Got 20 minutes????

So if you read my post this past Monday, you know I have dedicated working towards being consistent with my training and nutrition for the next 4 months.

Everything started out GREAT this week.

Training was great.

Nutrition was great.

Recovery was great.

And then, Thursday happened.

We had a busy day with coaching, appointments and then taking P swimming.

I had decided that I was going to train yesterday around 630pm, after BJ had his consultation and take over the coaching at the gym.

But you know as well as I do, things don’t always go as planned.

So instead of training at 630pm, I had to scramble to get something in.

I could have taken the day off from training, but I took Wednesday off and I didn’t want to take 2 days off in a row.

Since I only had a small window to get my training in, I decided to do a quick 20 min combo workout.

It consisted of ….

  • Squats + Reverse Lunges
  • Bicep curls + DB Shoulder Press
  • DB Romanian DL + DB Upright Row
  • Bicycles + V-up Crunches

****I did 30 seconds on/30 seconds off for each combination going in a circuit fashion. I went through the circuit 5 times.****

I have done this workout in the past, and I really love it since it hits the entire body and I’m still working out in that 70% intensity area I want to be in.

Here is the workout I did. I videoed just snippets of each combo so you can see how I went from one movement to another.

I hope you try this and enjoy it as much as I did.

As I said above, it’s a great workout for those times where you don’t have much time to get your training in.

By the way…

How are you doing with YOUR 70/80/90 Rule???

 

It’s Booty Season ALL Year

Kori booty

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have a saying…

“There is bikini season during the spring and summer.

There is sweater season during the fall and winter.

But BOOTY season is ALL year round!”

OK, so it’s corny, but I love the exercises that work the butt and I do them often.

While pregnant with my daughter, I actually lost my butt and finally after having her and 3 years later, I got it back!

Here is part of the circuit I did for my training yesterday.

In between exercises, I pushed the dog sled down the length of the turf and then used a TRX to squat and pull the dog sled back to starting position. On the sled, I have a total of 35#. That is on top of what the dog sled weighs. And let me tell you….THIS is hard! And it really hits the glute and hamstrings!

If you don’t have access to a dog sled or a prowler, no worries! Find anything that will slide on the ground, and is heavy enough to make you sweat, and push!

I’ve done this with my daughter as well.

She has a “sit n spin” toy. I put her on it and pushed her all over the back yard.

That was tough too!

But we both had fun and I got a great workout.

One of My Favorite Booty Shapers!!

About to wrap up week 1 of my new program I am doing.

Feeling great and loving the exercises!! (Next week I will post a 2 week progress pic!)

Here is one of the exercises in my new program and it has quickly become one of my favorites and most certainly making sure it’s in the TLAG program!!

They are called Barbell Box Step ups and man do they build that booty!

These are great for shaping and lifting the butt, which is great for as we get older…things do start to sag 🙁

I use a barbell, but you can use many different tools such as dumbbells, Kettlebells, a weighted vest, a medicine ball or even just step up using your body weight. The key is to not use momentum while stepping up, let the leg that is stepping do all the work.

Happy stepping!!!
