Kiana Tom Best Legs and Butt Workout for Moms

If you find that your pre-kid workouts are no longer as effective, you're not seeing results, or if you don't feel as tight and toned as you used to, you need to Change up your workouts to shock the body into shape.  This is the perfect workout to help tighten and tone your legs and booty.

After kids, our bodies change so drastically.  Our pre-kid workouts are not as effective. We tend to focus more on family and less on ourselves.  However, we must take care of our health and put our needs first sometimes, right! Especially when being healthy and fit makes us a better version of ourselves. I know when I train, I feel more productive, happier, mentally and physically stronger.

The legs and butt are the largest muscle groups in the body, so this workout is a big calorie burner in a short amount of time.

Fit Moms LOVE feeling slightly sore the next day, so after your workout, let us know how you feel on our Fit Mom TV Facebook Page & Kiana's Main Facebook Page. Post your training photos on Fit Mom TV Instagram #fitmomtv or Kiana's Main Instagram #kianatom. Connecting and posting on social media is an effective way to motivate yourself and others!

Get Started:

  • Gear: Jump Rope, Weights, Quality Fitness Mat to protect your knees, joints and flooring: Hand weights or even liter or gallon water bottles will work. We like this "Home Gym Starter Kit" complete with a high quality fitness mat (black or pink) to create a designated workout space in your home and a pair of health club quality weights.
  • Time: 15 minutes
  • Where: your home, gym, beach or park

The Best Leg & Butt Workout

Intervals: 10 seconds rest / 50 seconds exercise.  Set your Interval Timer to 10 seconds and 50 seconds for 15 rounds. OR Do 15 repetitions of each exercise. I prefer using the Interval Timer because I can focus more on the exercise as opposed to keeping track of reps.

BOOTY JUMPS

  • Focus: butt, thighs, calves, endurance. This challenging cardio leg / butt exercise will blast major calories and strengthen the most important muscle in your body...your heart. We always start with the most challenging exercise first. Beginners: if you can only do 2-3 in 50 seconds that is okay, work your way up. 🙂
  • How To:
    • Starting position: stand with feet shoulder width, shoulders back and down, arms at your sides.
    • The move: exhale as you explode, jumping upward as high as you can, using your arms as momentum. Land softly on the balls of your feet. repeat.
    • Tip: Point your toes as you extend up, flexing your calf muscles too.

INFINITY PASSES:

  • Focus:  inner thighs, core and butt
  • How to:
    • Starting position: get in a wide athletic stance, hold a weight in one hand. Shoulders back and down, abs tight.
    • The move: squat down until your upper legs are almost parallel to the floor. Hold this position, called a low static squat. (ouch I know, but it works!) While holding this static squat, pass the weight under your thighs in an infinity pattern, going around each leg.
    • Tip: don't forget to breathe!

OFF BALANCE SQUATS:

  • Focus: Legs, butt, core.
  • How to:
    • Starting position: Hold a weight in your right hand at shoulder level. Stand with feet in wide athletic stance, shoulders back and down, core tight.
    • The move: Squat down, keeping your back straight. Squat down until your thighs are parallel to the floor. (Beginners will have a limited range of motion, if you can only squat a little, that's okay. Work your way to being able to squat down until your butt passes your knees.)
    • Tip: If your shoulders start to round forward or your hips start to tip under, do not go as low. Try to do it without weight or in a limited range of motion (aka don't try to squat as low) until your muscles get stronger.
