get a sore, tight booty.

Yesterday at the gym I did an awesome leg workout that left my butt feeling nice and sore today.

For me, I feel that if my ass ain’t sore the next day, I didn’t hit it hard enough (which isn’t true but I just love being sore…Nyah-Nyah).

So here’s a workout for a tight ass! As always… listen to your body and consult a trainer if you need help. I ain’t responsible if you tear your ass muscles, mk.

I did 3 sets of 10 reps at the heaviest weight I could do without sacrificing form. I’ll list my weights below if I can remember what they were. But, if you do this workout, adjust the weigh to your needs.

This workout took me about an hour to complete (I don’t do cardio on leg days). It may seem like a lot of exercises, but keep rest time limited to 30 seconds. Some people will think I’m crazy for doing so many exercises, but this is just what works for me. I also cut down legs to once per week so I now have 2 rest days a week so I try to target all the muscles in my legs.

Below are videos to let you see the right form for each exercise. I love using YouTube for looking up different exercises and seeing the proper form. There’s nothing worse than doing and exercise with crap form!

Sumo Squat – 65lbs

Really sink deep into your heels, don’t half ass the squat, do a full range of motion and pause at the bottom a little to feel the burn. Usually at the end of the last rep I hold it at the bottom for 5 or so seconds.

Stiff Legged Deadlift – 60lbs

Glute Kickback – Bodyweight *I did 20 reps instead of 10 (I did this standing instead of on all fours)

I super setted the glute kickback with the barbell glute bridge.

*the video shows them staying in one position, I walk with the barbell.

Basic One Leg Squat – Bodyweight (I didn’t use a second bench to rest my foot on, I just kept it off the ground as best as I could. This will hurt your ass!!)

Hip Abductor – 170lbs

Leg Extensions – 95lbs

Hamstring Curl – 35 lbs (I do it the way Erin Stern does [love her!!!] around the 45 second mark. Both legs bring it up on the way up and one leg brings it down on the negative)

Weighted Calf Raises – 105lbs (I like to pause for a second and squeeze at the top)
