Resistance Training

Good morning lovely people! And happy Sunday 😀

As yesterday was my ‘rest day’ this morning I had a little booty building workout 😉 I tried adding resistance training to my workout, and dayum it was a killer! My legs and bum were ON FIREEEE 😛

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset My workout today was as follows:

  • warm up 50 kg back squats
  • 2 x 10 60 kg back squats
  • 3 x 10 50 kg deadlifts
  • 5 x 10 hip abduction ( moving your leg sideways away from the body – engages the glutes )
  • 5 x 10 hip extension ( leg moving straight backwards away from the body – glutes are engaged here too )

You can view my video that shows the hip abduction and extension on Instagram too 🙂

I am still aiming to squat 60 kg without struggling as much as i still do, and I want to be able to do a max set of 80 kg one day 😛 But progress is progress, no matter how small or slow! ❤

Resistance training is good to do for your weak muscle groups. Mine include my hip-flexors, so doing hip extension exercises with some resistance will help to strengthen them. 🙂  Resistance bands are very useful to have for gym, there are so many different exercises that you can do with them, and they are a very good foundation to start training with instead of jumping into weights.
