TRX Leg and Booty Workout

trx play

I got a TRX for my house because I love how this simple system takes my bodyweight workouts to the NEXT LEVEL! They have them at a lot of gyms, and if you want to put one in your house you can order one on Amazon. I love mixing up my workout programs throughout the year, and after 8 weeks of lifting I wanted to give my joints a break and focus back on calisthenics. So I'm combining TRX resistance training with my famous bodyweight circuits - and feeling awesome! To learn the most … [Read more...]

Cable Deadlifts

You really want to stabilize the shoulders for this one - meaning don't let them pull too far forward out of the socket.

I go lighter on the weight than I would with a barbell. Repeat for 12. I added … [Read more...]

Booty and Core Sculpting Workout

20120514-170004.jpg

This workout hits your core and glutes hard. I go for 10 reps on these with heavier weight to really increase muscle growth and maximize fat burning. I like to have defined legs and glutes that look muscular, but still have that lean-body look. To really get definition and see your effort in the gym pay off, go for heavy weight one to two times per week. Beginners should stick to lower weights to build strength and go for 3 rounds. Advanced should do heavier weight and try … [Read more...]
