It feels like I’ve been waiting months to try LIIFT4. Oh wait. I have.
You see, the program actually did a soft launch in July and those who were dying to try it could purchase a challenge pack or a opt for a one-time BOD early access fee. I just decided to wait with the rest of the world and take full advantage of the FREE launch in October.
But the more I see the awesome results people have been getting from LIIFT4, the more I’m excited to try it for myself.
What, exactly, is LIIFT4?
An awesome combination of weight training and high-intensity cardio. It will get you shredded in record time. Over the course of eight weeks, you’ll workout 4 times a week for less than 40 mins a day. On off days you can choose another workout or swap in the two stretch workouts Joel has created. You’ll use weights and also have the option of resistance bands.
I was able to try out a sample LIIFT4 workout. It was fun, but definitely kicked my butt. But 30 minutes a day, 4 times a week? Count me in!
Joel Freeman – Elite personal trainer and co-creator of Core de Force. I would love the chance to meet Joel. He’s super motivational, down to earth, and makes the workouts fun.
Nothing’s a secret about the nutrition plan as of today – it’s all on BOD. You’ll use the Portion Fix Containers and can incorporate Shakeology and the Beachbody Performance Line. If you’re looking to build serious muscle, add more containers. It’s that easy! There’s also a vegan plan if you’re so inclined.
One thing that separates this program from the rest is the weekly optional cheat day. On Sunday (or another day before a working day) indulge in a brownie, beer, or even some Halo Top. Just don’t go overboard. Fun stuff!
It goes without saying, but make sure you are drinking plenty of water during the workouts and throughout the day – at least half of your body weight. It will cut down on hunger and keep you hydrated. You might even consider adding Beachbody Performance Hydrate into your routine (it’s like a healthier Gatorade). I also love Beachbody Performance Energize to get that jumpstart before the workout even begins.
Since the program is pretty rigid, Sunday meal prep will help you stay on track. Even if you just make meal starters to help you with dinners throughout the week, you will be one step ahead.
Right now this is one of the newest programs and it has a ton of hype surrounding it (like all Beachbody programs). Joel has even said you can “train hard, get results, and still have a life.” Now, that’s my kind of program. To be honest, it’s a challenge to fit in long workouts like in 80 Day Obsession
Bottom Line: Beachbody claims that LIIFT4 will transform your body in just 8 weeks. It’s a bold claim considering there are only 4 working days. However, participants are encouraged to do other workouts on off days. I’m thinking Country Heat and running will be good for me. I approve of the the back-to-basics simple nutrition and workouts, and I’m hoping I love this just as much as SHIFT SHOP!
In all, I seriously can’t wait until October 1st!
I know you know, but I have to say it anyway…always consult your doctor before beginning an intense exercise, fitness, and/or diet program.
