Lower Body Blast

Few things I love more than a good butt and leg workout to start the weekend! Your legs have some major muscle groups, which means the after burn last longer. Also, your glutes are crazy strong and can take a beating multiple days in a row, unlike other, more delicate muscles like your shoulders. Take advantage and work that booty multiple times per week. The below workout can be completed at home with minimal equipment, or in a gym. Let me know if you have any questions about the moves or need a modification! Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Booty Call

Last week I subbed my favorite workout class- Booty Call at Inline. It was so fun! So guess what? I subbed again this week! Basically it is a strength class, so we’re using weights, kettlebells, bands, and whatever else we feel like, but were focusing on the legs and butt. It is so fun and also something I hold near and dear to my heart. It might sound silly, but after years in the gym I realized that squats weren’t building a butt, they were making my quads grow, quickly. Through the wonderful Bret Contreras I was opened to the world of glute building! I learned that A) your leg muscles are big and therefore create a great after burn 2) your glutes are strong so they can be worked, hard, multiple days a week 3) working your glutes tends to lend itself to activating your core, and arms, which leads to more tone all over! While I am not in a gym anymore, I still appreciate and focus on the importance of working the glutes. Sharing a fun butt workout here that I did last week. It can be done at home. I recommend having a band, set of dumbbells, and a kettlebell, but you could also go through all of the motions with body weight.

Quick Booty Burn

Happy 2019 Friends!! I am so excited for this year. I have so much exciting stuff to share with you guys, and I promise my regular blog feed will be getting more love soon, but for right now, lets talk fitness. If you’re like 99% of the world you have some health related goal for 2019 and I sure hope it includes moving more!

Fitness is about movement, living actively, moving in a way that is sustainable and promotes longevity and health. If you are not moving your body intentionally, most days of the week, you’ve got work to do. For a lot of us, time gets in the way, which is why its important to me to share workouts that can be done anywhere and with little to no equipment. When you don’t need to get into a gym, a lot of barriers fall away.

I am all about the booty moves. Seriously, if you want a nice booty, you gotta work it! And truthfully, strength and stability start in the legs so whatever your movement of choice, booty work can always help! I am sharing some of my fav moves in a quick workout today to get your booty burning.


If you have confusion about an exercise or questions about making a move less or more challenging, please comment or contact me - my goal is to share workouts that everyone can do and I am happy to provide those modifications on request. Additionally, remember you can google any of the moves to find a demo!

Full body booty (35 min)

Full body workout with booty focus. This will take about 35 minutes. While a timer works great, I LOVE the GymBoss app because it beeps when my time is done so I don't need to keep checking the time. Highly recommend!!
