Glutes and Abs Workout


Today’s workout routine was very short, but the intensity made up for little time. The whole workout is about 15 minutes long. These two exercises I did are at the top of my list for shaping butt, thighs, legs and abs. I am actually going to do this routine as a 6 week challenge, twice a week for 6 weeks. I have a name for these two exercises I call them body transformation combo.
Before you go on a whole I can’t do this thing, I will stop you right there, because I have beginners variations at the bottom of the post. If you want to transform your glutes, thighs, legs and abs then this workout routine is for you :). If you think it’s too hard to do, then you don’t want to change anything, so stay in your comfort zone ;).

Any exercise can be modified and you will be amazed at the speed our bodies adopt. The reason I know this, because I use have the weakest upper body, I couldn’t even hold on to a pull-up bar for a second, nor could I lift my legs up.

When I started to build my pull-up and leg lift strength I pushed literally through tears, but I still pushed, and it was hard I’m not gonna lie. But you have to remember nothing great comes easy, it took me about a month to be able to do 5 pull-ups and in two month’s I was able to do 10. For leg lifts it took me about a week of hard work of trying. So just because something looks hard, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give it a try. My mom sometimes watches me do pull-ups and she is shocked, she says ” I can’t believe you are able to do that, you always had such weak upper body”, you know what I tell her? HAD – is the key word ;).

Modifications and explanation for this workout is after the video.

Workout Explanation


This workout is consisted of two parts. First part is Interval Training. Second part is free style jump rope skipping. I was using two chairs for the leg lifts.

Set your timer Gymboss Max for two intervals 15 seconds and 1 minute, for the total of 9 rounds. You will go through this routine 3 times. Fifteen seconds interval is your break, and 1 minute interval is your maximum effort.


Part one

The exercises

  • 1. One leg squat – left leg
  • 2. One leg squat – right leg
I did this exercise slow, I feel my muscles working much better when I do it slowly.  You also want to be careful with you knees.  Make sure you warm up your body really well before doing this exercise.
  • 3. Split leg lifts & dips
Notes:  This exercise is definitely king next to planks when it comes to abs.  This exercise is amazing, because it also develops your core strength, which is important for the back support.  My only down side with this exercise is you will look funny doing it, but who cares cause your abs will look sharp ;).

Part two

Set your timer Gymboss Max for one interval of 4 minutes. This is a free style jump rope skipping, it is just a moderate pace card.


Beginners modifications

One Leg Squat can be modified by holding on to a chair, and only doing half one leg squats, like this:

Split Leg Lists & dips

You can modify this exercise by lifting only your knees, like this:

My scores for this workout

One leg squat – left leg – 11, 9, 10

One leg squat – right leg – 9, 10, 9

Split leg lifts – 10, 9, 10

For the part two, I didn’t really count how many skips I’ve done, because it was free style :).
