So here we are 3 months later! I have been through the BBG program….well kind of. If you read my original BBG post and what I was doing for fitness you know that I was doing half of BBG. I was following the program but for all the resistance workouts I was doing each circuit only once and not twice like the program suggests and I was adding extra cardio instead of that extra circuit. Then I was doing 3-4 days of running.
So I’ve had a lot of DM’s and questions about BBG…Did it work? Did I see results? Did I use the app or use the PDF?
Well I have to say I really love the program. I’ve heard people getting bored of the program but I didn’t find that to be true for me. I think the program is super challenging and I was never bored!! If you are motivated and want to push yourself…this program is awesome and you won’t be bored.
Was it hard? Heck yes even going one time through there were days….maybe weeks where I could barely walk I was so sore haha. I love it though! If it wasn’t challenging then for me I would get bored! I am the type of person where I want to dread my workouts and after feel super accomplished. Why do it if its not challenging!?
Did I see results? I did see results…but I don’t feel “transformed”. However I feel A HECK of a lot stronger! I feel like I can go through my day to day life easier. My muscles feel toned and I feel like I have more stamina to get through the day….carrying kids…carrying toys…ya know doing mom life. As far as weight loss, I probably lost about 6-7 pounds which is pretty substantial and was pretty much the extra baby weight I was carrying. I also feel like I gained a ton of muscle though. Even after having Eli I felt so flabby. I honestly feel like I am starting to get back to what I was before Eli. I had a lot of natural muscle tone before and I feel like I am getting closer to that. I don’t however feel like I am totally transformed into some super skinny super muscular person BUT I did just have a baby 6 months ago so my body has been through a lot. I have to say the results for me were worth the hard work I put in!!
As far as the app and the PDF, I personally used the PDF. I had used the app for a trial week before I started the program and I didn’t really enjoy using the app. I like knowing whats next and being able to not press a button and just go into the next exercise. Also I had times during BBG where I would have to stop after a circuit and handle the kiddos. (Rory would wake up from nap or Eli would need to use the potty….things like that) So I would have to take a little longer than 30 seconds in between each circuit but I don’t feel like that took away from the workout when I did have to stop.
Whats next? Well I love the program so I am back at WEEK 1!! This time I have decided to do the two rounds. I actually did legs on Monday twice through and BOY am I sore today!!! See still super challenging!! I have to say the program is amazing if you are motivated enough to stick to it and compete with yourself!
I hope you enjoyed my thoughts! Let me know if you have any questions and I can get them answered for you asap!
