When you have a purpose, you have =
And you have tools with which to tackle everyday life!
Does that sound like something you are interested in? Would you like to plug into a program, with a leader, who thinks like that? Guess what? I just stole the above comments from the back of the “Book of Beast” workout guide! It’s a quote from Sagi Kalev, a guy who impresses me not only with his physical prowess and knowledge of exercise, but also his mental state of mind and life balance.
Let me give you the full quote from the back of the guidebook so you can get a better idea of the man behind the Body Beast workout program =
Being a Beast is about finding your purpose. When you have purpose, you have more strength, power, ability, and tools with which to tackle everyday life. Of course, with this program, you’ll get bigger and stronger on the outside, but I believe you biggest transformation will be within. Your spirit, confidence, security, and overall inner peace will be a reflection of your outer strength. When you believe in your purpose, nothing can stand in your way!
You may be skeptical. That’s okay. Many of my clients have said to me, “Sagi, I didn’t believe this was possible.” I’m here to tell you this works. I’ve seen the results again and again. Trust this program. You can be a Beast!”
I have been doing the Beast workouts for nearly 2 weeks now, and I’m loving it! Our teamRIPPED BEASTS facebook page is totally on fire, and Sagi himself has been gracious enough to plug in with us and share words of encouragement and wisdom. It’s been amazing to have him walking alongside us as we seek to dominate another infomercial with teamRIPPED results!
Once I’ve had a chance to do all the workouts in the program and use the supplements long enough to write a credible, inclusive review of every workout and supplement, I will post a comprehensive Body Beast Review for you all. That will probably be sometime in the next 2 weeks (I don’t want to jump the gun and write a premature review). But needless to say, I’m very high on Body Beast!!
Coach Wayne, I too am VERY interested in the Beast workout. I have some concerns. With P90x and X2, functional fitness and overall health seem to be the aim. As a result, I had a paradigm shift in my understanding if fitness and personally discovered how carrying around extra muscle bulk didn't help climb ropes, trek up mountains or other endurance challenges. General athleticism, balance, flexability, stamina; I don't think of those things when I see a bodybuilder. That said: Is the Beast more on the male vanity end of the fitness spectrum? Tony's programs are also minimalistic in terms of equipment. Does the Beast require an investment into a home gym? The little I've sen of the Beast seems contrary to what I've learned from X2. I'm sure its not as simple as "I pick things up and put them down," PLEASE clarify. I look forward to your review. Thank you
Francisco, Body Beast is great heavy lifting with some very challenging set configurations (Dynamic Set Training). All the things you've learned through P90X and X2 are still used. The aim is muscle hypertrophy, gaining size. Nutrition is really what enables you to reach that end. If you don't eat like a Beast, at a surplus, Body Beast will not magically transform you with 15 extra pounds. Also natural gains in muscle are slower than you might think. The guys in Body Beast have spent years upon years building their bodies. No one should believe 90 days will make you look like Sagi! As far as equiptment, you can do the program with equipment you already have from X2. Dumbbells, pull up bar, and stability ball. You can add more like a bench and EZ bar. Body Beast is not equipment heavt, at least not any heavier than X2 (med balls, rumble roller, plyo boxes, etc). It is just new equipment for some. One benefit to BB's equipment is that there is a lot of used equipment for sale online that would work for BB. I am really enjoying the lifting and new program! I feel great after every workout and want more. You can do Body Beast and still be very functionally fit.
Coach...I've probably missed this elsewhere..but as you said, building mass is more a function of "eating" the right foods and in the right quantities...so as we all increase our calarie intake..what are the right macro splits? 50% Carbs, 30 % Protein, and 20% fats?? I know its not the fat shredder percentages,nor should they be the maintenance percentages...Thanks.
Groove, you got it. 50C/30P/20F is a good place to start. You'll have plenty of protein and fats at the higher calorie mark. The added carbohydrate are really what help you rebuild and grow!
Can't wait to start this! But so true about finding a purpose. Before I even read this and started P90X. My goal or purpose was to sadly, get a build like Ryan Reynolds role from blade trinity. Needless to say, I am almost there. Lose a few more percent on BF, bulk up a lil and I will be there. It is possible, if you have a purpose and the right mind set...like beast mode ;) Beast Up team!
i would like to see some details of equipment used for the program in your review. :) i think i would only be interested in this as a hybrid. i just love the p90 series too much, and don't want to be a 'beast' per say. i spent too much effort reducing mass.
BodyBeast is the future of bodybuilding in home fitness. Im high off the BodyBeast program as well Coach!
Iv been doing Body Beast for a week now and I have found my purpose!!! Cant wait for the 90 day transformation. Its going to rock!!
Hey Coach, i was thinking of doing the Lean version, was wondering if it will hurt my results to sub Insanity/Asylum for Beast Cardio. It seemed like a walk in the park compared to what I'm used to... what do you think? And oh goodnes, the lifting work outs are soooo amazing. So if anyone is on the fence about whether to get Body Beast, definitely do it!
Kay, the Lean version is still a bulking version. Just with an extra week of cutting at the end. If you are trying to put on mass, maintaining that surplus of calories is important. Stick with the Beast Cardio. You don't want to burn an excess amount of calories because then you'd have to find a way to eat them back! Also, doing the program as designed is a really good thing for the first round. Trust Sagi! After this challenge, you can see that the Beast workouts will be great for hyrbids!
Hey coach, I'm eating out today but not letting it be an excuse for a cheat meal. I checked the website and found a meal. Just wanted to know if you think its a good choice------------ Grilled chicken breast, lettuce, and tomatoes for a side salad and then Fresh chicken breast with cajun spices as a main meal (I'm going to ask them to grill it). And there was a bunch of other stuff with the salad and chicken but i took it away. Do you think this is a good meal.
Man I was on the fence about getting this. Very content with P90X, X2 and cycling. But man you sure are selling me on this. I think after my current round (half way through I will be going after body beast with reckless abandonment. Keep the updates coming.
So true Coach! Sagi is an awesome motivator as well as being entertaining during the workout! The Beast workouts are amazing so far. Besides being completely sore I feel fantastic!
Coach; After seeing your X2 results, I can't imagine what your Body Beast results are going to look like... Looking forward to seeing another great transformation. Bring It!
coach after seeing my progress pic i sent you do you think body beast is a smart move or stick with p90x2? ....yes i want some size.....!!!
Ken, if you've committed to P90X2, finish it! You can gain mass with P90X2, mass is more of a function of diet than anything else.
