5.0 out of 5 stars You can build glutes! At any age! Transform your physique!
By Chrisanna Marie Northrup on September 30, 2019
Bret’s book will transform you mentally, physically, and help you achieve the physique of your dreams!
I have been training with Bret for nearly 2 years. I didn’t even start physique training until I was 46 (pics on left) and now 48 years old I became a pro fitness competitor. All because of Bret’s strength training and glute building methods. No crazy supplements, no steroids, no magic pill.... just following his methods and this book! It’s a must read. I have never had so much life balance and happiness in my life. This book also touches on nutrition, which is key to building muscle. Bret is one of the most brilliant and passionate people I know and his book shares all of his research that works!! My photos say it all. But this book and achieve anything you desire.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Buy For Glute Training!
By David Iglesias on September 17, 2019
This is by far the most informative book on glute training out there! 608 pages detailing training splits, biomechanics, anatomy, dieting strategies, breaking plateaus, and so much more. Not only is the information backed by research, but you have Bret Contreras' 20+ years of personal training experience poured in here as well!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book on training you will find
By Gunnar Jacobsen on October 23, 2019
After Arnold, no-one one has had a bigger impact on the weight training world than Bret Contreras. His invention and popularizing of the hip thrust exercise, and of glute training in general, has radically changed whats going on inside gyms around the world. Not just for women; even the guys have caught on now. At my gym the hip thrusters are now being used by bikini competitors, male bodybuilders and StrongMen competitors alike.

That said, don't fall into the trap of thinking that the "Glute Guy" only knows glute training. Contreras does active research on training in general, and his general teachings has relevance for all muscle groups. The book is a well of information, containing both theory and practical advice, and even though it goes enough in depth to satisfy even fitness nerds like me, it is written in a very accessible style.

If you're at all interested in glute training, the book is worth buying for the chapter with exercise descriptions / tips alone. It covers all glute exercises you can think of, as well as general lower body exercises like squats with variations, deadlifts with variations, lunges with variations, etc. But that is only a small part of the book; it also contains theory about what makes muscles grow, about diet, and even lays out complete training programs, which is something many training book authors often skimp on.

I suppose what best sums up how good I think the book is, is the fact that I've ordered 18 more copies; one for each of my coaching colleagues. :)

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on October 2, 2019
The book itself is an astounding resource for strength training and seeing as it's quite pricey, it was a bit of a treat, so I was disappointed when it arrived damaged. The delivery box was fine so I'm assuming it was packed like this? Bit rubbish.
