Workout Wednesday: Bikini Butt & Legs


Did the bold words "BIKINI" grab your attention to read this post? 

I don't blame you, I would do the same thing ;)

With March finally here we are only months away from showing off that bikini bod. Part of the ultimate bikini bod is working toward that perky booty, and tight hamstrings. Start adding this exercise to your regular gym routine, and I promise you'll love the results just in time for swimsuit season.  

Targeted muscles: Glutes and Hamstrings

What will you need: Resistance band. In the images I took a single band, and just tied it. You can also purchase tubes that are connected in a circle. Here are two good options here + here

The workout - Lift the Butt

  1. For your first exercise you want to take the band and wrap it around your legs. 
  2. Start in an upright position with your feet hip width and parallel. 
  3. Bring hands in prayer position, and hinge forward from the waist.
  4. Lift the working leg 3/4, and press it back behind you. Repeat 15x then switch sides. 
  5. Do 3 sets of this exercise. 

The workout - Slim Outer Hip


I included a side profile, and profile version of this exercise since the side profile is hard to see what I am doing with my leg

  1. Stay in the same starting position as the exercise above.
  2. Bend your heel all the way to your butt, and lift the knee out to the side.
  3. Repeat lift/lower 15x then work the other side.
  4. Do 3 sets of this exercise.
Tank: Chaser c/o (old similar here + here) / Leggings: Lululemon (similar here and here) / Hat: Target
