Booty Band Cardio Workout

Booty Band Cardio Workout

It was National Puppy Day last week, and I found myself on Instagram off and on all day checking out people’s pups.

It’s not a secret that I like dogs more than most people. Some people are a lot of work, whereas all dogs are not.

How do you know if you like dogs more than humans too?

  1. Do you hate it when other people walk slowly in front of you, but you’ll let your dog stop and sniff any random piece of earth that they want?
  2. You’d cuddle your dog any day, but you step back involuntary when people enter in your personal space.
  3. When you meet a baby, do you smile and say “aww”, but when you meet a puppy you squeal, pet it and spew out unintelligible words of affection?
  4. If a new acquaintance, or first date, doesn’t like dogs you become highly suspicious of them.
  5. You are losing Instagram followers because all your posts are pics of your dog sleeping.
  6. You need a calendar reminder of your friend’s and family’s birthdays, but you have no problem remembering your pooch’s.

TOOLS NEEDED

A booty band (BUT… you can totally do this workout with no band too. Promise.)

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
