Whether you’ve been following or just started following me, you should know I love to work the glutes. But that doesn’t mean I sacrifice the rest of the body! If you want to be lean and strong, you have to work the total body. This Compound Movements Total Body Workout is a great place to start.
I use compound movements in my programming. I found this has given me the best results over time without having to live in the gym. Don’t get me wrong I love to workout and lift, but I also believe in balance. Make the most of your workouts and enjoy the rest of your day!
If you love to lift like me or want to learn how to start, check out our Intro to Strength Class.

Bulgarian Split Squats
Place your foot on the bench behind you or any other surface that’s about knee height. Get into a forward lunge position with chest upright, core engaged and hips square to your body. Lower until your front thigh is almost horizontal, keeping your knee in line with your foot. Don’t let your front knee go in front of your toes. Drive-up through your front heel back to the starting position for 1 rep.
