Get ready to feel the burn, because this Magic Mike gym workout is hot!
This Magic Mike workout is for men and women. If pole dancing classes are not your cup o’ tea, but you want the body of a stripper, try this Magic Mike workout. Designed to work your abs & booty, this beginner gym workout will have you bending, squatting, and thrusting like a pro.
Bonus points if you wear those swishy, button-down warmup sweats and rip them off à la BeastMode at the gym.
The Magic Mike Workout:
Four rounds of 10 reps for each of the following:
- Straight Legged Deadlifts: Start in an upright position, holding the barbell with a narrow (hip width) overhand grip. Keep the barbell close to your legs as you hinge your torso forward at the hips and lower the weight. Take care to keep your weight on your heels, and avoid rounding your back as you lower the barbell to your toes, then straighten back up.
- Back squats: No half-assed squats here. Pick a lighter weight that allows you to drop it low to the flo’ and bring it up slow.
- Glute bridge: Lay on the ground with your knees bent, press your hips upwards, then lower them back down (in other words… thrust). Keep your upper back & shoulder blades on the ground while you do this. For added intensity, place a barbell or plate on your hips.
- Reverse crunches: Lay on the ground with your arms at your sides and your feet in the air. Engage your abs and lift your your legs & bum upwards, and closer into your body, then back out.
