    Booty Builder question

    I'm confused by the instructions on Booty Builder. 20 wide squats x 4 sets in total - does that mean I have to do 4 sets of 20 wide squats for a total of 80 squats over all? Or am I splitting 20 squats into 4 sets of 5 squats each? Thanks in advance!!!

    I always read it as 80 total. Do 20 moves 4 times. Do 80 moves in 4 groups of 20.

    Even if I'm wrong, more is always more. 80 squats builds more booty than 20 squats. Approximately 4 times as much booty.

      For that one it sounds like 80 total however... doing reduced workout are still great; they'll let you know where your weak points are for any given motion and build confidence after you recover quickly (rather than pushing for burnout).

      If I'm feeling the pump and there is ambiguity, I'll do more reps (especially in the case where it's like do 20x where it is a one-sided exercise like a punch; I'll sometimes just do 20 per side instead). If I'm tired or feel like I'm about to die I try to scale the workout down to Level I or even just call it a learning experience at one set. Constantly fighting regret for not working out "hard enough" despite working out every day lol; gotta keep that in mind and go for the distance.

        yes but I have wondered about this workout too. 80 squats total during one circuit. However, when you click on the sets there are 7 squares to check. So you do 80 exercises for each thing, rest and do it 7 more times? What are your thoughts on this?

          It looks updated to have 4 set squares for me (maybe it's loading differently but it's also possible it was updated). I'd use the toggles to track your progress of each exercise, so 20x4 you'd use 4 toggles to track up to 80 reps then reset them and go on to next exercise. Bottom half of page would only utilize first 2 set toggles before resetting (or completing).

            My 2 cents: This is one of those few “classic workouts” that Darebee has: where you complete all 4 sets of one exercise before going on to the next exercise.
            The set markers are for the sets you are doing for that exercise. So that when you are finished with the 4th exercise in the workout, you’re just done with the whole workout.
            The last two exercises in this one, have you just doing 40 reps on each leg for each exercise, that counting as “2 sets” for each exercise. So, you would only use 2 of the set markers for those.
            Hopefully, between all of our answers, it’ll be more clear!😉 I just did this workout, and although it’s a level 2 difficulty, it sure did slaughter me!!

              Thanks for the help! I'm not sure that I'm up for 80 squats in a day yet, but I might try going down to 10 reps of each x 4 sets. Every little bit helps, right? Thanks again!

                No, there are no sets for a full circuit involved. It is a standard option in the workout sheets. If you finished one circuit you are done.

                You do:
                40 squats
                20 sec rest
                40 squats
                20 sec rest
                40 squats
                20 sec rest
                40 squats

                next exercise with same pattern. After finishing all 4 exercises you are done.
