I decided to try Beach Body’s 80 Day Obsession and review it here after hearing so many great things. A couple of notes…..I am not a Beach Body Coach so this will be an honest review. as I have no stake in the game. I will suspend other workouts including my beloved Peloton Cycle for 80 days.
Equipment required: Weights, Mat, Resistance Loops, Strength Slides, Foam Roller
Below is a video clip from my workout today title AAA. It stands for Arms, Abs and you guessed it AS*. Day 1 was Total Body Core, Day 2 was Booty, Day 3 was Cardio Core. (my canine workout buddies make an appearance. This is real life peeps!)
My Observations so far are:
- I am a cardio beast. (Thank you Peloton)
- Plyometrics are my Kryptonite. (It has been too long)
- My upper body is very week. (Too much Peloton, not enough Strength Training)
- Strength Slides could have been used effectively as weapons of torture in medieval times.
The workouts are about 1 hour in length and there are small rest breaks while Autumn demos the next exercise. They are filmed in real time and although the format is the same for the specific workouts each is uniques. She challenges you as the weeks progress. I like her style. She is encouraging and real. There are modifiers but I would call this an intermediate to hard workout. It is very focused on the core which I need. I will update you again on day 8 as my arms are so sore holding them on the keyboard is a challenge. Wish me luck!
