19 Minute Butt & Thigh Shaper

So I had a request for this workout. I mean, not this specific workout but something that would target the butt and thighs. This is a pretty common area of complaint for a lot of women, as we tend to hold weight there, so I of course decided to make the workout. All you’ll need is one weight. It can be a dumbbell, kettle bell, really any kind of weight that will work for the listed moves. They are also all shown in the first few minutes of the video if you want to peek before starting!

The workout is a combination of plyometric exercises (though nothing too crazy) and more traditional weighted exercises. This is a great way to train! With the short breaks, you get a lot done in less time.

The workout last about 19 minutes (18:40) to be exact 😀 So if you’re looking for a way to pair it, there are tons of options and it really just depends on what you want to do! If you want to make it a total body day, adding this 20 Minute Upper Body Shape Up workout is a great choice. You could also add some cardio, abs,  a little more leg work, or leave it as a stand alone workout!

One of the things that I’ve been sharing today via Instagram, Insta story and snapchat is the importance of realizing that progress takes time. We all wish that the first workout we done and salad eaten magically gave us rock hard abs and a lifted butt, I get it, that would be ammmazing! But we have to remember not to get discouraged if our progress doesn’t come as quickly as we expect. Everyone has a different body and just because someone at the gym says they had amazing results in a month 1. doesn’t mean it’s true and 2. doesn’t mean that you will have that same exact experience. We all start somewhere different. We all have different amounts of time to give to our workouts. We are all in different stage on the way to nourishing our body well. The thing to remember is to keep going. When you come back day after day with your continued effort, giving your best, your results will come. So don’t quit! You’ve got this!
