VIDEO: Bikini Bum Workout

TEAM – we are only 3 days into the Summer Sweat Series and DAYUM. I am so inspired by the amount of people that are participating in this year’s SSS. Makes me want to have everyone over for one big giant dinner featuring FFF’s Cashew Chicken Quinoa Bake followed by AK’s Blueberry Breakfast Cookies for dessert.

This past weekend was SO MUCH FUN. Ambitious Kitchen and Fit Foodie Finds hosted the Summer Sweat Series launch party on Sunday morning in Minneapolis and just had so much fun. 1. I was swimming in sweat, 2. I got to drink rose after my workout, and 3. the swag bags were INSANE. It was so fun to have Marissa from Finish Line at the party because she gave a way a bunch of pairs of shoes from FL.com and even got sweaty with us! I’m planning an entire SSS launch party recap, but I did want to share one sneak peek photo.

Today I am excited to share a bonus workout as part of the Sweat Series! Monique and I got lots of feedback last year that more and more people LOVE bodyweight workouts that can be done anywhere with no equipment. I travel a lot and I get it…Bodyweight workouts are the best when you are on vacation or simply don’t have access to a gym. This workout specifically is all about that bikini bum. Werk dat booty, people! We’re talking squats, lunges, glute bridges, and more squats. 

You guys can thank Lindsey from Nourish, Move, Love for this one! It’s circuit based —> 20 reps of each exercise and 3 rounds! 

What I’m wearing: adidas Pure Boosts | adidas Tech Fit Tights | adidas Keyhole Training Tank (similar) Do this Bikini Bum Workout anywhere at anytime! All you need is your bodyweight and about 30 minutes.
