Kayla Itsines BBG: Week 11

Kayla Itsines BBG: Week 11

I’ve been following Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide, aka ‘Kayla Itsines BBG’ for the past 11 weeks. Kayla’s guide consists of plyometric circuits three times a week, in addition to sessions of low intensity steady state (LISS) and high intensity interval training (HIIT).

I already did cardio and light weights 3-4 times a week at the gym, so at first I was a little skeptical as to how much the guide would help me. I was on the fence about it for a good couple of months, but after noticing the results that other young women had achieved on my Instagram feed, I took the plunge and bought it. I figured I didn’t really have anything to lose and I quite fancied mixing up my gym routine a little.

Rather than strictly following the guide, I incorporated Kayla’s resistance training into my pre-existing routine. This includes HIIT (20 minutes on the treadmill or epiliptical machine), TRX suspension training and yoga 4 times per week. I made the decision to cut back on my weight training so that I could notice any results from the BBG.

The BBG comes in an electronic PDF format, but you can also print it out if you prefer!

The Verdict?

I definitely recommend the BBG! The workouts get harder week-by-week, so although they never get easier, you get stronger. From the very beginning it has pushed me to my limits, despite the fact that I was already fit and active. The guide is also just as suitable for beginners who have a basic level of fitness. I do the workouts at my gym, but as it uses minimal equipment, it can be easily adapted for at home workouts too.

What I enjoy most about the BBG is how the circuits burn fat whilst strengthening my body. And although I still struggle somewhat with the tricep excercises, I have definitely gained upper body strength over the past few weeks, having finally accomplished the yoga asana Chatturangha (the yoga pushup)- hurrah!
