Right now Kayla Itsines is Instagram’s biggest fitness star. She is a 24-year-old personal trainer from Australia and she makes the world her gym. Ever since she was little, her parents planted the idea in her head that it was important for her to stay fit, and she has kept that idea in her head ever since.
There are two components to Kayla’s program, exercise and diet. You implement and follow them at the same time. The exercise component is Kayla’s Bikini Body Workout plan which spans out over 12 weeks. The guide tells you what to do for the three circuits you do each week. The circuit workouts are divided into weeks 1-3, 2-4, 5-7, 6-8, 9-11, and 10-12.
The equipment you need for the BBG are two benches/steps, a mat (not 100% necessary), two hand weights (10 lbs), a medicine ball (10 lbs), a jump rope, and a bosu ball. Though gyms provide all this equipment for you, this workout plan was designed to be done at home. You can buy all the equipment and easily do it in your apartment or house.
The three circuits consist of seven minute rounds and you repeat each one twice, so the workout ends up being only 28 minutes. This exercise outlet is great for people who cannot put aside an hour or more to go to the gym; it’s great for busy, stressed out college students and young adults with full time jobs and internships.
Make sure to read the ENTIRE Bikini Body Workout handbook from beginning to end to make sure you follow Kayla’s instructions down to every last word; do not assume you know what you’re doing for each workout.
The workouts do get harder as you advance to the next week, and that’s why people come out of the program stronger than ever. It is not only designed for people who want to shed weight quickly, it is also for skinny people who want to become stronger.
The second component of Kayla’s BBG is the diet portion. It contains key information on how to change the way you eat, so you can enjoy delicious, healthy meals and also speed up your metabolism to burn fat more quickly.
Kayla’s BBG comes with a full 14-day meal plan, complete with substitution ideas and recipes. There are both “regular” and vegetarian versions of her recipes and diet plan. She shows concern for people on all diets and people of all shapes an sizes; her plan has targeted a wide audience.
