Here’s a fun fact: Your glutes are the largest muscle group in your body, so nearly everything you do with the lower body is powered by your backside. So if you don’t know what the heck a #belfie is (but epecially if you do), carve out 10 minutes of your day to try this quick butt workout.
After quickly warming up the hip flexors, you’ll perform each move statically first and then with pulses — this is where you’ll really feel the burn! The best part is that you’ll also be simultanouesly working your core with each exercise, so you get two targeted workouts for the price of one. Grab a mat to get started.
To recap, you will need an exercise mat for this class. Each move is performed for about 30 seconds.
- Hip Circle
