Chalean Extreme and Brazil Butt Lift Hybrid: Week 1 and PiYo Instructor Training

After much debate among my own thoughts, I chose to reach the rest of my health and fitness goals using a HYBRID! What's a hybrid you ask? Great question, it's when you use two different programs (Chalean Extreme and Brazil Butt Lift in my case) and mush them together to form a work-out schedule. I love this because it gives me two different instructors, tons of different variety, and the programs are working on different things!

Here is what the first week's schedule looked like:
Week 1:
Day 1: CE Burn Circuit 1
Day 2: BBL Cardio Axe
Day 3: CE Burn Circuit 2
Day 4: BBL Sculpt
Day 5: CE Burn Circuit 3
Day 6: BBL Cardio Axe, BBL Tummy Tuck
Day 7: Rest
As much as I would love to tell you that these were super easy workouts and I did them with no problem, that is not the case. Brazil Butt Lift has much more bite than it's bark...what I am saying is it looks easy but it is not by any means, EASY. It was more challenging at times than Chalean, and that is saying A LOT. I had a difficult time getting out of bed and getting motivated towards the end of the week but I did it and got it done. My eating on the other hand was complete garbage. Chalk it up and move on to this week, already off to a better start (actually stuck to an entire day's meal plan). See it's true, everyone has slip ups..mine just apparently lasted a really long time!

And then Sunday was my favorite because it was PiYo instructor training day! Most of you know I am a certified Insanity instructor and I wanted to gain another secondary certification to open myself up to some options for teaching! I loved this class, it is definitely more challenging from a teaching standpoint than Insanity, but so worth it. I can not WAIT to get this going. What else did I learn? PiYo is no joke! I am so sore today, but I love it. And in the hard to target areas (saddle bags, obliques, love know the usual). 

I also have some REALLY good news! This program, PiYo, is going to be released this summer as an at home workout too! This is the ultimate workout for all fitness levels (I know you've heard that one before, but just hear me out), it is low impact, high calorie burning, flexibility/strength/endurance training all rolled into one pretty pink package. Seriously, get on my email list to be the first to know when this comes out, contact me, to make sure you're on it and in the know. Our last program (21 day fix) sold out like hot cakes and is still flying off the shelf, so you are not going to want to miss a beat when it comes to this! If you don't like yoga or pilates...GOOD, because this isn't either of those, it's PiYo:) 

That's the update, talk to you all soon! As always, contact me with any questions or if you're interested in starting your health and wellness journey!


  1. the surgeon will inject the fat from other parts of your body and inject them into your butt region to make it look bigger.

  2. Has anyone had a brazillian butt lift surgery in India? Let me know that what is cost for this procedure and recovery time also.

  3. Cardio is a Waste of Time for Fat Loss

    While the mainstream fitness media still insists that aerobic
    exercise is a great way to lose weight, Turbulence Training users
    know that interval training is the better way to burn body fat.

    Still not convinced?

    A recent study published by the North American Association for the
    Study of Obesity, subjects aged 40 to 75 were instructed to do 60
    minutes of aerobic exercise per day for 6 days per week for an
    entire year.

    Given the amount of exercise, you'd expect weight losses of 20, 30
    pounds, or more, right?

    Well, the surprise findings showed the average fat loss for female
    subjects was only 4 pounds for the entire year, while men lost 6.6
    pounds of fat over the year. That's over 300 hours of aerobic
    exercise just to lose a measly 6 pounds of blubber. Not time well
    spent, in my opinion.

    So what's the better way? Stick with Turbulence Training, using
    interval training and strength training to get better bodysculpting
    results. With intervals, you'll achieve more fat burning results in
    less workout time.

    The next time you are out exercising, perform a session of interval
    training. If you are walking or running outside, find an incline
    that can challenge you for 60 seconds, then walk down for 60-120
    seconds, and repeat up to 6 times.

    If you walk or run on a treadmill, adjust the incline or speed to
    safely increase the challenge for 60 seconds, then return to the
    normal pace for 60-120 seconds, and repeat up to 6 times.

    You can also use a rowing machine, bicycle or stationary bike, or
    even an elliptical machine to do intervals.

    But whatever you do, stay away from boring, ineffective cardio
    exercise workouts and stick with Turbulence Training for your fat
    burning program.

    "I'm 25 and was seriously overweight at the start of this year. I've
    been doing the TT for Fat Loss Workouts and after 5 months of
    training. I've lost nearly 28lbs. I want to take this opportunity
    to thank Craig for making your knowledge so accessible and your
    articles and blogs that not only make us think about our
    lifestyles, but encourage us to change them for better health."

    "Turbulence Training makes so much sense and I really enjoy the
    different workouts so never get bored. From an aussie that was
    looking for something other than just another weight workout
    with the same old moves this has been a real eye opener for me and
    I have been telling my friends just how great the TT method is."
