05 Nov Lower Body Warm-up + Booty Activation
Some people nag their loved ones about eating better, working out, or cleaning up… I nag people about warming up before exercise. If you want to have a good workout, you need to prepare the body first. Personally, I have seen my body change drastically after I started committing more time to my warm-up routine. Today I want to share with you why you need to warm-up and show you what an effective warm-up looks like.
The warm-up routine below will help you warm-up your lower body and activate your butt muscles so you are able to feel them more in your leg workout.
The warm-up section is very influenced by yoga. I will take you through some active stretches and mobility exercises, and each movement will be connected. This will generate heat in the body, stretch out any tight muscles that may hinder your workout, and engage the lower body muscles you are about to work. A warm-up should not be easy. It should be effective. And this one will be.
After the main warm-up is finished, we will move on to some butt activating exercises using a mini band. Many people struggle to feel their gluteal muscles in a leg workout. Doing these activation exercises prior to the workout will help you feel them more! If you don’t have a mini band, get one from the MFit Amazon store. You do not want to skip this activation section.
Activating the gluteal muscles is not only beneficial to molding a better booty, but it is also extremely important if you have knee issues. I have created tons of knee-friendly workouts for the MFit YouTube channel and the MFit Membership, but if you want your knees to feel better and stronger so you can eventually workout without limitations, you need to work on your butt!
My 4-Week Peach Plan puts so much attention on lower body warm-ups for all the reasons stated above. So if you have knee issues, want a better look behind, or just want a challenge – check out that program.
