Good thing it’s time for some Trainer Tuesday because I noticed the fitness talk has been a little bleak around here lately. I suppose it makes sense since my own fitness life has been somewhat uneventful other than some wonderful walks with Cody and our pups, and a few yoga videos here and there. Don’t think that means I’m going to skimp out on continuing to provide you all with some kick butt workouts though!
Pyramids are one of my favorite workout formats. They challenge my body, keep things interesting, and are FUN! The idea of a pyramid workout is exactly that – it follows a pyramid structure. You start an exercise with a lower number of repetitions, work your way up to the top with higher repetitions as you go, and then work your way back down. Pretty simple, right? Right.
Today I wanted to give you a pyramid workout that focuses on your lower body. Expect your booty and legs to be burnin’ by the end!
Note: As always, check with your doctor before starting a new workout program. Do at least a 5-10 minute warm up before beginning your workout. On single leg exercises, do the number of reps listed on EACH leg.
Try this out and let me know how it goes! It’s a doozy for sure so be ready to sweat! You want those legs lookin’ good for summa-time!
Encouragement for the Day:
Below is one of my favorite mantras. Persistence and determination are KEY when working toward any goal. You can do it! Don’t give up!
