Another A$$ Thursday Complete!

So, if you are following my Facebook page, you know all about my A$$ Thursdays! For the last three months, I have dedicated every Thursday workout to strictly working my glutes. I am seeing some great results. I do plan to share some before and after pictures once I reach my “destination”. It has been a hard fight, as I get older and as gravity, fat, and cellulite try their hardest to win this battle over my hips, buttocks, and thighs, but I’m not giving up. LOL!

In today’s workout, I added a new technique I saw recently. Now this was new to me, but those of you in the bodybuilding world may already be familiar. I had no idea this technique was going to be so hard. I did five sets with increasing reps. My entire body was dripping sweat from this one exercise – and it was the first exercise of my entire routine. It was really a total body exercise.

Everyone has done kickbacks, at some point during their exercise routine, weighted or not weighted, as shown in the image below.

BUT, you really haven’t done kick backs until you’ve done it like this –

OK. I thought I was going to die after the warmup set

(with no weight)!


. . . but I didn’t quit, and added some weight. You see I have a goal, and I’m sticking with it. Now, I may not be able to walk, sit, or stand tomorrow, but in the end it will be worth it.

If you are serious about firming up the rear, then I challenge you to give these a try,

and let me know what you think!
