I’ve got a super fun format for our workout today! We’ll be doing 2 complimentary exercises that target the butt and legs and get our hearts pumping.
Studies show that regular high intensity interval exercise significantly increases both aerobic and anaerobic fitness, lowers insulin resistance, and results in a number of skeletal muscle adaptations like enhanced skeletal muscle, fat oxidation, and improved glucose tolerance.
The ladder format is a favorite of mine. You begin with one rep of each move, then two, then three and keep going (in this workout we’ll go up to ten) – so you can get the fat-burning benefits of the explosive exercise, combined with a power move to sculpt and strengthen your butt and legs.
Pace yourself with me in this workout – and pay close attention to the form and options I’ll be demonstrating at the beginning. It’s far better to use a modification as we get stronger than injuring ourselves pushing too hard!
Format: Perform each move for 1 rep the first round. Perform each move for 2 reps the second round. Continue all the way up to 10.
Move 1: Sumo Squat
Move 2: Elevated Bridge Lift
