1 Super-Set to Pump up your Glutes

April 11, 2015 1 min read

  Recently, I started working on a plan to grow my glutes in the next year.  I mean, who doesn't want to have a curvy backside that fills out jeans, leggings, and looks great in a swimsuit.  Research shows that squats have the highest glute activation of any exercise, but to grow your backside you must incorporate the hamstrings as well.  This superset includes all the rear muscles as well as includes the quadriceps for an overall total leg workout that will have your lower half looking amazing in no time. Perform these exercises as a superset 3 times through.  Do 12 reps of each exercise before moving on to the next.  Rest 3 minutes between each super-set. Start with regular back squats which can be done as shown on a smith machine, in a regular squat rack, with your t-bar or sandbag.

Keep your back flat and push your glutes to the ceiling at the bottom of the movement.

The final exercise is the front squat.  Using the same weight as the straight leg dead-lifts place the bar along the front of your shoulders (across your delts).  The bar should be resting firmly on the front of your delts and your wrists should be lightly holding the bar.  Lower yourself down into a squat the same as the back squats pushing your glutes back as if sitting in a chair.

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. 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 4-5 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. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

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.
