Home Gyms: teamRIPPED a...

A little over a month ago I asked to see your Home Gyms again! I got some great submissions. And just like last time, they really show that you can do Beachbody programs anywhere. With lots of gear and equipment OR the bare necessities. We had some AWESOME submissions from the first time...

Adjustable Dumbbells fo...

Adjustable dumbbells are the perfect addition to P90X. They are compact, easy to adjust, and offer just about as much resistance as you need. The two main choices out there are Bowflex’s Selecttechs and Powerblocks. There are other brands (LifeSmart, Wieder, Ironmaster, etc), but...

PiYo – Tons of in...

PiYo is coming SOON! Chalene Johnson’s new program PiYo will be released soon! I thought it was time to make sure you got some info on it. I know that a lot of ladies have been really pumped about this program. Chalene is an awesome trainer and I know my wife has LOVED her program...

Home Gym: Workout Beach...

Home Gym: Workout Beachbody Style! Is there anything better?! I don’t think so! Otherwise I wouldn’t be going strong on over 4 years of working hard with Beachbody programs, all from the comfort of my home! Just about 2 years ago, I threw out the idea of showing off all our...

Auxiliary Workouts: Bod...

Body Beast is awesome! There is no way around it LOL I am so looking forward to when Beachbody produces and releases a Body Beast 2. I have no idea when that will happen, but I hope it’s sooner than later! I have played around with a few auxiliary, bonus Body Beast style workouts...

Body Beast Hybrids: P90...

Body Beast Hybrids! You’ve asked for them! Here they are! There is no doubt that Body Beast has been one of the most popular newer programs from Beachbody. I LOVE  Body Beast! I have combined it with a lot of other workouts too (see my Beast/Cardio hybrid from last year). These are...

Pick 1 Goal: Ripped or ...

I have a few articles that I’ve written over the past few years that I find myself referring people to over and over and over, because they address some of the most common questions I ever get.  One is the “just do it” article when people ask about how to stay...

Picking your FIRST Prog...

Picking your first program is a little harder now than it was when I started LOL! Beachbody has so many choices and great programs that it has given people more to think about. Before we get into what the teamRIPPED Nation thinks and what I think, let’s look at some of the overall...

When is the BEST time t...

Those of you who know much about my habits, know that I have always worked out first thing in the morning. I get up at 4:30 to 4:45, and start my workout about 5:30 every day.  This has benefits and drawbacks. I feel the benefits FAR outweigh the drawbacks. Strengths of the Morning...

Les Mills PUMP Review

Les Mills Pump Review — Get ready for a rocking time! Les Mills Pump is a BLAST!  It’s been a while but I really love this workout. I wanted to re-post my review as Beachbody has some GREAT deals on Les Mills Pump Challenge Packs this month (And Les Mills Combat too).  This...

Big Boy Weights for Bod...

Body Beast is still the go-to program for muscle. That is what it was designed for and what it delivers. You can do a lot with it too, as long as you still control your nutrition precisely. You can get a really lean bulk, go all out bulking, and even cut. All with lifting heavy weights....

Coach Wayne wants your ...

TeamRIPPED seems to have it all! I have been working hard at providing you guys and gals great information since July of 2010!!! I’ve tried to cover everything anyone would need to have the absolute best transformation. Program reviews, TONS on nutrition, supplements, gear,...

Taking the Beachbody Ch...

The Beachbody Challenge is a great way to keep motivated and get rewarded even more. The best reward you can get from crushing a Beachbody program is obviously your health and fitness. But why not get a little more for your hard work? The OLD Beachbody Challenge It used to be that the...

The Asylum Vol 1: Worth...

It’s been a while, but I thought it would be good to take another look at The Asylum. This was the very first program for the very first Challenge Group. It was the Asylum Challenge featuring the best of the best, the cream of the crop … teamRIPPED … vs. team...

Measuring Weight Loss P...

Measuring weight loss progress can be tough at times. And actually this title may be misleading. Most people think weight loss progress is only the number on the scale. If the number you read on the dial between your feet each morning is going down, you’re a success. If that needle...

21 Day Fix — New ...

From Team Beachbody… What is 21 Day Fix? The 21 Day Fix program takes the guesswork out of weight loss. It’s a unique portion-control system combined with easy-to-follow workouts that fit into anyone’s busy schedule. Trainer Autumn Calabrese shares her passion for food...

Training Too Much: Are ...

Are you “Overtraining”??  How do you know?  What are some guidelines to follow? First, let me just say that there are 2 common situations I run into with “overtraining” – 1)  The person who is new to the workouts (within the first couple weeks) and asks me...

Money Matters: Fitness ...

This post is bad for “the bottom line”.  But I don’t care! I really feel like it’s important that even though I’m here to talk fitness and nutrition, that I take a slight diversion to talk about money.  What is the cause of most divorces in this country? ...

P90X3 Elite Workout Blo...

These Elite Workouts (ARX3, Complex Upper, and Complex Lower) are TOUGH!  They are NOT part of the base kit, and they are NOT necessary for doing the entire 90 days of P90X3.  The complex workouts are a lot like the PAP workouts from phase 3 of P90X2 for those of you who are familiar...

P90X3 Workouts Review: ...

Happy New Year teamRIPPED!!! Monday, Monday, Monday!!! That is when the X3 Battle of the RIPPED will start. The group is buzzing and lots of people are getting fired up. Let’s go all out and show the RIPPEDClub what teamRIPPED is made of. 100% on all workouts, 100% on nutrition, no...

P90X3 Workouts Review #...

I’ve been having a blast trying out all the P90X3 workouts for these reviews! Most days I have been doing 2, just to make sure I get all of them reviewed before our X3 Battle of the RIPPED Challenge Group starts on January 6th. P90X3 Workouts Review P90X3 is broken into 3 phases,...

P90X3 Nutrition Guide

The P90X3 Nutrition Guide keeps adapting from P90X and P90X2. With our X3 Battle of the RIPPED Challenge coming up on Jan 6th, we need to have a good nutrition plan. I will be giving you a run down of all the aspects of P90X3 as we get through this week and into the next. I have been...
