Happy noontime! I’m coming at you with my awesome leg and ab workout I completed last night. You can “pin it” if you have Pinterest. I do! I do! As you can see, I kept the weight light and really focused on my form and made sure to power through each circuit without rest. It was tough! Let me know if you try it.
Sweaty Lower-Body Workout
Warm-Up (Based on Naomi’s Warm-up Routine)
- 5-10 minute jog on treadmill
- Half Kneeling Adductor Stretch- 10 each leg
- Half Kneeling Hip Flexor Stretch- 10 each leg
- Half Kneeling Hamstring Stretch- 30 sec. hold each leg
- Glute Bridge- 12 reps. x2
For each circuit, alternate between each exercise without rest to complete a total of 3 sets for each exercise. After a 30-60 seconds rest, move on to the next circuit. By the end you’ll be dripping with sweat and feeling accomplished!
I know I’ve mentioned Naomi of One Fit Foodie several times on the blog. She is an ACSM personal trainer and fitness competitor who has a killer body and outlook on fitness. She posts great workouts and topics that emphasize functional fitness and tapping into our body’s potential. I encourage you to check her out! Today she wrote a great post on Building Your Glutes. I know I’ll be trying some of those exercises very soon!

I happened to submit one of my favorite glute exercises… the Donkey Kick-Out. Without the kick-out they are also known as the Dirty Dog. I find these animal names somewhat awkward. To see said awkwardness, watch the video below!
