The No-Squats About It Booty Workout

June 29, 2015 2 min read

Some of us are not able to squat. It could be due to bad knees or an old injury. Here are 5 great alternatives to work your booty without a single squat! 1. The Clam (3 sets of 15 reps)  
  • Lie on your side. Rest your head on your arm or hand as shown.
  • Bend hips to approximately 45 degrees and bend your knees at 90 degrees. Make sure one hip is lying above the other. You should now be well aligned - your feet should be in line with your back.
  • Take a deep breath in and as you exhale set your core muscles.
  • Inhale and whilst exhaling float the upper leg upwards while keeping your feet in contact with one another.
  • Inhale and as you exhale bring the leg down to the starting position.
2. The Glute Bridge (3 sets of 12 reps)  
  • Lie flat on the floor on your back with the hands by your side and your knees bent. Your feet should be placed around shoulder width. This will be your starting position.
  • Pushing mainly with your heels, lift your hips off the floor while keeping your back straight.
  • Breathe out as you perform this part of the motion and hold at the top for a second.
  • Slowly go back to the starting position as you breathe in.
3. Single Legged Deadlifts (3 sets of 12 reps)  
  • Position one arm out in front of your body.
  • Stand with feet together. Lift leg slightly so foot is just off floor.
  • Lower outreached arm to floor while raising lifted leg back behind. Keep back straight and knee of supporting leg slightly bend. Keep hip and knee of lifted leg extended throughout movement.
  • Once stretch is felt or your fingertips contacts floor, return to original position by raising torso while lowering lifted leg.
  • Straighten knee of supporting leg as torso becomes upright. Repeat.
4. Step Ups (3 sets of 15 reps)  
  • Start by stepping onto the bench with your left foot.
  • Then, bring your right foot up and lift the right leg to a 90-degree angle (shown in the photo above); lower your right foot down to tap the floor. Be sure your left foot never moves as you bend and straighten your right knee.
  • This completes one rep.
5. Standing Forward Leg Raises (3 sets of 20 reps)  
  • Stand next to a chair or other support, holding on with one hand.
  • Swing your leg forward, keeping the leg straight. Continue with a downward swing, bringing the leg as far back as your flexibility allows. Repeat 5-10 times, and then switch legs.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
