I have been loving my living room booty workouts !! We got some bowflex dumbbells and now I can finally get in a good leg workout in the house while the kids nap ( or climb all over me ) I did these two workouts last week and I woke up SO SORE! I love that feeling , do you? I love when I am struggling to walk up and down stairs and stand up from peeing, ha! The soreness makes me feel like I had a great workout . I did lots of stretching and foam rolling after these workouts .
Id love to hear from you after you try one of the workouts below! Comment below or on my instagram and let me know how sore you are.
Two Living Room Booty Workouts
Living Room Booty Workout One:
This workout took me 30 minutes and it was a perfect leg day burner. I moved quickly with little rest to keep my heart rate up. I added weight to every set throughout this workout . For example I started with 15 lbs for pull throughs and ended at 30.
3 sets of 15 dumbbell pull throughs + band kickbacks x10
Below is another leg day burner that is only 30 minutes long . I kept the weight on the lighter side ( 30 lbs) so I could move through the workout without much rest! 6 rounds:
10 sumo squats
10 goblet squat
10 squat to deadlift
20 band walk ( each leg )
Finish with a bunch of different glute bridge moves ! 🔥🔥
Its been just about three months since I had Remi , crazy how fast time flys by. I was cleared by my doctor at 5 weeks and was so ready to start working out again. At first I took things slow , using light weights and lots of rest. I’m so happy to share my postpartum fitness plan with you , I hope you will follow along with me! Reaching goals is always more fun when you have others working with you.
My Postpartum Fitness Plan
Workouts: Now that I am 3 months pp I am working out just as hard as I was before ( just with lighter weights till I build my strength back ) At first I did take it slow, modifying when needed and dropping weight size when it felt like too much. I know it’s not smart to jump right back in to the weights I did before I was pregnant.
My plan : I started with a new beachbody program ( liift 4 ) that has weight lifting and hiit cardio. The plan is only 4 days a week, so I felt like it was the perfect program to help me get back on track. By the end of the 6th week I started adding in more of my own workouts and was ready for something new. Now I am doing a few different workouts on BOD, a few from my local cross fit gym, making up my own and doing lots of booty workouts I find on instagram
Nutrition: I am very loosely counting macros using my fitness pal ap. I have counted macros before and have numbers I know I need to hit to see results. I’m tracking my food and aiming for my numbers but I’m not going crazy! If I go over my numbers its okay, Im nursing and some days I def need more food ! When I counted macros before my ” coach ” started me with some super low numbers that I did not like. I did a 12 week program after have Brody and he had me cut fat for the first 4 weeks.
My Macros: This time around I started with my numbers from week 6 of my old program . I am aiming for 115 grams of protein, 50 grams of fat and 240 grams of carbs. The hardest number for me to hit is my carbs! Again I’m not getting too crazy with ” hitting my numbers” . I am just using them as a guideline to help keep me feeling good and on track.
Life: Life with two kids is definitely different ! Some days I have all the time in the world and can get in an awesome workout, other days I can’t even fit in washing my face!! And that’s okay. I know I don’t need to workout every day , its okay to miss days and I know I shouldn’t feel bad about that. Eventually I can get back to working out 5-6 times a week, whether it’s in a few months or a year. I still don’t have Remi on a sleep schedule during the day ( I’m working on it! ) so my workouts are at different times each day which screws up my eating. Some days I intermittent fast by accident and end up eating my first meal sometime after noon and half my macros after dinner! My goal is to spread my meals out better throughout he day.
