Squats are great; really, I love squats. They are great for my legs, which is a constant struggle for me and makes my tushy firm and fab (just how it should be). But, even more than squats, I absolutely love, Love, LOVE booty blasters. Like many of my fitness obsessions, this one originated from my friend Liz, who kicked my butt into shape after McKenzie with Body Back boot camp classes.
Quick note: I am 22 weeks pregnant in these photos, so just ignore our little mister trying to get in on the camera action via baby bump ;)
Booty blasters are quite simple. You need minimal, to no equipment and the entire booty workout can be done in just a few minutes from practically any location (that you don’t mind dropping onto all fours). Here’s how:
Resistance Band (optional)
On your yoga mat, get down on your hands and knees. If you will be using a resistance band (not necessary, but I like the added resistance and reward) place your foot through the handle and pull the tubing with your hands, adjusting to desired resistance.
Keeping your back straight, elevate the leg with the resistance band attached to be parallel to the floor. In a slow, controlled motion, lift your leg toward the sky, squeezing your tush and tightening your core. Return it to the parallel position. You have completed your first rep.
