So, I finished round 2 (last one finished in November 2014) of Body Beast! Lifting heavy, at home (though you can easily bring it to the gym now with the streaming workouts!), with fairly minimal equipment. I gained 2 lbs, but it’s definitely muscle. I am fitting in clothes that I’ve never been able to wear. Not before I was pregnant, not when I bought them (most were bought at an outlet when I was feeling close, so they almost fit, but not really wearable comfortably).
I only regret not taking flexed before pictures. It doesn’t show as well in the pictures without flexing, but I hope you’ll take my word for it. I feel strong and fit, and like I’m no longer losing baby weight, just going on my usual path to a fitter me.
I’m going back to the 21 Day Fix with a twist on a hybrid Fix and Fix Extreme workouts and it’s nice to have short workouts. I love both Body Beast and these quick effective workouts. I know they’re completely different, but I really enjoy both styles and both eating plans! Choosing is so hard. It’s a good problem to have! I expect to do another Body Beast round before this year ends.
Now, for the equipment! Everyone asks that…I’m sure because it’s a tough concept. How will you get the resistance at home without having a stocked home gym??
If you have any questions, leave them in the comments! I’d love to hear from you!!
