So here it is, an update about my progress using the Bikini Body Guide (BBG). I get a lot of questions about the BBG so I decided to answer all of them in one post!
What is the BBG?
Bikini Body Guide is an work-out ebook to get a fit, healthy body!
The exercise guide consists of a 12 week training schedule filled with circuit workouts, different kinds of walking and running exercises. The nutrition guide consists of information about a healthy and balanced diet, a week menu and healthy recipes (you have to buy them separately). To buy the guide go here!
The guide contains different kinds of workouts.
Resistance training: it’s a circuit training session. You’ll be doing these 3 times a week training your legs & cardio, abs & arms and full body workouts. These circuits are quite heavy and hard but oh you feel so great when finished.
LISS: stands for Low Intensity Steady State, which power walking (6,4 km/hour) for about 35-45 minutes straight.
HIIT: High Intensity Interval Training, which is a sprint training. of 10-15 minutes. You start doing HIIT in week 9.
First of all: I never thought I’d come so far. I’ve tried getting lean and fit for two years now but never accomplished because I simply couldn’t find structure and motivation. Whenever I went to the gym I walked on the treadmill, did some abs training (although I didn’t knew what I was doing) and joined group lessons. Next to that I loved snacking chocolate and other sweets. The BBG brings structure to your work-outs. The only thing you have to do is get your lazy ass to the gym and start doing what the ebook tells you to do. Yes it’s hard, it’s heavy and costs a lot of time and energy, but boy this might be the best decision I made in years. I feel so much more energetic and healthy! I am less tired during the day and I concentrate better at work.
As you can see in photos above I definitely made some visual progress as well! (God, I hate looking at the first photo). At first people were telling me: why are you trying to loose weight? You’re so slim! Yes, with my clothes on I was slim and I definitely didn’t feel fat, but I wasn’t lean and tight at all (as you can see at Week 0). The biggest difference is in the first 4 weeks. I went from sporting 0 times a week to 6 times a week (3x Resistance, 3x LISS) and next to that I counted the calories I ate. This resulted in a weight loss of 2,5 kg.
When you’ve lost weight it’s time to gain strength. This is what happened in week 4 – week 8. The visual effect isn’t that big, but if you look at the fat%, which has dropped 5% it’s obvious I turned fat into muscles as I didn’t loose that much weight again.
I hope I’ve given you all the info you needed. If not, just ask more in the comment box down below and I’ll reply!
