I know that when most people think of working out their butt and thighs, they go straight to the squats. And there’s no doubt that squats are a great exercise for building a better, stronger booty. However, as a fun little challenge to myself, I tried to think up as many other exercises as I could that would work the backside. And then, just for fun, I thought I’d see if I could stay on the floor, too. You know how much I love me a floor workout!
This workout is basically a two-in-one: there are really just four moves, but the second time through the circuit, we do the (much) harder modification. Yay, fun times!
I’ll tell you a little secret. I was so pleased watching this workout during the editing, because while I was actually doing the exercises, I didn’t feel like my hips were getting very far off the ground! The Reverse Plank Crunches in particular, were SO hard! I was definitely happy with my choice to make this a no-repeat workout.
If you have any questions about the exercises, feel free to leave me a comment or check out the video to watch for form.
