4 Weeks of The Prep vs 6 Weeks of The Work

Beachbody originally launched, 6 Weeks of THE WORK, but then realized it was a bit more advanced than most people were ready for.

So they developed, 4 Weeks of THE PREP. 

The workouts are similar to THE WORK, but they’re designed to help you go from an intermediate exerciser to an advanced exerciser in just a month’s time!

Here are the main differences:

  • The workouts are 30-35 minutes versus 45 minutes
  • Their is a modifier offered in every Prep workout
  • You’ll have to repeat a couple of workouts (10 workouts are included, and you’ll repeat each twice).
  • The moves aren’t as intense as THE WORK.

What equipment is required for The Prep?

Just like THE WORK, you’ll need light, medium, and heavy dumbbells, as well as, resistance loops and strength slides.

You may also want to have a chin-up bar and a mat. 

You’ll also need Beachbody on Demand for either program.

Here are our favorite types of equipment:

How Long are the Workouts?

How will I know I’m ready for THE WORK?

You can always repeat 4 Weeks of THE PREP to build up to THE WORK.

If you’re not sure if you’re ready for the advanced program, we recommend doing the Fit Test inside of the program before starting the workouts.

If you don’t feel like you passed the Fit Test, repeat THE PREP workouts again.

4 Weeks of THE PREP Workouts

The PREP includes 10 workouts, and you’ll repeat each workout twice. You’ll also do Range & Repair (the recovery workout) four times throughout the program. 

The workouts are:

Push: This strength workout focuses primarily on the front of your body using pushing exercises that target and help strengthen your chest, triceps, and quads.

Legs: This workout hammers your lower half, using a combination of weight training and agility work to help you build strength, power, and definition.

Endurance & Agility: Burn fat as you build endurance and agility in this intense, heart-pounding workout that leaves no muscle untouched.

Pull: Target your back, biceps, and hamstrings with pulling exercises that help you build a stronger, more powerful physique.

Full Body Tempo: You’ll feel the burn with this total-body workout that uses slow, controlled movements to increase time under tension—a proven stimulus for muscle growth.

Isometrics: This challenging, low-impact workout builds strength and endurance from head to toe with static holds that help optimize muscle recruitment and time under tension.

Total Body Push/Pull: A combination of pushing and pulling exercises hit both your upper and lower body from the front and back to help build balanced, full-body strength.

Strength & Power: You’ll develop both with this hybrid workout, which incorporates resistance training and plyometric exercises to help you increase strength and power all over.

Cardio & Core: Agility drills, plyometric moves, and core exercises will have your heart pounding and sweat pouring to help you burn fat, build speed and agility, and sculpt a killer six-pack.

The Crucible: Do you have what it takes to complete this grueling test of physical and mental strength? Stay tough and give every rep your all!

Range & Repair: Enhance your recovery and exercise performance with mobility exercises designed to ease tension and increase range of motion from head to toe.

What about 4 Weeks of THE PREP Meal Plan?

Amoila recommends using the 2B Mindset or Ultimate Portion Fix diet plans to maximize your results.

Since this program (and 6 Weeks of THE WORK) is intensive, we recommend the Ultimate Portion Fix out of the two.

We also suggest using Beachbody’s Performance line. If you had to pick just one supplement – we’d pick Energize.

It helps you power through the hard workouts. (Fruit Punch is our favorite flavor).

Do You Really Need the Supplements?

Also, if you’re wanting to build muscle mass or reduce muscle soreness, we also suggest Recharge and Creatine.
