Good Morning Everyone!
Are you ready for today’s workout? I hope you said “Yes!”
Today’s workout is all about the lower body, and shaping/strengthening the muscles of your backside. This routine will work the gluteus muscles (your butt) from every angle. This will help create strength, balance, and shape through all of the muscles. Balanced glute muscles help maintain proper core and back alignment, and give strength/postural control to all of the exercises you do. A strong core, back, and glutes, are the foundation of your movements.
I did today’s workout for Reps and it took me just over 20-Minutes per round. I can still do all of the exercises in this workout at 30-Weeks pregnant, except the Prone Leg Lift. This exercise can be easily modified to be performed quadruped (on hands and knees, with core supported as you breath).
I tried my first Spinning Class last night. It was a Power Spin, which incorporated dumbbells and I really enjoyed it! It was fun to mix it up with a whole new type of challenge! The class was fun, with a live DJ who spins based on RPMs of the music so that your peddling is driven by the beat of the music.
It was also easy to work at my own pace. I’m 30-weeks pregnant, so the ability to monitor my intensity level is important right now. I was able to get in over 15-miles of cycling work. Deena is a cycling Rock Star and makes it look easy!
I hope you enjoy today’s workout!
