Is the Get Lean Challenge kicking your butt yet? Well this exclusive workout from Katie Dunlop of Love Sweat Fitness definitely will. We've partnered with Katie to make the impossible possible: a booty routine without any squats.
Video of the Day
So if your knees need a break or you are so over squats, this video is for you. Squats are a great way to strengthen your glutes but they also work (and may tend to overwork) your thighs, hips, quads and hamstrings. Katie will show you moves that isolate the glutes, so you know how to zero in on toning the booty.
Here's the workout:
- Bridge Hip Lifts
- Single Leg Bridges
- Heel Lifts
- Dolphin Tails
How to Join the 30-Day Get Lean Challenge:
1. Download the MyPlate App
Documenting your food and activity might seem like overkill, but it’s not. People who track their calories and physical activities enjoy greater success losing weight and keeping it off for good!
Tracking everything honestly is essential to making the 30-Day Get Lean in 2018 Challenge work for you. Sometimes you’re not even aware of everything you consume, but once you start tracking it, you’ll think twice before you make poor choices. And that’s a good thing.
- Daily meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and snacks
- Exercise and activity
- BMI (Body Mass Index)
2. Print Out Your Daily Calendar
Isn't it so satisfying to check things off of your to-do list? Each day during the 30-Day Get Lean in 2018 Challenge, you're accountable for five key steps: tracking breakfast, lunch and dinner; tracking your water intake; and either walking or running.
