Fit Friday – Quick Legs and Booty Workout!

A quick and fun legs and booty workout! | read more at happilythehicks.com

How is it already the first Friday of the month?! I still can’t believe it’s March… I feel like just yesterday we were taking down Christmas decorations, and now here I am a week away from Spring Break. The past few months have been a complete whirlwind, between the busy season at work (I’m lookin’ at you, STAAR), training for a half marathon, becoming a LipSense distributor and working on my photography business. I have never been so busy, but I am loving every minute of it! 

However, something I’ve come to realize in the midst of this chaos, is that working out and taking care of myself can get pushed to the back burner. Yes, I am training for a half marathon, but it can get hard to make time to go on runs or put things on hold because I need to get some rest. That’s why workouts like the one I am sharing today have become my best friends. Not only are they quick to complete, but you can definitely feel it the next day! It’s packed with muscle burning moves that will get your metabolism revving, and won’t take up hours of your day. That’s my kind of workout! 

My outfit is my newest purchase from Fabletics and I loooove it. The leggings are so fun, and I’m digging the mesh detail. Super cute, amiright? The top is the Aventura Tank, and my bottoms are the Zoey Capri.
The mini band I used is from Tone it Up, but you can find some other ones here! And if you’re looking for some dumbbells to add to your home workout equipment, check out these, or head over to this post where I talk all about my favorite at-home workout equipment. And yes, they are all from Amazon. It’s a sickness, y’all! ; )

Deadlift with Weights

Holding dumbbells (I like to use heavier weights for this move), and feet shoulder width apart, bend straight down at the waist keeping your knees in athletic position. The weights should “slide” down your legs. Stand straight up, squeezing the backs of your legs and booty as you do so! 

Leg Abduction with Mini Bands

    Yesss! Exactly what I needed. I’ve been away with a death in the family and haven’t been to the gym in about 6 days and it’s absolutely killing me. I need to sweat it out and I followed along as I read your post. :)

    March 8th, 2017 at 9:48 am

    A great workout and love the brief video for form! I needed this – trying to workout at home on my own. Not always the easiest! Thanks!

  27. Rebecca @ Happily the Hicks

    March 8th, 2017 at 9:47 am

    Thanks girl! The videos are a lot of fun, and I’ve found that they really help when trying to do moves with proper form. I know at-home workouts aren’t the easiest for everyone, but I have -10 motivation to go to a gym haha

    March 8th, 2017 at 9:46 am

    Yes! I LOVE barre classes, and the little movements that are KILLER. And girl, I getchu! Those resistance bands are insane… I’m doing an entire workout post using them soon. :)
