“Today I did the routine as promised. The pic attached was just a warm up weight to check form (I wanted to make sure my back didn’t round at all, still a little tight).
I modified it a little as because as I stated there are no machines where I train.
This is the first time I have had a strict focus on glutes in a routine and i loved it!
By the time I finished the one leg bridges my ass was on fire. That’s a feeling I very rarely have experienced with other routines and I wasn’t even half way through!
I have done Sumo Deadlifts before but usually with more emphasis on strength not isolation. I have pulled 495 lbs in a sumo stance before but with the lower weight and high reps again I found my muscles burning. Going back to the rack for more squats when fatigued is not something I would usually do but again with the emphasis being Isolation I kept the weight slow and controlled. I would definitely recommend the routine to anyone looking to take their training to the next level. The wide stances require a lot of flexibility which will benefit the lifter in other movements as well. Stretching is definitely a factor and should probably be emphasized more with a routine like this. Thanks for routine, I’m already looking forward to doing it again! -Nathan
