My absolute favorite booty work out. Some gyms have a dedicated machine that does this, unfortunately mine doesn’t so I make do with what I have (you could even use ankle weights). I call them “butt ups”, I usually do 3 sets of 6-12 reps on each leg, it really just depends on how much my legs will cooperate with me because these are difficult. So just to confirm, this is the lying leg curl machine, I put a mat down and press the arm bar up, adjust weight as needed, it should be difficult, I do 65lbs.

One of my favorite stretches for hamstrings.

Stand a few inches off of a wall, bend over at the hips making sure your butt DOES NOT touch the wall EVER! This is going to force weight into your toes and actually isolate the hamstrings. Usually when we bend to touch out toes out body shifts the weight to out heels making it easier on out hamstrings. When you come up, again, make sure your butt does not touch the wall.

Here’s an example of an ab roller variation, once you feel like you’ve mastered ab rolling on your knees you can move to a decline bench that will be your transition from knees to standing ab rolls.

My gym is pretty small, so we don’t have a hammer pull machine, I’ve been doing a cable variation that I’m really fond of.

Does anyone know what a light barbell weighs?  There’s like these smaller thinner ones at the gym and I can’t find that information anywhere. Let me know!

LEGS

I’ll have to take a video of butt ups next leg day, I’m not sure the proper name for them, but I love them and that’s what I call them soooooo….

If you can not life that heavy DON’T!  I only put that there to track my own progress.

Blog Change

I’ve decided to switch up my blog, I’m turning it into my fitness blog.  I feel weird posting anywhere else about my routines, nutrition, and just overall feelings about fitness….I figure this is the only place where if people want to see it they can follow you, and if not, unfollow…no feelings hurt.

getting ready for the stadium series game
