LIIFT4: Lift. HIIT. Rest. Repeat. Just 4 days a week!

LIIFT4.Header-715x358.jpg

Strong and lean in just 4 days a week — Super Trainer Joel Freeman is about to unleash one of the biggest fitness programs of 2018 that will get you building lean muscle and burning a ton of calories.

You’ll pack into just about 30 minutes on average what would normally take an hour and a half at the gym.

It’s called LIIFT4, and it’s an efficient, no-nonsense workout that combines weightlifting and calorie-burning high-intensity interval training (HIIT).

LIIFT4 launches exclusively on Beachbody On Demand on October 1st, but LIIFT4 will be available for sale for VIP Early Access on June 11th, 2018, only on TeamBeachbody.com. Workouts for VIP Early Access go live on July 16th.

The moves are based on classic lifting techniques that let you isolate, stabilize, and focus each rep on the muscle group you’re working.

Every workout ends with a quick core routine for a full-body build and burn that leaves you shredded.

There are no gimmicky moves, no overly complicated routines, and no opportunity for boredom because you’ll do all 32 workouts of the program in real time with Joel and the cast, never doing the same workout twice.


Here’s the Remarkable Way LIIFT4 Works

Because you’re only working out 4 days a week, Joel makes every second count during each workout; they’re structured to keep you lifting on pace and constantly moving, while timed rest periods allow you to catch your breath before attacking each set.

Joel believes if you train smart you’ll never overtrain. Three recovery days a week give muscles time to repair so you can push harder, lift heavier, and get better results faster.

There are two phases for maximum results: For the first 6 weeks, you’ll build, cut, and define your body, followed by 2 weeks to burn through calories and fat, revealing your ultimate physique.

And since a hardworking body needs fuel, we’ve put together a LIIFT4 Nutrition Guide to make sure you’re getting all the protein, nutrients, and healthy carbs you need for your best results.

Joel also wants to make sure you drink your daily Shakeology. Each superfood nutrition shake has a healthy blend of potent ingredients, including high-quality proteins, probiotics, and essential vitamins and minerals.

To take your workouts and results even further, he’s added the performance-enhancing benefits of Beachbody Performance to your daily routine. This performance-enhancing supplement system can help you get the most out of LIIFT4.

Beachbody Performance gives you more energy to work out and helps you recover faster, so you can hit it again. Motivation has never come easier than with these incredible supplements.*


Who Is Joel Freeman?

You know Joel from CORE DE FORCE, the mixed martial arts-inspired workout phenomenon he created with Jericho McMatthews.

This time, he’s flying solo — and he’s pumped to get you motivated with the same workouts he does at home that have given him crazy-good results.

Working over 15 years in the health and fitness industry, Joel has held certifications from the American Fitness Association of America (AFAA) and the American Council on Exercise (ACE), and he’s currently a National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) Certified Personal Trainer and Behavior Change Specialist.

From running day-to-day operations in gyms in Texas and Washington to directing Group X programming at Gold’s Gym SoCal and becoming an International Fitness Presenter — he’s done it all.


What Equipment Do I Need?

All you need is a set of light, medium, and heavy weights (depending on your fitness level), or you can substitute with resistance bands.

How to lose weight using MINDFUL NUTRITION!

I have to admit something…
When I first heard about 2B Mindset, I was skeptical.

Here’s why. After just completing 80 Day Obsession and other Beachbody workout programs, I didn’t know if I’d be able to embrace a new Beachbody program that solely focuses on nutrition — ZERO exercise required. I love working out! It's something I find to be a non negotiable for me.

But then I heard what the creator of the program had to say. Her story.

MEET ILANA, DIETITIAN & CREATOR OF 2B MINDSET

Ilana is the REAL DEAL. She understands the struggle of emotional eating, she knows what it takes to overcome it. To lose the weight. To build a new type of relationship with food. That’s because she went through it.

She struggled with emotional eating since she was a child. And she lost 100 lbs (and kept it off) by completely transforming her mindset!

You need to see her story.

Seriously, WATCH IT!


WHAT IS 2B MINDSET ALL ABOUT?

2B Mindset is Beachbody’s first nutrition-based program. But it’s not a “diet.” It’s about changing your relationship with food and changing your mindset. If you check out Ilana’s Instagram, you’ll get a pretty good feel for what I mean!

You can still have BIG portions of food.
You’ll still be able to eat everything you love.
There’s nothing you “can’t” have.
And you’ll still lose weight!

Everything I know about nutrition, and the only thing that has really worked for me, has been using the Portion Fix containers. They’ve taught me so much. But I’m excited to step outside of my comfort zone with 2B Mindset and utilize all the expertise that Ilana has put into this!


HOW DO I KNOW IF IT’S RIGHT FOR ME?

Honestly, without even trying this program, I can say that 2B Mindset is for EVERYONE.

  • If you want a healthy relationship with food.
  • If you struggle with cravings.
  • If you’re an emotional eater.
  • If you want to lose weight.
  • If you can’t exercise.
  • If you’ve tried dieting and failed.
  • If you’re working out and still not losing weight.

If you can relate to ANY of the above (and, come on, we can ALL relate to the first one), then 2B Mindset is right for you.


Let’s get down to some great questions about the program…

WHAT WILL I GET WITH 2B MINDSET?

Let’s talk about the intangibles. Sure, you'll get some getting starting booklets, progress tracker, water bottle, and a few other things when you sign up.

But let’s talk about the BENEFITS, the things that “diets” can’t provide.

  • Strategies for real situations (restaurants, parties, etc.)
  • Advice to overcome common weight loss challenges
  • You’ll learn nutrition basics from a REAL dietitian
  • Discover plenty of new, delicious recipes
  • You’ll get simple grocery shopping lists
  • There will be time-saving tips for meal prepping
  • Along with so much more!

ARE THERE ANY 2B MINDSET WORKOUTS?

Nope! There is absolutely no working out required.

That doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t or can’t work out, it just means that working out is a bonus! If you DO want to work out while using 2B Mindset, talk to me and we can figure out the best fitness program for you.

Let’s Talk

HOW MANY DAYS DOES 2B MINDSET LAST?

It’s time to get things straight — there’s NO time-limit for this program.

Unlike 21 Day Fix or 80 Day Obsession, there’s no end date. That’s because it’s a lifestyle change, not a diet or a fitness program.

There may come a time when you feel like you don’t need the videos from Ilana for advice, or you can stop using the tracker sheet provided, but that mindset doesn’t end. It’s something that you will continue on with in your day-to-day life, not because you HAVE to — because you WANT to!

SO HOW IS IT SO DIFFERENT FROM DIETING?

The main focus of the program IS NOT on the food itself, it’s on your mind. Most diets aren’t sustainable. They deprive you, they make you say “no” which makes you crave those foods even more!

  • You’ll never feel like you’re starving

  • You won’t be counting calories
  • There’s no such thing as “cheating”
  • You’re encouraged to say YES to food

Now we’re talking my language — yes to food!

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS AND THE PORTION FIX CONTAINERS?

Well, first, there are no containers.

I know. Ever since 21 Day Fix launched, the majority of our programs have been based around the Portion Fix containers. And they work great, but I’m sure most of us don’t want to live the rest of our lives with these containers laying around the kitchen! Right?!

21 Day Fix vs. 2B Mindset Meal Plan

  • 21DF: External controls (containers)
  • 2BM: Internal controls (mindset)
  • 21DF: Highly structured meal plan
  • 2BM: Flexible eating
  • 21DF: Portion-control eating rules
  • 2BM: Plate-visualization
  • 21DF: Calorie/macro based
  • 2BM: Nutritional & behavioral guidelines

Traveling Overseas: How To Stay On Track

Early this year, I flew back to the Philippines (my home country) for some much needed R&R and also a change of pace and scenery. My flight was more than 24 hours long and my stay was about a month. People often fall off the wagon when they travel for work and especially on vacation. Here are some tips of how I was able to stay on track with my nutrition even when I was traveling and away for a month!

SaltFacial: Get your skin glowing with this organic and natural skin treatment!

IMG_6497.JPG

Tried out the newest SaltFacial treatment at Ageless Beauty Center in Okemos, MI. They are the only facility in the area and the second in Michigan to own this machine. I'm sure you're curious about this procedure especially since it's a celebrity favorite!


Benefits of The SaltFacial:

Visible Results After Your First Treatment

Beneficial For All Skin Types

No Negative Side Effects Or Downtime

Improves Tone, Texture & Color For Noticeably Healthier Skin

All Natural Sea Salt…No Harmful Chemicals


----


I really loved the procedure. My skin was indeed glowing and clear after it. I didn't have any downtime and was able to go to work right after. The only setback I had was not being able to sweat on the day I got it done just so the skin can rest and recuperate. I didn't have any redness or irritation from it. I highly recommend it!

Subscribe to my YouTube Channel because I will be creating more videos related not only to fitness but also about skin care and beauty as well! <3

Day 2 Shift Shop Test Group Strength 25

How I felt after doing Strength 25 early this morning😂😂😂

IMG_3708.JPG

I must say this workout was amazing since I do love lifting weights but man, did I feel the burn!!!🔥🔥🔥🔥 I had to drop weights because my muscles were failing which felt so great!

I also had an extra ab workout from laughing so much at Chris Downing. Wow! He's hilarious!!!! I was waiting for his false teeth/gummy braces teeth to just show up in the middle of the workout!😂 If you don't know what I'm talking about, check out his videos on his FB. THIS GUY IS HILARIOUS!

So today was a very challenging and fun workout! I'm looking forward to doing it again and seeing my progress in strength.

For reference, I used 15-25 lbs. for dumbbells. Had to go light because this is focused on volume on time rather than specific reps. I ended up doing drop sets when I felt my form was failing. It felt great!

The instruction in this video is phenomenal. I truly appreciate the cueing and the corrections especially as a Beachbody Live instructor myself. It really helps you focus on the exercise and nailing down the proper form and preventing injury even when you're getting entertained with Chris' jokes all throughout the workout. 😂💪🏼💯

I really enjoyed it even more than Speed especially since his playful personality shines through more in this workout. Helps lighten up the mood when you're struggling hard in the moves. I like that. It's reminiscent of how funny Tony Horton is in his videos but totally different type of humour. I like laughing while crying😂😜💪🏼🔥

This workout is an ass kicking (yeah my glutes were literally on fire here🍑🔥) good time!!!! I can't wait for all of you to try it! Let me know what you think!!!
