Blossoms fallen so thick they remind you of purple snowfall. The gentle roar of bees and hummingbirds as they fly amongst the lilac riot. A gentle breeze that stirs the scents of spring. These are a few of my favorite things about simpler living.
Three killer moves for bigger Glutes 🍑, stronger legs, and a resilient posterior chain. .
The best part is you don’t need a ton of equipment or space ✅.......and yes sometimes I like to train to slow jams, don’t judge .
1. Contralateral Reverse Lunge
2. Banded Kettlebell Hip Hinge or Romanian Deadlift (RDL) (update not shown b/c IG blocked it 😐)
3. Kettlebell Swing .
The contralateral reverse lunge is a gem 💎 of an exercise that will build bulletproof legs. The banded hip hinge is an excellent way to reinforce the proper hinge pattern because the band reinforces the technique and it adds additional resistance to the weight being used. And finally, everyone knows what a kettlebell swing is BUT are you performing them correctly 🤔......The KB swing is a hip hinge not a squat. You are working the posterior chain (hamstrings, glutes, & low back) and your core muscles not your quads and shoulders. It does not matter how high the kettlebell swings!! Queues to look for; shoulders packed, arms relaxed, hinge at the waist, tight core (plank position at the top), squeeze the glutes hard to finish and let the bell swing naturally like a pendulum. .
