Booty Band Lower Body & Abs Workout

Booty Band Lower Body & Abs Workout

30-Minute Lower Body & Ab Booty Band Workout

When I was young – so, like last month…. haha.

No seriously, when I was in my 20’s no one gave the time of day to their glutes and hips in the gym.

It was all abs, inner thighs and triceps.

Flash forward 20 years later and EVERYONE is obsessed with their ass.

And, for good reasons.

Strong glutes help guard against low back and knee pain, and they are the powerhouse muscle group needed to do simple moves like getting up from a sitting position, to the more complex move of walking, as well as those damn taxing moves like running, hiking and biking.

We need a strong ass people.

And when its strong, the rest of the body can focus on it’s job.

How do you know if your glutes are weak?

A simple test you can perform at home to see if your glutes are weak (and need some extra love) is my bridge test.

  1. Lie on your back with your feet flat on the ground, hip width apart and close to the bum.
  2. Lift your hips off the floor and hold (And I mean lift! Drive the hips up as high as possible).
  3. Extend your left leg straight up and slowly lower it until the heels touches the ground, lift back to start.
  4. Perform 10 reps with your left leg and 10 reps with your right.
  5. If you have no cramping in the the hamstrings that indicats that you are doing a really good job at activating your glutes.
  6. But, if your hamstrings do cramp take note. This is a sign that your hammies are doing most of the work and your glutes are not activating like they should be.

Other than this workout, here are a few of my other go-to glute moves:

Squats

Lunges (especially walking lunges)

Deadlifts

Bridges

Step ups

Sometimes I wonder where my head is.

I totally thought (when I started filming this workout) that it would be 16 minutes long.

That was what I wanted, that was what I had programmed beforehand, and that was what I believed it was through the entire workout.

In fact I believed until the bitter end, and then I got to editing the video.

And so you can imagine my amazement when I realized that I was editing a 24 minute workout.

Almost ten more minutes that what I thought??!

Thus proving, once again, that trainers can’t keep count, and more personally, that my math skills are about the level of a two-year old.

Upper Body Circuit

Upper Body Circuit

30-Minute Upper Body Circuit Workout

Not much more to say about this workout, except what is already said.

It’s an upper body workout, and it’s performed as a circuit.

Kapeesh?

Now, let’s talk about something good. Something that’s not obvious by the title of this blog.

OK?

Like, for instance how the internet keeps telling me I’m old.

I’m sure you know that “they” (aka Facebook, Google, the Kardashians) are all keeping an eye on us on the web.

Whatever we search for goes into their large data bases so that they can then target specific ads to us.

For example, if you have ever searched for a hair product, BOOM, every time you click on a web page all of a sudden every side bar is filled with ads for Redken products, or Sephora, or even haircuts themselves.

That’s happening to me right now.

I searched “haircuts for women over 40” once, and I am now slammed with every “woman over the age of 40 and 50” ad there is.

Case in point the below screen shot from my morning internet read.

While I am sure that “Make Up Tips for Older Women” is an important piece of journalism, I don’t need it.

And, nor do I need the internet to tell me to start acting my age either.

Eff you internet.

TOOLS NEEDED:

A pair of moderate and light dumbbells

We had a bash at our place last weekend.

It was The Studio’s first birthday, and we invited all of our member’s to a party at our home.

And boy did they party!

In addition to a lot of wine of being drunk, we also had a fun awards ceremony handing out awards from the “Most Vocal in a Workout”, to the “Best in Sweat”, and all the way to more “serious” and celebrated award, “Most Improved”.

Hosting the party, having such a great turnout, and then watching everyone interact on the night of made my heart swell.

I realized that evening that I have achieved one of my goals in life – to create an awesome place for people to workout… no matter what their fitness level is.

A comfortable and fun place to sweat.

It’s super cool when a plan comes together πŸ™‚
