    I waited until I completed a full 12-week program before rating this one. This is full of great information for strength training and has many different programs you can follow and even repeat. I did the intermediate program and I was able to do almost every exercise with my squat rack, bench, and dumbbells. Had to get a little creative with some, though. The author has posted videos of every exercise on YouTube and that was really helpful for me to reference.

I would love to continue on to the advanced program but you really need access to a gym for most of the exercises in that one. I'm considering starting the intermediate program over and just continuing to up my numbers.

    From world-renowned strength and physique coach, Bret Contreras-"The Glute Guy", Glute Lab is the most comprehensive lower body training system on the market. I first discovered Bret Contreras through his Youtube channel and purchased his first book, Strong Curves, in January 2014. I went through the beginner, intermediate and advanced programs in Strong Curves about 3-4 full times from 2014-2019 during both in-gym and in-home/garage training and began following him on Instagram before awaiting From world-renowned strength and physique coach, Bret Contreras-"The Glute Guy", Glute Lab is the most comprehensive lower body training system on the market. I first discovered Bret Contreras through his Youtube channel and purchased his first book, Strong Curves, in January 2014. I went through the beginner, intermediate and advanced programs in Strong Curves about 3-4 full times from 2014-2019 during both in-gym and in-home/garage training and began following him on Instagram before awaiting the release of this book in August 2019. And I have absolutely fallen in love with Contreras as a coach. "There is no universal way to perform movement"....I think one of the best things Contreras has done for me as a coach myself is to allow me to see the bigger picture- to fit movement to peoplesʻ bodies...to see how best they move with all types of variations...some exercises simply just do not work well for the skeletal anatomy of individuals for ROM and movement mechanics, but others do...pointing your feet slightly outward or widening your stance can make you FEEL 100% more engaged with your own body. Contreras had made me a master at curiosity of my own body and has truly helped me "embrace my genetics to fall in love with the training process". I have been sitting with Glute Lab for this entire last year and it is my #1 training bible for everything lower-body related. Contreras speaks to me as a coach because he "does not pretend to have all of the answers. [He] remains curious and does his best to think outside the box...If someone comes up with something better [he] will embrace it." He gives you 100% of what he has been currently implementing and learning with his strength and physique clients, within his own training (the guy can deadlift 635 lbs....) and from the large body of up-to-date research and journals (as well as his own research). He is the full package and brings the full package to this book. It is easy to read, organized well and has fantastic diagrams and photographs of real women in the industry. You will not be disappointed- this book will change and enhance so much about how you train yourself and your clients! I now have my 76 year old client doing weighted glute bridges and her lower back has never felt better. GET THIS BOOK! READ THIS BOOK! KEEP THIS BOOK IN YOUR TRAINING BAG! "At the end of the day, you are your own physique artist...strength and physique training is a 24 hour endeavor. You have to train smart...sleep, eat well, and avoid activities that night compromise performance." "We must cover our bases and target all three mechanisms by performing a variety of exercises, loads, and rep ranges at varying levels of effort. I call this the shotgun approach." "Focus on the things you can control (body composition, muscular development, exercise selection, diet, mindset, sleep, stress management." "Remember, exercise is a movement and movement is a skill...continue to master technique with every session." "You have to listen to your body on a day-to-day basis and a lift-by-lift basis...roll with it and make the necessary adjustments...you are rarely going to feel perfect, but understand that you are stronger than you think." "Not all Volume is created equal." "You have a lifetime of weight training ahead of you, so donʻt be afraid to experiment along the way..." "For advanced lifters strength training becomes a juggling act. To get stronger and reach your physique goals you have to focus on certain areas of your training while maintaining the other areas of your training." "Absorb what is useful, discard what is not, and add in what is uniquely your own." -Bruce Lee

    Really good book with scientific explanation on all things regarding glute training. It gets quite repetitive in some parts but you can easily flip through those pages. Last part has detailed explanation on every single exercise. Be prepared for some ego comments on the author being "the most experienced person on the subject" I'm sure he his but I don't know if I needed so many reminders of it.

    Thanks to the techniques in this book, I could adjust my workout schedule and grow my glutes in 3 months from an absolute beginner level. I love the excellent body anatomy explains.
