Hard Body Skater Workout

Feb 1, 2012 by

Legs, Butt and Abs Workout


Today I wanted to switch it upΒ bit and make things a bit more simple but intense as always. Today’s workout was focused on legs and butt in the first part, and abs in the second part. This was one of those workouts that I call ” Sneak up on you workouts “, because in the beginning you get fooled into thinking that this looks easy, but as you are going through 4th, 5th, 6th round and further, you are like Ohh Ohh, it’s burning my behind!!! Β This routine is only 20 minutes long.

All I use in this routine is my timer, a pair of dumbbells 10 lbs each and a balance ball for the second part.

Before doing this or any workout, make sure you always perform a proper warm-up.

For Workout Recap and Beginners Variation fast forward the video.

My Scores

Part one

I completed 8 full rounds ( I completed the last 4 or 5 I think after the timer had already beeped, you can see that in the video )

Part 2

I completed 2.5 parts, and I finished Side Plank Mill after the timer beeped, so my obliques look even πŸ˜‰ )

    How on earth did you get into those pants Tatianna? It looks like it would be complicated. πŸ˜‰

    • Ha Ha, they were actually pretty easy, the top part is regular pants, and they have stings attached, and I just wrapped them around. Β I just ordered another pair in black :), I think these are my favorite pants cause they look so funky πŸ™‚

    Did this workout today after a week off.
    First part: 11.5 rounds – felt like my legs were going to fall off towards the end. Used 8 lb weights will work up to using my 10 lbs.
    Second part: only 2.5 rounds. I feel like that sucked and would like to do better next time around. My core was tired so I was having a difficult time keeping the ball from rolling around everywhere and expended a lot of energy to keep steady lol
    Finished with the uncut 10 min cardio blast but didn’t keep score. I will next time.
    Loved the workouts!! Thanks Tati πŸ™‚ I would love to have more uncut short cardio routines – pretty please??? πŸ˜€ any in the works?

  • I’m starting to feel the sore…I completed this 4 hours ago. I really enjoy doing this type of routine.
    Warm up: 10 mins of light skipping; the Good Posture Challenge.
    Part 1. (8lbs DBS for low squats DB swing)
    I did 10 complete rounds.
    Part 2: Completed 2 rounds
    Cool down and stretching 10 mintues.
    No cardio for me, strangely I was pooped after this work out. I’ll do something later in the evening.

    THAT was the hardest and sweatiest 20 minutes of my life! 7 full rounds on part 1 up to the 3rd dumbbell swing, and 1 full round up to 5 side mill planks, but finished the rounds of course.
