21 Minute Full Body Workout: Total Body Sculpting

Hi Everyone!

I have a great workout for you today! This is a full body workout that incorporates weights and body weight exercises. It will help you burn fat, build lean muscle, and shape your entire body. 

In today's workout I used a 75 lb barbell. If you don't have a barbell, you can use dumbbells, or complete the exercises with body weight. If you don't have weights, but you want to increase the challenge you can find something around your house (water jugs, canned food, etc). If you get creative with your weights, tag me in your photos on Instagram or Facebook. It helps others come up with new ideas!

Today's Fitness Fashion is a sneak peek from Affitnity's newest line. One of the perks of being an Ambassador is getting the latest fashion before it's even released for sale! The other perk is that BenderFitness fans always get 15% off of their total purchase with the code: BenderFitness at check out. There are several other brand new styles that I can't wait to wear this week! It might sound silly, but new workout clothes motivate me to work out.

  1. I really love your workouts!
    Looks really a challenge, but I want to try it.
    And, I wish you a happy birthday, Melissa!

  2. Improvised with a 40lb bag of dog food :). This was a great work out! Thanks Melissa and Jesse for helping so many people lead healthier lives. I have passed your site on to many other.

  3. Hi Melissa! Looks very impressive. I'd like to know is it suit for men too or just for women.
    I got interested of Pushup to Side Plank: Part 3.

  4. GREAT WORKOUT!!! Thanks so much for mixing it up. The workout was a challenge and I loved pushing myself. Wonderful job as always. God Bless

  5. That was an amazing workout! Thank you so much for sharing your passion for fitness with us - you continue to inspire and motivate me. My heartfelt appreciation to you and your hubby.

  6. Holy shizz! This is my favorite one so far Bender! 👏👏👏

  7. I'm trying this one tonight Melissa! This looks amazing! So perfect for a girl who lifts very heavy 90% of the time! I need to throw in more HIIT to keep my fat burning and this incorporates the best of both worlds. Thank you!! I would love to see you do more routines like this. I love the body weight stuff, but sometimes I just want to get all my lifting and sweating in at once ;)

  8. Totally loved this one Melissa! Working on a bigger booty so this will do the trick. I only had time to go through once but I went for a 2 mile run first. Next time I'm doing 2 rounds. Thank you.
