So, you snoozed the alarm and missed your spin session again? Oops. In your defense though, it is cold, your doona is toasty warm and you know what? I’m not here to judge.…
The BOSU ball is right up there with my favourite pieces of equipment, but due to its kind-of-annoying size and shape I don’t get to pull it out and play with it very often (seriously, try squeezing it plus kettlebells, mats, medicine balls and battle ropes into the boot of your car sometime)….
Most of us don’t make the most of our workout time, whether we like to admit it to ourselves or not. Maybe we don’t go in with a clear plan, maybe the gym is too crowded, maybe someone else is using the equipment we need… plenty of factors can impact the quality of our sessions….
So you work out, but you’d like to give your derriere and the rest of the powerhouse that is your lower body a little extra attention, huh? Well then, have I got the thing for you!

Running, jumping, walking, swimming, lifting, pushing… whatever movement you’re doing, chances are that your glutes are involved. So it almost goes without saying that if you want glutes with maximum functionality (that also look great in a pair of jeans) then you need some squats in your life….
Two years ago I put together the first of my online fitness challenges. It was called the 28-Day Abs Challenge, and to this day it remains one of the most popular things on the LGF website. The only thing is that it’s now a little… clunky. It ran over four weeks, as six separate posts and, well, it’s just not exactly the most user-friendly thing out there. And what does that mean?
