40 Days to Fit ~ Days 36 & 37

Another Monday! My plan for today's workout is to work my BUTT with lots of LUNGES~In order to hit your GLUTES when lunging there are several things you can do-
Foucus on using yourFRONT leg for the movement.
Bend forward at the waist (chest to knee) at the bottom of the movement to gain a GOOD stretch in your glute
Pre exhaust your other muscles with exercises like - squats, leg extenisions, leg curls, etc...
Utilize WALKING LUNGES with weight they are proven to be the most effective at hitting butt muscles
Here's a couple on of my FAVORITE moves for working my butt~ Smith BUTT Lunges: By bringing my front foot in and leaning my chest towards my knee, my glutes are stimulated much more. BE PREPARED for a sore BUTT the day after these, lol!
