The program encourages you to do certain exercises in quick succession. My only thought on the order is that I have a feeling you should always do the first exercise first. Fat Girl Gets Fit: Thank you for this in depth response, I very much appreciate it and I’ll keep your point re: I’ve previously done SL 5×5 for about a year and enjoyed it, but found my parallel barbell squat form was frighteningly off and I became discouraged and quit lifting weights for the past 5 months.

Most expensive book I own!!

The last time I strictly followed a program I saw progress so quickly in my upper body but it seems a bit slower this time. Strong Curves “Bootyful Beginnings” questions: Use of this site constitutes acceptance of our Beginning Agreement and Privacy Policy. I sometimes do banded hip thrusts at home, before heading over to the gym which is a 5 min walk away.

Many of the exercises in Bootyful Beginnings are exercises that seem silly to do at body-weight, like box squats, glute bridges, and single leg romanian deadlifts. MeandYou 10 months ago Anyone done These? I agree to receive emails from the site. Personally I started adding weight because doing squats without weight was slowly killing my soul. From the sounds of things though, I think I’ll just go ahead and buy a copy.


Can I do these out of order?

I genuinely just want to make sure I’m getting everything right whilst following this program. I’m not sure if you read the book or just downloaded the PDF, Strong Curves is essentially a template.

Some things to look out for are hyperextending at the top of thrusts and bridges or rounding of the back in RDLs and squats. My knees would bend inwards, I had trouble lining my feet up correctly as one would always be more angled or farther forward, and dropping to parallel would inevitably, no matter what I did, end with me leaning forward and my knees passing my toes. I actually did the exercises in order as written, but I did them as straight sets.

Lots of you tube videos to demonstrate. I think the point is to start the workout with the most important thing in this program, glutes. Tweaks will need to happen sometimes. I found it worked well for me. My upper body really came in well too.

You can’t help the hopeless. I know that alternating sets is similar to supersets but don’t really know too much about alternating. I think that is the case, if in doubt ask Brett. Can someone give me a simple explanation of why super sets are so beneficial?


I know DOMS aren’t everything and don’t indicate progress, but it would just be nice to feel something in my glutes a few days after a workout.

Started week 6 of bootyful beginnings today and thought I would share a very minor progress pic 🙂

My gym is 24 hours and constantly busy as it is based in booyful student area. Especially as I’m working glutes at least 3 x a week. This is why you should get the book.

It tends to be the glute bridges and glute marches where I feel it a lot in my lower back and hammies. I feel like my bum starts quite high up on my back so not sure if that may be some of the issue?

I never do the supersets, because yeah I go to a small gym. Also the rep ranges for things might be different, in a different order. I’d probably not superset barbell squats with another lower body movement.
