VIDEO: My 45 minute workout for gluts, legs and abdominals

My 45 minute workout targeting gluts, core and abdominals

I hate going to the gym. I like running but can really only do it in Spring and Summer. The air is too cold in the Fall & Winter here in New York City. So when I need a good sweat fest I do a 45 minute workout that mostly targets my legs, gluts and abdominals. As a physical therapist, I do a lot of lifting/carrying/stretching of my upper body. I find that just work alone really gives my upper body especially my arms and pectorals a good workout. So when I do workout, I barely do any arm work, which is why not many arm exercises are included. Here’s my list of exercises below. Please do consult your physician or physical therapist before starting any new exercises. Also drop any questions you have below in the comments!
