This is the first in a series of videos to show you how you can take exercises that most of you know from the gym and create a killer burn workout with almost no equipment.
Glutes – Part 1 focuses on the gluteus maximus muscle as well as legs and core. It shows the variations on squat and lunge exercises.
Part 2 shows different variations on a deadlift.
Make sure to do a 5-10 minute warm-up before starting any of the exercises, perform them slowly but with either no rest in between sets or up to 30 seconds of rest only.
Do 12-20 repetitions depending on the level of your strength, endurance and balance, starting with no weight and progressing to higher weight only when you have mastered the previous level. Start with 1 set and increase to 2-3 sets in the following workouts as these exercises can produce extreme soreness.
The exercises I am showing here are amazing for shaping your buttocks and legs and even though they look pretty easy on the video, your muscles will be screaming from burn.
Please, always consult your physician before starting any exercise program.
