    This one is a major butt-kicker! It includes just five lower body exercises, but it’s a tough one. My glutes are super sore today!

    I love the curtsy squat too! It works the whole section so nicely. Gotta hit all major muscle groups around the glutes, right?! :)

    Walking side lunges with a band are killer!!!

    Lunges and squats are my all time favorite butt workouts – gets me every time! In fact I did them yesterday in my bootcamp class and my buns are super sore…I love it though b/c it makes me feel like I got buns of steel ;)

    Curtsy squats rock! Weird as it may sound, I love making my gluts burn :)

    Looks like a great leg workout. I’ve been thinking I need to change things up a bit for legs on Monday and this routine looks like just what I need. I’ve never tried a curtsy squat. Hopefully it doesn’t bug my knees.

    I am going to try this workout today. So glad you included the links for the exercises because I have never heard of curtsy squats before.

    Lower body workouts always KILL my legs. But I guess that just means I’m not working out my legs enough. :P

    Squat might look like a more muscular exercise than one that would help in loosing weight, but trust me, 50 squats a day can really help in making you look not only slim, but in tone as well.
