Here are nine different instructional videos:

Hip Thrust



Band Hip Rotation

Back Extension

Glute Ham Raise

Box Squat

Rack Pull

Bodyweight Hip Thrust Variations

    Hi Bret,
    Any plans for a DVD set? I learn best watching your YouTube videos. When is your new ebook coming out? Thank you for all the great info!

  • David Ratcliffe says:

    Thanks for all the excellent content, Bret. You’ve been an unwavering resouce for top-notch information, not to mention a fantastic role model. The glute guy has been elevated to strength diety for many.

    Hey Bret,
    Thanks a lot for this post it’s really made me go back and examine my squat and deadlift form. A quick question for you:

    How do you know how high the bar should be off the ground in a deadlift? I’m 5’7″ and using 35lbs plates I can deadlift around 250-275lbs, but if I use the taller 45lbs plates I can deadlift close to 300lbs (because of the reduced range of motion). Are there any rules-of-thumb for how high the bar should be off the ground for taller or shorter people? Most guys seem to just accept the height of the 45lbs to be the standard, but I’m a little shorter then average. Any thoughts on this?


    • Bret says:

      Lucas – Just based on “tradition,” I’d say you should deadlift with 45 pound plates most of the time. Some of the time, you should deadlift with more ROM, and some of the time you should deadlift with less ROM. For example, you could do conventional and sumo deadlifts 60% of the time, deficit deadlift 20% of the time, and rack pull 20% of the time.

    I recently deadlifted because I want to improve my hamstring strentgh, but I do not feel it when I do them. Only in the lower back
    Things to consider:* I am really flexible all around.
    * I know my form was good because ihad two people analyze it as I was doing it.

    Do you have any suggestions on how to improve my hamstring strength or how many sets n reps I shoud do with the deadlift to feel it? Today I found out I can go up to 225 ( my weight is 150)

    Please reply back.

    i recently started deadlifting because i want to strenthen my hamstrings, but i do not feel it in my hamstrings, noticeably in the lower back (soreness. not an aching sensation)

    things to consider: i am really flexible, im 5,6,150lbs, not a very good squatter most ive ever done was 245 full squat. and today i did sumo deadlifted one rep of 225lbs this was to find out what my max was since im new to the deadlift but the previous week i was doing 135lbs for 3 sets of 6.

    im trying to get faster in sprints (i do hip thrust like crazy) but i need a more dominant hamstring exercise. can you lend ma any advice?

    • Bret says:


      I trust that you’re form is decent, but if I looked closely at it I might be able to find something by looking closely at your lumbar spine, hips, knees, etc. At any rate, if you want to focus on hammies move to the RDL! If you want, film a video and post it here and I’ll take a look at it.
