Can’t tell you how good it feels to be done with travelling around for a while, and settle down back into routine! When you’re a gym keen bean I swear routine is your best friend, anything out of it just feels plain weeeeiiiiirddd.
Anyway so I’m so happy that I’m finally stuck in one place for a while so I can keep up with my blog posts, and get some new workouts, recipes and other bits and bobs up on here. It’s definitely good to have something to focus on whilst I’m so far from home (loser I know, I’m a home girl ok I miss my family 😭) so nikesandnutella is going to finally become consistent again! Yayyy
So what better way to kick things off again than with a quick post of a booty workout I did the other day that you can steal to help build those huge bunssss we all want. Summer is just around the corner so shred time for a lot of you but for me I’m trying to focus on improving for next season so it’s all about the peach from here on in! 🍑💪🏽
So here’s what I did ➡️ Changed it up from normal so features a little plyometric work! I love doing different things, and I definitely felt the burn with this workout 💃🏽 Got to remember it’s not all about the heavy heavy weights, some days burn out with lower weight and higher reps!
Booty Workout 1 (more coming 😏)
- Warm up with resistance band work to activate glutes (get that mind-muscle connection started!) I’ll do a post on that soon..
Kettle Bell Lunges ➕ Side Step Ups. (Shown in video below) ➡️. 3 x 12 EL
(for the step ups I did one normal side step up, to one step up leg abduction – shown in the vid sorry it’s a rubbish angle, hope you get the gist! 10 of each type per leg – So 20 EL altogether)
Rear Cable Kickbacks ➕ Cable Side Kicks (my standard faves) ➡️ 3 x 12-15 EL
Make sure you’re really squeezing when you contract especially at the top of your extension/kickback – the burn is crazy! Do a lighter weight and practice your control so you can really squeeze and keep your planted leg stable, then up the weight when comfortable.
- Hip Thrusts ➡️ 3 x 10-12 (heavy weight)
- Lying Hamstring Curls ➡️ 4 x 10-12
Short (ish, not really) but sweet! Well not sweet, painful actually but worth it 🍑 Booty Blast Number 2 will be up shortly ❤️
