New blog idea for the new year!
In a weekly “Move of the Week” post, I will share just one exercise move with you all. With pictures and how to directions.
This might end up being more like a “Move of the Month” but we’ll see how it goes.
Move of the Week: The Booty Blaster
Lie on one side. Turn top leg a little forward, so knee is on the ground.
Flex your top foot and push leg toward the upper diagonal.
Keeping the foot flexed, extend the top leg all the way so leg straightens but knee doesn’t lock.
Pause for a split second at the top, then bring knee back down to starting position in step 1 and repeat. Make sure your knee comes back down to the ground, or else you are cheating!
Try doing 3 sets of 8, and then increasing as you get stronger to 3 sets of 10, 3 sets of 12, etc.
Want to make it harder? Hold a dumbbell on your outer thigh as you work through the range of motion.
This one REALLY targets that hard to get outer thigh/back of the leg/butt area. Definitely a new favorite of mine!
Question of the Day: What’s your favorite butt or outer thigh exercise?
