Maximum hypertrophy #1

This workout makes use of the three mechanisms that drive muscular hypertrophy: muscle damage, mechanical loading, and metabolic stress. The heavy front squats load the gluteus maximus in a stretched position, creating muscle damage. The large volume of hip thrusts provides the necessary dose of mechanical loading. The high-rep, short-rest back extensions help finish the workout with a pump, causing a high level of metabolic stress.

Front squats: 3 sets x 5 reps with 3 mins rest

Hip Thruster barbell hip thrusts: 5 sets x 8 reps with 2 mins rest

Back extension: 2 sets x 15 - 20 reps with 1 min rest

Let us know how you got on with the workout on the Hip Thruster Facebook page
