sundayfunday : can you tell yet what my favorite thing about offseason is? 🍑🤣 definitely traded the shreds for the glute gainz 😎
here are a few tips on how i’ve grown my glutes :
— MORE FOOD 🤤 offseason (or “bulking” season) is when i really focus on this because more food = more energy = more strength) — warm up the glutes : do a few glute focused exercises before you get into your workout (banded exercises or hip abductor are my favorites, and this is really the only time i even use bands anymore) this has helped me a lot with mind muscle connection.
— progressive overload : more weight, more sets, or more reps. or sometimes even a combination of two or three of those! my favorite thing to do is 4 sets, increasing weight each time and on my last set is when i do my heaviest weight for 6-8 reps... as opposed to 10-12 reps on lighter weight.
— a few of my favorite glute focused exercises : sumo deadlifts, straight leg deadlifts, or hip thrusts.
— you can make many leg exercises glute focused just based on the angle and placement of your feet (outward) and this is how i have managed to grow my glutes and hamstrings (without also excessively growing my quads) 💪🏼
