This week has kicked off a new workout routine. I loved the last one, and I’ll miss it. I was able to set a new squat record, significantly increase core definition and strength, and still increase my running miles.
However, it’s time to shake things up a bit. I have a somewhat similar routine that I have done in the past. I found this worn-out sheet in my binder of collected workout tips n’ tricks. I have no idea if I created it or when I last completed it, but apparently it was worth keeping.
Odds are I created it, or at least customized it to fit my needs, so with a few more tweaks, here it is.
I hope ya’ like it. I actually had to get to the office early yesterday, so I didn’t even have time to do day one according to plan. I still got in a good chest workout at home, so I’m not too worked up about it. Even though I have the day off today to vote, I’m still hitting the gym early. (Side Note – I’m no physical trainer; I just know what works for me.)
Happy Election Day!

I hope everyone’s weekend was as good as mine. As some of you know, I celebrated St. Patty’s in Savannah, GA. I’m currently uploading (and giggling at) my pictures, so I’ll have more to share on that tomorrow. For now, enjoy this booty workout – goodness knows my bod needs some exercise after all those fatty foods and green beers!
This workout should take approximately 25 minutes to complete. Complete 3 sets of each exercise. Do 10 reps per set of moves 1-3, and complete 12 reps per set of moves 4-5.
1. Squats (Don’t be scared to go heavy on these, and use better form than I did in this picture.)
2. Split Squats (These are great with the bench at the gym and light weights.)
3. Plié Squats
**I’m sorry, but I’m sure y’all understand why I chose not to post pictures of plié squats in tight shorts!
4. Single-Leg Bridge Raises (They burn in just the right spot.)
5. Full Donkey Kicks (Pull your knee in tight before extending.)
