Trainer Tuesday: Booty Burnin’ Lower Body Workout

Hey guys, I sure hope you’re reading for some Trainer Tuesday action!  As I’ve recently mentioned, I’ve switched my workout plan up so that I do lower body weights one day, upper body weights another day, and a full body weights workout a third day.  Before I was doing three days of full body workouts, and I started to feel like my body needed a little bit of a change up to challenge myself more.  So far I’m loving the change and find myself feeling sore after almost every workout the last couple weeks!

Today I wanted to share with you a lower body workout that I came up with last week which I LOVE!  It had my booty burnin’ and my quads screaming at me the entire time, and well into the next day or two.  If you are more advanced, feel free to use heavier dumbbells than what I listed.  If you’re just starting out or consider yourself to be a beginner fitness level, I would suggest using no weight or lighter dumbbells.

Questions:

  • Do you split up your workouts into lower body/upper body days?  If not, how do you plan your strength training days?
  • Do you enjoy lifting upper body or lower body more?

    I do the same thing with workouts, a lower body day, an upper body day, and a full body day. Although since I’ve been home I’ve been doing Jazzercise with my mom, which combines high rep weights with aerobics! and great music!

    I need you to come be my trainer! ;) I’m not very good about a consistent weight-training program. I do lift, and I usually split it biceps/back one day and shoulders/chest/triceps on another day, and legs on one of those days. But there are other weeks when I hardly do any weight-lifting at all. :/

      i would love to!! i wish we lived closer! just like with anything else (i.e. running) i feel like strength training is something you have to just get yourself into a routine with. after i started pushing myself to do it a few times a week, i found that i really enjoy it. it’s really awesome especially when you start seeing the results!

      hmmm you could do side leg raises. they get the outside of your hips and glutes pretty well too. the resistence bands are pretty cheap though – you can find them at Wal Mart!

    I love this workout plan! I’ve always been a “full body weights” person as well, but I agree, changes are always beneficial. Thanks for sharing this, will definitely be referring back to it in the future! ;-)
