As a thank you, I’m opening a pre-order opportunity with exclusive savings on the 13-week My Best Body – Home Training Program starting Sept. 27.

STARTING SEPT. 27, YOU’LL:

  1. Save $10 and secure your copy of the My Best Body – Home Training Program for $89.99 USD

UPDATE: You will be charged when you pre-order.


WHAT’S INCLUDED*?

Those who have purchased the My Best Body Training Program (gym) know the great depth of information and resources I pack into my guides – these lists barely skim the surface.

I put a ton of thought into my pricing. My goal is to share my workouts and personal training knowledge with as many people as possible, and in a way that allows you to keep what you purchase for future reference (i.e. eBook PDF). 

Think about this:

  • The average cost of a personal training session = $50/session
  • The average gym membership = $40/month
  • The average cost of a fitness app subscription = $20/month

For a one-time payment of $89.99 USD (until Oct. 30), you receive lifetime access to:

MY BEST BODY – HOME TRAINING PROGRAM (PDF)

  • 13 weeks of fun, safe and effective workouts that deliver proven results
  • Instructional photos demonstrating each exercise
  • Helpful overviews of each of the three program phases (Stabilization & Base Training, Strength Training, and Power Training) to help you get the most out of every workout
  • Weekly #mybrandofbeautiful pep talks from me – because fitness is about being strong on the inside, too!
  • Tips and tricks to improve your form and avoid injury
  • Weekly workout calendars to help you plan ahead and stay on track
  • Beginner and advanced options for many exercises/workouts – making this the perfect program for you, no matter where you’re starting!

MY BEST BODY – HOME RESOURCE GUIDE (BONUS PDF)

  • Full-Body Rehabilitation Sequence to follow on rest day and to use throughout the week as you wish as well as an overview on the benefits of stretching and foam rolling 
  • MBB Athlete Personal Record worksheet to help you keep track of your assessments and challenges
  • Warm-up guidance, including a list of dynamic stretches to work into your warm-up routine 
  • A chapter dedicated to form for common exercises like push-ups, hip hinges and bracing/hollow body
  • Heart rate & heart rate monitoring information, as well as what to expect when using a fitness tracker during My Best Body – Home 
  • Term glossary to help you understand common exercise terminology 
  • Exercise library providing step-by-step text instructions for each exercise in the program 

So, you get the picture … this is a GREAT deal. 

*Note that these are subject to change; HOWEVER, NOTHING LISTED ABOVE WILL BE CUT! I might just decide to add more. 🙂 


REQUIRED EQUIPMENT 

You will need a small amount of equipment to complete My Best Body – Home. In many cases, the weight options are interchangeable (e.g. You can do a skullcrusher with a barbell or dumbbells). 

When an exercise is described as “weighted,” feel free to choose whichever option you’d like. If a word in an exercise name is in parentheses, like “(banded),” it is optional. 

  • Dumbbells*: I recommend having a few sets to choose from, because the weight you lift varies from exercise to exercise.
  • Exercise mat
  • Exercise/stability ball: You should be able to sit on the ball with feet flat on the floor and knees comfortably making 90-degree angles.
  • Mini resistance bands: At least two – one with light resistance and one with heavy resistance.
  • Sturdy box, workout bench or jump box
  • Barbell*: I highly recommend investing in an adjustable barbell. In many cases, you can substitute dumbbells for a barbell, but there are some instances in which a barbell will be preferable. 
  • Kettlebell*
  • Jump rope
  • Interval timer: I use the free GymBoss interval timer app. 

*”Weighted” alternative

MBB Leg Day Training Focus Areas

My #MBBathlete friends know that I place a huge emphasis on mind-muscle connection in the program. It’s super easy to simply go through the motions of an exercise without fully engaging the correct muscles. It was important to me to set you up for success during My Best Body and beyond by knowing how to lift weights with MBB – not just giving you a list of exercises to do.

For many of us, our legs take the longest to change. This can be due to a number of factors – genetics, metabolism, calories and macros consumed, loads, frequency of training, etc. – but it can also be because the right muscles are not being engaged at the right moment or for the right amount of time.


MBB Leg Day Training Focus Areas: (and really, these apply to all muscle groups!):

FORM: A good set is not one you rush through in pain (because the weight is too heavy). It is not one you fly through because it’s too easy, either. Let’s take the weight (load) out of the equation for a minute. Using proper form is key in engaging the right muscles. I know, I know – you hear this all the time. But let’s really think about it for a minute. Educate yourself on the targeted muscles for each exercise. I provide extensive written directions in the My Best Body Resource Guide, which is meant to supplement the photos in the program. Knowing what you are working will make you a smarter athlete and will help you engage the right muscles. As you do the exercise, pay close attention to those muscles. If you can’t feel them contracting and lengthening, there is a good chance those muscles are underactive and other (overactive) muscles are compensating. When this happens, drop your weights! Load is important, but form is key in lifting safely and effectively.

SQUEEZE: Squeeze those muscles! It’s not “cute” to squeeze your butt, but doing so will earn you results (and no one is watching you, anyway!). On squats and deadlifts, squeeze your glutes hard at the top of the exercise. It takes a mindful approach to engage your muscles correctly. Do not simply go through the motions. Make those muscles work! 

TEMPO: I go into great detail on tempo in MBB (Note: If you bought the program and skipped ahead to the workouts, bypassing the intro sections, I highly encourage you to go back and read!). I place a lot of emphasis on eccentric lifting in MBB and believe that time under tension is key in muscle growth and strength progress. Do. Not. Rush. Take your time. Think about the muscles contracting and lengthening. Make that mind-muscle connection. Again – when you have it right, you will know!

LOAD: Okay – let’s add the weight back into the equation. I will always encourage you to go heavy, but NOT at the expense of good form. Heavy weights are going to stimulate growth and change. This might require you to step outside of your comfort zone. Maybe you will try an Olympic barbell for squats instead of the lighter curling bar you’ve always used. GOOD! Get out there. Test your limits. You want to be able to complete a full set with good form, with the last few reps being somewhat difficult (but manageable). The best way to determine this weight is to simply try a set. The further you get into your lifting journey, the better understanding you will have of your abilities. Lift safely, but don’t go easy on yourself. Continue to test your limits in a smart manner.  

FREQUENCY: If your legs are resistant to change, work them more frequently. There are two leg days in many MBB weeks. Ensure you give your muscles enough rest time in between to allow for recovery and growth. 

STRETCHING AND FOAM ROLLING (SMR): We could all be better at rehabilitation of our muscles. Stretching your legs will help you achieve that definition you’re after by lengthening your muscles. Aim to stretch and foam roll regularly after your leg sessions (with a proper warm-up in advance). I provide suggested warm-ups in My Best Body for every workout!

  • For those who made purchases during the #MBBcrash, received download errors and cannot access your purchases, I am working feverishly on your orders and will get them in your hands soon! Thank you so much for your patience!! You must notify me if you had this issue by doing the following:

The last 24 hours have been a complete whirlwind for me. Thank you to all who sent me supportive comments and messages as I worked through a very frustrating website crash. I am a team of one, and I had many tough moments yesterday, but you helped me power through and stay positive. I can’t express how much your patience and understanding means to me!

I know I would not have been able to make it this far without you all cheering me on this last year as I developed this program. Thank you to all who have supported me and rooted me on this year! I love you all!
