Ever since I completed my first round of P90X, I was waiting for Beachbody to release a mass gaining program, and in July of 2012 they did just that by releasing Body Beast! Shortly thereafter, I decided to commit myself to the new program, and the results I got were unreal! Let me share my story.
When I completed P90X, I felt like I was too skinny. I was in excellent shape, but I really wanted to put some mass back on, and that’s when I decided to do a modified P90X schedule, making adjustments to my diet, supplements, and adding in some heavy lifting on top of that. It worked, and I ended up gaining back 15 lbs in solid muscle, but it was very tough explaining exactly what I did to the people that I coach that were also looking to gain mass. For years I waited for Beachbody to come out with a mass gaining program, and finally my wishes came true when they released Body Beast. I had no idea I would get unreal Body Beast results!
What is Body Beast? Body Beast is an all around complete but TOUGH diet, supplement, and workout program. It involves eating a TON of healthy calories, taking the right supplements at the right time, and heavy lifting involving a combination of progressive sets, dynamic sets, and drop sets. There is very little cardio (you have some if you do Lean Beast), which is important if you’re trying to gain mass.
What are the Body Beast supplements? There are 4 main supplements to get the best Body Beast results: Fuel Shot, Creatine Monohydrate, Base Shake, and the Suma pills. I take the 2.5 grams creatine 25 minutes pre-workout along with 8 oz. of non-acidic fruit juice, such as apple or grape juice, and I take the Suma pills at the same time. Post workout I take another 2.5 grams of creatine blended with whey protein and my Shakeology. These supplements play a HUGE role in your Body Beast results!
How much weight do you need for Body Beast and what equipment is involved? I have used a range from 5 lbs all the way to 90 lbs. Most people don’t have that type of weight at their house, so it’s OK to go to the gym to do Body Beast. All you have to do is take the Body Beast workout sheets with you. Also, you will need a pull-up bar, EZ curl bar, an adjustable bench, and a dumbbell set.
My Body Beast results have been UNREAL! I have gained about 12 lbs, most of that muscle, and I just have a few weeks left. My strength has increased drastically as well, and I have been able to notice a HUGE difference in the mirror, especially in my arms, shoulders, and back. I have 16 1/2 in. arms, which is the biggest they have EVER been! If you’re looking to gain mass, Body Beast is the perfect program to do so.
