Get your SWEAT ON! {Driveway Workout}

We had some friends in town that we hadn't seen in a while, so we made plans to do dinner with them tonight at 7 p.m. Well by the time I got home from work (after my 1 hour commute) I knew I had very little time to get a workout in. I didn't feel like only going for a run, and I definitely didn't have time to go to the gym, so I opted to do a {Driveway Workout}. 

I switch it up every time I do these, but tonight's workout consisted of the following butt-kicking exercises.

  • Lunges with a hip extension (12/leg)
  • Squat Jumps (12)
  • Burpees (12)
Do AMRAP (As Many Rounds As Possible) in 25 minutes.

If you have never done lunges with a hip extension, here's how you do it.

Lower into a regular lunge, ensuring your knee is aligned with your ankle. Push through all four corners of the lead foot (you should feel your glutes activate). Before placing the foot back on the ground extend your foot behind you with your leg straight and foot flexed.


Ta da! You just did a Lunge with a Hip Extension. You can perform these walking (I like to do them down my driveway and back) or stationary.

Three quick exercises using only your body weight. :) Who doesn't have time for this, right?

P.S. I apologize for the illustration. Note to Self: Next time my hubby is outside while I workout... have him snap a few photos. :)

Be Strong. Be Healthy. Be Balanced.
