I have been involved with physical fitness for many, many years. Most of us at one point or another have at least TRIED to get into shape. For me personally, when it comes to the battle of the bulge, the struggle is quite real!
Now with summer fast approaching, (though the weather may seem to disagree) many of us are trying to get that “beach physique.” Though we at Lifehack believe that everyone is beautiful as they are, if you are an individual who wishes to further tone, shape or lift your back side, the movements in the following video are guaranteed to whoop your butt into shape! Pun totally intended on that one!
Our friends over at Fitness Blender have put together a 100 rep squat challenge for you guys! The workout is a series of squats that are guaranteed to take your gluteus maximus, aka your buttocks, to the next level! This workout guides you through a series of 10 distinct squat movements, for 10 repetitions each. That means that you will be doing 10 different moves, 10 times each. No equipment is required for this workout. This session uses the one piece of equipment that we all have, our own bodies! Please note that the workout does not have a warm up or cool down session, as such you should do so on your own prior to starting and when completing the routine.
We can all agree that a strong core is essential to our day to day functions. Whether you realize it or not, our butts are also constantly engaged whether we are walking, standing, running or sitting. Nearly all activities that we may partake in engage the buttocks! The act of simply getting out of bed in the morning and standing up engages many parts of your body, including your buttocks! Are you picking up that box from the floor? Well, guess what, your butt is being engaged! So why not strengthen and tone it? The rest of your body will thank you for the support!
The movements you will be seeing here help tone, strengthen and shape your butt by engaging those muscles repeatedly in an insane circuit! There is no question that when it comes to targeting the butt, squats are one of the best, if not the best movement you can do. During this session, the active rest will keep your heart rate up, and has your body moving the entire time. This is an aerobic, anaerobic, intense circuit session. This very challenging routine will work your core as you are using your entire body, while simultaneously targeting your rear end! It is simple, but not easy, and you will feel a special kind of sore the next day! However, if it were comfortable, everyone would do it, right?
Let us know how this intense session went for you!
