Barbell Workout For Your Butt

Bookmark

by

I am having such a great time with this month’s I {Heart} My _____ series! I am trying my best to dream up new and different workouts (which is such a fun mental challenge) and I am really feeling them (which means they were physical challenge, too)!

I tend to do a lot of full body workouts because that is what I like to do, so doing these focused upper and lower body videos has been a terrific change of pace. Of course, I did sneak in one full body workout this week, but I will get to that in a minute.

I had a request recently for a barbell workout, and I will be honest, I was happy to film one (because I enjoy working with a barbell), but I did not think it would get a lot of views on YouTube. I do not think of barbells as super common home gym equipment.

Boy, was I wrong about that! The response was terrific! Which always makes me happy – I like to make workouts that you guys will enjoy and actually do. And this one is such a great strength builder that I really hope you will come back to it again and again.

You can follow along with the video below or take this printable with you to the gym if you do not have a barbell.

  • The first round is ten reps, the second is twenty.
  • The warm up and round one are unweighted.
  • Round two uses the barbell (or a set of dumbbells).

Warm Up:

  • 10 gentle High Knees + 20 Jumping High Knees
  • 10 gentle Booty Kickers + 20 Jumping Booty Kickers
  • 10 gentle Curtsy Lunges + 20 Side Shuffles

Main Workout (10x Each Round One, 20x Each With The Barbell For Round Two):

  • Front Squats
  • Single Leg Deadlifts
  • Good Mornings
