Lower Body & Core Workout

Time to get your ass and abs feelin' a lil spicy!

Happy Friday y'all. Hope everyone had a wonderful week and you are getting ready to go enjoy your weekend.

Time for a TRUTH BOMB. One of the biggest things I struggle with in my fitness routine is feeling like I need to be going balls to the wall 100% of the time. CrossFit has probably brainwashed me into this mindset, but I feel like I am not the only one who feels this way. I love leaving the gym absolutely exhausted and drenched in sweat because I feel like I accomplished something. I went above and beyond and my body will reward me for it.

Yeah well that mindset is dumb. I can be dumb sometimes. Maybe all the time, but I am here to tell y'all I am acknowledging it and if you feel this way I hope you are too. Our bodies cannot keep going at 1000% all the time. They need rest. They need recovery. And if our bodies don't get these things, they will get injured. And then you are at square one...which is not a fun place to be.

HIIT workouts are great workouts, I am not here to tell you that they aren't. They are my absolute fucking favorite. But you can't be doing them 7 days a week, 365 days a year. You HAVE to incorporate some strength into your routine. Strength train damnit! Train your muscles to get stronger so they can endure those killer HIIT workouts that are building your muscular endurance.

This lower body workout will get your glutes MOVING. With this workout, really try and focus on keeping your core tight. This is one of my weaknesses which is why I have really fun back problems! Feel every rep, every movement; speed is not the goal in this one. If you give this one a try, you know what to do! Tag me on Instagram @sweat_and_sweets XOXO
