Butt and legs workout (short BUTT intense)

We had a really beautiful weather in Los Angeles today: Warm and sunny.  Perfect for hiking, therefore I visited my favorite trail in the morning. In addition, I  did a short exercise circuit in the a afternoon. It was short but intense. I worked with 10 pound dumbbells and also used ankle weight for a second round. That really burned my muscles. For sure I will feel it tomorrow. I visited my friend in the evening and ate 5 small cookies wrrrr…They were soo good….. I couldn’t resist. I know I should have had just one or two. Oh well, I will pay for it tomorrow.

Exercise: Warm up and stretch (especially your legs)

1.       One minute jump rope –  to warm up your legs and joints

2.       Chair steps – 15 reps each leg

3.       Standing hip extensions – 25 reps each leg

4.       Pelvic raises on one leg – 15 reps on each leg (if this is too hard, put both feet on the ground)

5.       Floor hip extensions – 25 reps each leg

Repeat this circuit one more time. If you really want to get you butt kicked (like I did ), use ankle weights for standing hip extensions and pelvic raises.

Cool down and stretch your legs
