I mentioned previously that since the marathon, I’ve taken a break from running and have concentrated on strength training. Today I wanted to share one of my favorite glute/leg workouts that I’ve done this summer.
I LOVE training my legs and glutes. Granted, one of the reasons is that I can eat more on leg day ( 😉 ) but I also love the way that my lower body responds to weight training. For this workout, I combined eight of my favorite lower body exercises. I do the exercises in groups of two and rest for about 30 seconds after the second exercise. If I find that I need a little longer rest, I take it! I repeat the group of two exercises twice so that I do each exercise a total of 3 times. I hope you like the workout! If you have any questions or if you try the workout, please comment and let me know!

Dumbbell rear lunges (10 on each leg)
(Complete one set of dumbbell lunges and move straight to one set of hip thrusts without resting. After completing the hip thrusts, rest for 30 – 60 seconds. Repeat entire combination for a total for 3 rounds).
Kettlebell goblet squat (12-15)
Leg press (feet near the top of the foot plate) (12-15)
Abductors with exercise band (12-15)
Dumbbell step-up with an optional kickback on each step (contract glute while lifting your leg toward the back) (15 on each side)
