In this review, we’ll give you some insider info and tips about this unique 90-day DVD workout program. You’ll learn what it is, how the workouts are structured, how the dieting plan works, what equipment is required, and here my personal experience using it.
The Body Beast Program
Body Beast. Is a 90-day workout program that is pack with pure science and laser focused routines to help you bulk up, put on pure muscle mass or get that ripped physique you always wanted!
It seems impossible but when the leaders in at home fitness programs BeachBody teamed up with Sagi Kalev this all became possible. Sagi is the guy that actors, bodybuilders and professional models call when they need a body transformation and they pay thousands of dollars to get it done. Lucky for you it is all packed up into dvds so you can do it at home at a killer low price!
People are calling this the “New School” of bodybuilding. Remember the old pumping Iron Movie that Arnold Schwarenegger was in with Lou Ferringo? J Class big time meat head body building that put the sport on the map. I mean that in a fun way. J Some of you are probably too young to remember it, it’s a class 1977 movie document Arnold’s journey to the 1975 Mr. Olympia and Mr. Universe Contest.
I bring this up because it was all about doing lots of repetitive sets one body part at a time with big weight. This is still valid today but with a whole new twist and focus that takes less time, way more effective and gets the same results. Welcome to Body Beast – Dynamic Set Training secret!
What Is Body Beast and Should I Buy It?
Body Beast is Beachbody’s answer to all the people (mostly guys) out there who have been asking for a true at-home bodybuilding system. Unlike most of their other products — which are focused on core strength training, cardio conditioning, and fat loss — Body Beast is 100% focused on building quality muscle mass with little or no body fat increase. It is designed to build extreme muscle using Dynamic Set Training to melt fat away and define your whole physique.
According to its creator, professional bodybuilder Sagi Kalev:
“The purpose of Body Beast is to gain lean muscle mass, to also gain size and to gain confidence… It’s not focused on weight loss… The main thing about Body Beast is how to get bigger.”
Body Beast was originally launched back in 2012 but has recently seen a big increase in popularity and interest. Lots of people are going online looking for reviews and information about this unique product… which is why we created this post!
- So, if you are one of those guys who workout regularly but are not seeing results, this is for you!
- If you have completed some other extreme fitness program that has you down to your idea weight but you want to pack on more lean muscle, this is for you!
- If you just want to gain weight and gain muscle then this workout is for you!
- If you are just wanting to get ripped this is for you too. There is a lean program included.
Sagi Kalev – The Beast Creator?
Before the release of Body Beast, Mr. Kalev was not very well known in the US fitness community. He was basically a fitness magazine model, personal trainer, and even did some acting in the 90’s.
In his native country of Israel, however, Kalev is a fitness superstar. He has won the “Mr. Israel” bodybuilding competition twice and is considered to be one of the top bodybuilders to ever come out of the small country.
In recent years Sagi has become a clinical nutritionist and “functional medicine” expert at the Thrive Institute in Dallas, Texas. Obviously the guy knows his stuff and is qualified to help anyone get fit, put on more muscle mass, and improve his or her health. His enthusiasm and expertise are definitely 2 of the biggest benefits of this program!
When the professionals are stuck or what it done, they call him. You get that all in this program and you get it all done at the comfort of your living room!
How Does Body Beast Work ?
The program uses a special technique that is really a breakthrough in sport science. Sagi, decided to use single sets, Super Sets, Giant Sets, Progressive, forced, drop, Tempo Sets and many more to exhaust the muscles, engaging more active muscle fibers that boost natural testosterone levels more than ever before in a home training workout. This combination of sets is laser focused and proven to give you the results you are looking for.
Here are a couple examples of what the sets look like.
You will run through the first set, take a 90 second break and then do it backwards starting with the heavy weight set and move to the medium and then light weight set. Pick your weights carefully this on is going to burn!
- 15 Reps Light weight
- 12 medium weight
- 8 Heavy weight
- 90 Seconds of Rest
1st set 4 regular reps with heavy weight, on the 5th rep hold the weights down for 10 seconds, then do this another 5 times for a total of 10 reps. It engages both fast and slow twitch muscles for maximum results.
This is the new science put to work with old school exercises!
What Makes Body Beast Special?
The biggest benefit, in our opinion, of this program is the fact that it allows anyone to get a gym-quality muscle building workout at home — without actually going to the gym. It utilizes several powerful techniques used by amateur and professional bodybuilders for decades. It also incorporates some innovative tactics developed by Sagi Kalev.
Progressive overload, involving steadily increasing the amount of weight you lift day by day and week by week, is a foundation of the program. The other is a relatively advanced tactic called “Dynamic Set Training.” This involves the principle of pre-exhaustion, where you do several sets of an exercise with lighter weights and then hit your muscles hard with heavy “work sets” to cause the micro-damage necessary for rapid muscle growth.
Pre-exhaustion is a powerful method that provides just enough stimulation to increase muscle size without going overboard with extremely heavy weights or very high sets / volume. Because rest periods are kept short in Body Beast you’ll be getting close to the “muscle failure” point in the last set or two, which is ideal.
Body Beast Block 1 is where the party starts!
Sagi divided the program into what he calls blocks. Each block has a focus to build muscle, bulk up and the go into beast most to tone and lean up the muscle.
Block 1 is the beginning of your body transformation. It’s all about creating strength and definition in the first 30 days.
Duration: 3 weeks long: 6 Days on, 1 Day Off.
- Chest & Triceps
- Back & Biceps
- Beast Cardio & Abs
Body Beast Block 2
This is where he uses the new science of bodybuilding to develop power and lean muscle. Here you will be introduced to Mult-Sets, Combo Sets, Force Sets and Progressive Sets. Don’t worry it’s all explained in the course what they are and he talks you through each one in the videos.
Duration: 5 Weeks: 6 Days on, 1 Day Off.
- Abs & Cardio
Block 3: BEAST
Here the finishing touches are put on to really tone up and get lean by using a rotation of all 12 workouts.
Duration: 4 Weeks, 6 Days On, 1 Day off
Total Workouts: You will do 6 per week but he does a great job of mixing up workouts from the build, bulk and beast blocks.
Personal Note: So, basically you will follow the same set of workouts in each block rotating them every six days and then a day of rest. This means you will not be doing the exact same workout each day of the week which keeps it interesting. If you miss a day then step back in on the schedule and just rolling with it.
What you will get?
BODY BEAST Workout Digital Edition Include:
How Hard Are The Workouts?
Make no mistake about it, these workouts intense strength training. Even experienced weightlifters might be surprised at the volume and intensity. I promise you that you will leave the workout dripping in sweat. I personally wore my heart rate monitor for a couple of the workouts and I had my heart rate up into the 150 range which was just like doing a t25 workout or p90x3 workout all! This was not a cardio workout either! The good news is that you’ll get a gym-quality muscle workout without leaving your home.
The workouts are 30 to 50 minutes long, the ideal length for stimulating muscle growth without destroying too much muscle tissue via catabolism. There are “Build” workouts, which tend to be longer, and “Bulk” workouts, which tend to be shorter. There is also a “Total Body” workout and a “Beast Cardio” workout, both designed to burn fat as efficiently as possible without sacrificing muscle mass.
Body Beast utilizes periodization, a proven bodybuilding strategy, and is split into 3 major parts: Build, Bulk, and Beast. The idea is to allow you to build “base” muscle and strength (Build)… then force your body to rapidly increase in size (Bulk)… then burn off any unwanted body fat to create the lean, muscular look most guys want (Beast).
What Is the Beast Meal Plan Like?
The eating plan is based on proven bodybuilding dieting systems. Like the workouts, it is split into three distinct phases, designed for strength development, rapid muscle growth (“bulking”), and efficient fat loss (“cutting”). If you are a skinny hard gainer you will have to eat a lot of food / calories, especially during the “Bulk” phase. So much so that you may be more than a little shocked by the amount of time and effort you must spend preparing meals.
In the Book of the Beast manual you will walk through how to determine what calorie group you land it to get your daily calorie consumption. Based on that you will add or deduct calories to get lean and bulk up.
From there you will know how many portions of protein, starches, legumes, Veggies Fruits and fats to eat each day. The book has a food list that matches up what food item represents each portion.
I ended up in the 2600 range. So, with that I’m choose the lean schedule. My daily goal is the following:
7 Starches, 3 Legumes or Protein liquids, 6 Veggies or balanced liquids, 6 Fruits or Carb Liquids, 12 proteins and 6 fats.
YOU will have to take time to plan this out the first week. Once you get the meals down you like I would stick with eating those frequently to make it easier on yourself. I also cook in bulk too so that I can freeze meals or put them in containers. It makes it really easy to put together meals to bring into work.
I do have personal body beast meal tracking sheets that you can use. Once you purchase the program let me know and I will get those to you.
What Equipment Is Required?
Since you’ll be doing real weightlifting during the Body Beast workouts, you will need to invest in some home workout equipment. But it’s not extreme and most of the stuff can be found relatively cheaply online.
- simple adjustable bench
- a pull up bar (door frame models are fine)
- an EZ curl bar (optional but recommended)
- dumbbell pairs of varying sizes (or a single set of easily adjustable “smart” dumbbells)
If you’re worried about the cost involved, be sure to buy your weights beforehand. Save up for a few weeks or months and, most importantly, keep an eye on your city or town’s local classified ads. There are almost always cheap dumbbells and weights for sale by people who are moving out or simply no longer need them!
What Are the Typical Results Like?
Everyone is unique with different genetics and body types (ectomorph, endomorph, mesomorph, etc.) — so results can vary. But the typical person will definitely build more muscle mass and lose body fat during the course of this program. As long as you’re eating properly (lots of quality protein and clean carbohydrates) you will definitely gain a significant amount of strength.
If you closely follow the step-by-step workout and eating plan you could easily gain 15 or 20 pounds of pure muscle by using the Body Beast system.
The Bottom Line: This May Be the Best Home Muscle-Building Workout Right Now
We hope this review helped you. If you’re looking for a good way to add mass, gain strength, and get bigger quickly, this is one of the best options currently on the market. Give it a try. It has a money-back guarantee like all the Beachbody products. So you literally have nothing to lose and everything to gain… like 20+ pounds of rock solid muscle!
Which Kit Do I Buy
There are three kits to choose from based on your pocket book and goals. “Lucky 7″ is a full body workout that has 7 exercises and 7 pyramids to step it up to whole a new level of building muscle.
In the base kit you will have a program guide that takes you through a series of 12 Kick You In Your Butt Big Time Workouts. Along with it you will be given instructions with his extensive nutritional plan that has recipes and supplements instructions to shed fat and pack on the muscle. It’s truly like having a personal coach at home laying it all out for you. Just make sure you follow the workout calendar that is included and give it your all!
The other two kits has everything that the base kit plus extra workouts and supplements for you to really kick this routine into high gear. So, you will want the Deluxe or Ultimate kit if you are not already taking these supplements.
