Butts and Guts Workout
Sometimes in order to get comfortable in your own skin, you have to first get really uncomfortable in your own skin! This is a fun workout that you can do with a partner – no gym required. Things are always more fun with a buddy and you are doing each other a huge favour by helping one another to be healthy, fit, and achieve your goals.
This workout can either be done on its own or as, what I like to call, a post lifting FUN-ISH TO FINISH!
This workout is designed to help shape your booty as well as your mind. Tap into that aggressor within and be gutsy in pushing yourself, each other. The first 2 rounds will serve as your warmup as you grease your grooves and get your muscles, nervous system and cardio warmed up. After that though, start bringing that A-game. 45 seconds each exercise with 15 seconds to catch your breath or transition. 4-6 rounds with 60 seconds rest in between rounds.
Partner High-Five Power Squat Hops – facing each other, squat down and touch the ground then pop up into a jump squat and high five your partner. Squat and touch your right hand to your left foot, pop up, and high five your right hand to your partner’s opposite hand. Switch sides and repeat for time.
Partner Pushup Punches – face each other in a pushup position. You both do a push up then as you come up, reach out to the opposite side and lightly punch your partner in the face (lol just kidding!) tap your partner’s hand.
Lateral Lunge to Crossover Smack – face each other with feet shoulder-width apart. You will both step to the side (lateral lunge) but in opposite directions. As you push off, come back to stand and high five (smack) your partner’s hand like tag-teaming in wrestling lol and you immediately switch to lunge the other way. Repeat for time.
Jab-Cross Sprawl – face each other in a strong athletic stance. Partner 1 will hold their hands out front while partner 2 hits their hands with a 1-2 jab-cross combo then sprawls our (like a burpee without the pushup). As soon as partner 2 gets back to their feet, partner 2 holds out their hands while partner 1 hits the hands than the ground.
Leap Frogs to Inchworm to Pushup – just like when you were a kid, one person is curled on the ground while the other will (with wide legs) leap over. When the frog lands, he/she will inchworm walkout, perform a pushup, then be the ball on the ground for their partner.
Boom and a Woooooh! There you go. A fun yet challenging addition to your days to bring you a sweet butt and test your guts.
