Total Gym Addicts, Cassandra’s Booty Workout

Who wouldn’t want a more lifted, toned, and tighten booty? I started using Total Gym when I could no longer pull my jeans up over my thighs and was practically living in leggings! Sound familiar? It seems almost too easy to gain weight in the butt and thigh area. I struggle the most with these areas as you can see on my before and after photos, but I completely transformed my butt using the Total Gym.

In the past, I would do numerous floor exercises in the attempt to shape my butt. They were good exercises, but I hate being on the floor! I would use three yoga mats stacked on top of each other and still be hard on my back and knees. The Total Gym allows me to get a great workout with a comfortable padded glide board. I no longer have to do any exercise on the floor! There are many exercises for working the glutes that can be done on the Total Gym, however the ones I am sharing today are my personal favorites. The secret to success is to find what you love, keep doing it, and share it with everyone! So today, I am sharing with you!

Let’s get busy! We will start at a higher level so we can do some warm up squats. I am using the Total Gym Pilates Toe Bar because it targets the glutes and I can get deeper into the squats. The key is to squeeze your glutes during the exercises. If you do not have the Pilates Toe Bar, that’s okay! Use whatever Total Gym stand you have. This is a quick 15 min workout, so feel free to double the reps for a complete 30 min booty blast!
