30-Day Pilates Body Challenge: Day #10 (booty!)

30 day challenge thumb day 10

Hi Beauties!

How are your arms feeling after yesterday’s upper body routine? Don’t worry, we’ll give them a break today as we focus on the booty instead.

Today’s workout is gonna “hurt so good.” 🙂 As you work through it, keep in mind that there is a lovely stretch at the end of the series. Let that motivate you to keep moving even when it feels hard. Whatever you do, don’t give up.


Daily Check-In: Snap a photo of your workout space! It doesn’t have to be pretty or fancy…I just want to see that you’re out there with me! Use the hashtag #30daypilatesbody so I can see your posts. 🙂

    That was intense!!

    Thank you for always smiling Robin. There was a point where I was about to take a break because the workout was a bit too much, but then I looked at you and you randomly smiled, I smiled back haha and I just continued this booty burnin’ stuff. It was worth it ??

    Yowee! That was a toughie!
    Just a quick question – when I bring my legs to table top, I get a burning muscular pain where my hip joins my leg but its only on one side… It’s also the same side I carry my 13month old so I’m wondering if it’s an imbalance / weakness?

    Ooh, I LOVE side-lying work! Thanks for a great workout 🙂

    One question: I’m not very flexible, and when I try to externally rotate my top leg it only rotates around 30 degrees. I notice your leg is rotated much more than this and you seem to be moving on the same plane as your leg is facing, if that makes sense; should I do likewise (ie, my leg moving more forward than up), or should I lift up with my leg still rotated more to the front?

    Yay! Loved this. Now that I know how to keep my hips stacked during clamshells I’m amazed at how limited my range of motion is and how much more powerful those small, correct, movements are! I was able to get this booty workout AND day 3 in ! Yay me 🙂 Thanks Robin! Oh, during bridges I also got some movement in a portion of my spine that I’ve been trying to work on for the past 9 months!! It’s a good morning

  17. Dianne 4 years ago

    Ouch! Glutes were on fire!

  18. Nina 4 years ago

    That was burny LOL! I followed up with a glute workout from 28 days too – which was pretty much a similar thing – double ouch!!!

    Loved this! I’ve missed a few days in the challenge but I’m still pressing onward. I had my 3rd baby 6 weeks (and she was 5 weeks early). It’s been a stressful time making sure she is thriving as well as my boys. These workouts are a fun treat that I can fit into the day. Well most days:-) it’s been refreshing to ease back into exercise with Pilates. I’ve always been into more “intense” exercise, but I’m finding that Pilates gives me that sense of challenge but also a calmness throughout the day. Thank you!

    This was SO GOOD! I did another booty workout right after, could hardly get through it, but feeling so shaky now in the best way! Loving this challenge! I haven’t been posting pics but I have been doing the workouts every day! 🙂 And the activities on my own!

    Done! I did not complete the last set of clam shell add-ons for each side as I have my Thursday night TRX session in 30 minutes an don’t want to over-do tonight. Could really feel the burn with this session!

    Oh my goodness! That was hard! I didn’t get a chance to do yesterday’s workout so I did both just now. My whole body feels it. Definitely need to go back to workouts 9 and 10 to keep getting stronger! Great job everyone!

  28. Judy 4 years ago

    Got home late after an evening out hearing a fantastic band w/ friends. Was glad these exercises matched ones I did 2 days ago in a pilates class at the gym. Familiar and effective!
