What are some good resources to grow a booty at home? are there any guides or tips to do this?
Diana Ruiz has a home guide. I used her gym guide and got amazing results!

Bret Contreras has a home version of Strong Curves. If you look at 3rd nested reply to the first comment someone made a spreadsheet for it. I've done his advanced strong curves before and it was really good, so I'm sure his home version is too.

This area will improve mainly by diet. For a lot of women it is the last fat to go.

However, exercises I like doing that hit that area are good mornings, sumo deadlifts, and Romanian deadlifts. You want to get a good stretch out of the top of your hamstrings and overall glutes.

Agreed with notyourcupoftea. I naturally have a large butt and thighs and my butt kind of just becomes one with the back of my thighs and it's annoying. I've finally achieved some roundness and hamstring definition after like 5 years of lifting due to losing a large amount of body fat which revealed all the muscle definition beneath. I'd also recommend if you don't already to have a hamstring and glute focused day in your work out split and work on going heavy and progressive overload. I feel like they've responded the best to that.

thanks guys.
I had no idea it had most to do with diet, but I guess that makes the most sense. I have most of my fat in the back of my legs, but my quads are rock hard? So weird. Last night I figured that going heavy makes sense because going light hasn't done me any good obviously lol

I don't know if this is the right thread but just wanted to share that I bought Hanna Öberg's guide, the Get Lean Stay Healthy to kind of break from Powerlifting and hopefully lose some weight. And I have to say, I'm on day 2 and I can barely move.
Sorry for what I say when I'm hungry.

I feel like a total idiot. Turns out Omar Isuf seems like the rest of them when it comes to his supplement line, Ouroboros Nutrition. It's been a week since I got an order confirmation but no shipping so I emailed CS to find out. What I found instead are people on the Ouroboros instagram complaining that it's been X months since they placed their order and CS hasn't gotten back to them. Same on FB. There's not much engagement and the last post was some 8 weeks ago. I'm disappointed since they were perfectly happy to take my money.

Has anyone had any experience with Omar's company?

My bf has a playstation and a VR set that we almost never used until his brother showed him some fitness games. I'm loving it! I'm doing "boxing" classes or "slashing boxes" kind of game and been burning extra kcals like crazy, and having fun. Is anyone here doing those as well? Any games you could recommend?

Well, she has been doing a lot more challenging workouts lately since she's been training with Mark Carroll.

Can you give an example of a workout provided?
I am looking for a new workout guide and really have no idea where to find a good one.

Sure, today I'm on day 3 of Week 2 (I stopped 2 weeks after Week 1 because of a) work travel and b) got sick but am back now).
Today it will be focused on back, shoulders, biceps and chest. There's warmup on the crosstrainer, then 6 sets of deadlifts, then 4 sets lat pulldown; then superset of DB arnold press and lateral raises; then incline chest prest, then DB incline back flyes superseted with incline bicep spider curls, and another superset of abs cable crunches and planks. Finishing the workout with cardio (20 min of sprints and walking).
There are videos on how to perform the exercises, which is great for me, I'm always confused with these "body building" exercises.

If I would point anything negative about the program is that it's stated that each workout is 1h but that's impossible, I take at least 1.5h

(sorry for some grammar errors, I'm at work sneaking my reply)

If you check out Hanna Öberg's YouTube channel, you can find her free and intense workouts. www.youtube.com/channel/UCBeKQoyinCzc6JdS_47nHKw

I don't personally follow guides, but I've heard good things about Bret Contreras' Strong Curves program for glute-building. I also recommend the Nike Training Club app which is free.

OOOH! I second the Nike training club app. When I can't make it to the gym before or after my shifts, I can substitute with a workout from it in my basement. Their ab workouts are great to follow along with and are quite varied too!

What’s a good app or watch that can track run distance, pace, etc. I’ve been using map my run by under armor but I kind of hate carrying my phone on runs and would prefer a watch. Also just like hearing other app suggestions in case the only economical thing right now is to continue using my phone

If you hate carrying your phone I’d get a running belt to keep it in. I know the Nike run club app has an option to read out your pace every mile/km or half mile and tell you all that. I’ve found running belts much comfier than an arm band. If you want a watch you can’t go wrong with a garmin. You can get an old one for under $100 like the forerunner 25. I have one and it still works fine for pace/distance. And of course you can go as fancy as you want. You can go older but I think that’s about when they added bt connectivity from watch to phone.

Strava is a good app. Garmin makes great watches and the low-end ones are pretty affordable and work fine (forerunner 25, vivoactive line, etc). If you want something with a lot of fancy features at a better price than Garmin, Coros makes good watches as well.

Any recommendations on a good reliable scale? I have weigh ins for competitions so I need it to be accurate-ish. :)
