Phase 1 Body Beast and T25 review

Sunday, October 6, 2013

The end of August wrapped up Insanity for me and I was absolutely thrilled with my results from it but wanted to start incorporating more weight training into my life again.  There are a couple of great at home programs to choose from, from Beachbody.  If you're just starting out Chalean Extreme is great, but having had some experience with weight training in the past and a desire to build up my own equipment at home I decided to go with Body Beast and have LOVED every minute of it.   I also decided to check out Shaun T's new T25 workout and incorporate that in for my cardio days with Body Beast.

There are 3 phases to this program.  The first 2 phases are Build phases where you essentially bulk up, build your muscle and strength and then phase 3 is the lean phase where, in lamans terms you cut off some of the fat you put on during the 1st 2 phases to reveal the lovely muscle you've been building underneath.

My Review

I've put together a video of my review of Phase 1 of my Body Beast/T25 hybrid program and included a few of my meal plans below to let you know how I've been planning and eating throughout this phase.

Meal Plans


I've also included my schedule for these workouts as I started the program in the middle of the week.  I am about a day off schedule at the moment, which is fine!  For all of us, life happens and you just have to go with the flow, but I'm really loving this program and hoping to see some great results from it.

I have an unexpected last minute trip to Ireland coming up this week which is going to throw a slight wrench in my schedule.  My plan at the moment is to get as much weight training in as possible from friends in Ireland who can bring me to the gym and on the days I can't make it I have my T25 cardio.  I'll keep you posted on how I handle the challenges of eating and working out on vacation.  Having not been home for over a year and a half my plan is to certainly enjoy much of what I've missed but I plan to keep healthy snacks on me and eat a healthy breakfast everyday.  The rest is up in the air at the moment!
