BBG Week 1

Hi Friends, I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I’m so excited to share with y’all a new journey I started last week, Bikini Body Guide (BBG). I started BBG after seeing a few other bloggers talk about BBG and I was like “What the heck is BBG?” THEN, I saw there transformations and I was like yup, I’m totally starting this.

Now some of you will say I look great, and I totally thank you for that, but I only had Ava 6 months ago, and I’ll be honest, there is some loose skin I want to tighten and want at least some baby abs back. Plus, my love with Chick-Fil-A is no where close to ending, so I figured I could at least work out a little.

Another reason I choose to try BBG was the fact that I didn’t like going to a gym after work. Ava was already at daycare all day and I have serious mom guilt about going to the gym and putting her in daycare again.

I wanted to answer a few questions just in case you have them about BBG:

1.What is BBG?
– 3x a week: resistance training for ~30 minutes
– 2-3x a week: low intensity steady state (LISS) cardio for 30-45 minutes (so for me it’s strolling the neighborhood with Ava)
I worked out Monday-Saturday and took Sunday off. *Rest days are super important for BBG.

2. How does BBG work?
It’s two circuits that you complete in approx. 7 minutes. The circuits repeat twice and then you have a 30 second break.

Ex. Time Circuit One for 7 minutes (if you finish before the timer is up, repeat circuit 1 from the beginning until the timer goes off)
Rest 30-90 seconds before moving on to Circuit Two
Time Circuit Two for 7 minutes (if you finish before the timer is up, repeat circuit 2 from the beginning until the timer goes off)
Rest 30 seconds
Repeat steps 1-3 so that you’ve completed each circuit twice!

3. How long is BBG?
It’s as 12 week program, but I see people often doing it over and over again.

I’m not going to lie, I was EXTREMELY sore after the first day (I took a few days off #guilty) but I picked back and and so excited I did. I’m excited to start Week 2 today and see my journey. I love the program so far and I’m going to do a full review with before and after progress pictures when I finish. If any of y’all have completed BBG, I’d love to see your transformations!
