Body Beast looks like a man-only clubhouse at first, but I love heavy lifting heavy weights. Even in my teens, I loved how muscle looked on women and started researching how to gain lean muscle with out looking bulking. The simple fact is:
We can’t bulk up like our boyfriends, husbands, or man-friends because we don’t have that much testosterone.
Testosterone is what allows a man to gain massive amounts of muscle while we have to really work to make small muscle gains in comparison.
Check out Heather’s results!
I can’t believe the gains I saw in my shoulders. They look sexy and strong all at the same time. I was thin, almost too thin before I started Body Beast, now I look like I’ve always wanted to. – Heather D.
Weight lifting for women is going to just help us be leaner, tighter, and smaller. I don’t know about you, but I’m all about that!!
Lean muscle mass actually helps you burn more calories even while you sleep too because muscle needs more fuel (calories) than fat cells. Can you imagine having a workout that works for hours after you finished it? Body Beast (or any heavy lifting program) is it!
Why I Like Body Beast
I like Body Beast thought because it’s something you can do at home and learn proper form. Unless you are working with a trainer every single time you are in the gym, you aren’t going to get the same tips and reminders on proper form like you do with Body Beast.
Plus the workouts change every month which helps me from getting bored, and it actually helps you see results faster because you’re body is constantly challenged.
Sagi, the trainer behind Body Beast, uses Dynamic Set Training which is a fancy way of saying he uses weights different ways to help you fatigue your muscles, activate more of your muscle, and help you see results quicker.
Besides getting results and being healthy, I also like being able to drop serious weight lifting terms like Single Sets, Super Sets, Giant Sets, Progression Sets, Drop Sets, Tempo Sets. Get ready to be impressing some people!

Will Body Beast Make Me Fat or Bulky?
I truly feel amazing! I have so much energy now. I chose Body Beast because I wanted to lose weight, but I also wanted to have some muscle definition. I was able to achieve both. Body Beast got me in the best shape of my life!—Shanda N.
We’ve already established we won’t get bulky because we don’t have as much testosterone as men, but isn’t it so much better to SEE that you won’t? Shanda looks absolutely amazing! While the workouts are intense and have you utilizing your muscles, your nutrition is key to having great results. If you eat a lean diet with protein, healthy fats, and carbs like veggies, you’re going to gain muscle without gaining body fat. Natalie M. lost 2.5 inches in 90 days!

I’ve Heard of “Bulking” in Your Diet…What’s that?
Fitness competitors will go into a “bulking” phase before prepping for a competition to help them gain more lean muscle later. Sounds weird right?
Here’s the science behind it: If you have body fat, your body will use it for energy after your workouts, which is the most important factor in how quickly you gain lean muscle mass when strength training. When you lean out your diet and only have a little body fat, your body doesn’t have as much energy to pull from after your workouts. When you body gets desperate for energy, it’ll start breaking down your muscle to fuel itself.
So you may choose to use the “bulk” part of the nutrition plan laid out in the Body Beast Nutrition plan. It’s spot on to what competitors do; however, it can be hard mentally for some women to bulk because you are going to look a little bloated and tight during that time. For that reason, I know several women who skip this step in the diet. I’m not a doctor or trainer, but I think whether you do the bulk stage is completely up to you and depends on your goals.
Whatever you decide, your lean muscle mass is going to be more condensed (leaner, tighter, and smaller!) than 5lbs of fat. If you do decide to skip the bulking stage of the nutrition plan, make sure to really listen to your body and fuel it properly. The workouts are intense and you’ll need energy to get through them and for your muscles to recover.
The Body Beast Phases
Like other popular workouts, Body Beast uses a 3-phase system for 90 days. The first phase is Build. It focuses on providing you a strong foundation for what’s to come. The second phase is the Bulking stage I mentioned above. The finale phase helps shred off that added bulk and see lean muscle mass.
What Size Weights Does a Woman Need Starting Body Beast?
There is no universal size weight to start with unfortunately. You just want your muscles to shake and have the last 2 reps be super challenging. With that said, I personally use the Select Techs by BoFlex because they allow you to select a weight between 5 to 52.5lbs! I’ve never used the 52.5lbs, but I know it’s there. :P
Body Beast Supplements -What are They, and What do They do?
Before going into details of the supplements, always consult with a healthcare professional if pregnant, breast feeding, providing to a child, or if you have any other unique or special needs. These supplements are also not for children.
The Challenge Pack comes with the supplements at a discounted price if they sound like a good fit for you.
Fuel Shot can kick-start your energy and recovery! Fuel Shot helps you fight muscle fatigue because it’s a blend of dextrose- and maltodextrin-based energy drink. The blend helps deliver nutrition to the muscle fibers to give you more power during your workouts and replenish the electrolytes lost during a workout which helps with your recovery. It helps you gain lean muscle and allows your muscle endurance and recovery to improve. The Hardcore Base Shake This shake is formulated just for Body Beast and is protein-heavy which helps muscle growth and recovery. The Super Suma This one sounds impressive right? Rightly so- it has no junk in it (no risky ingredients, sugars, starches, synthetic materials, yeast, grains, or excipients), and it does a number of good things for the body. It helps the protein process inside the body to do it’s job, helps strengthen the body, enhances testosterone production (still not as high as a man since we have estrogen), and can help you increase your muscle strength, size, and endurance. And….CREATINE….no worries. I didn’t know this before researching, but Creatine is not a steroid. I repeat – not a steroid. There is a whole lot of research and science behind creatine, and I encourage you to look into it more but I’ll give you the simplified version. When we strength train, our liver, kidneys and pancreas creates a compound called phosphocreatine (aka creatine phosphate). It’s only a limited supply though and works with Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in the body. ATP gives energy to your muscles to make them work. When our bodies have enough phosphocreatine, we’re able to access ATP and get in a couple more reps to help you have greater endurance, strength, and stamina.
