Target Tuesday: Glutes and Hamstrings

Hi friends!

If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you know I’ve recently made the transition from daily gym lifter to at-home workout enthusiast. I thought I’d really slump on this one, but it’s actually been going great. So great in fact that I thought I should start sharing more of the workouts, so here’s the first of the Target Tuesdays.

High-intensity interval workouts are only as good as you make them, so you really have to put your energy into this one. If you’re unsure of how to do any of the moves listed, a quick google search should provide you with plenty of demo videos.

So, here’s the deal. After the warm up, complete each exercise listed in the HIIT workout for 1 minute. In that 1 minute, complete as many reps as you can. Repeat. Don’t forget to stretch when you’re done!

I only did two rounds of this, and I was definitely feeling the glute and leg pain the next day. Again, I cannot reiterate enough that this type of exercise IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT. You could do 5 reps in one minute, or you could really push yourself, feel the burn and double those reps. Form is important though, so make sure you’ve got the exercise down before you try and pick up the pace. Maybe today you only do those 5 reps to let your body memorize the form, but tomorrow, you do max it out and do 15.
