Weekly Workout Total Body Series: Glutes and Hamstrings

Welcome to week 4 of the Total Body Workout. This week we will focus on your lower body – glutes, hamstrings, and even a little  work on the calves. And of course, while you focus on the lower body, you’ll continue to work from head to toe in an efficient and functional workout, using a small exercise ball (if you have one).

Each week will feature a different total body workout that will also highlight a specific muscle group. Last week was core, this week is thighs. Here is the official line up for the month:

Week 1 – Core (Abdominals, Obliques, Lower Back, and Hips)

Week 2 – Thighs (Inner, Outer, and Quads)

Week 3 – Upper Body (Chest, Upper Back, and Arms)

Week 4 – Lower Body (Glutes, Calves, and Hamstrings)

After the 4 weeks, you can stream the videos together for a full-length Total Body Workout.

So click below, grab a ball (or other substitute as explained in the video :) ), and start working that lower body!

What is your favorite part of a total body workout? Leave a comment and let’s discuss!

Peace and Love,

This also comes together in a few minutes, after some minor prep work, most of it which can be done while you do other things (even sleep!).  Continue reading
