In the spirit of Christmas and giving, I share with you this Christm-ASS workout (I couldn’t help myself.. Punning is genetic, you know). Alternative workout titles if you’d prefer: Holiday Hiney, Holiday Ham… You get the gist.
What you’ll need:
You can definitely do this workout without any weights at all! You can repeat this workout 2-3x if you’re feeling crazy.
weighted donkey kick
frog leg lifts
<– 3rd exercise down
single leg bridges <– do them on your heel to really target the butt
Single leg deadlift into a single leg squat
Perform a single leg deadlift (use 2 weights).
Then, transition into a single-leg squat on the same standing leg as the deadlift; the leg that was lifted during the deadlift will come down next to the standing leg.. Just touch your toe of that leg to the ground with NO weight through it. Frame both dumbbells around the leg you’re squatting with (all weight through the heel of your foot).
curtsy lunge with hip abduction
Perform a curtsy lunge (all your weight in the heel of the front leg)
side step squats
Place band around ankles, squat down low and take 20 side steps (make sure you keep tension on the band) to right and then back to the left.
I paired this routine with 30min of cardio while reading my book (and then I left the book at the gym, wha!).
Let me me know if you try it!
