IdealFit 6 Week Challenge Weight Loss Results & Week One Workout Reviews!

As you probably have read, I have been following the IdealFit meal plans and have lost 15+ lbs! I also recently purchased their workout DVDs. The meal plans are based on macro timing around your workouts. The 15 day challenge meal plan and workouts are free! I started there, loved it so much I purchased their 6 Week Fit Body Challenge, and then the Sculpt Challenge.  The 6 Week Fit Body Challenge bundle now comes with the workout DVDs! The meal plans give you exactly the amounts of carbs, proteins, and fats based on when you workout. Their protein powder contains no carbs, no sugar, and is only 80 calories. Each day you get SIX meals!!! So you get to eat every few hours and you get unlimited veggies from a list. Tons of variety in eating, a food sub list, and unlimited veggies! Here is my affiliate link (click the challenges link in the toolbar) that save you 10% on your order (over $20) and I believe I also save 10% on my next order. Stay tuned on the blog for detailed reviews of all the workouts.

This DVD set contains 6 weeks of workouts on 6 DVDs. Each week has 6 workouts; each weeks workouts are on its own disc. The workouts are set up to be done in their chronological order each week and contain cardio, strength, and core workout! You will need to add on your own warm up & cool down, though the paper workouts detail a warm up & cool down routine. Each workout is right around 25 minutes. You will need dumbbells and a stability ball for these routines.

W1W1 Chest, Back, & Shoulders with Cardio Bursts: You do 2 circuits 2 times each. Exercises include pushups, pec fly, lat raise, overhead press, jacks, lat pulls, snow angel arm circles, upper back fly, and Mt. climbers.

W1W2 Lower Body & Cardio: You do 2 circuits 2 times each. Exercises include dips, plyo lunges, wall squats using the ball, deadlifts, fast floor touch leaps (suicides), butt kicks, jogging, ball hamstring pull in, single leg deadlift, calf raises, mogul hops, surrenders, and squat jacks. 

W1W3 Core with Cardio Bursts: You do 2 circuits 3 times each. Exercises include burpees, mt climbers, ball crunches, plank, walk out to plank, V twists, and plank shifts.

W1W4 Upper Body & CardioYou do 2 circuits 2 times each. Exercises include front press, wide row, in & out bi curls, tri dips, hi knees, butt kicks, jacks, ribcage pullover, pushups with your feet on the ball, and hammer curls.

W1W5 Lower Body & Cardio: You will perform 2 circuits 2 times each. Exercises include good mornings, reverse squats with heels on your weights, deadlifts, squat kicks, pop squats, wall sits, body weight squats, static lunges, and plyo lunges.

W1W6: Core with Cardio Bursts: You 2 circuits 3 times each. Exercises include burpees, mt climbers, plank hip twists, side planks, burpee to jacks, and ball tucks. 

These are intermediate workouts, they are only 25ish minutes and some of the lower body work is unweighted. You can adjust the intensity by adjusting your poundage, adding weights, or doing a modification that Lindsey offers-really making these workouts appropriate for all fitness levels. Lindsey coaches the workout and her partner performs the exercises. I love the interval format and that each workout contains cardio so you dont have to do a separate cardio day. Each workout is efficient and you accomplish a lot in only 25 minutes. The pace is moderate and allows for moderately heavy weights. They do give you 60-90 second recovery breaks between circuits that are great if you need them, if not, you can FF through them. I did NOT receive this dvd to review.
