Quest For Booty Workout

Sep 19, 2012 by

Butt Workout


Hello My Lovie-Dovies!

Hope you are having a fabulous week and already started our new ” Round Booty Challenge “. Today’s workout is circuit training for the lower body, it’s going to be quite simple routine but it’s still gonna be very challenging. Β I always create the routines based on the inspiration and mood, and today I felt like doing something simple.

You will definitely beat my time, because I had to take longer breaks to cool down, our humidity today was pretty crazy and while working out I couldn’t breathe inn, even my ice-pack wasn’t working its usual magic.

Make sure to always warm-up before beginning to exercise, and practice your form, Proper Form is more important than speed.



Workout explanation:


All I was using in this routine is my 40 lbs bag, my new pink Gymboss timer ( my 2 other once broke πŸ™ ), 8 lbs medicine ball and a Pull-Up bar.

Set your timer as a stopwatch, complete 10 rounds of the following.


  • Weighted Diagonal Back Lunge & Knee Up – 12 reps ( Per Side )
  • Weighted Jump Lunge – 12 reps
  • Leg Lifts – 6 reps


My time for this workout was 29 minutes 37 seconds

After this I did the Round Booty Challege and Good Posture Challenge. Taa-Daaaa!!!


Have Fun Training!




PS – Thank you guys for recommending my site for review on Angry Trainer Fitness – ” Testing The Trainers: Tatianna & Loving Fit Β ” Thank you for all of your kindness and support.

    simple but effective πŸ™‚ Another nice routine. How about more recipes??

    • Yes, I need to do more, have you seen my new raw chocolate recipe? I only posted it on youtube though –

      • Evaleen

        I’ve been on a quest to find coconut butter– checked Whole Foods and two other health-food stores, but no luck thus far. πŸ™

        A clerk at one of those places commented that it must be getting popular, cause I was the second person that week to ask him about it. :p

        • I got mine at whole foods, I actually have a very funny story about how I discovered it. Before I’ve never knew about, this is what happened:

          I was looking for a new brand of coconut oil to try, then I see the one that says butter so I purchase it. Bring it home, and since the texture of it is like peanut butter, the natural separation of oil is at the top. For about a week I was using what I though was coconut oil, once I reached a spot where I used up all the coconut oil I bumped into the actual butter, and the texture was very thick, I still kept spreading it all over my body thinking, OMG what is this? This is the weirdest coconut oil ever, then something pushed me to try it and after I did I was like OMG this is delicious, how come I’ve never knew about it before.

          Then I placed it in the fridge where it really stiffened up, that’s how I got an idea to make chocolates from it :), I tried and loved it πŸ™‚

          At whole foods you can sometimes find it in the edible oil section ( not where the regular coconut oil is ), but it gets sold out very fast, I am always getting the last jar.

          • Evaleen

            Haha, great story!!! πŸ˜€ It’s funny how we can sometimes take a while to put 2 & 2 together lol, but very happy that you discovered a great treat! Am curious btw, do you prefer it without the oil mixed in?

            And thanks a lot for that tip! πŸ™‚ I usually ask a store clerk, but they’re not always sure either.

          • Yes, I always mix in the oil, because it makes the butter spreadable, if I don’t mix it it’s too thick. Coconut oil it self is super super healthy, I am taking a tablespoon every morning now.

        • tee_w

          this girl’s blog shows you how to make your own, it sounds easy but I haven’t tried it yet.

          • Evaleen

            Thanks for the link Tee. πŸ™‚ I do hope though that it won’t take 15min+ to blend, I’m paranoid that will burn out my processor motor lol.

  • Christian

    This is gone be my WO for tomorrow! Gone start the Round Booty Challenge first of Oct when i get back from my vacation!
    Have a nice afternoon dear!

    • YAY!

      Thank you Christian, have a nice afternoon as well!

  • Diana

    I love the simplicity of this workout, Tati! Saved it for tomorrow cos I just finished the upper body workout. I will also start the booty challenge later as I still have 1.5 weeks left from the Abs challenge. Wooo, I can hardly wait for tomorrow! πŸ™‚

    • πŸ™‚ have fun with it tomorrow πŸ™‚

  • Cant’t wait to try this one tomorrow! i’ve got a question Tatianna: I am approximately 25%-27% body fat percentage and already quite well trained abs, how much fat have I still to lose to see my abs slightly? 7%? more?
    Hugs πŸ˜€

    • It varies from person to person,

      Some people have can be 20% body fat and can see abs, and some can be 15% and still don’t see their abs.

      • Thank you so much for your fast response πŸ˜€ I just got a problem, I am at aboarding school ( I am at home during the weekends). that means I can’t eat a 100% clean, i really try my best but its nearly impossible :(. so I can’t lose much bodyfat and furthermore I am not natural thin πŸ™

        • Hey Marie,

          I can suggest you one thing for the weekends, but don’t go crazy with it, in the mornings you can do HIIT cardio on an empty stomach, or you can have 2 egg whites. Do sprints of exercises but nothing strength wise. Something like high knees and mountain climbers. Do 10-12 rounds of 30 sec and 10 sec off. This will really help you not to gain weight over the weekend.

          When we do at least 30 seconds sprints on an empty stomach, our growth hormone starts releasing and burning fat. Don’t eat an hour after.

          You can just do it one day out of your weekend.

  • BarbaraLoyoya

    Thank so much Tati for the new workout! Will be doing this one tomorrow morning :). Love you xxx

  • 1Ivana

    Hi there

    so I started the booty challenge yesterday and I feel it today….:)) I missed that feeling..I will do this on weekend, as my second lower body workout of he week…I like it a lot, simple but hard..

    kisses to you all

    • I know what you mean, I love the feeling of a sore butt!

  • Kate_CZ

    Hello Tatianna and all!

    ItΒ΄s 9pm here and IΒ΄m done. Literally.

    I have a new sandbag! Actually my first sandbag ever. My grandmother made it for me. It is super exclusive! It looks totally like the real one. She is so handy and kind! I put 16 salt bags (35LB) into it and it is heavy like hell! IΒ΄m not used to work with such a heavy weight. Maybe it was the reason why I was dying during todays workout…

    So I used the prettiest 16kg (35lb) sandbag, 4kg (8lb) ball and I mostly bent my knees during lifts…
    My weighted diagonal lunges were very slow motioned. The sandbag was nailing me into the ground.

    Respect, Tatianna, for using your 40lb bag all the time!

    • Kate_CZ

      IsnΒ΄t my grandmother simply the best ;o?

      • YES your grandmother is the best! That is the most amazing homemade gift ever!

      • Diana

        Hehe, your grandma is a genius! πŸ™‚ Your sandbag looks just like the “original”! πŸ™‚

      • OMG what a cool gift! What a great grandma!

      • Evaleen

        Indeed, best gift evar! Some great handy-work πŸ™‚ and I love that you’re “cradling” it for the photo lol, sweet.

      • Gerri Lee Schafer

        nice bag……enjoy it every chance you get…lol

      • tee_w

        It’s wonderful! and your grandmother is the bomb!

      • 1Ivana

        It is not LIKE the original…IT IS ORIGINAL, original granny design…nobody else has it,so it is original…all others are the same…:)))
        I like it very much…mine is also home made…:))

      • That’s so cool! Grandmas rock man! I miss mine like a LUNG! Though I know she’s always with me. Give your grams a little extra Grandma-love from a stranger! πŸ™‚

      • Nice bag. Your gramdma might have a side business if she wants one πŸ™‚

      • Kate_CZ

        Thank you all. I will tell my grandma how many people (besides me) think she is awesome πŸ™‚

  • Chrissy

    Tati, I am wondering, how tall are you? At first I thought you were quite tall like me (I’m 5’10) but now I’m not so sure…

    • I am 5 fit 7in,

      I wish aI was 5 10 though πŸ™‚

  • Tough cookie

    Hey Tatianna,
    27:37 for me today!

  • You’re definitely not alone,

    It’s OK to take longer breaks if you need to, we always have to listen to our own bodies.

  • Hi Tati, very nice workout and you have GREAT FORM as usual. You always look so focused and professional when you are working out! You are one of my favorite role models of “no-nonsense trainers”.
    The third exercise is a tough one but I’m working on it (advanced version).

    • Thank you so much Vanessa πŸ™‚

      I always try to stay focused during my workouts, especially so I don’t lose my form, it did take a lot of practice though.

  • Alycat

    Hi Tatianna!

    I’ve just started following your workouts and they are great. I did have a question for you, more about working out in general. I am a poor college student, and at the moment don’t have any of my own equipment. I know of some modifications for no equipment (like chairs as a dip station), but I also know that adding weights and instability to workouts gives better results. My fitness goals are not so much aesthetics, but also to help me become a better athlete (I play college ultimate frisbee, which is kind of like a combination of american football, soccer, and basketball, played with a frisbee instead of a ball).Anyway, I am thinking of looking into picking up some equipment and was wondering if you had any suggestions of where to start. Like what are the two, three or four pieces of exercise equipment you feel are essential and would save if your training room burned down? I’m also not sure how to deal with what weights I would want. My lower body is much stronger than my upper body (which I suppose is common) but also my upper body strength is fairly uneven (like I can generally bicep curl with 15 or 20lbs and get good reps with good form, but have to knock it down to 8lb or 10lbs for things like arm raises). Any suggestions on how to circumvent that issue without having several sets of dumbbells around?

    • Hi Alycat,

      Before investing into equipment I suggest you check out this post I wrote a while ago –

      If you are on a budget, I suggest to get a pull-up bar, it’s only 28 dollars on ebay, a sandbag, jump rope, medicine ball and an equalizer you can make your self, cause they are quite expensive. Also if you live in US I suggest you check out Ross for some equipment like a pull-up bar, jump rope, it’s quite un expensive there.

      As far as weights, I suggest you getting some adjustable from Walmart ( I got a pair from there that go up to 20 lbs each, and you can adjust them, they were only 20 dollars ).

      Our biceps are always stronger than our shoulders, mine are as well, the only way you can strengthen them is to always work at it.

  • Evaleen

    Haha, LOVE the name of this one. :p I might do it tomorrow instead of an older routine I had planned… oh well, will see then what I’m in the mood for. πŸ˜€

    • It’s from the ps3 game which is called Quest For Booty πŸ™‚

      • Evaleen

        Oh lol, I hadn’t heard of it. :p Great workout title either way!

        And I did end up doing this one earlier, with a 30lb bag and 10lb dumbbell. Also tried to lift as high/straight as I could without touching the floor, for the leg lifts. As for my time… um, maybe I can just admit that I dropped all weight to finish the last two rounds? :p Unless some of you guys need a laugh, then I’ll suck it up and post lol.

  • This will be my Friday’s workout. I did another lower body workout plus the Booty and Back challenges. I came across a new fat loss exercise One-Arm Kettlebell Swing Step -Up by Nick Nilsson. Thank you so much for sharing your great knowledge with us!

    • Thank you for your support Iris πŸ™‚

  • Which leggings are you talking about Dani? I can try looking them for you, just let me know which one’s you like and I will find them πŸ™‚

  • saretta

    This looks awesome, can’t wait to try it! Thanks for such great workouts!

  • Thanks for the new workout Tati! Off to the gym to give it my all. I also just read your Angry Trainer review and am so happy to see you getting the recognition and accolades you deserve. I was also super surprised to see how many others are like me, new converts from ‘other’ sites, and loving your workouts. It was wonderful to see how many people commented on your personal touch and how much it means to them. I know I’ve said it before, but KUDOs girl!
    OK, now off to the gym I go. Will post my score when I return. Wish me luck! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you so much for your support girlie,

      I am very very thankful to all of you guys, I feel very touched and humbled by how amazing you guys are to me, it’s such a blessing in my life. I want to be my best for all of you, Hugs πŸ™‚

      Have fun at the gym!

      • Thanks Tati – you’re very deserving of the support and I’m happy to give it.

        I am not particularly proud of my time, but I am proud of my effort today, the puddle of sweat I left at my feet and the perfect form I was aiming for through the whole thing (I could hear your voice in my head!).

        t took me 36:36 to finish this with 30lb barbell instead of the bag (which I love by the way and will be asking Santa for) an 8 lb medicine ball and knee raises (not strong enough yet for straight legs).

        I did learn the hard way today of the importance of pre-workout nutrition. I missed my mid-morning snack and got very light-headed and dizzy during the workout. Had to take lots of breaks to catch my breath. I know better, but just got busy and forgot. The 82% humidity here today probably didn’t help either!

        Thanks for another killer workout girlfriend – you rock!

        • PS – I meant to tell you, your makeup looks really pretty in this video. πŸ™‚

        • KaviinKrumlov

          Hi Dheana, don’t know if you’ll remember me from Bodyrock but wanted to say hi and that I got light headed too! I’m 7mos postpartum and breastfeeding and HAVE to get my pre-workout nutrition (as you put it) sorted. I often workout before dinner when my partner gets home from work. Which means I’ve been with the kids and doing whatever needs to be done around her until that point. It’s hard to make it all work and have the energy for a workout. I’m just not organized enough. It’ll get better. πŸ™‚ I hope you’re well and it’s nice to see all the familiar names/avatars around here.
          Take care.

          • Hi Kaviin! It is nice to see some familiar names! And congratulations on the new addition to your family.
            You know, I’ve found my easiest and favourite pre-workout meal is a green smoothie. I put all sort of super-foods in it, blend it in the morning and take it with me. I drink it about 1 1/2 hours before my noon workout and it gives me good energy (when I don’t forget!) It does take some time to put pull everything out of the fridge and blend it up, but no time at all to drink. Plus, being blended, it’s easy for your body to absorb all that good nutrition. Might work for you too, since it sounds like you’ve got your hands full all day!
            Thanks for saying hi!

          • KaviinKrumlov

            I’ll give it a try! I usually have it after my workout but before is a great idea. And my five year old has just started having green smoothie pops. Which is unbelievable lol. But that’s another post on another blog. Take care, Kavita

  • Tara

    Tita, I love your hair braided, look so cute. And Hanging leg lift really hard, I used to just straight my legs 90 degrees to my belly, not all way up like you did. Thanks!

  • ltwin

    This workout took me 26:34 minutes.. and it was also a mind thing going through all 10 rounds.. I can feel my booty πŸ˜‰ at it feels so great! Thank YOU
    also did the first day of the booty-challenge πŸ˜‰

    • Great time Itwin! Wow!

      • ltwin

        Thank you Dheana πŸ˜‰

    • OMG look who’s back!!! YAY!!! WELCOME BACK!


  • annebelwind

    Wow.. You really are a grazy girl! I had to change it up, because I only have free weights and in a bag they really hurt my shoulders.. So did 12 one leg squats and knee ups on a chair.. this was really hard.. i was allready toast after 5 rounds.. shaky legs and all.. But went on for the full 10.. took me 41 minutes.. So really long.. Also did the 60 bridges up front and the good posture challenge… and offcourse the warm up.. So am done for today.. can not do any extra’s.. Thanks for this one.. πŸ˜€ <3

    • Did you do the on leg bridges and the superman hold after?

  • I’m looking forward to doing this when I’m back in Alberta Monday.

    • Thank you so much Lvette :), It’s all because of you guys, I couldn’t of done it without all of you!

  • You are so sweet, thank you)))

    I was having a hard time in this workout, it was so humid OMG

  • Hey girl,

    If you have a good door in your house you can use it as a pull-up bar πŸ™‚

  • Did this tonight. I was in the mood for a really long burner, and was going to do Bubble Butt because it looked hard, but also possibly very long, and we had Back to School Night tonight (ta da!) so I did this one because it was a close second but looked like it wouldn’t possibly take an hour, but more like half that, which it did! I finished in a nice 26:13. I used my 35lb sandbag and 10lb medicine ball. I may have flirted with the idea of doing cardio afterwards, but I didn’t really need it because this workout got me breathing pretty heavy. I liked that it kept everything short–I’ve been doing a lot of the one round epic rep workouts, which I like a lot, but it was a nice change to be able to do one round all the way through. Loved the leg lifts, too! Those are more of a full body exercise, which makes it difficult mentally to do, but I was able to mostly do all 6 in a row, straight legs to the top, so YAY EVIL ABS CHALLENGE!

    Round Booty Challenge after. I’ll do the Posture Challenge another time because I can only handle one challenge at a time. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for all your awesomeness yet again! πŸ™‚

    • Hey girl,

      I was just thinking about you tonight :), and here you are – energy travels!

  • Naomi

    My booty just died..! I did this workout combined with the Booty Challenge. My time was 24:28; but instead of hanging leg raises I had to do the leg raises with my arms on the arm rests. The whole ordeal was exhausting, I had to really push myself through the 10 rounds. The finishing one leg bridges with the 10 sec hold made my booty shake like crazy and the superman hold was a painful finisher. I suspect this booty challenge is gonna work magic! πŸ™‚ Thanks for a great workout Tati!

    • Wow, you were fast!

      Yep, this little challenge is gonna really tighten up and round up the booty, the superman holds are the favorite exercise that acrobats and dancers do a lot, that’s why their butts are always so perfect.

  • Good evening darling!!!!

    Now you can enjoy your weekend πŸ™‚

  • KaviinKrumlov

    Oooooh I don’t want to post this but I’m going to be brave! Lol. I could only do 5 rounds plus the the first part and two rounds of part two of the challenge. πŸ™ I felt light-headed and just didn’t have the energy to do it. I felt like I’d pushed past my limit and my form was starting to suffer. I used my homemade 10kg sandbag and 2x2kg hand weights and two chairs for the pull ups. I know this is going to sound like a cop out but we live in a very old house and the door frames can’t hold a pull up bar. It’s a fix’er-upper and maybe one day I’ll have a workout space. πŸ™‚

    I’m trying to get my workouts in every week but sometimes I just don’t have it in me. Right now I’m working out 3 times a week. I really really respect/admire the other moms who are organized and determined enough to stick to their workout schedule. My youngest is 7months old and I’m on track with getting back to pre-pregnancy shape/size. I think the hardest thing is eating clean and eating to fuel my workouts. Most of my day and even my nights are not about me at this point.

    Anyway all of that said I’m here. I’m showing up. I’m doing my best and I’m seeing results. Some workouts are awesome and some like this one left me somewhat defeated. I’ll just have to make myself a promise to kick my butt with again soon.

    Oh and Tatianna or anyone else. I have a problematic lower back – in fact a tailbone injury that occurred delivering my first daughter. Without going into to much detail about it all I’ll say is that the one legged bridges don’t work for me. Not that many of them anyway. Any thoughts on an alternate?

    I’m loving the focus on form. It’s really liberating to not worry about the timer but to focus on your body.

    • Hey there πŸ™‚

      Don’t worry about only doing 5 rounds, the important thing here is that you listened to your body, and that’s what I always encourage everyone do. You will get back to these workouts later and kick their butts!

      I recommend you doing bridges with both feet on the chair or ball, listen to your body and make sure there is no pain anywhere.

      • KaviinKrumlov

        Thanks Tatianna!

        you’re right! (of course :-)) I did need to listen to my body. I am breastfeeding and came down with a mild case of mastitis (a day or two after I posted) which can be an indicator of stress and there’s even some anecdotal connection between intense workouts and mastitis. So anyway where I’m going with this is that I’m giving myself some time to chill out and not worry so much about my fitness goals. I’m going to keep working out just not as hard. Obviously my body is telling me to slow down and re-evaluate. And the modification made a huge difference. Why didn’t I think of that? Lol. Thanks so much.

    • Shout it from the rooftops girl!!!! I’m impressed, 5 rounds of this insanity is pretty darn good and your youngest is 7 months old!!!! Yah I’m still impressed. All us moms know how hard it is and I think you are ahead of the game and well on your way. Way to go, I say.
      Never feel like you were defeated. Like you said, you showed up and you did something. That sounds like a WIN to me. I’m just sayin’ πŸ™‚
      Pat yourself on the back and keep up the good work.
      From a fellow mom.

      • KaviinKrumlov

        Hi Violet!!! I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to respond but you’re awesome! Thanks for the support. And you know what? Sometimes we’ve just gotta listen to our bodies right? Hopefully this isn’t TMI but I came down with a bout of mastitis – I’m still nursing. I think I was feeling low energy because of it. I’m still not out of the woods so I’m taking it easy. Today I used the intuitive training approach and I felt great.

        It was really sweet of you to take the time to write such a positive response. This mama really needed to hear it.


        • Hey Kavita, no worries…. sorry to hear about the mastitis…. Nursing is such a wonderful thing but can be so difficult sometimes and it takes the good out of you on a good day let alone days when a problem comes up. So happy to hear your workout went well yesterday and feeling good. I did the Chic Chick workout today and found it a struggle, not one of my better days but I did it and I pushed myself, so it’s all good πŸ™‚ How did you like the Intuitive Training Approach?

          Here’s to Keepin’ It Positive πŸ™‚


  • My workout for today: 8 minutes warm up on the treadmill, Pool party workout in 23 minutes and I ended up with Perfect abs after glow workout. Both workouts are excellent.
    Thank you so much!

    • Thank you for sharing Iris ( I love your name πŸ™‚ )

  • Hi Tatianna,
    Hope you had an outstanding day.
    Well, I did this workout yesterday along with the good posture challenge and the booty challenge. All I have to say is CRAZY!!!!!! lol My ass is killing me πŸ™‚ but that’s a good thing right!!! I had gotten back on the fitness quest about a year ago and really quite happy with the results I have received. But I was getting very frustrated that my rear view just didn’t get the memo yet. When I gain weight that is where I tend to carry it all, fun right πŸ™ I am down 30lbs and the booty has changed it’s shape but I wanted more and guess what?!?!?! You gave that to me yesterday. I asked for it, I received it, now it’s just a matter of waiting to see if the booty gets the message πŸ™‚ BTW during that workout all I could think about was getting the strain out of my face and concentrating on the movement πŸ™‚ Then I found myself talking to myself, saying “it doesn’t matter how long it takes you to do it as long as you finish it with PROPER FORM πŸ™‚ ” And that’s exactly what I did. I also used a 40 lb sandbag but I will say it took a whole lot longer to get through than most of your amazing followers. It took me an outstanding 41 minutes.
    I am truly happy to have found you. You are a wealth of great information. Thank you once again.

    • Hi Violet,

      Wow, congrats on the 30 lbs down!!! Very inspiring when I hear people losing that much weight, cause I know it’s challenging to do.

      I am glad you worked on your form, that is always number 1, time is secondary. Once we learn to feel proper form without even looking in the mirror then we can start focusing more on time, but form is always first.

      Have a wonderful weekend!

  • I did it today. Warm up in the treadmill for 8 minutes, I did this one with my 10 pounds medicine ball. I followed with ZWOW#35. I was so wet and sweaty after these two brutal workouts.
    Many blessings for you!

    • I was really tired after this routine, you are very strong, I can’t believe you did another workout after!

  • 1Ivana

    Hi there…

    so I did this today, but only half way through, I felt pain in my lower back (Familiar, not good pain), so I did only 5 round, but with proper form and all..and i did my second booty challenge for the week so…better something than nothing..
    I am still building my form from summer break, slowly but surely…I don’t want to force myself to an injury..

    have a great weekend

    kisses to you all

    • Hey Ivana,

      I suggest you place ice on your back, I hope it’s not inflamed.

      • 1Ivana

        Thank you…but it is is an old known pain..I had problems around new year (old BR friends know), it was a nerve, I just felt it and I knew I have to stop, if I hadn’t it will ga bad…but as I know the problem I know when to stop…and this summer I had a really bad bed for 3 months and the pain comes and go in intervals…today I don’t feel it..I will go for a nice long walk and maybe an upper body workout…
        thank you for caring

  • Jos

    Just did this today and took me 34:55 with 35lbs sandbag and 8lb dumbbell. Prior this I did 500 skips, 3 rounds of butt builder circuit and 1 round of sharper Abs challenge! I got a little dizzy in the middle of the round and almost wanted to just give up but I didn’t! Proud that I finished this workout strong and in proper forms!

    • Wow Jos, you did some good workout today πŸ™‚

      I only did something small for my upper body, my schedule this week was a little off

      • Jos

        You always workout a lot so once in a while it’s good to step back a bit. Our SoCal weather hasn’t been great hot and humid!

  • When I first watched this workout I thought “not too bad”. After the first round and realizing I had 9 more to go, I knew I was in trouble! I used 25 lbs and did knee raises at the end. I finished with 33:08 then added the booty challenge. My buns are going to be SORE tomorrow, oh but what a good feeling that will be πŸ™‚

    • It always looks easy doesn’t it πŸ™‚

  • Thank you so much for your support Courtney πŸ™‚

    I am very lucky to have all of you guys!!! It is definitely about the proper form as number one and different styles of training, there is a lot more to fitness than just short workouts, we have to get fit while preventing injury as well, and good form is one of those preventions.

  • Pfffffff I did this one on friday πŸ™‚
    I only did 8 rounds.
    Round 7 and 8 only 10 reps of the lunges and no weight in the jump lunges,
    I was losing form I decided to stop, losing balance and taking way too much time.
    Maybe next time I will finish it.

    It is sunday, and my butt still hurts so much, when I walk, when I get up, when I sit, etc…


    • Hey It’s better 8 in good form than 10 in OK form, so you did great girl!

  • eliza

    this one felt awesome! i have a 15lb bag…how in the world did you do this with 40lbs???? simple but hit all the muscles in hip/but/thighs

    • I’m used to the weight already, I think it’s time to upgrade it soon. For me it feels pretty good with the 40lbs.

      • eliza

        you rock!

  • Katerina Gjorgievska

    I can’t feel my legs today! This is the hardest workout I have ever done, because I used 2 kg more then usual and I did way more hanging leg raises that I am used to. I was also not in the mood to workout and I really feel like I have climbed the highest mountain by just finishing the workout and the challenge right after. I am not posting my time because it scary :))))) Thank you Tati, this workout really tested my strength and nerves πŸ˜‰

    • The easy looking one’s are always the hardest πŸ™‚

  • I finally did this.
    Warm up: 5mins
    Good Posture Challenge: 3mins. I’ve been very good at attemping to keep my core thigh through out the day.
    Round Booty Challenge: 60 reps bridges, my butt was feeling this.
    I was short on time so I completed 5 rounds in 16:33, followed by 3 rounds of the second part of round booty challenge.
    I finished with 10 minutes of stretching.

    • Nice one Lvette!!! I just finished my workouts as well, and the booty challenge, I am saving the posture challenge till later.

  • tee_w

    hi guys!
    did this workout yesterday. 100 rep bridges before, then into this sucker! started with my 20.5lb ball for the skater type lunge, that lasted for two rounds! lol then I dropped to a 10lb medicine ball. in my stubborness I only did 10 reps each for those. I used a 8lb medicine ball for the next exercise but I can’t jump those, so just back lunges, and I did do 12 of those! lol my leg lifts were more like knees to elbows – I actually got close to touching my elbows! within inches! managed to do 7 rounds before I died! took 21min 4 seconds afterwards I managed 1 round of booty challenge.
    hmmm today I’m finding my booty and quads just a tad bit sore!

    • Gerri Lee Schafer

      hahahaha Tee….you didn’t die

      • tee_w

        are you sure?

    • OMG 100 bridges, you go girl!

      Ohh by the way, in the new workout video that I am exporting right now, I added a little piece of video for a variation on bridges and superman holds, so it won’t hurt the quads too much.

      • tee_w

        aren’t we supposed to be doing 100 bridges, damn I’m not doing this challenge wrong am I?

        I don’t have much problem with the quads on bridges, but my hamstrings cramp up a bit even when I move farther away, but its better. I like the superman holds especially when I bring my arms back like I was doing a lat pulldown and squeeze the shoulderblades together!

        PS I think the booty challenge actually takes longer than my workout! lol
        will watch for the vid!

        • Hey Tee

          1st week it was 60, second week it’s 80, 3rd week 100, fourth week 120 πŸ™‚

          • tee_w

            ha ha oh good, doing it right!

  • Gerri Lee Schafer

    I’m going to tackle this one tomorrow morning Tati…slightly modified for the shoulder

    • tee_w

      shoulder still bugging you?

      I was sore in the shoulders from zuzana’s zwow and the upper body of tatiannas (magnetic?)I did two days in a row, duh and not really in a nice way, felt like the bones were hurting, I think its where your traps tie in to your shoulders. I found doing the leg lifts hanging from the bar really killing me there as well. I’m supposed to be doing upper body tomorrow but I have to find one not to taxing on the shoulders! I can’t do lower as my butt and quads and hammy’s are sore from this one!:)

    • Sometimes the shoulder can take a while to heal, have you been applying tiger balm on it?

      • Gerri Lee Schafer

        saw the specialist yesterday, now I’m on the waiting list for a MRI…..hurry up and wait….thinks it’s rotator cuff….SAID I could do stuff that didn’t make it hurt…nothing about stuff that made it ache…lol…I’m still being careful, not to worry…been exercising a LONG time and know my body pretty well…it’s beyond tiger balm, but thanks, not a muscle thing….looking into some recovery exercises to try out…our group has been very helpful, as always

  • The idea of being positive can be off putting to some people, mostly when it’s viewed in a bubbly la la way. A positive attitude towards life/world does not mean a person is naΓ―ve to the very serious and
    negative aspect of life. Yes, there is unspeakable suffering in the world, which cannot be erased even if viewed through rose coloured glasses (sometime bad is just plain bad.) The question becomes how to deal with the so-called β€œbad” within and around us.

    For me, positive thinking does not mean that there are no negative thoughts. It’s more about how to handle the negatives. Getting rid of negative feeling is not the main goal, the concern for me is the afterwards. By having a positive psychology I’m more able to function and thrive amidst the chaos. I can cry about the state of things/world but I’m not paralyzed by my crying or feel hopeless. Negative thoughts for me are not the problem, but how I behave (my reactions) to those thoughts is what matters. In a strange way, having negative thoughts and self-talk once in a while tells me I’m a functioning human being who is dealing with β€œbeing human”.

    Now, the question is how to achieve a state of positive psychology. Personally, just as I exercise for physical health, I train my mind daily for emotional and mental health. Practice, practice!! And if need be, fake it until you’ve achieve it.

    • Woops! I thought this was moved to the right post. I was trying to delete it from this post, but I guess I was only able to delete my name. It means more people get to read it.:)

  • Gerri Lee Schafer

    All done, and good morning all. I only used 32.5 lbs in my sand bag today, legs are a bit burnt from running 100 sets of stairs yesterday. My medicine ball is 10 lbs, and I just held it to my chest. Didn’t want to hang for the leg raises, so used my dip station and did 6 straight leg,and 6 knee raises each round instead. Really tried to touch the knee down in each back lunge, can tell you were targeting the glutes and inner thighs on this one Tati. My time was 24:32 I also did day 2 of week 2 of the booty challenge….I had a muscle tick in the my right butt cheek on the first booty hold …lol….my leg was jerking around, but I held it for the full 40 seconds. Finished off with 10 minutes light cardio 1:00/1:00 high knee jog/jumping jacks

    thanks for a great wo

  • Zivenaberry

    I am feeling better after being sick for quite some time. I figured I’d do this workout without any weight at all to get back in the swing of things. I’m going to do 12reps of reverse crunches instead of leg lifts as well. Going to do some back lifts but not the booty challenge today. I only got one day in before I got sick, so I’m going to scrap that day and start over when I’m feeling 100%.

  • yboog

    WOW, What a great workout! THANK YOU!
    I love long Saturdays! It is the only day I can sleep in, and today I slept til 10:30! I was super energized and had NO coffee!

    before Round and Firm Booty warm up
    Quest for Booty: 28:04 (no jumping, 20lb bag for the diagonals, 8lb ball for the lunges)
    after Round and Firm Booty
    100 invitations (lay on back and open and close legs with toes pointing straight up)

    I needed to work my upper body too cause I missed my Thur. w/o and Fitness Muse was on my agenda before the new upper body posted so I stuck to my plan: 19: 21.
    It took me 3 min longer than last time but I went heavier on the rows.

    12 min hulah oop cool down
    I had a nice 1hr work out followed by a short 15 min yoga.
    Tonight I will skip the partying and cuddle with my 6ounces of white wine and some netflix.

  • KirryKaatje

    I’ve done only 4 rounds in this workout. I did those in 18 min. I don’t know what was up, but I was really tired after 4 rounds and my form started to suffer. I was panting and sweating.. pfft. So I decided to stop there and do 2 sets of 15 bridges per side, 30 leg lifting thingies on my belly, and 20 Crowns on the balance ball. Then I was done. Maybe I needed more rest or my pms is bothering me, since that always gets me quite tired. Ah well, better luck next time. πŸ˜€

    • Hey Kirry,

      Don’t worry, if you felt like your form was suffering it’s ok to stop. Have you tried wild yam cream for PMS? When I use it I never get PMS or cramps of any kind, mood swings seem to be gone as well.

      • KirryKaatje

        Wild yam cream. I googled it and it sounds very interesting. Thanks for that tip! πŸ˜€

  • Skippie22

    Whoooooooo! Wee!
    I’m behind, so I’m still on the Abs Challenge instead of the Booty Challenge…:-/ which means I began with 3 Rounds of 1 min. Plank-Straight-Reptiles and 10 Hanging Side-to-Side Straight Legs (since Hanging Toe Touches were part of the workout itself!).
    Used 40 lbs. sandbag, 8 lbs. medicine ball, and managed to touch the door frame on the Leg Lifts for the first 6 or 7 rounds (I can’t remember…after that they were more than 90ΒΊ, but not touching the door frame).
    It took me 21:43
    Goodness me…well, it said “Lower Body” workout, but all I could feel were my shoulders from “Crazy Kill Yourself” (or whatever it was called…”Magnetic” something I think?? ;o) haha) two days ago.
    I’m feeling a little “beast-like”, and just trusting that the split routines and rest that Tati advises will make me smaller and *not* larger (like how I looked when I did P90X!). I want to be more fit…but not bigger! πŸ™ (Do you think it’s just the initial “muscle bulge” from suddenly doing “Tati” workouts after kinda coasting through Z workouts for so long?).
    I’m sticking with it for at least 3-4 weeks though! “Hard” is fun and engaging for my brain. (And I really love all of you here! Lovely!). ~~Cheers~~

    • Gerri Lee Schafer

      lol….think a lot of coasted through some of the z stuff…Tati puts together some real nice WO routines…

  • MariaBjΓΈrgJepsen

    2nd attempt on this bad boy after my 5-week break from strenght & cardio training. I only had my 5 kilo ball on hand, but I still enjoyed feeling my muscles working again πŸ™‚ I can’t jump where I live (too bad!!!) so I did forward lunges w. twist holding my ball, instead of jump lunges. I did the leg lifts from my dip station. It took me = 17:50 minutes. I added more abs plus the posture and booty challenge (week 2/3) w. 100 bridges. Thanks Tati πŸ™‚

    Enjoy your weekend!!!Much love, Maria

  • wolfblood

    Congrats on the review once more πŸ˜‰ Yet I cannot think of anything else he could have written.
    Performed my quest for booty this morning. “3 exercises oh how simple today” ehm well during Round 2 I was like “Ok you are going to make it somehow up to 5… hopefully”. Surprisingly I did finish all 10 rounds after all πŸ™‚ (Still no pull up bar of course just two tables and doing leg lifts on them ) in 30 minutes 14 seconds (always had to run up some stairs to get to my “dip station”)+ did the Booty challenge. I admitted to myself good posture challenge would be a good idea for my back too and will try to follow through with it more consequently. Afterwards I went for a 20 minute walk/run outside as it is one great autumn day here! Brutally cold, clear sky, a thick layer of hoarfrost everywhere.. I love this time of year even it its always a little sad when summer ends.
    Hope you all have such a great autumn day too πŸ™‚

  • sus

    I also did this one last month and here is my time. I only did 5 rounds. 12 min 46 sec. I can remember I felt like I was going to die on this one. Lol

  • AAAHHHH!!!!!!!!!! I did this tonight, and there’s a bit of a story behind it…that is, last Wed my knee was freaking me out because it was super misaligned and popping all over the place, and then I got a stomach bug on Thursday, which I’m still feeling the effects of today. So, I was out of commission for a week for both things (I got to kill two birds with one stone!). Luckily, my knee is really okay, though I do need to keep on track with doing exercises to keep it aligned–I think I know what made it this way, so I’ll just be careful to not do that. And as for being sick, I still felt a little under the weather today but only after I ate, so I thought I’d give this one a try because it doesn’t put the knee under too much stress for too long at a time.

    So anyway, this one only for me tonight–it was harder than usual, but not unreasonable, and I didn’t really do it for time. 30:44 tonight. Also, as I mentioned on FB, the SF Giants won the World Series while I was finishing up this workout, so there were plenty of pauses from THAT as well. But a wonderful, wonderful workout, and I FEEL SOOOO MUCH BETTER! It is so hard to be out sick. Even being injured, sometimes you can work around the injury and modify, but when you’re sick, it’s a no go.

    Looking forward to Monday Mingle and catching up with your new workouts! <3

    • Glad to hear you’re feeling a bit better. For a sick gal your time is great. Have you tried wrapping your knees when you work out?

  • Mary Lou

    35:17 with a 20lb bag and 8 lb ball. I can feel my butt, especially since I could still feel it from Heart Shaped Booty (3 days ago) when I started. I kept form and did not rush, but I can only get my legs up to chest level on the leg lifts. Practice, practice and more practice!

  • Mary Lou

    Yay! I did this back on 11/7 with 20 lbs, today I did it with 30 lbs and even had a telephone interruption and an 11-year-old interruption but still took 1:30 off my time! It was probably closer to a 3 minute shave… πŸ™‚

  • oberlee

    I love this workout…it’s a really, really good workout, but it’s really good for days when you’re not feeling maybe as motivated or adventurous. It’s not easy by any means, but it’s very manageable. It’s also very high on cardio, and because you never get to failure it has a nice flow to it. πŸ™‚ I am doing this the third time, and while I need to clamp down on this goal, I would like to concentrate on my butt, so I added 15 kettlebell swings in each round. My sandbag is 35lb, my kb is 35lb and my medicine ball is 10lbs. I originally aimed for 8 rounds, but just decided to do 10 for the heck of it instead of feeling the need for add-ons. Took me 28:31 for 8 rounds and 36:28 for 10…I obviously took many more breaks as time went on…sweaty!

    Thanks as always, Tatianna!!!

  • steffi_dk

    This was intense! Will be in pain tomorrow

  • Carmen Parara

    What an amazing workout! I definitely worked on form and performed the movements slow enough to feel my muscles working and of course the burning on my obliques, hamstring and gluteus maximus.
    I do not have a sand bag, however, I used a 15lb set of dumbbells for the diagonal lunge. I also used my ankle weights for this workout; I was not going to lose time by taking them on and off in between exercises, though. The weighted jump lunge has never being easy for me as it seems like I am very uncoordinated for that particular exercise. Holding the 8lb medicine ball and having the ankle weights seems to stabilize my body a little better than just holding the medicine ball as I have done in the past. Note to myself: work on jump lunges. I did more of knee raises than leg lifts for the last exercise.
    My time was 32:25:68.
    I finished with 100 high squat pulses to activate my gluteus medius, spent 5:44:82 doing weighted jumps on the trampoline my daughter got for Christmas. I did 200 jumps with a 25lb kettle bell, 200 jumps with 15lb dumbbell then 30 heel up squats with 25lb dumbbell.
    I stretched/relaxed with yoga before making a spinach, banana, hemp protein and seeds, maca, spirulina smoothie to nourish my body. Love being fit!
