Tight Tuesday: Glute Lifter
Many women, like us, always try to find an easy workout that will target that one muscle group in one move. No, it isn't easy trying to workout three muscles in one exercise, but yes, it can be done. I like to play and experiment with my workouts to see what works and how I can add variety into my workout routine.
This one exercise that we will be showing you is one that targets your quads, hamstrings, core, and glutes (and your calves, secondary). This move is called "Glute Lifter". First, start by raising one foot onto a platform, as shown, or on a chair. Anything that is stable and elevated should do the trick. Lift your body up with that one leg. For the opposite leg: while bringing that leg up, lift with force to bring your knee to your chest in a crunching motion (this helps workout your core). Slowly bring that leg down, while still keeping that first leg on the platform. Repeat this for 3 sets of 15-20 reps. *For added intensity, I add 5lb dumbbells to each arm.
This is a great leg exercise to add to your arsenal and I know you will be feeling great after doing this. Please let us know how you like this exercise.

Thank you and have a Tight Tuesday!
