Hiiiiiii! How was your weekend? I am feeling a bit overwhelmed as of yesterday. Remember when I mentioned that Miguel and I were going to move? Well that date has finally approached and I’m not quite ready for it. Not that I don’t want to move, but…well…packing is haunting me. I didn’t think it was going to take that long, but I’m trying this new thing where I actually organize my stuff rather than just throwing it on random boxes. Talk about time consuming! I know it will be worth it in the end, though. So I figured, what better way to de-stress than with a good workout?
Today I’m bringing you the Better Booty Workout, because we all want a better booty. I mean, I guess I can’t speak for everyone but, most everyone wants a better booty if possible. …and it IS possible if you do the right exercises 😉 I’d recommend pairing this workout with some type of cardio for a complete workout.
Squats: Start in a standing position and squat down, pushing your butt back as if you are trying to sit in a chair.
Step-Ups: (Please ignore my ghetto crate): Using a bench or chair (or a ghetto crate), step up with one leg and thrust your opposite knee up in the air; use your abs to balance!
Lunge Front Kicks: Start with both feet together. Take your right leg and lunge backwards and then bring it in front of you like a “kick” motion and then return back to the reverse lunge position. Repeat with your left leg.
Fire Hydrants: Start on your hands and knees. Bend your right leg and, using your hip, lift your leg out to the side. Repeat with left leg.
Donkey Kicks: Start on your hands and knees. Bend your right leg and, rather than lifting your leg up using your hip (like with the fire hydrants), lift your leg up using your butt muscle. Your foot should be shooting straight up into the air.
Bridges: Start lying down on your back, legs bend with both feet on the ground. Slowly bring your butt of the ground, squeezing your glutes, and then slowly lower back down.
Side Lunge Knee Tuck: Start in a standing position and, with your right foot, lunge to the side. Then, slowly and controlled, bring your left knee up to your chest and then place it down beside your right leg. Repeat with left leg.
Plank: With your forearms on the ground and your legs straight, hold your abs in tight for 60 seconds, or a little more/less depending on what is challenging for you.
Q: Do you pack ahead of time or do you procrastinate?
