Who doesn’t want a nice round booty and toned legs? Check out how LIV Body Athlete Shannon Henry tackles her leg and booty day. Stronger legs and glutes will help you burn more calories throughout the day and help you achieve your fitness goals quicker. Having a stronger lower body will also help prevent lower back injuries and help stabilize your body’s overall balance. The Smith Machine will be your new best friend after this workout 😉
Beginner’s Tip: Start with no or low weights until you are comfortable with your form and the machine. Slowly add weights as needed. Take this slow and steady. Make sure your form is correct with every rep. It can be easy to strain your knees and/or back if this is done incorrectly.
Pre-Workout Tip: Take LIV Body’s LIV Energy for maximum performance.
Featured Workout Routine
Smith Machine Sumo Squat (4x12)
Form: Feet wide with toes pointed out and thighs parallel to the floor, slowly lower your hips. Keep your back straight!
Smith Machine Narrow Stance Squat (4x10)
Form: Feet slightly narrower than shoulder width apart and knees facing forward, slowly lower yourself into a seated position. Be sure your knees do not go past your toes as you come down. As always, slow and steady wins the race and prevents injuries. Again, keep that back straight!
Smith Machine Reverse Lunge (3x10)
Form: Feet shoulder width apart, step backwards and slowly lower yourself until your back knee is barely touching the ground. Push up and raise your back leg up to your chest. Do not rush through this! Correct form is your best friend and so is going steady like we’re in the fifties.
Weighted Hip thrusts (3x10)
Form: Position the weight directly over your hips. Keep your spine neutral and your body aligned. Thrust your hips up and squeeze your glutes. It is important to come down slowly and smoothly. If you feel any pain on your hips, double check that your weights are not too heavy and/or you have enough padding between the weight and your hips.
RDL’s (Romanian Deadlifts) (3x10)
Form: Feet shoulder width apart. While keeping your back straight, bend at your waist. Squeeze your glutes and stand up. It is important that you do not have a rounded back for this exercise either.
Glute Focused Back Extension (3x12)
Form: Laying on your stomach, swing your legs away from you and squeeze your glutes. Keep your core tight and do not strain your back. You should feel everything in your glutes and core. If you feel any pain in your lower back at all, stop and reposition your body so your core is fully engaged.
Post Workout Tip: Recover with LIV Body’s Hydrating Aminos.

*A superset is when you move quickly from one exercise to a separate exercise without taking a break for rest in between the two exercises.
