Wednesday Workout: Tone Your Tush! {without equipment!}

I’m really enjoying reading through your entries and comments on my giveaway post. I love hearing things you’d like to see more of on my blog, and one of the things that seemed to be a common request was more at home, no equipment necessary workouts. I couldn’t agree more! While I like posting the workouts I teach, I understand that many of you reading the blog are probably looking for shorter, equipment free workouts you can squeeze in before or after work. So, my goal is to start posting more workouts like this for you- starting today! This workout focuses on your legs and glutes, but I did throw in some optional core work in there, because let’s be honest, we can always use a little extra core work, right? The time intervals go as follows:

  • 60 seconds- strength. If you want to use weights, feel free, but the workout is meant to be a body weight workout, so explore your range of motion, speed of the exercises, etc. Try to get deeper with your squats or lunges, try to squeeze harder as you lift, try to stay lower in your pulses. Take it up a notch in this workout!
  • 40 seconds- cardio. The cardio moves I chose compliment the strength moves- gotta love the double burn!
  • 20 seconds- pulsing. If you didn’t feel the burn yet, you’ll feel it in this piece!

You have the option to do each set once through, twice through or three times through. You can do all 2 or 3 rounds of each set before moving on to the next, OR you can do each set once through and then repeat all of the sets again in a circuit format.ย Lots of options!

Tone Your Tush

All of these moves are pretty basic, but if you have questions, just shoot me a message and I’d be glad to explain!

Questions for you: Do you like working your upper or lower body more? Is this the type of workout you’re looking to see on the blog? Do you like body weight workouts?

    This is great for your folks who do not have a chance to get to a gym or other workout situation. You are covering all aspects of the exercises. After 2 months of recovering from a sprained ankle I am happy to be back walking with Mom and Jeanne!! Have a good day. Hope you are feeling better.

      Thanks, Kim! I’m really looking forward to trying it because I think you’re right… the combination of the 3 moves for various times all targeting the same muscle groups will totally give you that “burn”.

    Hi Nick, What a great workout! This is perfect for when I can’t ski/snowshoe/walk outside because of the weather–I’m going to print it and try it tomorrow! Mom

      Sounds good, mom! I thought you might like it- and obviously you know how to modify to exclude the jumps, which is great. I’m planning on posting a workout video next week that I think you’ll love.
