Today it was only half the group as T and L was sick. I really felt sorry for them, not only for being sick but also for missing out on a fierce workout! It was no core warm-up today; we went straight on hitting the legs hard doing squats with a weighted barbell by pyramiding the weights starting at 65 lbs. working up to 105 lbs. I am not a big fan of squats because I just don’t have the technique. One of the reason why is because that my calves are overdeveloped from my years of being a gymnast and standing on my toes.
When we were done with the quads we started working the hamstrings doing Romanian deadlifts and curls and it was now when the “real butt workout” really started! So Jonathan’s idea was to exhaust the hammies so when we started doing our 40 walking launches with 2x15lbs kettle bells then 30 WL 2×35 lbs. followed 20 WL 2×30 lbs. to finish without weights for the entire length of the gym, a roughly guess would be 60-70 WL we were really focusing on that ass of ours!
Walking back to get my water bottle I was joking that I was not having any blood left in my head because it was all in my legs and I was walking like a 80 year-old…lol. After a short rest not thinking I could crank anything more out of the legs we worked the leg extensions and the leg press.
The last and final two exercise we did we put the focus back on the glut again and all of a sudden it felt like I was back in the that old stinking gymnastic hall kicking my leg up behind my head but now not so high and with a weight attached to my leg.
I am actually not going anywhere on spring break but I will be thinking of all of you who are. Meanwhile I keep on focusing on that behind of mine because although the summer feels like it is far away, it will be here before we know it and I will then be squeezing it into bikini for sure!
Like your behind needs anymore help. I bet it fits just right in your bikini.
Haha…being a mom I guess this is a never ending struggle…at least for me 😉
