Ok, so now you’ve stopped laughing at my ridiculous pineapple hair and gormless grin, let’s get cracking!
I will start this post by saying that I’m really not one to overly focus on one particular area of my body, nor would I say that I’m someone who works out purely to look a certain way. I train to be strong, capable and healthy, aesthetics is merely a result of my efforts (or lack of efforts). All that being said, I don’t think there’s a girl out there (including me!) that doesn’t want to know how to better tone her derriere!
This dynamic exercise will hurt, in the best way possible!
- Start in your deep sumo squat position, keep all the weight on your heels… I like to sparkle my toes up a bit to make sure I’m not leaning forwards onto them.
- Then come up slightly as you move over and go back down into your deep side lunge. Again keeping that weight back on your heels. Also try to keep your back straight and your chest proud.
- Now, back up and down again into your deep central sumo squat. Remembering not to let your knees come over your ankles, they should be pretty much aligned.
- Repeat on the other side.
- Back to centre.
I would count that as one whole rep.
Aim for 3 sets of 12 and it should give you a cheeky little burn! Cheeky… get it?! Haha! (Sorry, couldn’t help myself!) You can do this with or without weights and you could start with sets of less than 12 if you wish, whatever you feel works best, for you.
If you do try it, be sure to let me know what you think, I would love your feedback!
