Good Morning Everyone!
Yesterday we worked out Core with the Extended Plank Workout. Today we are focused on the lower half of our body with the Better Booty Workout.
Grab some dumbbells (or a barbell if you prefer!) and get ready to work up a sweat. Even though there aren’t any plyometric moves in this workout it had me sweating and breathing hard when I filmed it!
Focus on form, and move as quickly as you can between each exercise. If you need a break listen to your body & select the number of reps that is right for you. By the end of the exercise it should be difficult to get in those last few reps. If it’s still easy it’s either time to increase the amount of weight you are using, or increase your number of Reps and/or Rounds.
Remember, it’s the challenge that changes you and makes you stronger!
Have fun with today’s workout!
