It’s Valentine’s Day soon, and to make sure you show your best ASS-etts, focus on a chest and glutes workout this week.
L is for Lift Your Butt
No pain, no gain! Do 100 Squats with 10lbs dumb bells in each hand.
Break it up into 4 sets of 25 repetitions.
If you don’t have dumb bells, then go ahead and use body weight. Try to go a little faster though since you won’t have much in terms of resistance.
For a complete squat, make sure your hips are parallel to the top of your knees at the end of the squat.
Ahem: Stand up all the way – no cheating! You want to aim for quality with your movements. Do not rush through them.
O is for Operate the Rounded Booty
Next up, 100 2nd position ballet squats. How you ask?
Get a chair and put one foot on the seat of the chair. Keep your toes turned out as if they were pointing to a mouse on the floor.
Break the set up into 4 sets of 25.
No dumb bells need here, just your body weight. If you want to spice it up, unleash your inner bootcamp instructor and make yourself do this exercise with dumb bell bicep curls as you squat down. Fun right?!
Same as before with full deep squats and TAKE YOUR TIME.
V is for Vaporize the Armpit Fat
Let’s keep it moving girl! 50 Triangle Arm Push-ups.
Get on your knees with a yoga mat and get into your knee push up position. Make a triangle shape with your opposite thumbs & first finger and place it on the floor right below your boobs. Flatten your back, tuck your butt under.
Total of 50 push ups and break them up into 5 sets of 10.
Make sure you go has deep as chest in line with bend of elbows and drop your shoulders from your ears.
E is for Express the Cleavage
Finally, show some love for the girls. Do 45 Chest flys on your back with 15lb weights in each hand. If you don’t have any dumb bells, although by now you might want to consider investing in some, then take a 1 gallon water bottle and use that.
Lay down on your mat and tuck your hips under and engage your core muscles. Bring the weights together right above your chest and bring them open so you feel the pressure in your chest and upper back muscles.
Make sure you open all the way out until the the back of your hand almost touches the floor. Again, go slow and work on squeezing your chest muscles.
You can break it into a 3 sets of 15 reps.
That’s all for today! Now go show your body some L-O-V-E!
