Like a Ton of Bricks

Ask a woman which area of her body she wants to tone and odds are she’ll either answer (1) her arms or (2) her hips/thighs/booty.  We took care of that first answer last week.  If you missed it, here it is again.  As for number 2, let me introduce you to the brick workout.

Brick workouts are simple, yet really effective at slimming your lower half.  Start out on the bike.  You’re going to want to spend about 1/2 to 3/4 of your workout time pedaling.  When time is up, transition to the treadmill and start running.  Finish your workout there.  And that’s it!  After the first time, you’ll understand why it’s called a brick workout. 

For those of you who want to know what you’re getting into before trying, your legs essentially feel like bricks as you changeover from biking to running.  You’re going to have to force the run at first, but as your running muscles get warmed up, you’ll fall into your normal running rhythm.

Like I said, I found this a great way to tone those hips, thighs and glutes.  I recommend working a brick workout into your workout routine no more than once every other week.
