Sprinting for Saddlebags

Ladies, this post is for you since most men don't have saddlebags.  They can be the absolute hardest part of the body to work out and lose weight on right?  Well I think I've discovered a major secret to targeting them: sprinting, but not just normal sprinting, sprinting where you stop and change directions as fast as you can.  If you need an example, watch athletes work out on ESPN, they do this all the time and there is definitely something to it.

Yesterday morning my knee hurt, thankfully by mid-day it was fine but my saddlebags are still a little bit sore even this morning, as are my butt muscles.  I've done a lot of walking in the last 8 months and these muscles have never felt quite like they did yesterday and today which tells me that it wasn't the walking on Wednesday night that got to them, it was the sprints that I did at the park during the walk - or maybe a combination of the two.

So if you're struggling with your hiney and saddlebags, give this a try.  It's a calorie torcher and I guarantee you'll feel it the next day.

Dog Park: Pretty much just walked around and tried to stand as much as possible because my glutes are still really sore
Walking: I SWORE I would do 3 miles and I did just over 3 (6,387 steps) between shopping, the dog park, and walking around the parking lot at home.

  1. Walking on a treadmill at an incline is also good for saddlebags. They are a problem area.
