Guys, here is the new workout – all about thighs and booty 🙂 This workout was very hard for me, I don’t know if I am not myself or it is really hard; let me know in the comments.
The first exercise is named after my country (don’t know why 🙂 but I like it) – Bulgarian split squat – it is a hard exercise and not for beginners!
I should think of more Bulgarian exercises it will be fun 🙂
This is an interval training, 35 intervals 35/5, 5 rounds, total 23 minutes. No rest between exercises, 5 seconds to switch to the next exercise position.
1. Bulgarian split squat LEFT* leg
2. Bulgarian split squat RIGHT* leg
*Each round alternates the leg you start with.
3. (Weighted) Sumo pulses
4. Single (double) leg hip lifts on a char (balance ball) LEFT* leg
5. Single (double) leg hip lifts on a char (balance ball) RIGHT* leg
6. (Weighted) Front squat + 2 low knee raises
7. Alternating 3 leg back lifts from low squat position
Rumi’s struggle: The whole workout was very hard for me. May be I needed longer warm up. Usually I warm up 5-7 minutes, but sometimes I need more to awaken my body. If you have time, warm up 10 minutes and then you are stronger and can do more quality work which means more energy spend.
It was a surprise I can’t do 35 seconds continuous Sumo pulses, my thighs were burning and I was craving for rest, so I took.
Hip lifts on a chair is the most hated (in a good way) exercise by me. When I found an exercise that makes me crying I regularly do it for several workouts and I am becoming better fast.
Questions of the day:
Do you like Bulgarian split squat? Do you have a hated exercise, which one?
