After a little bit of research (and a few cups of coffee), I found out it takes me about three minutes to fill and heat the water in my kettle and about 30 seconds to fill my cup. So of course, I had to come up with a quick workout to make those minutes really count!
Do this butt-sculpting workout in the AM or whenever you need a quick pick-me-up. Just by adding this short sequence to your routine every morning, you will gain more than 90 minutes of exercise a month and over 18 hours of movement a year—everything counts! Try to perform each move for 30-40 seconds or until your cup is brewed, and aim to flow from one movement to the next without stopping for best results.
Feel free to use your counter for extra assistance or help balancing so you can focus on your form. Two hands is easiest, turning to the side and using one hand is a little harder, and no hands is most advanced. Pick what works for you.
If you’re a newbie to butt workouts, you may not know how to activate your glutes. When you stand up or walk upstairs, you use your quads, but you don’t use your glutes as much in everyday life. For this workout, really think about the muscles you’re aiming to engage instead of just going through the motions—this way you will fire up those glutes!
