Lately I’ve been spending more time training, yet less time in the gym. Between yoga studios, classes and at home workouts, I probably go to the actual gym gym, 1-2 times a week, and...more like 1. When I do though, you guessed it, it’s glutes.
I’ve been training for many years now, so continually adding heavy weight is not my goal. I’m more about time under tension, volume and getting blood to the muscle which equals a great pump. I stretch lots and love a healthy body that feels good from inside to out, muscles to joints and never felt better. I do zero cardio. That’s not because I don’t believe in it, it’s because I don’t need it for weight loss, and I get my cardio for heart health from the super intense workouts I do in hot yoga.
Using the ADVANCED band from our BootyQueen Apparel band set. If you haven’t felt or tried our bands?... ... let me just say this one is no joke! Finish the reps with your banded squat, making sure you keep your knees out as you squat down (again super hard with this advanced band) and go right into a banded kickback.
You’ll see here my favorite way to do these is all the way up with your kickback, squeeze at the top, and DO NOT touch the floor at the bottom.
This keeps your muscle under the constant tension I’m talking about. When you can’t do anymore reps, finish with some pulses ...and a smile! And if you think banded kickbacks are at all easy?... again, you haven’t tried our BootyQueen Bands!
