Here are a few notes to help you get started right away:

Your Program

All workouts can be found in the top menu bar under the Your Program tab. There you will find your Full Body Workouts and Optional Glute Workouts. New workouts are added to the site every 4-weeks. You can also view all of your workouts for the month in the Dashboard.

New Starter Workouts

If you are beginning the program this week, you may choose to start with the Main Workouts or the Basic Workouts.

Optional Glute Workouts

Booty by Bret offers additional and optional Glute Workouts for members who prefer to train more than three days per week. If desired, please choose 1-2 workouts from the Optional Glute Workout selection to complete your workout week.

Please note: The Main Workouts in booty by Bret are highly efficient and additional workouts are not necessary.

Exercise Library

Please be sure to review Bret's notes and instructional videos every month before starting your new set of workouts.

Detailed demonstrations of the exercises featured in the Workouts can be found in the Exercise Library.

Booty by Bret is meant to be implemented as a standalone program. Given how difficult the workouts are, Bret does not recommend that you perform other weight lifting workouts at the same time. Ample recovery time is an important component of seeing progress in the gym.

The Booty by Bret program can be completed with little to no equipment. Each month we will outline three options, choose which option best suits you and the equipment you have access to:

Option A: Fully equipped gym

Choose this option if you have access to a fully equipped commercial or home gym.

Option B: Dumbbells and bands

This is a great option if you only have access to limited equipment.

Option C: No equipment at all

Booty by Bret can still be performed with no equipment, for this option we will mainly utilize bodyweight exercises.

Booty By Bret members achieve amazing results utilizing either option A, B or C. However, option A (a fully equipped commercial or home gym) provides the greatest potential for long term progression. You may choose different options per exercise based on your available equipment, but we still always suggest primarily opting for option A where possible. If A is not possible then opt for option B. If B is not possible then opt for option C.

This degree of flexibility is offered so you can still make progress with the equipment you have, and is also sometimes utilized by members who find a particular option uncomfortable, painful or otherwise impractical.

Some members choose to build up their equipment over time, starting with bands and gradually adding more items. 

If you’re choosing option A programming, the following equipment is required:

Power rack or squat stands.

Adjustable bench.

Barbell with plates and collars.

Dumbbells.Squat sponge.

Chin up bar.

Glute Loop or another mini band.

Place to hip thrust (bench, aerobics steps, Glute Bench, Thruster, etc.).

Balance pad (for kneeling and Nordic Ham Curls).

These are common pieces of equipment and you should be able to find them in most fitness facilities.
