My Mom’s Workout Routine

Jul 27, 2017 |

After almost two decades of going to the gym, my mom got bored and decided to try something different. This super easy at-home workout routine is now her exercise method of choice. It works your butt, legs, and abs, and doesn’t require any equipment!

Sometimes the hardest part of working out is just getting to the gym. Maybe you don’t have time, or energy, or an easy way to get there, or you’re just bored of working out there.

The great thing about my mom’s at-home workout routines is that there are no more excuses! This doesn’t take any equipment at all, so it’s great to do while you’re traveling or when your day is so full you can’t squeeze in a trip to the gym.

This routine targets the butt, legs, and abs in just four simple exercises. This is a big part of how my mom stays fit and toned (though a lot of that also comes from her love for walking).

I’ve written down the routine here, but check out the video for a visual explanation of how to do these exercises.

60 leg raises: get on all fours. Keeping your knee at a 90-degree angle, lift your left leg until your body is in a straight line from shoulder to knee (with your foot extended upward). Lower your knee back to the ground. Do three reps of 10 leg raises on each side, alternating sides.

30 squats: do three sets of 10 normal squats. As always with squats, squeeze your glutes at the top and don’t let your knees extend past your toes.

30 hip raises: lie on the floor on your back, with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor, arms resting on the floor at your sides. Cross your right ankle just above your left knee. With your left foot planted, lift your hips off the floor then lower them back onto the floor. Do this 15 times, then switch legs and do it 15 more times with your right foot planted on the floor.

30 leg raises: lie on your back on the floor, arms resting on the floor at your sides. Keeping your feet and knees together, lift your legs as high as you comfortably can. Lower them to near (but not touching) the floor. Do three sets of 10 leg raises.

My mom is a huge inspiration for me. She’s been transitioning into a more plant-based diet over the last several years, but she has always taken great care of her body with exercise. As you can see in the video, she’s in amazing shape and radiates energy!

Her at-home workout routines really work for me too, and I’m so happy to share this one with you! Leave a comment below about how it works for you, and also let me know if you’d like to see more workout blogs and videos like this.

With love, ❤️
