    4 Cable Exercises to Shape Your Booty

    Since my journey to getting my muscles back, my butt has always been one of my main concerns.  Lets face it, I am not blessed with natural curves, aka no boobs or butt, however with hard work, the right diet, and the right workouts I know I can grow my butt. One thing I wanted to do different this time around was really focus on my butt muscles and concentrate on those muscles instead of just doing “leg” day. I tend to grow my quads faster than any other muscle in my body, and what I didn’t want was overly exaggerated quads. So with tons of research I found these four workouts to be some of the most effective workouts to exercise your booty on the cable machine. If you watched my previous video 4 Exercises Using The Lat Pull Down Machine, you know I am a big fan of cable exercises. Cable exercises are a great way to workout to target specific muscles and offer a full range of motions. These  4 Cable Exercises to Shape Your Booty are four exercise you will want to incorporate in your routine. Watch the video and read the description below!

    Country, Love, and Rock and Roll

    This past weekend was a great weekend spent with my family on the farm. We were all rooting for the Broncos for the Super Bowl and were so happy they won. Congrats to my favorite QB of all time Peyton Manning and his win. Not only is he a great player but a great role model. I grew up watching Peyton play for the Tennessee Volunteers, to the Colts, and now the Broncos. Now if only the Texans would draft him that would be icing on the cake!;) But now that football season is over, it’s time look forward to Valentines Day and Rodeo Season!
