SQUEEZE that Bum for a tighter tum ... and more!
One of my favorite clinics is a Bums and Tums format which is essentially a lower body workout. It is so much fun to do ... and very effective.
But lately, I've been noticing that I must have changed something without realizing it. I haven't been sweating as much ... and I'm a real dripper. I see a little creeping back in the torso meaning I don't feel as toned.
What is it, what is it, I've wondered. I must have changed something! I've been working out with different shoes that slip on the carpet in the gym making it very hard to keep the toes straight. Easy to fix! Just use shoes that don't slip.
Then, when adding a comment on a post about knees it hit me ... what I have allowed to drift recently.
I haven't been keeping the glutes tight to my max in key moves. Yes, sure enough there it was staring me right between the eyes.
A tucked tush is impossible to separate from KLT ... the two go together. Likewise, when the glutes are as tight as possible, the lats engage and the tummy tightens. TIGHT! When you keep the tush tight and work against that contraction, the impact is HUGE!
So, today I refocused on keeping the glutes tightly contracted during balance, hoe downs and TTN. Most other moves I don't think I had lost focus. WOW! The sweat came poring off once again and the power of the moves went rippling through the body.
The best part is the inherent synergy that exists throughout T-Tapp. By concentrating more on tight glutes, the base knee stayed turned out much more effectively, my balance was greatly enhanced by the entire torso being much more stable.
So ... squeeze the glutes even on one-legged flamingo moves. In those moves, the glute over the base leg will squeeze harder. Not to worry, though. The other side will get its fair chance!!!!
SQUEEZE and feel the power of your muscles, work against the contraction ... and watch the inches melt. I bet you might just get squeezed by your DH or SO a little more often too!
