Wow! This was brutal for a bodyweight strength workout! I hit muscle burn out a few times in the course of this workout. Brutal Booty & Leg Slimming Workout is a lower body strength workout from Heather Robertson, and it is awesome!
This workout is done in typical Heather Robertson fashion–timed intervals, set to music with no talking. Each exercise is done for 50 seconds with 10 seconds of rest. The upcoming exercise is previewed during the 10 second rest. 50 seconds is a long time for some of these exercises and I did a lot of whimpering during a few of them! Burn out! Another excellent workout from Heather! If this is not hard enough for you, there are a few ways to increase the intensity–add ankle weights and a booty band around your thighs. It was sufficiently challenging as presented for me, but if you need more, adding some extra equipment will definitely elevate this workout.
