Humpday Booty Burner

Sometimes, late at night, the Pilot and I will look each other in the eyes and we know.



“Do you want to go, or you want me to?”

Thank goodness BTO is open late, aaaaand they have an awesome variety of dairy-free flavors and tons of toppings. I think we’ve mastered the art of making each other’s favorite froyo- while the Pilot likes his to resemble pie as closely as possible (vanilla or cinnamon froyo with cherries and graham crackers), I prefer a sampler of the dairy-free flavors with chocolate chips, some berries and hot peanut butter.


When I would read about bloggers going to Pinkberry or Menchie’s all the time, I used to be kind of jealous πŸ˜‰ Now that I’ve found a close froyo place with dairy-free options, I’m making up for lost time.

When I got home, I put out the call on Facebook to see if you would like a booty burner or ab burner for today.


It was such a close one, I decided to go with booty. It is humpday, after all. I promise to get an ab burner up soon, too!Β 


Hope you enjoy this little workout quickie.

A couple of notes:

-As always, check with a doc before making any fitness changes. Honor your body and your injuries

-Warm up for about 5 minutes before starting the video

-I filmed it in one take, with the exception of the last set because my Flip ran out of room. A of couple bloopers occur.

-Sore city today!

When you try it, please leave a comment and let me know what you think and if you’d like more of these in the future <3

    Good morning. I literally just found out about from Julie at Peanut Butter Fingers (about sock buns of all things). Anyway, I started watching this video and stopped it because I can already tell I am going to like it and will do it later.

    Thank you so much for the time you put into something like this! I am getting to know your site as we speak and you have quite the resources.

      OK. Just did it. Sweating like crazy. Awesome. I had never seen the back leg extension lunge before.

    One more thing. Where did you get your top and work out pants? I really love them. I have a hard time finding tops that length and it is my favorite length.

    Whoa! I did this with the 5-minute ab frenzy and one of your tabata thursday videos. I am a sweaty girl!

    I’d love to see some more videos like this. I really like being able to follow along. πŸ™‚
    Thanks for sharing!

    Just did your video… you weren’t kidding about the “burner” part! I think tomorrow is going to be one of those so sore it’s hard to sit down days……….

    Anyway, loved the video! Keep ’em coming!

  14. Pinky on September 15, 2012 at 10:03 pm

    Great leg workout, but I haven’t felt it in the booty either time I tried the workout [that sounds so wrong, my bad]. My hamstrings and quads are on fire the next day, but the biscuits are burning.

    Do you have an form ques? Maybe I’m using my legs too much?

    I know this is totally random and probably something you can’t correct without a visual but just thought I’d throw it out there. I enjoy your videos!

    • Pinky on September 15, 2012 at 10:03 pm

      biscuits *aren’t* burning!

  15. Alisha on September 17, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    Originally found your website at the start of this pregnancy (4th!). I just did this video with baby in the sling (12 weeks old). I modified a bit so there was no jumping but it worked GREAT for postnatal workout! Happy baby AND happy mama!

    • Fitnessista on April 9, 2015 at 9:47 pm
