Sorry not sorry, but first of all, Summer is like literally a few months away, and second of all, I think a vacation is coming my way, and those two things mean only one thing…bikinis!
Plus, not only am I working on my glutes, but my entire lower body. The legs are a hugeeeee muscle group and require a lot of attention. Plus, the more you work your legs, the more calories you burn, which only means one thing. More. Food.
Talking about burning calories, this was the kind of workout that targets so good, it was totally making my butt super shaky. Muscles worked so good, you can feel them tightening.
I have to thank myself for the 100 glute raises as the finisher. Which by the way ended up being such a perfect way to end this workout. During the kettlebell sumo squats leg lifts after about 33 reps I began thinking I’d already like to stop!!….Ahhh who am I kidding, just keep going.
No one ever gets to the finish line by quitting.
I kept going, and thank goodness I did because at the end of workout (ok, at the end of every single workout) I feel incredible! After feeling so accomplished, I came to realize I had actually done a few extra reps. 😉 I had this workout written on a piece of paper and I swear, when I glanced over I saw 50 weighted donkey kicks, so that’s what I did. 50 per leg. Only to realize after the workout that I had only planned on performing 25 per leg….? Oops…? I guess…?
+ Dumbbell (I used 8lbs)
+ Kettlebell (I used 8kg & 4kg)
+ Exercise Mat
|| the workout ||
Complete the following exercises and reps without any rest. Alternating sides when applicable.
Naturally I would suggest to circuit through the workout two or three times, but this specific workout calls for higher reps, so there’s no need to go through different rounds. 🙂
50 KETTLEBELL SUMO SQUATS & LEG LIFT (alternating leg lifts after every squat)
25 WEIGHTED DONKEY KICKS (complete 25 on right, then 25 on left side)
50 KETTLEBELL SIDE LUNGES (alternating sides after each lunge)
100 KETTLEBELL HIP BRIDGES
