5 Moves: Equipment Free Glute Workout
I just got back in town from a week and a half vacation for the holidays. I spent a week with my family in Atlanta and four days in Aspen with some incredible friends. Our time was spent skiing, snuggling, shopping, spa-ing (new word) and eating some delicious food. That being said, I made it to the gym ONCE. And I’m fine with it for two reasons: 1. I like to spend holidays relaxing and not stressing about making it to the gym when I could be going for a hike with my family, running around with my nephew or skiing with friends. 2. I know I’m able to get in a workout wherever I am with no equipment, so there’s no need for me to rush to the gym. It just takes a little creativity and 20-30 minutes.
I love these five moves because they focus on lower body (see my post about activating the glutes before working them) but also work on balance, stability and core strength.
Here's the workout:
Warmup (dynamic stretching + Glute Activation + 10 minute jog)
Glute Bridge: x20
Single Leg RDL: x12 each side
Back Lunge: x20 each side
Sumo Squat: x25
Single Leg Glute Bridge with Up Down: x10 of each on each side
Repeat the circuit 3x.
