forward to some new routines. It's been a while since he's been on camera!
I will also be working on getting things ready for my September DietBet Weight Loss Challenge. I will be sharing a sample meal plan, some recipes, and finalizing the workout program I will be sharing for the challenge. Be sure to check back! You can get more information here, or join the challenge directly at www.dietbet.com/BenderFitness. The pot is currently over $2500 dollars, and the winners split the pot and have a chance to win some other great prizes.
The workout below has two parts. I started off with a 6 minute Jump Rope cardio workout/warm-up. If you want to maximize your benefits during a workout you should always warm up.
Jumping Rope is also a great stand-alone workout. Check out: Health Benefits of Jumping Rope. You can always add jump roping before or after any workout. I don't talk about it enough, but you should always warm-up and cool-down to optimize the benefits of your workout. You will be able to complete the workout at a higher intensity, and increase the benefits of your metabolic system if you are warmed up. Stretching should be completed post-workout.
