The Glute Guide 2.0 (quick edition) is live! Today I want to give you a sneak peek inside and to discuss all things glutes. Glutes, as most of you know, are the butt muscles and they often require a bit more dedication and strategic training to improve. My new Glute Guide will help you achieve all your glute goals and then some. Read on!
MY PROGRESS WITH THE GLUTE GUIDE
I’ve never had a “baby got back” style booty, but it’s always been pretty lifted, tight and fit thanks to weight lifting. Haha – this is so awkward to type but I’ll do it to help a fellow sister out. Anyways, I always felt confident with my butt whether I was in a bikini, jeans or leggings.
When I had my son, I took 8 weeks off of any exercise and only at 4-5 months postpartum was I actually lifting how I did previously. The one muscle group that physically appeared to “suffer” the most from that time off was my butt.
The year prior to having my son, I released the original Glute Guide but the workouts were much longer. I did modified versions of that plan, switching up the exercises and shortening the duration. I basically created the Glute Guide 2.0 for myself and for this challenge, I thought, why not actually share it.
By adding in short, glute-focused workouts to my regular lifts throughout the week, I was able to reduce cellulite, lift it from it’s former saggy status, and sculpt it to look like a healthy, fit booty! Honestly, I’m so proud of my glute progress. I feel confident from the backside and I hope you will too!
4 TYPES OF GLUTE GUIDE WORKOUTS
There are 4 different training approaches used within the Glute Guide to target the muscles differently.
LOWER BODY STRENGTH: there is 1 exercise I found to help sculpt the booty more than any other exercise and it’s not a squat or deadlift (as you may think). The lower body strength workout will focus on specific sets, reps and weight using this very effective movement.
GLUTE ISOLATION: these days will focus on isolating the glutes through targetting movements. Often times, these workouts will include unilateral exercises (one side at a time) to further emphasis the butt muscles.
PLYOMETRICS: 1 day per week, we will include plyometrics or jump training. This is a hybrid between glute workouts and cardio and I find it very effective at achieving that fit, sculpted booty.
GLUTE ACCESSORY: the weekly accessory workout is designed to provide us 1 more day of glute training without getting too sore and fatigued. These workouts are the cherry on top of a beautiful booty sundae.
