|Me and my legs at Akamina Ridge, Waterton National Park|
Here’s today’s workout:
1) Butt Crunches (for butt): while seated or lying down, squeeze your butt cheeks as tight as you can for 3 seconds, and release. Do 30.
2) 3 minutes of Walking Lunges (for quads): Step forward with right foot, lunge forward until back knee almost touches the floor. Don’t let your right knee get too far over your foot. Push up with right leg and bring left foot forward to lunge with left leg. Instructions and video here: http://www.bodybuilding.com/exercises/detail/view/name/bodyweight-walking-lunge
3) 10 30-second Squats (for lower body). If your knees are solid, do 10-20 squat jumps instead. Squat jump = squat with hands out in front of you, jump up and lift arms above your head, immediately lower into another squat and bounce up. You will find your rhythm.

How is it going? Are you having fun? If you miss a day, don’t stress. Try to make it up the next day; I know I had to last week.
Keep it up!
