Don’t forget your hiney!

I’ll post my full blog later, but I wanted to share today’s contest link with you~
The HAM workout correlates with the workout program I put in the forum on day #7.  Please download that if you have not yet.
We are nearing the halfway point in this 3 week contest– do you feel you’ve made any progress on your HINEY?!
Day 8 was a Summary of our previous week, and info about the 2 week plan.

As we go through the next 2 weeks I’ll post the day’s suggested workout. I’ll also be posting “HOW TO DO” the sandwich butt routines.

Today’s workout:

Lift Lower
Body
  1. Squats- 4×10
  2. Dead Lifts- 4×10
  3. Lunges -4×10
And
ABS
between all
sets!
Tips:
  • Challenge yourself to lift heavy enough to where by each 8-10 rep you feel like you may not be able to complete the move.
  • Take time between sets to recover- it is NOT a race!
  • Be sure to do each move very deliberately focused on your BUTT!
  • For single leg moves (lunges) be sure to alternate starting legs and in Dead lifts alternate hand position if you are using an over-under grip.
keep working it!!

Just to update you from my weekend:
Saturday I had the following recurring thought as I was doing my workout, “When you need to regain your mojo, Return to your roots!’

I had to return to my roots of running on Saturday to get my workout mojo flowing…I didn’t need to run far or fast or much, but my little run was just enough to get my workout momentum going again! Once I finished my little 10 min run I came in did some stretching, attacked my abs and did 115 pushups( sets of 20, 20, 25, 25, 25).

Sunday was God Day….Church was amazing! Life was good~ I took the kids to the gym and let them swim afterward. My workout was legs I did the following buffing style (little rest or active rest between sets):
warm up on a gazelle type machine by Cybex- NICE! 5 mins
Hack Squat machine
lower back extensions (booty focus)
Squats
Dead lifts
ABS- knee ups
Leg raises
leg press- plate loaded up above type machine
knee extensions
standing calf raises
Smith lunges

It was just perfect for my back and today I feel good…I still a little shooting pain and numbness in my leg, but not nearly as bad. I am getting better!! YAY!

NOW IT’s Time to ATTACK!!
Let’s have a VICTORIOUS DAY

your friend and cheerleader,
