40-Minute Lower Body Workout

40-Minute Lower Body Workout

While editing this workout I realized that in parts of it I sound like an ass. Sorry about that.

Comments like “I love my lower body workouts” sounded effing self-righteous and self-promoting. I make fun of other people who talk like that, so I thought this was only fitting I make fun of myself.

And it’s not actually what I said either.

But, alas my mic kinda sucks.

What I did say was “I love me some lower body workouts”, meaning I love lower body workouts. Period.

They don’t have to be mine.

Actually, in all honesty I prefer Lyndsey’s lower body workouts (she’s an instructor at The Studio), cause she kicks my ass better than I can kick my own.

However, in my defence my mouth was killing me.

You see I had a wisdom tooth that was infected and impacted (meaning it hadn’t pushed through the gum line yet), and not 12 hours after recording this workout I was at the dentist getting that little sucker pulled out.

PJ-Wren-Impacted-Wisdom-ToothThat’s me and my chipmunk face the next day after filming after surgery.

35-Minute Low Impact Lower Body and Core Workout

It is way more fun to workout with a friend. Don’t you agree?

Yeah, most of us tend to workout alone (due to schedules, busy lives etc). But… when we can workout with a buddy it just makes the workout that much better.

We’ve got someone to sweat with, laugh with, commiserate with.

Someone who can take our mind’s off what we are doing.

And, today’s workout I have myself a workout buddy.

My co-pilot for today’s workout is Steve Dotto (www.dottotech.com).

Steve’s a good friend of mine, a member of The Studio, and one of my mentors who helps direct me, and my business, in the right direction.

I had fun filming this workout (more than Steve I think), and I hope you have fun too!

I’m gonna start this blog off with two words… “I’m sorry”.

I’m sorry for the sore tush you are gonna have during, and after, this workout.

I’m sorry for the sweat and discomfort I will cause you. And, I’m sorry for any swear words I may drop during the workout.

However, with that said I am also gonna end this blog with two words… “You’re welcome”.

You’re welcome for giving you a booty that won’t quit.

You’re welcome for giving you the best looking legs and rear end, both in clothes and out of.

And, you’re welcome for the compliments you are bound to receive for said legs and rear end.

All Levels Strength & Abs Workout

All Levels Strength & Abs Workout

All Levels Strength & Abs

This workout is perfect for all levels of fitness and only requires one pair of moderate sized weights – and pretty much everyone has a pair of dumbbells lying around.

TIP: If you don’t have any dumbbells, head to Varage on Facebook, or Craig’s List to pick some up cheap. Or, don’t bother with the fuss of hunting a pair down second-hand and head to your local fitness store. Expect to pay $1.19 – $1.49 a pound.

In my All-Levels Strength & Abs Workout I have set it up so if you don’t have time for my special ab drill you can cut the workout short and skip the abs.

But… if you are cutting out early cause you just don’t feel like doing the abs, know that for every ab crunch not performed an angel loses its wings.

So, don’t be responsible for angel cruelty.

Hehehe.

10 Things I Miss The Most From My Youth

1. My mind.

2. My eyesight.

3. Sleep.

4. School and all it’s holidays, professional days and summer vacation.

5. My allowance.

6. Santa Claus.

7. Inexpensive gasoline.

8. The illusion of invincibility.

9. Gravity (it’s mean to those of us over 45).

10. It takes twice as long now to look half as good.

10 Things I Love About Being Over 45

1. Love. In particular with loving husband.

2. Fearlessness, as opposed to my younger self’s recklessness.

3. I don’t sweat the small stuff.

4. I don’t know it all, as opposed to my younger self who did.

5. My idea of a night out is Netflix and cocktails.

6. No need for feminine hygiene products.

7. I can live without sex, but not without my reading glasses.

8. ?

9. ??

10. ???

10-Minute Lower Body Workout

10-Minute Lower Body Workout

10-Minute Lower Body Workout

So, I filmed this workout… twice.

And not because I love being in the Studio, by myself working out while talking to a camera.

Nope. Instead, it’s because I am an idiot and forgot to turn the mic on the first time.

Menopause has made me stupid.

Otherwise normal tasks are now only accomplished if I A) have a list, and B) I remember to read my list.

I was so worried about my mindset that the other night I went to my computer to Google “Early onset dementia”. Only to forget why I turned on my computer when I got there.

Okay, maybe it’s not that bad.

But, I will admit to losing my car key the other day, only to find it in my hand.

Sigh. What’s a girl to do?

Build a Better Butt Workout

Build a Better Butt Workout

Build a Better Butt Workout

I love training the lower body.

For one, when we train the legs and hips we also get the core and low back engaged.

Second, the largest muscles in the body are in the lower body – so when we train these guys we get the biggest bang for a our calorie-burning fun.

And, finally, loving husband hates anything strenuous. Leaving me with no choice but to kick his butt (literally) with another full glute, hip, core and thigh workout.

By changing the angle of your feet you will place different emphasis on different fibres of the glutes.

  • Bridging, squatting, deadlifts and lunging are the four top choices for building a better butt.
  • When performing walking lunges, take your stride wide to recruit more glutes and hamstrings.
  • There are three muscles that make up your glutes, the gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, and the gluteus minimus.
  • If your knees are bothering you most physios will look at how well your knees are tracking and how strong your outer glute muscle is, your gluteus medius.
  • Your glutes work in pretty much EVERY lower body move. They also help support your body when you stand, help you push off the ground, and give you better balance.
