P90X3 Challenge – Support + Accountability = RESULTS

Hi all! Its been such a long time since I’ve wrote a post I’ve almost forgot how to!

So I’ve finally decided Im going to give P90X3 a go. I’ve been doing mostly Body Beast to try and add some size. Love Body Beast, but my first love was P90X and I’ve had X3 since it came out. My wife actually did 90 days straight of X3 and got really good results! I’ll put up her before and afters at the end of this post.

As I was reading in the P90X3 Guide, I looked at the X3 Mass Program (theres also a Classic, Lean, and Doubles) and decided that’s what Im going to do next. I’ve personally gained some weight (which I wanted to do) with Body Beast and now I need to cut some of the body fat, so I thought what better program to help me do that than X3!

Where does the Challenge come in?

If you’ve read any of my post, then you’ll know I like to run what’s called Challenge Groups. They’re basically private groups that I create on Facebook and I hold you accountable along with the other people who have committed to take the Challenge! You see, research has shown that, support + accountability = RESULTS! I give you all that for free basically. There are only a few things you need to commit to in order to get a spot in my P90X3 Challenge. We’ll come back to that…

P90X3 in my opinion is a complete game changer for the fitness industry. Beachbody produces nothing but the HIGHEST quality in fitness and nutrition, but to me, Tony Horton delivers such a powerful punch with P90X3 because it hits on the entire body in such a way to get you in the absolute best shape and the best part is ANYONE can do this workout. It doesn’t matter if you’re

  • fat
  • skinny
  • old
  • young
  • in great shape
  • in no shape
  • a Pro Athlete
  • a runner
  • golfer
  • football player
  • the list goes on…

Bottom line, its for anyone who is willing to commit to it for 90 days.

How do you Commit to the P90X3 Challenge?

Its easy to commit. Here are some of the questions that I would ask you to find out what you want to accomplish.

Q: Why are you wanting to do this challenge?

Q: What does that mean to you? (“that” meaning your answer to the first question.)

Q: Are you willing to commit to change for the 90 days of the challenge? Specifically are you willing to try new things, new foods, and workout each week trying your best to not miss any workouts or the most important meal of the day?

You might be thinking…whats the most important meal of the day? Breakfast? Thats what I’ve always heard. Well kinda. Of course I don’t want you to miss breakfast, but Shakeology is specifically what Im referring to.

Don’t know what Shakeology is? Its the ABSOLUTE BEST THING YOU CAN PUT IN YOUR BODY!! Its you’re daily dose of dense nutrition. Check out what Tony says about Shakeology.

So this is what Im trying to say. Its a pretty big deal. Nowhere else are you going to get this amount of nutrition for your diet. This stuff is the foundation of being healthy and with all its added health benefits that makes it an absolute must to be in my P90X3 Challenge. Because this is an investment. And if Im going to invest my time with you for free, then I’ve got to know that you’re willing to invest in yourself!!

Yes thats right and it deserves to be repeated. You’ve got to be willing to invest in you!!

What if I don’t like the Taste?

This is my go to answer every time. Healthy foods including Shakeology sometimes takes a while for you to like. Why? Because healthy foods are 100% about being healthy, not tasting good. Not that they don’t taste good. I love the taste of healthy foods. But it may take a while for you to love the taste. Now don’t get me wrong. Shakeology is DELICIOUS! I like to tell people that “taste” is what’s gotten you to this point and now you’re asking me for help. You’ve got to be willing to retrain your brian and your taste buds. We should eat to survive, not because it taste good!!!

I want in the P90X3 Challenge. What do I do?

Well that part is pretty simple. In fact Beachbody is currently running a special on the P90X3 Challenge Pack. A challenge pack consists of the entire workout, fitness and nutrition guide, and your 1st month of Shakeology. The best part is you basically get Shakeology for half price!! Yep thats it. All you need to do is click on this link —> P90X3 Challenge and click a few more times to get the P90X3 challenge pack. On Sale this month for $180. Then just email me here –> Contact Me and simply write in the message body “I want in the X3 Challenge!!” and you’re in! We’ll set a time through email to connect with each other, and from there I’ll add you into the SUPER PRIVATE Facebook group. These groups are truly worth $1000’s of dollars. You just get so much support, and you get to connect with others going through the same thing as you, and sometimes you even get to inspire others. Its a great feeling! Don’t miss out on it! I can’t wait to hear from you!

Here’s my lovely wife. She still has some goals to meet. But its all about the journey and a lifestyle change. She’s tackling one day at a time and doing an awesome job!!

30 Minute Workouts for Men and Women

Holy cow its been a while since I’ve done a post!! Sorry about that. Holidays and just the normal winter running around has threw me off a little! Hey really quick before I go into all the workouts that men and women can do in 30 minutes, let me ask a favor of you. Is that cool? When you get done reading this post…would you mind leaving me a comment? Let me know if this was useful for you and click the share button! Thanks.

Ok so now on to the good stuff. The biggest question isn’t whether or not there are 30 minute routines you can do. Of course there is. The real question that most people want an honest answer to is…can I get in shape or stay in shape with only doing 30 minutes? The answer…YES! So before I loose your attention completely, I’ll list out below the workouts that are rated #1 for 30 minute workouts below that I’ll give you the scoop on how 30 minute workouts in some if not most cases can be more effective for you than an hour, and I’ll go into each listed workout a little to give you an idea of what they’re like. BUT remember, leave me a nice word or two in the comment box below!

30 Minute Workouts for Men and Women that are totally effective for anyone of any size, gender and experience.

Ok so 30 minutes a day HUH? Can it really help me shred this fat and look good? Yes! How? Study after study shows that the most dramatic body transformations happen in the first 30 minutes of exercise. Tony Horton’s goal in X3 was to find a way to use that window of opportunity to help people get ripped, P90X ripped, in just half an hour a day.

So lets just use P90X as an example. With P90X you have your first round of workouts, usually the first round is 30 minutes and then you repeat that in the second round to finish up your hour. So lets say most people burn out in the first 30 minutes and in the second round they need to have enough energy to make it through the workout but may have pushed to hard in the first round, so they are fighting against theirself.  Therefor, having 1 30 minute workout that men and women can do each day or 5 or 6 days a week showed that they are effectively burning  calories and get in amazing shape.

Of course if you’ve read any of my other post you know what Im going to say next…nutrition is a must. It goes hand in hand with getting that body that you want. And the important thing to remember is that its not going to happen over night. Consistent workouts and nutrition WILL bring consistent results. But you’ve got to work at it!

Now for those of you who PUSH hard for an hour or more each day, don’t hate me. Believe me, I love a good hour workout session. But lets face it. If you’re a single parent, a busy student, a busy parent, a busy business man/women or just don’t want to workout anymore than you have to, and you just want to be in shape and comfortable with your body, not pose for a magazine then a 30 minute workout IS the best solution and it does work!

Straight from Carl Diakelr (Beachbody Founder) “In the P90X3 test group with 40 participants and the average fat loss was 34%. This is unheard of!”

Check out and Ed and Tamara’s before and afters from the test group:

P90X3-ED-SUCCESS

P90X3-TAMARA-SUCCESS-STORY

 

Let me tell you a little about each workout:

P90X3: This workout of course it 30 minutes and is 6 days a week with an optional 7th day workout. If you need extra time to warm up you can select that option and then move on to the workout. The workout itself is just 30 minutes. So you can get in and out and be done. If you’ve never used a workout from Tony Horton then let me break it down. Those of you who have will know what Im talking about. Tony (at least to me) is hilarious. He uses humor through the entire workout so its not boring at all. A LOT of the moves are centered around you own body and weight. Lots of balance building moves and believe it or not that burns fat and builds muscle, more so than going to the gym and using machines. (He actually says that) There are pull ups, which you can modify that with bands if you don’t have a bar. Simple things like dumbbells, weighted balls or even a basket ball, resistance bands and just you. Tony is the modern day Arnold Schwarzenegger, at least in my eyes. He knows his stuff. I highly recommend this workout to anyone. You don’t have to do any of the previous P90X workouts to do X3. Its well balanced and has an awesome and easy to follow nutrition guide. Its a great mix of cardio, MMX and resistance workouts. Better than any gym in my book!

T25: Shaun T created T25. This dude doesn’t play around! Same scenario as X3. This is a 25 minute workout 5 days a week with a 3 minute cool down after each workout, so a total of about 28 minutes. Friday’s are whats called double days. So you do 2 25 minute workouts on Friday. It was a shocker for me when I got it. But I easily figured out on the Fridays that I only had 25 minutes to spare then I could make up the second workout on Saturday. The results weren’t hindered to my knowledge. The workout is I would say about 75% cardio. There are moves and workouts that use a light weight dumbbell or a resistance band. I love T25 durning that 90 days. Actually though, T25 is only a 60 day program with the option to get the Gamma series to extend it another 30 days. If you like lots of cardio, I recommend this workout. Again anyone can do this. All levels of fitness. I mean you gotta start somewhere right? X3 and T25 are great for starters to extreme fitness level. Good stuff.

BodyBeast: Im not sure it’s fare to put this workout in the short workout category but Im going to anyway. This particular is based on building muscle. Don’t let that fool you though. You can lose weight and tone up with this workout. And believe it or not its quit popular with the ladies. And you don’t have to fear, if you don’t want to get bulky but simply ton and create muscle this is a great workout. You do need equipment though. You can check out my BodyBeast page to see what all equipment you need or search for some related post for some more info. As far as time, during the first 4 weeks I think the workouts are around 45 to 55 minutes. During your Bulk phase (don’t worry about the name) the workouts are 28 to 35 minutes. So kinda short. Either way I love this program. In fact Im testing my own BodyBeast/P90X3 hybrid right now. More on that in a later post.

*21 Day Fix: What is 21 Day Fix? 21 Day Fix is THE fitness and nutrition program to help you lose up to 15 pounds in 21 days. Each workout is approximately 30 minutes a day, 7 days a week. The unique nutrition plan uses specifically portioned food storage containers that eliminate the guesswork from portion control – no weighing, measuring, or counting calories, carbs or points. If it fits in the container, you can eat it. And you’ll lose weight. When eaten in the right quantities, there are no foods that are off limits. Who can do the program? Everyone can do 21 Day Fix and get great results. Each workout has a modifier to show easier moves. The test groups included fit people as well as people with 100+ pounds to lose, to be sure that anyone could be successful with this program.

21-day-fix-ResultsOk so theres the scoop. There are plenty of resource here to help you make an informed decision. Of course when you get one of the awesome workouts from this sight, you get me as your personal Team Beachbody Coach for free!

If you want to turn fitness into a business, contact me and I’ll tell you all about how you can help people get healthy and fit, plus get paid for it. You don’t have to have experience or be in shape. You just have to be willing to learn and want to live a healthy lifestyle!

Have a great day! Good luck on your journey! I hope to hear from you! Don’t forget to click share!

What to Expect with P90X3

Expect the unexpected. Tony Horton is one crazy fitness guru! If you “brought it” in any of the other P90X versions, you better get ready to “Bring it” again! If your new to P90X altogether, thats ok too! As Im typing this, P90X3 still hasn’t hit the market…but I’ve got a few ideas of what I think X3 is going to be like.

P90X3_blog1

This is purely a guess, so if Im wrong don’t hold me to it! Since the release of FOCUS T25 Shaun T’s 25 minute a day, 5 days a week fitness program that’s great for anyone of any fitness level (Im currently in week 7 of this 10 week program and its AWESOME) I think that P90X3 is going to be the next competing workout. Through research and common sense, its been recognized that a lot of people can’t workout for a long period of time 6 days a week. Not that they don’t want to, or get in shape, but they are just truly busy people. I think Tony is going to create P90X3 for those people like Shaun T did with T25. You see, T25 uses very little equipment. Resistance Bands (that come free with the FOCUS T25 Challenge Pack) or dumbbells if you prefer those instead of bands,  in only a handful of the workouts. With P90X and P90X2 you need bands and/or dumbbells and a pull up bar at minimum. In all the group workouts I’ve done recently with Tony he has given new moves that you can do that will get you similar results with only the use of your body. To me, Tony is not a big Cardio style guy. Yes he has plenty of cardio workouts, so I’ll be surprised if you don’t need some sort of equipment in X3 but again thats just a guess.

So lets say Im wrong with the first guess. My next assumption for X3 would still be a workout thats less than an hour. P90X was the first of the series and will get you completely ripped and in great shape. You’re able to perform as an athlete, or at least close to it. X2 focuses on speed, balance and agility. Again really honing in on those athletic moves. So I feel like X3 will still follow that same outline, but in less time. Tony Horton is all about creating his workouts to be functional. Meaning simple moves based on the bodies everyday functions. Walking, balance, playing with your kids, yard work or physical functions of your job. Im sure bands and dumbbells will be an option in X3. Realistically you can take bands anywhere if you travel a lot and you can do so many moves with it, even simulate a pull-up.

What will come with P90X3

I can just about guarantee it will come with an awesome meal planner, as all of the Beachbody workouts do, of course a daily workout schedule, and if there is equipment, Im sure resistant bands will come with it also. You may have to purchase the P90X3 Challenge Pack, in order to get the bands for free, again if bands are needed. Challenge Packs are always your best buy with any Beachbody workout anyway. Challenge Packs always come with the entire workout program and your first monthly supply of Shakeology. If you’re not familiar with, I would take a moment to do so. If your going to invest in a workout, you need to invest in nutrition! Shakeology has all that the body needs in a single meal. Tony recommends daily use of it in all his workouts, as does Shaun T, Chalene Johnson, Debbie Siebers, and all the other Trainers at Beachbody. The best part is you end up saving about 30% off the price of the workouts and Shakeology when you get them together. Its just a no brainer to me. Shakeology has changed my life, along with the awesome workouts Beachbody provides!

So what ever the case may be, you can believe this…Tony is going to deliver an action packed workout that anyone, from any background, of any fitness level can do, from anywhere and your going to be guaranteed to get massive results if you can follow a simple nutrition guide and stick to the workout schedule.

Will P90X Get You Ripped?

Why do people still ask this question? Will p90x get you ripped? The simple answer is YES! It absolutely will! Why does P90X work so well? The answer: Muscle confusion, variety and nutrition. Total Package!

I was seriously thinking just the other day while driving home. Im truly in great shape. I mean fantastic shape. And Im not trying to toot my own horn. I think after all my hard work I deserve to be able to say that. I post pictures from time to time on facebook, and some of my gym rate friends even comment on my picture asking me how I get such solid abs because theres just ins’t there. While they are big, and have big muscles, and overall are in good shape, (im talking about the serious ones too) they still can’t get the abs. They’re in the gym 6 to 7 times a week and still can’t get there. Why? Again Im simply a believer in this, and it goes along with any workout. I personally think its 70% nutrition and 30% fitness. Now Im not saying they don’t eat well…let me break it down for you.

So where does P90X fit in to this?

P90X gets you ripped simply because its a total package. Like I said above, when I was driving in the car I was thinking to myself,” they really got it right with P90X!” The nutrition plan is a great guide for anyone! And yes I meant to say guide. No single person is the same. So one big book isn’t going to work for everyone. Thats what I like about the Nutritional Guide. It’s a great outline for you to start with. You can figure out what works best for you, and whats giving you the results you want. Most people just want to get in the best shape in the fasted amount of time possible. I can understand that…I once felt the same way. But once you get there, you’ve gotta start fine tuning it. Adjusting what your doing with your nutrition, adding things and taking things out so you can see where whats really working for you. And that’s where I am right now. I won’t lie. It was really hard for me to stick with the nutritional guide the first time I did P90X. I thought that’s what you had to do. And I fumbled through it. When I attended my P90X Certification class, I then found out what I just told you. The Nutritional Guide isn’t a perfect fit for everyone. You have to do what works best for you. Sometimes you may need less or even more food than what it calls for. Or you might need to substitute foods, due to variety at your grocery market. Either way, if your trying and using the guide the best you can, you’re on the right track!

How does the P90X Fitness Guide Work?

BodyBeast_P90X_Hybrid

So you know about the nutrition, now whats so great about the fitness side. I hate to repeat myself, but like I said above. Tony and the creators really got it right with this one! So for my body builder friends out there, listen up.  This is a true story. Remember when I said I posted pics on Facebook occasionally? Well just recently I posted this pic. This is what one of my buddies said; “yo homie message me your current diet. Just cant get my abs quite to the point yours are. They are very close but I do zero cardio.” Now he is in great shape. He has huge arms, chest, back, shoulders and a flat stomach. He’s a gym rat. I definitely give him respect for what he’s accomplished on his own. But I think he’s under a BIG misconception. Cardio is great, but really there is only like 2 workouts that are cardio workouts for each week with P90X. Plyo and Kempo and they really work in more ways than just cardiovascular. My personal opinion is the reason you get such incredible results is the combination of move throughout each week compounded throughout the 90 days. The important thing to remember, this isn’t a quick fix. While it will get you in great shape faster than anything else I’ve ever seen, keep this in mind. It’s a journey. A lifestyle. So take it just one day at a time! Enjoy the journey and stick with it. Remember that small consistent steps overtime will compact into big changes and its much easier to do than to make 1 big change drastically.

The P90X conclusion – Will P90X help me in my daily activities?

Watch this short, but awesome video with Tony Horton, P90X creator. While I know not all of us are Fire Fighters, at least you’ll be able to see that P90X is the real deal and that you can use it to train for some of the toughest jobs or you can train like those who have the toughest jobs. Really cool video!

What Supplements Should I Take with P90X?

Just very quickly people always ask what Supplement I take. I can assure you that Shakeology is a part of my daily intake! I can’t live without it! Tony Horton’s also. I would highly recommend it as a once-a-day meal replacement, or as your after workout shake. It has everything your body needs and if you have a lot of weight to loose, its gonna really be beneficial. You can find out more about Shakeology and its awesomeness here. I always recommend the P90X Challenge Pack because its less expensive. Saves you almost $80 in the end.

If you’re ready for a chiseled body, muscles and over all better health, then don’t leave this site without getting P90X!

If you just want P90X alone. <– This is ONLY the workout and Nutritional Guide

If you want P90X and Shakeology at a discounted price with free shipping consider the Challenge Pack. <– This is the Workout, Nutritional Guide and Shakeology, by far the best bang for your buck!

If you decide you want to add in Creatine, you can get it during your checkout process by adding it in from the Supplements page.

Body Beast vs Insanity

Category : Body Beast, Building Muscle, Insanity, Shakeology · (1) Comment · by Mar 27th, 2013

BodyBeast-vs-InsanityHere lately the the two HOTTEST workouts on the Beachbody market are Shaun T’s Insanity and Sagi Kalev’s Body Beast. To go along with that are popular questions comparing the two. So Im going to do a Body Beast vs Insanity break down. — I going to stick this in at the top also, (I usually put this at the bottom). If you have any comments please feel free to leave them! I love hearing your feedback and if I’ve helped you in your decision towards a workout, or you’ve gotten one from my site please share this with your social networks and/or leave a comment! — I’ve done both workouts. In fact right now Im trying to create a hybrid schedule to do both Body Beast and Insanity for a 90 day cycle. Comparing these two workouts is like comparing golf balls to base balls. Both are round, both are hit with an object, and both can travel a long distance. They sound very similar. Two completely different games though. Both workouts will leave you exhausted, sweaty, and will get you in great shape. The road to travel though is very, very different.

Insanity

It’s high impact interval training. Right out of the gate it seems like your going 110 mph. I remember when I first did Insanity the warmup kicked my but. You go straight into jogging in place to jumping jacks, to mountain climbers and jumping rope (a pretend jump rope) and then you do it again a little faster, then one more time as fast as you can. Then you stretch. Then you start your workout. Don’t let that scare you though! Insanity for me improved my endurance 100%. It’s always my favorite summertime workout because in the summer most people love being outside whether its working in the yard, playing sports or just messing around with friends or the kids out in the yard. After the first time I did Insanity I remember running in my first race, ever! It was a 10K race. I didn’t even know how long a 10K was. The friend that I was running with was making fun of me, telling me they were going to beat me. Well to make a long story short I ended up beating them by almost 3 minutes. I had never felt better. My heart rate was under control, I wasn’t even out of breath. Thanks to Insanity! Theres virtually no equipment needed for this workout. All you really need is 1. water and 2. a soft surface to jump around on. You will sit on the ground also to do some of the moves, so a concrete floor isn’t the best idea for that, so a least have some sort of mat that you can sit on. Oh and have a good pare of shoes! Most all the moves you can do with in a 6′ x 6′ area and thats plenty. All the moves are pretty simple to do. But Shaun T doesn’t play around. His combination of moves keeps your heart rate up and the sweat flowing. You can check out this short video to see what you can expect from Shaun T’s Insanity.

With Insanity you will get in amazing shape. You can get 6 pack abs, toned muscles and you will eventually be able to perform your favorite activities at an athletes pace. Well at least close to that. Your body will be conditioned to handle just about any activity you throw at it. I like extreme sports, activities and mud runs. This is the perfect workout to get ready for something like that. Of course you don’t have to like any of that stuff to like Insanity. Bottom line if you just want a great workout that doesn’t involve equipment then this is your workout.

Body Beast

This is a little slower paced workout. Don’t be fooled though! This workout is jam packed with old school weight lifting techniques with some new school moves to. Sagi has been a body builder for a long time. He really knows how to help you get bigger and stronger muscles in just 90 days! The best part is he’s done it all naturally. By that I mean that Sagi hasn’t used steroids to get where he’s at. I liked doing this workout because it was completely different from any other workout that I’d done in the past few years. Its basically all weight lifting. I increased my muscle mass much more than I thought I would. There is some cardio with the Beast program. Again don’t be fooled. With all the weight that your throwing up, you’ll burn some massive calories with it. You can achieve 6 pack abs, bigger arms, lats, shoulders, chest and legs. Any muscle you can name, you’ll see some improvement in. This is strength training. Thats really it in a nut shell.

The reason I want to create a hybrid between the Body Beast and Insanity is because Im looking to achieve the muscles and have the performance of an athlete. I’m not sure that I’ll obtain the same amount of mass, but thats what Im going to do this time. With Body Beast there is equipment that you’ll need. And to go along with it, I would highly recommend the supplements to go with it. My personal opinion is, if you do Body Beast without the supplements, Its like buying a car and never putting gas in it. And using something besides twhat’s been formulated for the Beast workout is like buying a car that that requires 93 gas and you put in 87, it just doesn’t make sense. I have another post on the Equipement and Supplements if you want to read up more on it.

Check out this short video on what the Beast is like.

What they have in Common

Really its not just with Body Beast and Insanity, it’s with all the Beachbody workouts. Its the Nutrition. Both the Beast and Insanity come with a well planned nutrition guide. Again they are both very different. Insanity is going to help you in eating things that will help you lose weight and get those toned muscles. Body Beast also has a healthy guide, but its food is more focused on helping you get the required calories to get the muscle mass.

Something to consider with both workouts, is Shakeology. Its just smart nutrition.

So which workout is it going to be for you? The easiest and most economical way to get these workouts is with a Challenge Pack. The Challenge pack has all you need in it. With the Beast you get the workouts, the nutrition plan and all the supplements. With Insanity, you get the workout, the nutrition guide and Shakeology. Of course if you just want the workouts you can get that too.

Get the Body Beast Challenge Pack. Get the Insanity Challenge Pack. (The Challenge Pack is the best bang for the buck).

Get Body Beast, get Insanity (workouts only).

They are two different programs that target the body and its muscle groups differently. Bottom line, Tony just knows what he’s doing! I haven’t done any of his programs that I didn’t get amazing, noticeable results. I’ve been drinking Shakeology for almost 2 years now I love it. I truly couldn’t imagine a day without it. To get both of these items at this price is a complete steal and if you have been on the fence about either then now is the time to do something about it and change the direction of your life.

And if you’re still wondering why Shakeology is so important…stop wondering! It truly is the best thing to put in your body! Like I said; I’ve drank it everyday for the last 2 years almost and I feel great. Check out what Tony Horton (P90X Master) says about Shakeology in this short, funny but very true video.

Remember, you can only take advantage of this P90X and P90X2 plus Shakeology discount for the month of March so click on the link below for the one you want and get started.  Your body will thank you.

Body Beast Video Review of Supplements & Equipment

As promised, here is a Body Beast Review of the Supplements and Equipment. See what you can use and what you shouldn’t skip out on. Gain muscle mass with body beast!

I did a post previously reviewing the Body Beast supplements and the equipment that you would need to do the Body Beast workout, but I wanted to go a little further and really show you a visual of what you need and why it’s important not to skip out on some of the equipment. I also quickly run through the Body Beast “Book of the Beast”, both the schedule for the Lean Beast workout and the Huge Beast workout. I did however forget to mention the Workout Sheets! When you start the Beast workout you must, must have the workout sheets that go along with it. It’s so important to track your results so that when you do the workout again the following week, you’ll know what you did before, and what you need to improve on. Download your Body Beast workout sheets here. Again I did do a detailed post of this so some of the information is just repeated in the video, but I sometimes find it easier to relate to something better when I can actually see it. Anyway check out this video, its about 12 minutes, which seems long, but I actually think all the information I went through kinda fast. If there is any one topic you would like for me to post on, please leave me a comment below, and I’ll be glad to post on that next.

Body Beast – Eating like a Beast

Body BeastMany of you may be wondering what the eating plan is like while doing the Body Beast workout. Im going to share how the Body Beast Book of the Beast says about eating on a budget found on page 44.

The Body Beast Eating Plan on a Budget — The most annoying thing about food is it doesn’t grow on trees.

Well, technically, some of it does, but you still have to pay for it – and when you’re eating several thousand calories a day, the cost can add up fast.

Luckily, you’re not the first bodybuilder to operate without an unlimited cash flow. During leaner times, even Sagi resorted to living on tuna and beans, and he still didn’t lose his Beastliness.

So here’s a little collected wisdom to help you bulk up on a budget.

  1. Buy in bulk. You can find rice, potatoes, beans, oats, nuts, and protein foods in bulk for pennies on the dollar. You can freeze protein foods like chicken breast for later use, or make Beast-sized recipes and freeze them in individual servings to re heated later.
  2. Avoiding ready-made prepackaged meals. This contributes not only to your good health, but also to your wallet, because you’re basically paying for the packaging and processing.
  3. Buy your fruits and veggies in season. They’ll be cheaper, more nutritious, and tastier. Frozen produce is another tasty, healthy alternative; it tends to be inexpensive, and flash freezing maintains the nutritional value of fruits and veggies better than stamping them “fresh,” then shipping them across the world.
  4. Always us a grocery list. Also, avoid shopping on an empty stomach if you’re prone to unhealthy impulse buying.
  5. Keep an eye out for sales. Plus take advantage of coupons and buy generic when the ingredients are the same as the brand-name product.
  6. Top affordable bodybuilding foods:
    • Canned Tuna
    • Eggs (choose high omega 3 varieties)
    • Chicken brest
    • Lean ground beef, turkey, or chicken
    • Nut butter
    • Whole-grain breads and pastas
    • Cottage cheese
    • Legumes (beans, lentils, ect.)
    • Bananas
    • Oats
    • Brown rice
    • Whey protein-based supplements (like Beachbody Hardcore Base Shake)
    • Potatoes

Awesome Lunch or Dinner Recipe

Page 92, Easy Chicken Fajitas (Makes 4 servings, 2 fajitas each)

  • Total time: 36 minutes
  • Prep time: 30 minutes
  • Cooking time: 6 minutes

Fajitas are health and filling and make a great dinner. This recipe teaches you an easy way to marinate chicken. The result is a very flavorful dish.

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided us
  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves ( about 1 pound total), cut into 1/2 inch strips
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon  fresh lime juice
  • 8 small corn or whole wheat tortillas
  • 1/2 avocado, thinly sliced
  • Fresh salsa ( for garnish; optional)
  • Lime wedges (for garnish; optional)

Sound delicious so far! If you want to know how to prepare everything, well you’re just going to have to get the Beast workout! The Book of the Beast has a ton of great recipes and easy to follow instructions. You’ll get tons of info and tons of support. So if your ready to add some size, and learn how to eat great food that will pack on the muscle, then stop waiting. Get yours now!

How to Buy, Where to Buy Body Beast?

I would recommend purchasing the Challenge Pack for the Body Beast Program. Its at a discounted price, and gives you the entire workout plus your first 30 day supply of all the supplements. Its the most economic way.

Body Beast Equipment and Supplements

Patrick-Sagi-Body-Beast.jpgThe Body Beast Equipment and Supplements are a key component to this program. With the wrong supplements or to little equipment you might not get as good of results as you could have. I’ll give you my best Body Beast Review on what I think you should or shouldn’t do. You can make due with equipment to a degree. If your just getting started and building your library of equipment then you may have to do some of the modifications while your working towards getting more equipment. The supplements are a different story. I must say, I don’t understand why some would rather run out to GNC, buy something cheap that they really don’t know the effects of all the ingredients and trust someone behind the counter to tell them what they think they should take when the majority of the time they’re just telling you something they have read on a report sheet. The creators of the Beast Supplements did their research and tested them on real people. I had the pleasure of thoroughly  speaking with Sagi and some of the experts an they know what their talking about! I personally don’t have a masters degree in nutrients or supplements, which is why I choose to trust the people who have put in the time to study and test in this area. Of course you can do this program without the supplements, but again, if your looking to build muscle mass you’ve got to be willing to invest in yourself. I would highly recommend that you use them. The Body Beast Supplements give your body exactly what it needs when doing this type of extreme and intense workout. Building muscles and working out it general is an investment, a time investment. If you’re going to spend a hour 6 days a week working on your body, then I would definitely think the investment in the supplements would be an easy decision. Its just going to increase your probability of reaching your goals. Plus its a great way to help in reaching your caloric intake. Below is a list of the suggested equipment with the suggested modifications and the supplement and its effects to the body.

The items listed below you can get during your checkout for the Beast Program on this site, (or here) the pictures are just below :

How is Body Beast different from other bodybuilding programs?

Body Beast is one of the first all-in-one bodybuilding, nutrition, and supplement systems on the market.

Used as a complete system, for massive muscle gains and fat loss in just 90 days.

What types of exercises are in the Body Beast Workout?

By taking the best of old-school bodybuilding and incorporating it with a breakthrough in sports science called Dynamic Set Training, Body Beast is proven to put on up to 20 pounds of muscle mass in just 90 days. You’ll crank out Single Sets, Super Sets, Giant Sets, Progressive Sets, Drop Sets, Tempo Sets and more exercises you’ve probably seen before but now put together in an entirely new way. Now you’ll add resistance and execute moves at crazy angles to exhaust the muscle, activate more muscle fibers, and naturally boost testosterone levels far beyond what’s been possible before in a home training system.

P90X vs Body Beast

myhomefitnesspro.com

Both P90X and Body Beast are very good workouts but target a different result. I’ll give you my best P90X Review and Body Beast Review and let you decide which program you think will best help you accomplish your goals. They will both help with muscle definition and working on your six pack, but one as it was described to me is for “looking” and the other is for “doing“. Those are the words of Tony Horton the co creator of P90X. What I mean by that is we all in a sense workout for ego to a certain degree. Most of us want a great looking stomach, defined arms, legs, shoulders and back, male and female. Of course in the back of our minds we all want to be over all more healthy and in great working physical condition, but you have to admit there’s some ego involved as well.

P90X Review

This workout is for “doing”, again this is how Tony described it an online chat with the Team Beachbody Club members in June of 2012. Doing, in layman’s terms means to be able to perform athletically. P90X is designed to burn fat, lean out the body and build muscle, not muscle mass. While some definitely do get great muscles from doing the P90X program, in most cases it shreds the body of fat and turns it into lean muscle. The moves associated with P90X help you to be able to play sports better (for fun, or even as a pro athlete) or help you enjoy physical activities such as running, rock or rope climbing, mud runs and so on. Or even practical things such as just being able to move better or have better balance. For example simple things like picking up your child, doing yard work, climbing steps, or other leisure activities that might be a problem for you right now.

Body Beast Review

This program is the one for looking”. Im not sure if Tony was being sarcastic when he gave this answer…I personally like Sagi Kalev (co creator of Body Beast) and have done 90 days of Body Beast (and got great results), but there is some truth to what Tony said. This program is all about building muscle mass. There is very little cardio in this program, with the exception of Leg day which really revs my heart rate, and there is a Beast Cardio workout, but it seems like another Leg routine to me. The Body Beast program is all about ego. You want big muscles. What do we do when we have big muscles? We look at them…every time we walk past a mirror we have to give a little “flex” if you know what I mean? And there is nothing wrong with that. But lets be realistic. You don’t see many body builders out running 5k’s or 10k’s. Why? Because you don’t want to lean out that muscle mass. I was under the same impression that Im sure most of you are, before I learned that cardio isn’t always the most effective way of burning fat. Tony even said himself, lifting weights builds muscle. Cardio will give you an after burn for and hour or three, but (and thats a big but) muscle burns fat 24 hours around the clock, which is why both program work and is why the Body Beast program won’t make gain fat taking in a all those calories. Oh yeah, with the Beast you EAT!

A little about Both

Both the P90X and Body Beast programs provide you with excellent meal planners. But again they are both very different.

P90X has 3 Phases:

  • Fat Shredder: Phase 1 is a higher-protein diet that jump-starts your fat loss as you begin building muscle.
  • Energy Booster: Phase 2 gives your body the energy it needs with a balanced mix of carbs and protein.
  • Endurance Maximizer: Phase 3 is an athletic diet with more complex carbs and lean protein for ultimate performance.

Body Beast is a little more lenient. It doesn’t tell you what to eat each day. It does however give you an example of what your day could look like. You first need to figure out how many calories your going to take in (the planning guide will help you figure this out), and then you can choose from the recipe’s in the book for healthy ways to get your calories. McD’s hamburgers are definitely not on that list of suggested foods. Body Beast did a great job of planning a healthy way for you to build your muscle mass and has gotten great reviews for it.

Which program is the best?

Well there isn’t a good and better choice here. You really need to figure out what your goals are. If you want to lose weight, and build a lean body, work on your athleticism, balance, running or just be able to enjoy some of the simple things in life we take for granite like picking your child up or playing with the grand kids in the yard, then the P90X program is the way to go. For the men reading, you can add a great deal of muscle with P90X so don’t get me wrong. But if straight up muscle mass is what your looking for, and you enjoy lots of weight lifting, and/or want to even compete in competitions then the Body Beast program is what you want. For the ladies, let me say this, I do know several women who do Body Beast and there is actually a “Lean Beast” schedule that you can follow. The amount of size you put on is based on the calories you take in and genetics does play a small role, so if you’re a lady and you want to do this program I encourage you to do so!

So who is P90X designed for? Simple answer: Anyone that wants to be in better shape, and live a healthy lifestyle. It helps with simple task around the house or performing athletically better. The winners of the $100k at summit in 2012 both did P90X (and Shakeology) to get their results. The male was obese to start and he actually lost 200 lbs. So really anyone can do this workout. But it takes a lot of commitment. Don’t worry though, you get free support from me as your coach, and tons of support from the Team Beachbody community. They are real people, getting real results.

Who is Body Beast designed for? Any male or female that wants to concentrate on building muscle. You will and can burn fat and lose weight with this program. Just keep in mind that its designed to make you a “Beast”. Sorry I had to say it, but really it is designed to help you build muscle. And the same applies here. You get me free for support as your coach, and tons of support from the Team Beachbody community.

Equipement

Just going to keep is short and sweet. You’re going to need equipment for either of these programs.

P90X you at least need:

  • Dumbbells (5’s, 10’s and 20’s (the more the better, sometimes you can find a complete set on Craigslist for cheap, or go with the adjustable dumbbell set like the BowFlex SelectTech)) or Resistance Bands
  • Pull-up bar or you can use resistance bands to simulate a pull-up

Optional

  • This really shouldn’t be under optional. Nutrition is just as important as the workout. Shakeology. Your body needs it. Its great for meal replacements to help you achieve your weight loss goals, and its a great post workout shake. It has everything you need to give your body after a hard workout. I even drank Shakeology when I was doing Body Beast. It’s just a way of life for me.

Body Beast you at least need:

  • Dumbbells…If your serious about building muscle, in my opinion you really need a complete set, 5’s to 50’s or even 80’s. There are some moves that are very challenging with only 5 lbs. Some moves I can use 50’s and that’s not enough.
  • Pull-up bar or you can use resistance bands to simulate a pull-up
  • A bench or yoga/stability ball to lay back on
  • The Body Beast Supplement. If your committing to the workout, you need to commit to the supplements. It’s perfectly designed to give you what you need. Designed by experts and tested by real people, plus it helps you achieve your caloric goals.

Optional

  • Curl bar. Before I got the curl bar I used my dumbbells and it worked ok, but I personally think I got better results with the curl bar. You can get the bar and the weights for a great price when purchasing Body Beast.

I’ve made my decision, so how do I get my program?

P90X Challenge PackFor the P90X Program I would recommend purchasing the P90X Challenge Pack. Its at a discounted price, and gives you the entire workout plus your first 30 day supply of Shakeology. Its the most economic way. If you just want to start out with the program, you can Buy it here.

 

 

Body BeastFor the Body Beast Program I would recommend purchasing the Challenge Pack. Its at a discounted price, and gives you the entire workout plus your first 30 day supply of all the supplements. Again its the most economic way. If you just want to start out with the program, you can Buy it here.

You can find all the equipment you need minus the dumbbells once you’ve gotten the program from your new free account.
