10 Minute At Home Booty Workout

Even though your butt can look great in tight jeans or help to build confidence, there are so many more reasons than this! There are three major glute muscles that will be targeted in this short workout, gluteus maximas, gluteus medius and gluteus minimus. These muscles extends the hip (pulls the thigh behind you), does internal and external hip rotation, and abducts the hip (your lateral movement to the side). They are basically highly important! But for people who live a sedentary lifestyle or sit for the most part of the day, these muscles are often weak and under-worked.

By sitting, our glutes “turn off”which can lead to our hip flexors (the muscles that pull the thigh forward) get tight and can lead to injury. So with workouts like this that focuses on squatting with the addition to weights/without weights (strength/endurance), we can alleviate back pain, increase athletic performance, prevent knee pain, and improve posture! Now you know what your glutes do for you, here are four moves you can do for them!

20 sec: work out

10 sec: rest

So for the first 20 seconds, you workout as hard as you can and then rest for 10 seconds. This is for one set. In total, you will complete 8 rounds. You can do whatever workout you would like that targets large muscle groups: burpees, squats, lunges, planks, etc.

For this particular tabata, we will be targeting the most love/hate muscle group - abdominal; using planks as the workout!
