Let me say, that this post is not sponsored in any way. Since starting this program after having Benji (my second baby & c-section) I have been crazy about it! Its so simple to use and effective, that I just had to share my love for it. If ya don't believe me, check out the thousands of killer #bbgtransformations . This workout program is a no gimmicks, real deal for everybody,no matter your fitness level.
Here are some of my personal results from the program ( none altered in any way):
What is Kayla Itsines BBG workout?
Specifically, Kayla's BBG workouts consist of 3 resistance circuit style workouts & 3 cardio sessions, plus 2 recovery days a week in addition to healthy eating.These workouts can be completed at home or the gym, with little to no equipment. I do my workouts in the garage at home!
The resistance workouts include targeted workouts for legs, arms, abs, & full body. The workouts include two different circuits, each with their own set of four exercises, which each have a required amount of reps.
So a typical workout/circuit may look like this: 15 push-ups, 15 burpees, 20 step ups, and 20 squats. You'll repeat this circuit as many times as you can within seven minutes, of course rocking it out at a pace that is comfortable for you. You'll then get a break and start circuit two, which will include a new set of four exercises. When circuit two is complete, you'll get another break and then complete each circuit one more time. You'll then stretch and cool down. Trust me when I say,this makes for a killer butt kickin' in under 30 minutes!
The cardio sessions consist of HIIT High intensity interval sessions ( sprints, boxing, running) & LISS Sessions (walking, swimming, cycling). These cardio sessions can be as short or long as you like, for instance I count walking with the kids and dogs as a LISS.
As you progress through the program, the workouts change and amp up to keep challenging you.This is a great way to keep your body and metabolism from essentially plateauing and is so refreshing because its not the same ole' workout on repeat. Plus, its so cool to see how much stronger you get over time by pushing yourself a little harder.
Within the app, is a progress tracker that will keep track of your results. Remember, the only person your competing with is yourself and this is a great way to track and see all your hard work.
How long are the workouts?
Each workout is 28-30 minutes. Probably my favorite part of this whole program because I can get a butt kicking sweat sesh in quickly while the kids nap or before everyone wakes, and its still super effective.
The cardio workouts can be as long or short as you like or have time for.
Do I Need Equipment?
It's not a requirement to do this program. The great thing about this program is the workouts can be done and modified with or without equipment. My "at home gym" consists of two sets of ancient dumbbells, a jump rope, yoga mat with holes and kettlebell- trust me it ain't glamorous,but it gets the job done. Honestly, you can get creative with equipment and modifications. I use a cooler as a weight bench and a chair pushed against the wall for step ups, box jumps etc. Obviously, be safe but there's no need for top of the line gym equipment here!
Is this a diet program?
It's not. However, within the app there is a food and nutrition tracker that will give you access to healthy meal planning, shopping lists, recipes etc. Good nutrition goes hand in hand with exercise, and you'll see great results when you implement this with the workout program.
What if I'm a beginner or have never worked out ?
This is a great place to start. This program and app are basically fool proof. You have the option of having a schedule that will tell you what workouts to do on what day. Also, during each workout there is a person on the screen showing how each specific excercise is done. If you tap on them a written explanation will appear, as well as modifications/options.
As far as extra modifications options go, the "bbg community" option is a great resource, as well as google!
What workout program do you specifically do?
So within the Sweat App there are four different programs. A yoga style workout, BBG with Kayla Itsines, Power with Kelsey Wells and Post-Pregnancy also, with Kelsey Wells.
I started specifically with Kaylas BBG program and around my 50th week of that, I started to incorporate Kelsey Well's power program, which is more weight training based.
How much does it cost?
It's $20.00 a month. Less than my gym membership and worth every penny! Its like having a personal trainer at your fingertips. Also, there's seriously no gimmicks to it- if you decide you want to cancel, just unsubscribe and that's that!
You can do a free 7 day trial,or if you're a first timer shoot me a dm or email
( email@example.com) and within my app I can send you a link to try it out for a month FREE!
I hope this was a helpful look into why and what the BBG program is I've been using! If you have anymore questions please feel free to reach out. Also, if you try it out I'd love to know what you think!
At the end of the day, just move ya body & strive to be the happiest, bad mamma jamma version of yourself!
