Bret Contreras has become known in the strength and conditioning industry as the Glute Guy because of his expertise in helping clients develop strong, shapely glutes. As the former owner of Lifts Studio in Scottsdale, Arizona, he has worked closely with hundreds of clients ranging from sedentary people to elite athletes, and he invented a glute-strengthening machine called the Hip Thruster.
Bret currently trains figure competitors, writes programs for clients from all over the world, and consults for various professional sport teams. He is the author of the bestselling book Bodyweight Strength Training Anatomy and co-author of Strong Curves: A Woman’s Guide to Building a Better Butt and Body.
In this episode, we talk about why corrective exercises do not work, why a qualified strength coach is more important than a rehab specialist, how to find a strength coach that understand proper progressions for injuries, why strength training is so much safer and healthier than being weak, and more.
