Running Dirty. Eating Clean. Loving Life.

5 Minute Glute Workout

This week I’m going to be bringing you some quick workouts that target different parts of your body.  These workouts are great because you can put a couple together for a full strength training session, or you can tack a quick workout to the end of your usual routine to really target those trouble areas.  The workouts will only be 4-5 minutes long, so you can easily fit them into your busy schedule.  The first workout this week targets those glutes.   Everyone wants a firmer, tighter backside.  These exercises will help shape and firm that butt.  For this workout, you’ll want to set your interval timer to 5 rounds of 50/10 intervals.  You will work hard for 50 seconds with 10 seconds of rest between the exercises.  Here’s the break down.
