Booty Boost

Richard Simmons

Ski season is just around the corner, and if I want to get better, I need more muscle in my lower half. I have a pancake butt, so for the past few months I’ve been doing glute intensive workouts twice a week to give it a boost and hopefully have some more power in the snow.   This is what today’s workout looked like:

smith machine lunges 3 sets, 8 reps, 75-90lbs

leg press (feet high & wide on the plate) 3 sets, 10reps, 250lbs

sumo squats 3 sets, 10 reps, 45lbs

back hyperextensions 3 sets, 10 reps, bodyweight

cable kickbacks 3 sets, 10 reps, 25lbs each leg

When my legs feel like Jell-o at the end of a workout I know I pushed myself pretty hard.  Nothin like breakin a sweat!

  1. Sounds like you’re on the right track. I will tell you that I went snowboarding once (which I realize is NOT the same as skiing) and if it’s ANYTHING like snowboarding, I have never been more sore in my whole entire life.

    I think even my eyelashes were sore.
