Remember that 40-minute lower body workout I posted a few back? Well it had me waddling for the next 2 days 😭🙈 I felt it was necessary to use the next gym session as a more “active” rest day with some specific stretches to help with the soreness. They felt soooo good !!! Hold each pose for 10-30 seconds.. Watch the clips for more deetaaillls 💪🏼😃 Give these stretches a try if you’re feeling tight in your glutes, hips and inner thighs especially !! .

Suns out, buns “halfway” out ! 😎🍑 For those of you who have asked, I wear @ravishsands Brazilian Cheeky bottoms ... 👙 I usually wear my bikinis where there’s children or people not used to seeing a ton of skin and prefer to cover my backside at least a little.... 😂😛 So if you are like me, choose the Brazilian cheekiesss!! #bikinis #swimsuits #ravishsands #florida #tgif #fridayvibes #weekendvibes

Yesterday was a special workout!! Not only did I have a legday partner, but also had a video footage helper!! 🙌🏼🤩 Thanks babessss 💕😘 .
We did some of our favorite machines and some of our favorite moves to really target the quads, hamstrings, glutes, lower back and calves (sorry guys, we didn’t take footage of the calf exercises 🙈😭)... .
No bells and whistles - just raw footage of this workout busting my 🍑🍑!! Perform 10-12 reps of each exercise | 5 sets each | increase weight by 5-15 lbs with every set.. And notice how slow I’m going in these moves today.. Mind-muscle connection is no joke! .

This morning I woke up feeling ...⠀
uncomfortable (oh yes it happens to all of us) ⠀

- I ate more salt last night than I’m used to while watching the #nbafinals —> sometimes I handle it ok and other times not so much 😖⠀

- TMI but it’s TTOTM .. The first 1-2 days, I hold onto excess water and this morning cramps came in like a wrecking ball 😫 ⠀

- Yesterday’s workout was amazinggg but left my lower back pretty sore and tender 🙁⠀

There were several reasons why I could’ve opted out of my workout this morning. Didn’t exactly feel like my motivated self and truly felt my TOTM would get the best of me.⠀

But... I chose my cutest and most comfortable workout outfit, took 2 Motrin, and sucked it up.. and here’s what happened... ⠀

30 minutes later - my endorphins (and motrin) kicked in and left me with minimal pain. Please note - I’m not recommending meds here, just being truthful - sometimes I need it in these circumstances). ⠀

I was starting to feel tighter and leaner, sweating as the workout continued. My energy levels were increasing and my mood was improving .. Hello, a soon-to-be positive and productive day !! ♥️⠀

The purpose of this post is just a reminder that there’s so many beautiful benefits of exercise - outside of the typical “aesthetics” you see here on Instagram and other social media platforms... ⠀

Don’t forget the small benefits you receive from just 20-30 minutes of exercise a few days a week... It doesn’t mean opting out is a BAD thing at times - but sometimes exercise will help even if you think it may not.... It’s totally worth it and one of the BEST things you can do for yourself! 💙✨ ⠀

Happy Thursday, everyone!! ⠀

Anyone else feel like you push yourself even more if you’re pressed for time during your workout?? 🤩🙌🏼 This week my workouts have been between 30-45 minutes and not every day. Hey, sometimes other areas of life take priorityyyy 🤪 Never feel defeated if you can’t follow your routine to a T every week. Just go with it - because if you’re dedicated to working out, you’ll get back to your routine in no time .. ☺️💙 .
I performed these 4 moves (clips 2 & 3 are the same just a different angle)... This workout focused on all areas of the upper thighs (front, sides and back) 😛 Complete all 4 exercises back to back with 15 reps each . Complete 4 sets. #BBYinspired #hiit #buttworkout #ptulaactive #positivevibes #fitnessmotivation #workoutmotivation
