I’ve been quite the gym rat lately. It’s almost absurd how excited I am to go to the gym after a ruthlessly, long day at work or a busy, tireless day of errands. I can’t seem to get enough of the treadmill and elliptical lately.
While everyone has different areas of their body they prefer to work out, I usually focus on my legs, thighs, and glutes. I’m a born runner, so I’ve always had strong legs, but I work hard to keep my muscles looking slim versus bulky.
Now for the fun part. I thought I’d unveil a website I visit religiously: FitBottomedGirls. My favorite workout was posted March 29, 2012 and I’ve been following it to a tee for the past 4 months. It’s called The Ultimate Hips, Bum, and Thigh Workout by Amanda Russell, an Olympic-trained athlete, celebrity fitness expert, model, founder of The AR Program, and Google’s “Next Top Fitness Personality in 2012″.
What to do: Perform 50 reps of each exercise and complete as many rounds as you can in 15 minutes, leaving you with a big burn. If you’re sore tomorrow, you’ll know it’s working!
