- 1 minute on each exercise for 3 rounds
- 10 reps of each for 4 rounds
- 40 seconds on 10 second off for 5 rounds with 1 minute rest in-between each round!
- Side Lunges
Side lunges are effective for working your INNER and outer thigh along with your glutes! Start standing with legs slightly wider than shoulder-distance apart and toes pointed forward. Transfer your body weight to one leg, bending your knee until into a 90-degree angle keeping your other leg straight! Sit back into your glutes! Repeat on the other side.
- High Kicks
High Kicks are a brilliant cardio movement that helps strengthen your core!
- Squat Kickbacks
Squats are a great calorie burning full body movement1 The kickback motion is an effective glute isolation exercise!!! Isolating the glutes help activate them properly which equals a perkier behind!
- Glute Bridges
This lower body exercise isolates and strengthens the glutes! Lie die on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the ground! Keeping your arms at your side with your palms facing down. Engage your core and then lift your hips off the ground until your knees, hips and shoulders form a straight line! Hold and then lower down – repeat!
- Donkey Kicks
Donkey Kicks help tone, tighten and strengthen your butt!! Make sure when doing donkey kicks you aren’t swinging your legs or dipping your back, stay as still and stable as you can focusing on your GLUTES doing all the work! Always engage your core!
Things to remember!
- Engage your core
- Execute proper technique – it’s better to do less reps the right way!
- Always check with your health care professional if you have injuries
- Have fun!
