"How often should I train my glutes?" is by far the most common question I receive from my followers. The simple answer is 3 times per week. The more complex answer is 2-6 times per week depending on 7 important factors. The most important of these factors is genetics, but exercise selection, volume, load, effort, intent, and specialization all play a role as well.

An individual could see great results training glutes twice a week or six times a week depending on their physiology and how they structure their plan. In this video, I provide you with everything you need to know in order to structure your program as optimally as possible.
