Alright so after two years on Insta I’ve caved with a ‘glute progress’ pic 🤣
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It was all going so (relatively) professional 🤣🤣
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But seriously though, I’ve always considered myself pretty quad dominant and as I’ll likely be returning to the gym in 2025 with a flat ass and a lockdown belly here’s how I managed to grow some semblance of glutes...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I used to train one body part per day, so not in this order but back, shoulders, arms, glutes and hams, quads and calves. In between lockdown 3 and 4 I completely changed up my routine and alternated quads and calves and glutes and hams every other day, sticking in upper body in-between those days. I also didn’t take a rest day apart from Christmas Day with the occasional double train. Definitely wouldn’t recommend, rest is important but I was paranoid about another lockdown (funny that) 🤣 but the take-home is, the stimulus was there.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I ate... a lot. Yes I lost core definition but I felt the compromise was worth it. Calorie surplus for muscle gain (may have not all been intentional 🐷).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I started lifting heavy. All that fuel gave me energy to hit aaall sorts of PBs, which was fun for me but not so much for my old lady knees 👵🏻
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I spent a lot of time focusing on hams, the big ass, little leg BBL look is just a bit odd looking I think. Thick thighs and all that. I really like good mornings, they’re a nice stretch and they just seem to work for me, even lightweight.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I changed my supplement routine to everything @chevron_nutrition_uk lots of their whey isolate and starting integrating an intra, which I hadn’t bothered with previously. I’d recommend their orange flavour. Use my code SAMANTHA10 for 10% off, you’re welcome 😇

And so concludes my longest ever Insta post. And it was about ass, go figure 🤣

Suffice to say 2020 negated the lube for most of us...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The past is a lesson, not a life sentence; so be brave enough to nurture the opportunities and the relationships that make you happy and distance yourself from those that don’t 🤓
