How’s those fitness goals going? Don’t give up yet! I know it’s hard to find the time to workout but today I’m sharing a really quick workout I’ve been doing over the holidays. While there are two moves I wouldn’t say you could do “anywhere” they’re definitely things you can do around the house while you wait on dinner to cook, or the laundry. The next time you find yourself thinking, "I don't have time to go to the gym," I want you to reference this workout by NASM-certified trainer Kelsey Wells. It's a low-impact, bodyweight workout that doesn't take long to do, which means you have no excuse for not training.
DISCLAIMER I’m well aware that my butt is flat so I don;t need that pointed out. In fact, a male co-worker pointed it out last Monday and that had me really self-conscious. I’m definitely going to have to do more of these exercises to get the booty of my dreams.
These exercises will activate your glute muscles, help you prevent injury, and you'll get that extra "burn" in your muscles by doing them. We hope you're ready for your glutes to be on fire!
The Low-Impact Bodyweight Workout
Kelsey said you can add these exercises into your routine as part of your warmup before a lower-body strength session or as a burnout phase. You can also put these moves together for a quick booty workout. In her caption, Kelsey said to complete four sets of 12 reps for each exercise.
Double pulse sumo squat: 12 reps
Standing glute kickback: 12 reps
Single-leg hip lift: 12 reps (each leg)
Fire hydrant: 12 reps (each leg)
