AM Puppy Runs + Glute Workout

Good afternoon friends! It's been a busy day around here so I thought I'd take a break and visit with you here on the blog. Last night I had the wonderful idea of waking up first thing a few mornings a week and taking the pups out for a morning run-- we get cardio in and they get to run off some energy, double whammy! Well of course when the alarm went off, going for a jog didn't sound quite as great as it did last night. I laid in bed for about 15 extra minutes negotiating with myself until I finally got up and threw some gym clothes on. 

Thankfully we were able to talk ourselves into going, so for now we are 1-0! This could have easily been  the classic tale of "oh let's just start tomorrow" but heck we have been trying to get ourselves to do more cardio for months now so its finally time to buckle down and get it done. I can say one thing for sure, the girls loved it! 

When we got back (okay, before we even left) we were both starving so I quickly whipped up the usual, eggs, turkey bacon, Oatmeal english muffin and a few strawberries which by the way are so ridiculously sweet and flavorful right now I'm obsessed. About and hour later we were back out the door to go to the gym, legs/glutes for me and chest and abs for B. 

Here's what my workout looked like: 
Squats 5 x 8-12 (less reps as weight went up) 
Heavy hip thrusters 4 x 10-12 
Leg extensions 4 x 10 
Bodyweight split squats 3 x 12 
Abductor machine 4 x 15 
Kickbacks (pictured above) 4 x 15 

And now the rest of the day is filled with finishing up online client programs, laundry, cleaning, and clients this afternoon and somewhere in there I'm food prepping... wish me luck! 


  1. I LOVE doing heavy hip thrusters!!! Just kinda awkward at first but now I don't care what people think. If you have time to stare your not working out hard enough. You are making some amazing gains in your booty girl congrats. WOndering if you wouldn't mind sharing what weight amounts your doing in your leg workouts thiese days? I just like to have a good aim as to what I should be doing to get those awesome results. If you don't feel comfortable sharing I totally understand. Thanks girl!!

  2. Yay! Someone else that posts their actual workouts! I always love to see what others are doing in the gym. Some people are so secretive like they invented exercise and don't want to give away their secrets! That workout looks like a good one and I'm sure your pups were excited to get up and get going in the morning. I need to do that too. My girls would love it.
