I've been lifting heavy for about a year and a half, mainly to build up my glutes and quads. I've brought my hip measurement up from 34.5" to 38 3/4" (So close to 39!!) while bringing my waist measurement down from 26" to 24". I'm a bit obsessed with the hourglass figure so.
My main lifts are barbell hip thrusts (the barbell hip thrust is my main glute lift- I've been reverse pyramiding sets of 8 from 305 and really burning out with these), modified back extensions (sets of 8 with a 45lb plate in which you don't over-arch your lumbar [use your glutes and hammies to pick the load up]), kick backs (sets of 8 w/85lbs on the smith machine because I have no reverse hyper), elevated FRONT squats (sets of 8 at 95lbs [my levers SUCK for squatting, I have long ass legs and the shortest torso imaginable]), leg press (sets of 8 at 225), lunges (sets of 16 walking lunges with 35lb dumbbells), and leg extensions (reverse sets starting from a set of 8 at 100lbs).
Body Fat- (unsure, I think around 16-17%)
Thanks for checking out my progress! It's never enough and I swear I'll never be satisfied. Happy hip thrusting to you all!
