On August 1st, I started the new #mbf Muscle Burns Fat Beachbody program with Megan Davies and all of the people who joined her remotely from their homes via Zoom. The following is my experience.
I started July 31st actually with the #mbf Muscle Burns Fat free sample workout and loved it so much that I bought the #mbf Accessories Bundle. Since I already have Beachbody On Demand and #mbf doesn’t come out until October. The bundle comes with VIP Early Access to stream #mbf and #mbfa™, the #mbf and #mbfa Get Started Guides with Workout Calendars and the BOD® Rope, the Cordless Indoor Jump Rope. Unfortunately, the program was successful far beyond pandemic projections and the BOD Rope will be out of stock for a few weeks. I will have it in time to do #mbfa (Muscle Burns Fat Advanced) though.
#mbf Muscle Burns Fat – Week 1
The Week 1, Day 1 workout is Lower Body Burn and since my legs are strong from running and walking, it was quite doable. It is 35:00.
Day 2 is Core Circuit, so I went from my strongest muscles to my weakest. I was thankful actually to have that workout right away in the program. It is 30:00 of cardio and core blocks maximize the fat-burning.
Day 3 is Upper Body Burn and Megan focuses on one muscle group at a time, so I am definitely feeling the workout. It is 32:00 and hits your chest, back, shoulders, and arms with more classic weightlifting and asymmetrical training.
I should add my embarrassing before picture now as well as let you know that I am fueled pre and post workout every day with Vegan Chocolate Shakeology. Most of the time, I make it the same way but if there is fruit that needs to be finished up, I add it. The basic mix is Vegan Chocolate, baby spinach, a banana, flax milk with protein and coconut milk.
Day 4 is Core Circuit again with new moves and a new AMRAP (as many rounds as possible).
I am very sore and tired today, so I just did a 52:00 walk and listened to personal development listening to the video, “I’m Going to Make It” and taking in some beautiful scenery.
Day 5 is Full Body Burn and it is a head to toe workout. I started it greeted with the very energetic and lively crew that works out along with Megan!
I’ve decided to alternate walking/running and #mbf, so today, I did a 52:00 walk and tomorrow I will finish the first week of #mbf. Next Wednesday my daughters start online school and I will have less flexibility in the morning, so I need to take advantage of the few last days that I have to walk.
Day 6 is Power Ignite and it is a 25-minute EMOM (every minute on the minute) workout that challenges you to do a specific number of reps during each minute. The faster you finish, the more rest you get.
Day 7 is Dynamic Recovery and it is an active stretch and flow recovery class that will help ease tension, boost mobility, and optimize your recovery.
#mbf Muscle Burns Fat – Week 2
August 11th means the last day of summer break (5 months long) for Albuquerque students so I did a 52:00 walk in the cool of morning while I still could.
