Hey!! We just got back from a long Spring Break! I always love the time off from school and having the kids home, but I love schedules and order too. We went to St George. It was colder than normal and very crowded (: We still got in some beautiful hikes, a little time by the pool, a few great workouts, and we ate at an amazing new restaurant!
The restaurant we went to was called Viva Chicken. Their specialty is Peruvian rotisserie chicken. Best chicken ever! I got a salad with kale, romaine, quinoa, mango, edamame…etc. I need this place by me!!
Next up! Lower body workout coming your way! I love working legs and butt. It’s harder than anything, but if you want to see results you MUST train lower body. You will burn more calories, up your metabolism, and strengthen your knees and core! Win, win, win! I combined two workouts I found. Over the next few days ever angle of my legs and butt were sore! I’ll be doing this again this week!! Here ya go! I added a few pictures to help (:
Lower body barbell circuit #1 I’m using dumbbells in the pictures since I was at home. At the gym I use a 50 lb. bar.
Complete each exercise for 5 reps (each side). Set a timer for 8 minutes and see how many times you can go through it. Do this for 3 rounds.
Lower body circuit #2
SUPERSET: 5 SETS (Yes, 5!!) I use a 40 lb. bar.
Dumbbell or barbell step ups-10 each leg
3 Jump Squats and 3 Push ups
One leg dumbell or barbell squat-10 each leg
P.S. I added an ABS exercise at the end of each round in both circuits. I did in and outs on the bench and bicycles. Killer! Make sure you stretch after!
O.K. That’s all for today! Time to sit with my little girl who’s home with strep today ): Keep working hard. Set goals. Exercise. Eat for fuel.
