In today’s society we seem to cram as much into our days as possible before we schedule in our workouts or RnR activities. However, you should make your health a priority!! You need to start scheduling in workouts AND RnR activities before any other commitments. But working out doesn’t mean that you need to have access to a gym. Using your body weight or buying a few simple pieces of training equipment will take you far.
So, if you don't have access to a gym, but still want to tone your legs and butt. Try this legs and butt shaping workout!!! You will find more at-home workouts in my program Body By Nina. Obviously you can do these at a gym as well… ;)
Legs & butt shaping workout
5 rounds and 12 reps of each exercise
- Stationary lunges (per leg)
- Hip thrusts
- Kickbacks (per leg)
- High knees (per leg)
Squats - Stand with your feet hip-width apart. Keep your core engaged. Squat down into a sitting position with your knees in line with your toes (as if you were going to sit down on a chair behind you) only go as far your motion allows keeping your weight on your heels. Then press up through your heels to the standing position and squeeze your glutes at the top.
Stationary lunges - Start with your feet hip-width apart. Take a step forward and bend your knees. Ensure your knee stays in line with your toe and toes pointing forward. Then pushing hard through the heel push yourself back to the starting position. Complete all reps on one leg before repeating on the other side.
Hip thrusts – Lie on the floor and bend your knees, placing your feet quite close to your buttocks. Press through your heels to bring your hip up towards the ceiling. Slowly bring your body back down to the floor and then repeat.
Kickbacks - Start kneeling on the floor and place your hand on the floor in a bridge position. Keeping your tummy tight and engaged take one leg and push your heel towards the ceiling. Bring that same knee back towards your chest in a swinging motion then repeat and push your heel back up to the ceiling and squeeze your glute at the top.
High knees – Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Jog on the spot trying to bring the knees as high up towards your chest as possible.
Now, ready, set, GO… You Got This!!
