We’re baaaaaack! I partnered with my good friend Kait Hurley to bring you guys part II of our move + meditate series. We had SO much fun with our first video that we decided we needed to do another one. This time: The Ass Class! Kait will lead us through some of our favorite butt-burning moves and give you tips to go deeper and activate your glutes in a more intentional way. At the end of the 30-minute workout, there’s a grounding meditation to round out the class. I hope you enjoy this fun, booty kicking workout!
Let’s talk about the glutes. They’re one of the most major muscles in the body, and we need strong glutes to power us during our workouts and to perform simple day-to-day tasks—like picking something up off the floor or even just walking. Here’s the thing though: Because of all the sitting we do, our hip flexors get short and tight. As a result, our glute muscles lengthen and weaken. Over time, the glutes can even forget how to turn on properly, which means, even though we try to contract and fire our glute muscles, we can’t. Instead, we might feel the burn in our hamstrings but our glutes refuse to do the work. This can lead to all kinds of health problems including pelvic floor issues (think sneeze and pee) plus low-back and knee pain. The solution? Moving the body more, sitting less and focusing on really smart, targeted, glute work.
If you loved this video, pop over to Kait’s site to get the full move and meditate experience. She’s got a 15-day free trial, and a new Summer Reset Challenge launching on April 30th to help you get in shape for summer. I’m going to be using Kait’s videos when we’re over traveling around Italy for the next 3 weeks!
