Body Beast is one of the first all-encompassing workout, performance diet, and supplement systems, created to build a large, muscular physique as quickly as possible. When used properly, it’s capable of adding ten pounds of lean muscle in 90 days.
Body Beast is built on the concept of Dynamic Set Training, a specific sequence of sets and reps which maximizes the muscle’s time under tension with the goal of exhausting the muscle and “recruiting” more muscle fiber. Dynamic Set Training is also designed to help enhance your body’s own testosterone production. Testosterone is the primary hormone responsible for developing muscle mass, so the more testosterone the body makes, the faster it grows.

Reviews of Body Beast DVD Workout – Base Kit
Body Beast DVD Workout – Base Kit Review 1: After a year of doing the program…
I’ve read many reviews of body beast and most review the product after just a few days or weeks. All reviews also focus on the weight lifting aspect. I’ve been following the program for over a year now, and my review will focus on the nutrition aspect and results overall long term.
I am 44, female and probably in the best shape of my life. I do not work for BeachBody. I just believe that working out should be a part of my everyday routine. As we age, male or female, we will lose muscle mass. So I lift weights as a way to combat this loss and perhaps build muscle. It is not easy to build muscle but if you don’t eat right it’s even harder.
I started my BeachBody journey last year, in Jan ’16. I purchased the 21 day fix. I lost 13 lbs, going from 158 to 145. I am 5’9″. I did that by following the program 3 times (9 weeks total), religiously following both the diet and the exercise routine. The meal plan was difficult to follow, especially the 2nd week. I wanted to eat like nobody’s business, and I wished the stupid colored boxed were 8 times bigger. But I got used to it.
So when I started the Beast, I had stabilized at 145. My last three weeks of 21 day fix brought no change in weight. So I changed my plan to build muscle and tone up a little bit with the Beast. The best part of the transition from 21 day fix to Beast was that I actually could eat again.
The book lays out a ton of choices for each food group category and you figure out how much you should eat based on your current weight. Wow. I went from 2 lousy carbs a day to 5. I was in heaven. The plan is actually something that I can follow regularly and not feel starved. Except the last rotation, the cutting part. During this last four weeks, you eat almost the same number of calories but the majority will come from protein.
That eating part of the program is very difficult and the only part that I can say have I failed every time. Not one single review has discussed how difficult this part is, so I’m letting you know that this is the BEAR of the program. The rationale is that if you’re still lifting weights, the body will metabolize the fat in recognition that it needs the muscle that you keep asking it to use. How many people do you know lift weights and diet at the same time and try to build muscle that way? How is your body supposed to do that?
Anyways, the first eight weeks you can eat and the body will build muscle because you are working out with weights–your’e asking your body to build muscle. And you’re eating enough in a balanced way to accomplish this. But your body might also store fat, because your body can’t just selectively make muscle. So don’t worry about that, just follow the eating plan to a “T” and you will build muscle during this time. It’s the last four weeks where you will shed that fat. And that last four weeks is where you will see results.
And that last four weeks will be the bummer when you’re going out to dinner and you can’t eat the breadsticks or even the croutons on your stupid salad with chicken. But that’s the sacrifice you’re supposed to make because you are now in your cutting phase and that’s just how it goes. And this is the part I have the hardest time following.
If you want a basic program that guides you on how to build muscle, then buy this program. Over the year I have developed more muscle and I am definitely stronger. I lift heavier weights then when I started (I write it down), and I get compliments from time to time on my physique. So that’s about all I can say about results.
I like the program because I need someone to just tell me what to do. In the time I could spend driving to the gym and back, I’ve accomplished my workout in my own home. And I love Sagi’s sense of humor and I think he’s great. If you read reviews that say the program isn’t challenging enough, then they are not lifting heavy enough.
That’s not rocket science, that’s just fact. Follow what he says in the DVD, follow the schedule and most importantly follow the eating plan. Sagi says it’s all about what you eat, and I couldn’t agree more. I am currently trying that cutting phase (again), and I am actually doing it. Fingers crossed.
Body Beast DVD Workout – Base Kit Review 2: Althought this program changed my life, I think you need to do at least 3 cycles of this workout to get extreme results.
This is a great program, but, I don’t think a single 90 day cycle will deliver extreme results. If you follow the eating plan and take all of the supplements and work out 6 days a week- it promises amazing results. I do 4 to 5 workouts a week and do take supplements after. I haven’t done the eating plan- but who really does?
All of the guys on the DVDs have spent at least 10 years getting their bodies to look the way they do. There is absolutely no way a non-seasoned body builder or even a seasoned body builder will look that good in 90 days unless they are a professional. So get that image out of your head. You’re not going to look like Sagi after 90 days.
I don’t know if most people can do 6 days a week and give maximum effort. The program is really challenging when you do it right, so you would probably burn out after a month of 6 days a week.
What you can expect after 90 days: You will be stronger, more solid and better conditioned. Your cardio will improve because you’re flying through the workouts with very little rest. You’re going to have to learn proper form on your own because the system doesn’t teach it to you. I think after the first cycle you’ll figure out the moves and develop good form.
My gf said she didn’t see any difference in the way I looked after 90 days and I was pretty discouraged. She said I was pretty obsessed with working out, and I looked the same. I’m in a fitness group with my friends and we post before and after pics. When I flexed and compared the two pics- My arms were much bigger and cut, my gut was a lot smaller, love handles got smaller, shoulders were a lot bigger and my legs were definitely bigger.
Real results happen in the 2nd and 3rd cycle- in my experience. I’m almost done with cycle 2 and I’m finally seeing much more definition. Fitness is for life so you’re going to have to keep on working out to get and stay in shape. I’m probably going to do a round of p90x after this cycle and then go for cycle 3.
I say this program changed my life and I mean it. I lost about 120 lbs in 2 years by Jan 2015 mostly due to ADHD meds. I am a 6’3″ male and I was over 360 lbs., but, I lifted weights most of my life. I was solid but, no one is healthy at 300+ lbs. My meds decimated my appetite and the weight just fell off. So I looked great but I was so unbelievably weak. I went from deadlifting 400 lbs. to not being able to walk up a flight of stairs without extreme difficulty. I was scared that there was something wrong but my doc told me that I “deconditioned,” basically my muscles were very weak.
The most embarrassing thing that happened was at work one day. I told people that I couldn’t really do long walks and stuff because I had knee problems. I was with a colleague and we had to walk 5 Philadelphia city blocks to a meeting at a restaurant. I was in a suit and my legs started to get tired 3 blocks into the walk.
We crossed the street and I stepped into a divot and lost my balance. I was on my hands and knees in the street and literally could not get up. I had to crawl to the sidewalk. People tried to help me and offered to call an ambulance. I took a cab back to the office after a couple minutes rest and then went home for the day. I was a 33 year old guy and couldn’t get up after I fell.
A few months went by and I moved to new apartment in Delaware and drive to work so I don’t have to walk those terrifying city blocks anymore. I already had a weight set and started to lift a little bit. I couldn’t go to the gym for fear of people laughing at me. I went a couple of times in the past, but I literally had to lay down for 5 or 6 mins just to be able to walk to my car and drive home on shaky legs. I wanted to get stronger and saw the Body Beast program on TV. I figured I could do it in my home and fail without embarrassment.
The first couple of weeks were literally hell. I was so weak that I couldn’t make it through most of the dvds. But, I kept at it, bought supplements, and kept going. BCAAs, Whey protein, and Casein Protein go into my post workout drink. After the first month, I felt a lot stronger and did not feel like I was constantly in fear of falling and not being able to get up. I started the program for real after a month of half effort and everything changed for me.
I realized that I couldn’t get up after a fall because my core and legs were weak and fatigued quickly. After less than a month of doing the program, I was squatting over 280 lbs and deadlifting the same. So in about 60 days I went from basically crawling up a flight of stairs to squatting 280 lbs. I couldn’t curl 20 lbs for more than 10 reps before the program, now my top set curl is 50 lbs., after a pyramid of 20, 40 and 50 lbs.
I don’t look like Sagi, and that’s fine. I’m almost done with cycle 2 of the program and I have my life back. I’m almost as strong as I was 120 lbs heavier. My muscles are harder than they have ever been at any time in my life. I can do weighted burpees and pull ups. I run up stairs now. This is a rehabilitation program as much as it is a fitness program.
Most people won’t start where I was- basically relearning to walk. I’m actually pretty embarrassed of having been so weak- I don’t tell many people about it. This program took me from deconditioned to legit strong in four months. I’m never going to stop working out and will probably do this program 20 or 30 times instead of going to the gym. It will take years to look like Sagi, and I’m perfectly ok with that. I’m really looking forward to my results after 1 year of Body Beast with P90X thrown in for good measure.
I don’t know if this review will help. I wrote it to encourage people who might be recovering from an injury or have limited mobility- to encourage them to not be afraid of this program. You can start where you are, no-one can judge you in your own home. You will get stronger, that is literally inevitable. The only bad thing is that you need A LOT of equipment. For me- the investment has resulted in a whole new life. You will need years to look like Sagi, but, only 90 days to be a stronger better you.
Body Beast DVD Workout – Base Kit Review 3: Who knew I’d like lifting weights?
Love this workout and lifting weights. I feel fitter and stronger than I ever have (am 40+). Ladies, don’t be afraid that you’ll bulk up- you won’t. If you want a no-nonsense way to get fit, this is it. Each workout is 30 to 40 minutes- long enough to be engaged, but not too long so as to burn you out.
I’m not coordinated enough to do the dance-type, bouncy workouts, so this one spoke to me and I really like it. I bought a basic bench, an EZ bar, and some plates and was good to go as I already had a few sets of dumbbells. While you can just use dumbbells and an exercise ball for all the workouts, I think I’m getting more out of them by using the recommended equipment.
