It’s Wednesday and it’s Hump day so I’m bringing you another workout focused on building those lovely glutes.
While building strong, perky glutes to fill out your jeans is pretty cool, I consider that just an added bonus. The truth of the matter is that strong glutes are essential for preventing back and knee pain and for aiding in athletic performance such as squatting, deadlifting, running, and jumping.
I don’t know about you but I spend a good chunk of my day sitting. And guess what happens to our poor glutes? They stop firing properly from lack of use. Long term that can lead to higher potential for injuries. Therefore, it’s essential to get your glutes firing on all cylinders on a regular basis.
Ok, I’ll admit it, the added bonus of juicy apple bottom is pretty cool too LOL.
Here’s a great leg day workout with a glute focus to work on strengthening and shaping those curves:
If you are feeling super high energy and ambitious, you finish with a little cardio by completing Sumo KB Deadlift Jumps. You complete 10 reps EMOM (Every minute on the minute) for 10 minutes. So you complete 10 reps and then rest for the remainder of the 60 seconds, then start again.
It’s a scorcher.
I train legs often and usually pretty heavy and I was pretty sore after this one. But I know my glutes will thank me for it.
Let me know how it goes!
Happy Training 🙂
