Remember, if you haven’t signed up already, make sure you’re not missing out. You won’t find these workouts anywhere else. Here’s a quick preview of the workouts:
BOD Exclusive: 8×8
If you’re looking for a total-body workout you can do in 25 minutes, congrats, you just found it. New super trainer Joel Freeman will take you through his one-on-one Beachbody On Demand workout, 8×8, in 25 minutes tops. The workout consists of eight strength exercises, like standing bicep curls with reverse grip overhead press, performed in three sets of eight, hence the name 8×8. But here’s the kicker: These are supersets, so you do eight reps, then another eight reps. And did we mention you use heavier weights? This higher level of resistance, coupled with muscle-crunching supersets, leads to a full-body power workout that increases your strength, speed, and range of motion in a minimal amount of time. And only minimal equipment is required; a barbell and weighted plates or dumbbells are all that’s needed. As a strength-training workout, 8×8 is aimed at the intermediate or advanced level crowd. So if this sounds like you and you’re ready to feel the burn, gear up for 8×8 and let Joel show you how it’s done.
BOD Exclusive: Half & Half
How does a workout that stretches your endurance and flexibility to the limits in just 40 minutes sound? If you answered, “Invigorating!” or “Sign me up!” then Half & Half is definitely your cup of tea. This one-on-one Beachbody On Demand workout led by new super trainer Jericho McMatthews is one full 40-minute workout, halved in two parts to complement each other, or to do separately, if you wish. Each part is 20 minutes. So if you’ve only got 20 minutes, you can jump into either half and still get a full workout. The first half is high-intensity, circuit-style cardiovascular training designed to speed up your metabolism and pump up your endurance. It consists of four distinct moves performed at short, intense bursts in rounds of three. According to Jericho, the moves are simple, but challenging (read: she keeps you moving). The second half of the workout is 20 minutes of flow-style yoga that focuses on creating stability, strength, and elasticity. All the poses featured in Half & Half, such as the Starfish Pose (stand on one leg, two arms up, one leg out to the side, stretching… feel it yet?), are designed to maximize stability and strength in your core, increase your balance, and promote greater flexibility. With Half & Half, you don’t need any equipment; a yoga mat is optional. And you can modify any of the exercises if needed, so the workout is perfect for all levels: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Half & Half will definitely leave you supercharged. Even after 40 minutes, you just might feel like doing it all over again.
Both Joel and Jericho will also be leading challenge groups for Beachbody On Demand members, so check out their Facebook pages for details. You can connect with Joel here and Jericho here on Facebook.
