April Booty Challenge Day 14


video

There are 2 exercises: 
  • Split squat lunge 
  • In and out jump squat 
The first one involves control and balance (upper body straight), and the second involves power. Do 1 minute each leg for #1, and 1 min for #2. Rest and repeat 3 to 4 times.

April Booty Challenge Day 12


video

There are 3 exercises: 
  • Half leg circles with ankle weights 
  • Wide deep squats 
  • Lunge with a kick 
If you do not have ankle weights, do the first exercise without them. Open your feet really wide and squat really deep in the second exercise. Also do a pelvic tilt squeezing your bum when you come up. For #3, try to keep your upper body straight.

Friday Inspiration: Do Something



Yoga pose: Lunge variation. Peekaboo :)

Inspiration: "If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place." - Nora Roberts

April Booty Challenge Day 10


video

We are incorporating some kickboxing today. So it's a squat, front kick, and round kick. For the round kick, you flex your foot and look in the direction you are kicking (not just throwing your leg back). Kick as high as you can, and squat as low as you can. Do 20 reps, and repeat that for 5 sets.

April Booty Challenge Day 9!


video

Let's really target and kill the glute muscles today. There are 4 exercises in this video: 
  • Deadlift variation 1 (standing)
  • Side hip lift 
  • Wall sit 
  • Deadlift variation 2 (bending knees)
Do each for 1 minute, break for 1 minute, and repeat 4 times. With the side hip lifts, make sure you are twisting your whole body to the side and straightening your leg. You'd be shocked at how much this works your glutes. 

With the deadlifts, looking forward helps to make sure you are using your lower not your upper body.  But don't raise your head and strain your neck. Just use your eyes. Another alternative is to look down to the part of the floor in front of you (not your legs!).

Cheers Eights & Weights!
