Body Beast Exercises Guide: Introducing Higher Intensity Exercises

Anyone who is interested in building up some serious lean muscle has already heard of Body Beast.

This post will provide more detailed information about this fitness program with an emphasis on special Body Beast Exercises in each of the routine phases.

Body Beast program lasts for 90 days during which you will follow the program combined with a detailed meal plan for optimal results. Of course, the overall progress varies and depends on individual preferences and starting level. Moreover, you can repeat Body Beast as many times as you want until you achieve satisfactory results.

Start working on getting huge

If you are ready to start working on getting huge, prepare yourself to work out one hour 6 times a week. Body Beast is one of the most intensive Beach Body’s programs and it is based on the combination of:

  • sets – resistance and
  • repetitions with only a short recovery.

Dynamic Set Training

This is Dynamic Set Training and it is specially designed to help you get rid of any excessive fat and start building up lean muscle. Body Beast has given amazing results for both men and women.

Three Blocks

There are three phases, or as team Body Beast named them – blocks. Each phase lasts for one month and will put you through various intensity exercises for:

  • arms,
  • legs,
  • back and shoulders,
  • abs and
  • finally cardio.

Build phase

The program begins with the Build phase where you will start with the heavy liftings and doing super, giant and single sets. Since this block is rather intensive, it will help you with muscle definition for the first month. Moreover, it will also prepare you for the next phase, or the Bulk block.

Bulk block

During this phase, you will be introduced to higher intensity exercises. Bulk phase contains even higher intensity exercises with progressive combo and force sets which will additionally increase your body mass and of course help creating more lean muscle.

Beast phase

Finally, the third phase, also known as the Beast will demand from you to do all of the 12 Body Beast workouts with the addition of more abs and cardio.

There are several reasons why Body Beast program provides such amazing results. One of those reasons is definitely a winning combo of warm up sets followed by the heavy lifting sets.

The routine has two different set plans

Firstly you will do 15 repetitions with one weight, and after that, you will add more weight while bringing down on the repetitions.

Therefore, the first scenario is 15, 12 and 8 repetitions, followed by yet another 8 repetitions and lighter weights repetitions 12 and 15.

The second round has the same pattern of 4 sets for you to repeat 15, 12, 8 and again 8 times.

Full body workout

The Body Beast is a full body workout and the results will be visible on your entire body. Of course, don’t get disappointed if you don’t get everything the first time around. Results may vary from person to person since there are many factors that should be taken into consideration prior starting with the program.

Things like age, genetics and in what kind of shape is the person may affect the overall results. However, even with everything into consideration, if you strictly follow the eating plan and workout schedule, your results will still be much faster compared to standard workout regimes.

Body Beast Diet Guide for Building Muscles

In order to get the best results from Body Beast workout program, you have to follow Body Beast Diet Plan.

It is well-known how much a proper diet is important for reaching your body’s full potential. Therefore, Sagi Kalev came up with the professional Body Beast diet plan, specially developed for bodybuilding.

Proper nutrition is essential for our bodies. What we eat breaks down in our system, going directly to our brain and other organs, including hormones, bones, and muscles. Logically, the better care we take about our nutrition, healthier and stronger we will be. Not to mention overall performance, concentration, and endurance improvements.

Body Beast diet for building muscles

Body Beast is a workout regime that aims to build your muscles. Therefore, you need calories in order to get huge and a lot of them. Actually, Body Beast diet is the core of the entire routine.

According to the meal plan, you have 5-6 meals a day. In some cases, even more, depending on your calorie level. Don’t forget to hydrate your muscles between the meals.

As for the meals, each of them is a mixture of three primary macronutrients – protein, carbs, and fats. Despite the popular belief that one is better than another, the reality is your body needs all of them since they work together in building muscles.

Of course, protein is essential for gaining mass, since it is the only nutrient that can be converted to muscle. After consuming proteins, it breaks down in your system in amino acids. Amino acids reassemble in your body’s own proteins, creating a muscle-like tissue.

Carbohydrates are a vital source of the energy for any weight lifting workout. The reason they work best is because they supply your body with quick energy uplift. If you don’t eat enough carbs, your body will compensate them from another source, which means it can break down its own muscle.

As for the fat, apart from adding up the energy as well, it helps fight inflammation from joint pain. Fat also provides the relief from muscle soreness. In overall, digesting fats will significantly affect quicker recovery. Additionally, omega-3 fatty acids support growth and hormone production.

The Body Beast diet plan may seem complicated but eating in accordance with it is rather simple.

Calculate your calories

This is the first step when starting with Body Beast diet. In a detailed meal plan, you will find Body Beast Calorie Calculator to determine your daily needs. After doing that, you just find Body Beast Portion Chart appropriate for your calorie bracket.

Food Portions

Finally, after establishing your calories and portions, all you need to do is eat the proper amount of foods. There isn’t a specific meal plan; you can be creative as you like, assembling your own meals from the Food Portion Lists. The only rule is to stay within allotted portions.

And if you are not up for brainstorming for new recipes, there are Body Beast Recipes, specially created for bodybuilders.

Naturally, all of the recipes have the right amount of ingredients from each of Food Portion Lists. If you have a busy schedule, you can make a larger quantity, share into portions and freeze. That way you have meals ready for the entire week.

Finally, the Beast-0-Matic Mass Gainer Shakes are high-calorie shakes you can make using Food Portion list as an inspiration.

It doesn’t matter if you are experienced in nutrition or you are starting for the first time. Body Beast diet is carefully designed to build you up and you will easily fit within this framework.

Sagi Kalev
Body Beast,

Sagi Kalev – The Legendary Man Behind Body Beast

Sagi Kalev, once skinny and bullied kid, today a successful professional with one of the most recognizable faces in the world of fitness and bodybuilding.

He first caught the public eye in his home Israel after winning two Mr. Israel titles.

In 1993 Kalev decided to move to the US and further pursue a career in modeling and bodybuilding. He was first discovered in 1996 while working out in the local gym in Los Angeles.

Not long after that followed the numerous photo shootings for:

  • Muscle & Fitness,
  • Iron Man,
  • Reps,
  • Men’s Workout

and various other hardcore muscle magazines. Moreover, Kalev had guest appearances on hit show Baywatch and The Young and the Restless series.

Functional medical expert

After getting a degree in physical education from the University of Central Florida, Kalev further advanced by becoming clinical nutritionist and functional medical expert as well as the Senior Director of Professional Personal Trainers Association (PROPTA). PROPTA is one of the most respectable institutes for Fitness and Nutrition Certifications, located in Los Angeles.

Sagi Kalev & Beachbody

Kalev partnered with Beachbody in 2011, when he developed and trained Body Beast workouts program which was launched the following year.

As oppose to Beachbody’s numerous programs focused on weight loss, the Body Beast is created for everyone who want to gain muscles.

Gain lean muscle mass, size and confidence with Body Beast

The purpose of Body Beast is to gain lean muscle mass, to also gain size and to gain confidence. It’s so unique that there’s nothing like it. It’s not focused on weight loss, even though everything out there is weight loss, weight loss, weight loss.

The main thing about Body Beast is how to get bigger, Kalev said about the program.

Within the 90 days, which is the time needed for Body Beast program, there are three phases:

  • Build,
  • Bulk and
  • Beast.

The first phase is the one where the author will introduce you to all the moves including detailed instructions on how to lift, breathe and engage.

Once you’ve got familiar with the technique, you will move on the Bulk phase for some heavy lifting within the next 6 weeks.

Finally, the third or the Beast phase is for final touch of your workout.

Note that program is rather intensive and regardless of the phase, you will need to work out six times a week. Body Beast is designed to push your body’s limits, with the special focus on specific muscle groups in addition to minimal rest.

Dynamic set training

Kalev defined the philosophy behind Body Beast as dynamic set training:

When you have the philosophy of super sets, drop sets, progressive sets merged with everything that is in the old-school training, you can recruit more muscle in a shorter period of time.

According to Sagi Kalev, precisely this dynamics will provide the most effective workout, by putting your muscles under tension for extended time.

The combination of lighter weights and higher repetitions followed by gradually introducing more weight with fewer repetitions is exactly the dynamics that will get you ripped.

Another great feature of Body Beast program is that everything is prepared for you. The reason it is working is because you have it all in one place:

  • workouts,
  • tracking,
  • supplements recommendation as well as
  • the meals plans.

And as Kalev said, with Body Beast there is no guessing, just the ultimate results.
