Tammy Hembrow Workout

Tammy Hembrow is an Instagram phenomenon. She’s a serial entrepreneur, brand ambassador and a mother of two. Tammy represents brands like Women’s Best, Gymshark and Protein World. She completely understands her followers, giving snippets of lifestyle thrown in with booty and product placement (see below), this has allowed her to develop a following in the millions because of it. We’ve taken note and decided to take a look at the Tammy Hembrow workout. Most notably, the 8 week booty guide.

Tammy Hembrow Workout – 8 Week Booty Guide

To quote Tammy ‘This program is designed for anyone wanting to build a bigger, round, toned, and lifted butt. A lot of women think it’s impossible to go from pancake booty to a strong perky butt, but that’s exactly what I’ve done and that’s exactly what this program is designed to help you do.’

This guide is split up into 2 sections, weeks 1-4 ad 5-8 with a workout split solely focused on lower body sessions, training 3 days per week.

Tammy includes recommendations for cardio and nutrition but only reference to a calorific surplus to build mass, and doesn’t really delve any deeper into it.

The guide (which you can find by clicking the image to the right) splits into exercise with images showing you form recommendations and open descriptions of each exercise. She also recommends leaving one rest day between workouts. I’d suggest leaving even more as you’ll see below.

Our Review of the Tammy Hembrow Workout

Tammy Hembrow’s booty building guide is full of volume, and at first glance, each workout would take well over an hour, potentially an hour and a half if you partake in some cardio. So they’re not for those that have time sensitive training. You are also hitting legs 3x per week, there are snippets of lower back and core, but you’ll begin to see imbalances. That’s not such a bad thing if your goal is to build booty, but overall, probably training legs twice a week is enough.

The nature of this being a downloadable PDF rather than a tailored programme makes it non specific to the user. It is solely geared towards ladies who would like to build their butt. However, some females may respond better to lifting heavier weights in a lower rep range, some may find that hypertrophy exercises in the 12 rep range do nothing for them. So really, analysing your reaction to the workouts and varying them will only leave you in good stead. I personally would be worn out after 3-4 exercises let alone 6 per training day for large muscle groups with compounds.

What I would say is that this guide is great for the instagrammer who has seen Tammy and wants to grow her butt, but hasn’t really trained before. By hitting legs 3x a week, you’ll definitely notice a difference, but learn how your body responds, make changes and definitely incorporate some other work into your week.
