It’s Hump Day! Happy Wednesday, friends.
The weather has mostly cooperated so far this week, with the exception of a few rain showers yesterday. Just a few more days till the weekend. Last weekend I spent boatloads of time outside. It was such a nice change of pace from the super chilly weather we had been dealing with. Here’s hoping the weather is nice so we can all enjoy our time outdoors.
This week’s Workout Wednesday is all about that booty! I love workouts that focus on the lower body, they’re always a challenge, a great workout, and make me feel super strong. Plus, who wouldn’t want their caboose to be in tip top shape.
I especially love non-traditional exercises like curtsy lunges and glute kickbacks. I always start out thinking that they’re way too easy and that it won’t be enough of a workout for me. But by the end, my muscle are screaming! If I’m feeling extra jazzy I’ll sometimes add a high knee at the end of the curtsy lunge movement.
I’ve been traveling more often now and always have my eyes peeled for workouts that can be done without weights or equipment. This is one of those workouts! While you can add the use of free weights if you like, this circuit is still a challenge only using your body weight. I like to combine it with the 5 Minute Power Plank workout for a real challenge.
