Can’t get to the gym? Do this, to lift your butt & tone your legs

My clients told me they wanted a workout they can do when they are on vacation or when they can’t get to the gym. Here’s a short, 20-minute, lower body workout, with an emphasis on the glutes (the butt), that you can follow along to. All you need is a soft surface, like a yoga mat, or carpet, a glute band (aka booty band) [you can do the exercises without a band, but it’s a much better workout with it], a foam roller and/or a Swiss ball. You can always take it up a notch, by adding dumbbells or kettlebells. If you have YouTube TV, you can watch this video on your TV.

In one section of the video, I misspoke, and said to bring your feet closer to your butt if your quads (the front of your legs, above the knee), feels tight. I meant to say, to push your feet back a little bit. [I get nervous when I’m being filmed].

Try to do this workout twice a week to strengthen your glutes, hamstrings, hips and quads, but if you’re not sore, you can definitely do it three times a week; just take off at least one day in between.

You can comment here, or on YouTube to let me know what you think of this workout.
