Ready to shape your glutes and get the round, tight booty you have always wanted? My Dancer Workout Plan is a high rep, dance inspired leg and glute focused workout that can be done anywhere!
I love to dance! Not just because it is fun or a great cardio workout (although it is!) – but because of the incredible things a dancer workout does for your legs and glutes. After so many years of gymnastics and dance, I wanted to share some of my favorite, do anywhere moves that have helped shape my glutes. Low impact, but highly intense, when you do these moves slowly and methodically, you will really feel the burn in your legs and glutes. I designed this dancer workout to be done as a circuit with little rest between each exercise. Complete assigned reps of each exercise then move on to the next exercise. Rest and stretch for 2-3 mins between each circuit. In all, complete 3-5 rounds of the circuit depending on your fitness level. Alright! Get moving and shape those glutes with my Dancers Leg & Glute Workout!
Dancer Workout Exercise 1: Side Leg Raise with Squats
Begin with the theraband around your ankles adjusted to have a modest amount of tension when your feet are shoulder width apart. Squat deeply, being sure to keep the weight evenly through your whole foot. As you rise up, straighten through one leg and lift it out to the side. Squat back down deeply, then rise up and lift the opposite leg up and outward. Alternate sides to complete a total of 20 reps on each side.
**Julie's tip: Be sure to activate your glute as you laterally lift your leg through this movement!
