I am going to focus on other workouts, and this week I am going to run at the beach on Thursday for sure, and maybe on Saturday. I ran last Saturday and it felt amazing, my thighs felt so thick, my mood improved, I was just feeling awesome.

I also got the yoga schedule at my yoga, perhaps I will take a class this week. There used to be a very nice black teacher before, but I guess she quit, because I don't see her name on the schedule, which is too bad because she taught a really early class and I love yoga early in the morning.


So many questions...

After a year you should be seeing some results.  How often do you weight train?  How much cardio do you do regularly?  How much weight are you using? Too much cardio and not not enough strength training may be contributing to the lack of results. Just doing tones of cardio, depending on how it's done may cause your body to lose overall muscle mass.  Another thing is, if you are trying to build the muscle you need sufficient protein in your diet, so do you think that may be an issue?

Are you doing any other kinds of resistance training and have you noticed changes anywhere?  You want to ensure your entire body is balanced PLUS there are other types of workouts that help your glutes other than squats.

did you:
-switch up your routine every few weeks or were you squatting for a year straight?
-increase your resistance/weights once you got stronger?
-consume enough protein and calories to see growth?
-properly activate your glutes?
-have good form?
-give yourself adequate rest days to avoid over-training?

maybe squats just aren't for you (there's so many other exercises that can target the glutes as well as if not better than squats imo) but it seems odd that you wouldn't see any progress whatsoever

The glutes are a muscle.. Like all muscles they grow with a protein and calorie surplus

So if you weren't eating to support muscle growth and were eating to promote weight loss, odds are that is where you fuccked up..

Did hit yesterday and abs

Back and calves today. My left calf is marginally bigger than my right and I can it's insertion point.. Can't exactly see it on my right

Genetics also determine how a specific muscle group will respond to strength training
