I had to stop several times but I did finish this one. Hopefully soon I will be able to go all the way through without needing to pause. :)

Five minutes of BURN!!! My daughter ran into the room, thinking there was something wrong. I guess I was a little too verbal about the intensity of that little workout. emoticon

I did it, and my tush feels shaky... emoticon
That was a good all round workout... I did slow down and march in place in some parts...but, mostly because I am not that coordinated.

Really liked it a lot! Of course--with me not being in great shape--it was hard--anything is a little--but I feel great for doing it!!

Whew! I thought I had fairly strong legs. Maybe I do, but my hiney is noodle soft. especially now. I did this along with the 28 day bootcamp cardio and day 2 workout, so I'm ready to go back to bed now. emoticon
I like the daily challenges. I may not do them all, every day, but I"m saving them. Then, I can pick and chose if I need something to pick me up in the late afternoon, or evening.

Wow that was a great workout. Thanks for sending the challenges. I find its best when you read the email for the day to "just do it"...whatever the exercise is instead of thinking I'll come back to it... It's only a few minutes out of your day and the paybacks are sooo worth it. Keep up the good work everyone.

Oh wow!!! That was a work out. That really worked you legs and bottom. I am 45 years old and I haven't exercised in years. I have been doing the Wii Fit also plus the Wii Active and that has been a workout for me also. Especially the running part of it. Wow!! I will definately lose weight this way.

Your challenge today only takes 6 minutes! You can do this...here it is:

VIDEO: Coach Nicole's Butt-Blasting Workout
Four Moves for a Tighter Tush
www.sparkpeople.com/resource/fitness
_a
rticles.asp?id=727


About This Workout
Did you know that the gluteus maximus is actually the largest AND strongest muscle in the human body? This muscle works hard when you run or briskly walk—especially when going uphill. But women also tend to store fat in the buttocks. While fat storage here is normal and healthy, excessive fat storage on top of the largest muscle in the body can result in a lot of bulk. With age, this area can become droopy and flat—an appearance that most women want to avoid.

If you're tired of performing endless squats and lunges in hopes of slimming and shaping your derrière, then this short, focused workout is for you. These exercises target the gluteus maximus to retain strength and muscle tone, and also work the surrounding muscles, including the gluteus medius (located at the superior and outer portion of the buttocks), gluteus minimus (located underneath the gluteus maximus) and the tensor fascia lata (near the quadriceps). After just six minutes of these targeted exercises, you WILL feel the burn and notice tighter and firmer muscles over time.

Length: 6 minutes
Equipment: Body weight, mat (optional, for cushioning)
Type of Workout: Strength training (toning) & flexibility
Muscles Worked: Glutes
Fitness Level: Beginner to advanced
Impact: Low-impact

Safety Precautions: A mat will help cushion your body on the floor. Since this video will work your muscles to fatigue, rest at least 1-2 days before doing additional gluteal exercises.

NEW! Track Your Workout: Scroll down to the bottom of the video page and click the "Add to Fitness Tracker" button. (You must be logged in for this to work.)

Extra Tip: Only complete as many exercises as you can, taking a break as needed. As you progress, try to finish the entire video.

emoticon Come on back and let us know what you think about this challenge!!!

Have a TERRIFIC Tuesday emoticon
