Hello!! Today I started the Body Beast program (and LOVED every minute of it). Are there any other females on MFP who are currently doing the program? I would love to hear from you. Thanks! :0)
August 7, 2012 8:32 AM
Me! But you already know that. ;)

I'm looking forward to more responses. It'd be fun to encourage and push each other through it!

I started an accountability group for females doing Body Beast on FB. Check out Body Beaste "ette"s on FB if interested in joining.

I doubt there are many if any women on this site that SHOULD be doing body beast. You would be better of starting with a proper beginner routine that has you working at the proper volume and frequency for your training level.

More info on that particular facet can be found here http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=137364463

More info on lifting in general (and eating and losing fat etc.) can be found here http://www.myfitnesspal.com/topics/show/686963-large-collection-of-info-for-beginners

Why do you say that they should not be doing body beast?

I'm pretty sure it is a body part split with too many exercises which is the kind of training best done by advanced bodybuilders. Beginner's should start with a 3 day full body routine focused on core compound lifts.

I am a woman, I am doing Body Beast. I am not a bodybuilder. I am loving it! I have lost an inch of my waist and I am seeing great results. I am an Insanity grad who used to hate lifting weights. I personally think that this program is for ANYONE who wants to build muscle and get in shape. Of course... I am not a physician, I am just speaking about my experience. :)

As of right now I own Body Beast but am currently doing a hybrid of Les Mills Pump and Tapout XT, and considering doing Body Beast after the new Asylum Vol 2 comes out. Would love to keep up with your progress though and also to check out your Facebook group. Good luck to you, wish you all the best :D

Question for all of you, are you taking the supplements and powders that come with the program or did you opt out? I have a friend who's doing it but she isn't taking any of the supplements etc...

I am not taking the supplements either. I am drinking Shakeology. I also have some P90X Results and Recovery formula that I am finishing up too.

Thank you for the information. I will check it out. I also wanted to say that this is not my first Beachbody program or my 1st time lifting. I feel that this program is right for ME and I am still enjoying every minute of it. The original question was..Are there any other females doing the program. I am looking for other females doing the program for accountability and so on.

Anyone can do it and get results. Little to no one will get the fastest results from it. I personally like to get the fastest results with the simplest, easiest, least time consuming programming possible.

I would love some Body Beast friends!! I just started.

There is also a group.

I realize this is from a while ago, but I'd be curious to know what your results are/were! I'm beginning body beast today and I've been trying to gain insight from women who have done it!
March 8, 2013 4:47 AM
I just got BB. I've been doing ChaLean Extreme lean for life routine for months now and need a change.
Only problem is I really only wanted to lift 3 days a week and this program is 4 to 5 days....not sure how I'm going to modify it. I really want to continue my yoga and running....

I'd also love to hear your results!

I'm currently have 5 weeks of Chalean Extreme to do, but was thinking about switching to Beast.

Also curious about adding in more cardio? Ideally I like to get in a 30 min run 3x's week...

I've heard great things about Jaime's program but I prefer to workout at home, and don't have the equipment to do it.
