Yoga Booty Workout
This yoga booty workout incorporates classic yoga poses with dynamic booty-toning exercises for a fun, challenging beachside workout.
Beach season is in full swing in L.A., and I’ve been seizing every opportunity to hit the sand and soak up a little Vitamin Sea.
I live in mid-city and getting to the beach can take a while if you hit traffic. So the hubs and I like to get there early on the weekend, which means missing our favorite Saturday morning yoga class.
On a recent outing to try out Billabong’s new WarholSwim collection, I decided to make up for missing my beloved class by creating my own beachside Yoga Booty Workout.
This stretching and strengthening circuit is a total body toner but specifically targets those quads, hamstrings, and glutes.
It takes about 20 minutes to complete, and can be done anywhere – though I highly recommend a blue, breezy backdrop ;)
Try it out on your next leg day or when your summer beach read gets boring.
1. Goddess Squats – 15 reps
A. Start with legs spread wide, toes pointing out, arms stretched overhead and palms touching.
B. Squat down until thighs are parallel to the ground, knees bending directly over the ankle. Return to start. Repeat.
2. Crescent Lunge to Warrior 3 – 15 reps per side
A. Start in crescent lunge with arms reaching straight up overhead.
B. Hinge forward at the waist and use your back leg to launch into Warrior 3. Slowly, with control, return to start. Repeat on the same leg for 15 reps, then switch sides.
3. The Surfer – 10 reps
A. Starting on your belly, with arms and legs reaching straight out in opposite directions, paddle arms and flutter kick legs for 10 counts.
B. Plant hands below arms pits and use momentum to “pop” up into a surfer squat. Place hands back down and jump back into plank. Lower back to belly. Repeat. Alternate direction of jump with each rep.
4. Cat-Cow Extension – 15 reps per side
A. Begin on hands and knees with a flat back. Extend alternate arm and leg in opposite directions, arching back.
B. Bring elbow to knee, rounding back into a “cat” pose. Repeat for 15 reps, then switch sides.
5. Reverse Plank – 10 reps
A. Start sitting with legs straight. And palms planted on either side.
B. Press into palms, raising hips and butt toward the sky while keeping the legs straight. Hold for 5 seconds. Return to start. Repeat.
Repeat circuit 2-3 x
PIN the workout!
Btw – my new suit held up great during the workout. The top provides full coverage for even the toughest twists and bends. Plus, it’s super cute.
The Warholsurf line is based off famous prints from the artist and women’s swimwear retails for $55 to $95. Check out more stylish summer pieces on Billabong.com.
