She explained: “There are many reasons why you may not be seeing results with your glutes.
“You can put in lots of work but not reap the benefits. Training has got to be done effectively and smartly.
“You need rest, to let the glutes recover in between sets, and you don’t need 20 ‘glute building’ isolation exercises either!”
She said there are two aspects to your building journey, with training and lifestyle.
And while she shared her tips, she also explained the common mistakes people make with building glutes.
Lauren said you might not be progressively overloading in your training or have a poor diet and lacking sleep.
She added: “Fixing all of these is your first step to success.
“But, it’s also important to remember than your genetics could be causing your inability to grow.
“This cannot be helped, but it doesn’t mean you can’t make progress still – you’ll just have a limit that others may surpass.”
Also the combination you perform can impact growth as she recommends thrust/bridge movement and squats with lunges.
She concluded: “So, glute growth will come when: You’re consistent with your training. You find the exercises that work for you.
“You work on your strength. You have a set program. You concentrate on good form. You complete your sets close to failure.
“You eat sufficient protein and calories. You rest enough between each set and session. You get enough sleep
“You listen to your body everyday and respect that. Don’t overdo it, be consistent, enjoy your training and focus on you.”
