From time to time I like to share some of my favorite Beachbody Workouts. I must admit that BodyBeast is by far my favorite program to date for many reasons. I won’t go into every detail why BodyBeast is such a good program, but I will highlight the top 5 reasons why this is my “go-to” program. As I work through my 3rd cycle of BodyBeast, these reasons are the reason for keeping me motivated and excited about working out everyday.

Heavy Weight Lifting Gives Me an Energy Boost
This seems to be true every single time! When I feel like skipping a workout, I opt for a weight training session instead of cardio.
Just the other day, I came home from a very long day of work. The last thing I wanted to do was run on the treadmill or jump around with a Plyo workout. Instead, I dusted off my bench and picked up my pair of dumbbells. Starting with a low weight, I warmed up on the bench. Set by set my energy level began to increase. Next time you’re feeling zapped of your energy, I would highly recommend you give this a try. If you don’t have any weights, do a few push ups and sit ups.
The Workouts are all under One Hour
No matter how much I try to organize my day, it seems like there’s never enough time in the day. Last year I made the decision that I would get some exercise everyday. This was a personal commitment I had made to improving my health and quality of life. You know, as I get older, I find this to be at the top of my priority list.
The challenge I soon faced was TIME. BodyBeast soon became my go-to workout due to the weight lifting aspect, which I enjoy due to the immediate strength and energy boost… but also because all the workouts are under 1 Hour. This soon became a big plus for me as it allowed me to check off my workout everyday no matter how busy I found myself.
High Intensity and Fast Pace Keeps My Heart Rate Up
The fast pace of the BodyBeast Workouts really keeps my heart rate in the fat burning zone. If you’re like me and hate doing a bunch of cardio, then you’ll really enjoy BodyBeast.
Increase in Strength Week to Week
I’m now on my third cycle of BodyBeast and I must say my strength levels and endurance have really come up.
When I first started the program I really struggled getting through a workout. Not to mention, I was unable to remain consistent with the program as each workout set me back a few days of recovery.
If you need a structured at home workout that will help increase your strength, this is the one.
Bonus P90X Plyometric Workout
Going through this workout you’re going to want to mix in some cardio. As much as I hate doing cardio, I must say that the P90X Plyometric bonus workout gets me in the zone. The results I’ve gotten from this workout have been really good, and I must say this is my cardio go-to workout as well.
All The Best,
