Spending Time with Sean from The Bachelor

This morning I had a 6am date with Sean Lowe from The Bachelor.Sean Lowe from the Bachelor, wedding, Body Beast But he wasn’t wearing a tuxedo.

유씨 and I started the Body Beast workout program today.
Day 1 is Build: Chest / Tris.
Build Chest Tris

OMGWTFBBQ was that a tough workout. I haven’t felt this shaky since, never. I thought it wouldn’t that big of a deal because
-I’ve done a few rounds of P90X;
-There aren’t all that many actual exercises in this video;
-We watched it last night and I was annoyed by how many and how long the breaks were; and
-I used relatively light weights: 8-, 10-, 12- and 15 pounds. (The 15s didn’t make it into the second set of exercises).

Maybe it’s the sequence of the exercises? For the most part, each exercise has 4 sets: start light, go medium, then the heaviest you can, then decrease the weights back to medium or lighter weights. By the time I got to that 4th set, my arms were trembling. There were a few push-up sets in this video too, and I could manage about 3 each time. On my knees. And those breaks, boy did I need them.

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from Body Beast. I haven’t seen a lot of reviews on it from women, and the women who do review it are typically body builders or fitness competitors. Obviously, I’m neither; I just want to be fit and strong. And I’d like to be able to put my suitcase in the overhead compartment without assistance.

Have you tried Body Beast? Would you?

  1. Wow body beast…that sounds tough! Let us know your progress!

  2. yes, i’m on my second round of body beast and I LOVE IT. i did it right after doing p90x because i love lifting so much.

    it’s tough because of all the drop/progressive/super sets but this program definitely works. i wish he incorporated more pullups and pushups but i see this as just a different way of working out.

    it’s also good to get yoga in there at least once a week to keep you flexible. focused lifting like this, where you build mass, can impede your flexibility and yoga will help (will also help work a different set of muscles).

    keep it up!! this is such a great program.

      Wow second round, that’s amazing!
      Good point about the yoga. I missed my hatha class on Monday but I won’t miss it again next week.

  3. wow, kudos Wendy!!!!

  4. Good luck! It wouldn’t be very helpful for you if it was easy from the beginning… difficult is a good thing! How long is the Body Beast program?

I'd love to hear from you
