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.

Guess who’s back?

Loving husband blessed us with his comedic self for this workout. And boy was he in top form.

In addition to his usual complaining about how hard the workout is he also:

Made a plea with those watching to NOT subscribe to the YouTube channel, cause if there’s no one watching he won’t have to come and film.

Decided to see how far he could push his bad form with each exercise, while I wasn’t looking. Well played LH, I did not notice the shenanigans until I was editing the film.

Stared lovingly past the camera, through the front window, to the bakery across the street. They make his favourite donuts.

Forgot the three things I asked him to remember before started filming.

The end result – a pretty funny, yet still sweaty and awesome, workout.

 

The deets:

Tools needed: A pair of heavy and light dumbbells

Workout best for: home or gym

Level: beginner – advanced

15-Minute Strength Workout

15 Minute Strength Workout

Well, it’s been a long time.

It’s been a long time since I blogged. A long time since I filmed a workout and a long time since I shaved my legs (TMI?).

However, I have a good reason.

I opened a new boutique fitness studio in Ladner.

In addition, I also re-vamped, re-branded and renewed my website.

Whew! December was a CRAZY, and I count my blessings for two things:

  • Loving husband
  • And spiced rum

They both got me through it all.

15-Minute Strength Workout

During the madness I had very little time to workout.

For 6-weeks I simply fit in what I could, and didn’t get down on myself for not doing more.

I told myself that I knew I would get back to it. But, in the meantime I would just fit what I could in and be happy with that.

And guess what? I actually listened to myself and hence this workout

(Wow. This is definitely a sign of growing up.)

Tools needed: A pair of heavy, moderate and light dumbbells.

40-Min Total Body Cardio Weight Loss Workout

40-Min Total Body Cardio Weight Loss Workout

40-Minute Total Body Cardio Weight Loss Workout

Non-stop cardio that you can do at home. A great weight loss workout.

Cardio is always something I have hated to do.

This hasn’t been from lack of trying to love it, though.

Through the years I have competed in 10km runs, half marathons, triathlons and bike races, yet 22 years later I’m still not a fan.

There’s a couple of reasons cardio doesn’t have my heart.

First, I don’t like spending a long time on any one thing. It bores the hell out of me! (With the exception of hiking. I can hike for hours, and maybe that’s because it’s so much fun dragging loving husband up and down mountains.)

I am also adverse to being in large groups of people. I love exercise for it’s solo-ness (Don’t get me going about having participated in the Vancouver Sun Run. The most crowded run on the planet, if not the galaxy, and where you need to train in the art of defense first, then running.).

However,  I do love getting my heart rate up and I love to sweat.

So… through the years I perfected a variety of home cardio workouts that keep my attention, while also improving my fitness – and workouts that don’t leave me with any damn saddle sores (damn you bike seat!).

Toning Cardio Workout for Home

Toning Cardio Workout for Home

Toning Cardio Workout

My 20-Minute Toning Cardio Workout for Home is perfect for on vacation, as well as any time you are travelling and don’t have any access to equipment.

I added a lot of core moves into this one too, so if you are desiring stronger abs this is a great toning cardio workout for you.

The sad news is I am all by myself for this workout. Loving husband was not feeling well so I did not have the heart to drag him along. I must admit, though, I missed him.

20-Minute Toning Cardio Workout

What exactly is a “toning cardio workout”, you might be wondering?

Well, basically it’s a workout where we are going to build some strength as well as build your heart and lungs. I have used a lot of body weight moves that will challenge the muscles enough to stimulate some growth (good news!) and at a pace that will keep the heart rate up.

You’re gonna love it!

20-Minute Toning Cardio Workout

Burn more fat by doing this workout first thing in the morning, before you eat.

By performing cardio in a “fasted” state research is now indicating that we will hit our fat stores faster. You see instead of using the carbs from our food to help motor us through our cardio, we will use our pesky fat stores instead.

I, myself, have been testing this theory and have seen positive results with it. Give it a try with this workout.
