Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide Week 6 | Fitness Friday

Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide review





 

Due to personal life events I actually ended up repeating this week, due to only fitting in 2 workouts and 2 LISS workouts - I felt if I continued onto week 7 it would have hindered my progress so I decided to redo it. As I write this I am officially half way through the Bikini Body Guide! Mini milestone!

Monday - Abs and Arms

Before starting this workout I thought my core was actually reasonably strong, oh how wrong was I! This was hard, very hard! Trying to hold a plank for a whole minute! Think I managed to do it in 20 second holds before needed to let my belly fall. As if normal push ups weren't bad enough, drop push ups take it to a whole new level. Ached almost straight away after, my workout lasted 44 minutes and burnt 352 calories - ab workouts tend to burn less as your heart rate doesn't get so high.

Tuesday - LISS

Ached a lot across my chest and upper back after Mondays workout, so a walking session was much appreciated. A 40 min walk burnt 379 calories

Wednesday - Abs and cardio

I felt pretty poo today, but I wanted to work out so cracked on with it. I only ended up getting halfway through a workout and did 1 round of each circuits. I had to stop, I had no energy and felt quite ill.

Thursday - Rest Day

Still felt unwell on Thursday so ended up having a rest day.

Friday - LISS

As always I move Fridays workout to the weekend and complete a 37 minute walk for my LISS, burning 366 calories.

Saturday - LISS

Saturday was a busy one for me so only did a LISS walk today for 45 mins, burning 467 calories though! Maximum effort!

Sunday - Legs and Cardio AM - Swimming - LISS PM

Sunday I went a bit fitness crazy! I felt a bit downhearted about Wednesday's half workout so thought I'd make up for it! In the morning I did Fridays legs and cardio resistance workout - burning a whopping 576 calories! Go me! Then after lunch we went for a 30 minute swim burning approx 331 calories (I didn't wear my heart rate monitor so calculated this on myfitnesspal). Then in the evening we took the dogs on a 30 minute walk burning 296 calories. I've discovered not to swim on a leg day - as my knee actually starting hurting afterwards and I'm desperately trying to avoid any injury during the 12 weeks.

Overall I'm happy with my progress this week, I don't think there is a huge change between week 5 pictures and week 6, apart from maybe the legs are continuing to tone up. Any progress is still progress :). I hoped on the scales after week 6 and was shocked to find I'd lost a total of 7lbs so far!!!! Kayla's workout continues to impress me and I'm so glad I found it!

As always follow my journey on my instagram!

If you're ready to take the plunge and start the BBG guide, go for it! You won't regret it! Start here or if your a bit unsure, why not try a 7 day free trial?

  1. Your blog posts have been incredibly helpful! Thank you. I discovered your blog through instagram. I've been going back and forth on if I should buy Kayla's program. I have a gym membership and could continue to do my own workouts for free, but the results for Kayla's program are hard to ignore. Thinking I just need to bite the bullet and buy it.

    1. To be honest, buying this guide has been one of the best decisions I have made. I've got a gym membership and I tried to get fitter last year but failed. I'd go to the gym go on the bike and do some weight machines - I basically had no idea what to do, what to work out - I just made it up basically and did very similar things everytime I went. That's why I like this guide, I know how much cardio I need to do a week plus how many resistance sessions to fit in. Can't sing its praises enough! It makes me feel like gettting my ideal body is achievable - something 2 months ago I thought I had no hope with.
