Glutes On Fire: I Discovered Cassey Ho’s “Blogilates” Today!

Hey Y’all!

Just a quick chek-in! I haven’t been posting as much this week because I’ve been trying to get my life together! I missed the gym yesterday and I would’ve missed it today but I didn’t want to lose my progress. Today I found great booty workouts with Cassey on Blogilates. When I say these workouts were good, I mean they were REALLY GOOD. My booty was burning within the first minute. I added them with some pulsing sumo squats (30 x 5) and walking lunges 10 x 10. I don’t know about you guys but I really loathe working out at home. I normally start out great but then I’m distracted by either a notification on my phone or the TV. Cassey is super cute and her chatter really helped me forget about the pain and my at home distractions. Check it out below.

Isn’t she the cutest little thing? I really like her personality! Let me know if you try these!

Summer Readiness Training: I Modified My JUNKFIT Judy Routine [Booty Workout]

So ya’ll remember Big Booty Judy from ATL, right? Ok, so that’s where I got the name JUNKFIT Judy from. Silly, I know but I am desperately trying to get my booty together before my 30th birthday. I know I’m not the only one who wants a little more defined ass and thigh for summer 2015. Today I took the advice of a coworker and modified a few things in my leg and booty exercises.

+++

1. I began adding 10lbs to my back extension. I never wanted to add weight to this exercise because I didn’t want to bulk up my back. It wasn’t until I realized that while weight might add more resistance to my back, it would also add resistance to my booty and hamstrings, thus building those muscles up as well. To do this, you have to be mindful of where you pull from. Remember, you should always pull with your glutes and hamstrings on the back extension machine. (3 x 20)
2. I modified my tired ass walking lunges. I think I may have lunged to the moon and back by now and as silly as it sounds, I was sitting there wondering why it’s been so hard to see gains in my legs. I’ve been doing what I’m comfortable with and not stepping outside of my zone. Today I added scissor lunges to my routine. I was shocked at how on point my balance was. (3 x 20)
3. I adjusted my tempo on the leg extension. I was originally extending and holding for just a 1 count but I’ve found that I get a better burn if I hold the extension for 2. (3 x 10)

How do you guys modify your exercises to keep your bodies challenged or to keep seeing results? Let’s share our journeys.
