IdealFit 6 Week Challenge Week Four Tabata Week ~ Workout Reviews & Weight Loss Results!

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. 

IdealFit 6 Week Fit Body Challenge: Week 4 ~ Tabata Week
Lindsey Matthews

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. Week 4 is Tabata week so each workout includes a 2 min 20 seconds on 10 seconds off Tabata blast.

W4W1 Back, Chest with Cardio Bursts: This is mainly a back routine and includes a little chest work along with cardio bursts. You do 2 circuits 2 times each. You begin this workout with a Tabata row routine. Exercises include 1 arm row, quick fire rows, extended position plank (targeting the upper back & core), burpee- Mt climber- pushup- hi knees- jacks, and lat push backs. 

W4W2 Chest, Shoulders, & Core with Cardio Bursts: You do 2 circuits 2 times each, starting with your 2 min Tabata pushups. Exercises include reverse fly, medial delt raise, front raise, elevator plank - plank jacks - jacks, pushup to side plank, and tricep pushups.

W4W3 Lower Body & Cardio: You do 2 circuits 3 times each. Exercises include stationary lunges, lunge hops, curtsy lunges, sumo hold, plyo lunges, rear raises laying over the ball, ball bridge, ball ham pull ins, and concludes with 2 minutes of 20/10 pop squats.

W4W4 Back, Bi's, & Core: You do 2 circuits 2 times each. This routine does not have any cardio exercises. Exercises include 45* rows, underhand 21 rows, ball incline curls, dumbbell pass crunches, tabata renegade row walk outs, inverted cable pull, bi 21's + 7 extra reps, weighted sit-ups, & supine flutter kicks.

W4W5 Ches, Tri's & Shoulders & Tabata Cardio. You will perform 2 circuits 2 times each, the only cardio in this one is two sets of mt climber tabatas. Exercises include bench press, pec fly, overhead press var, pushups dumbbell transfer, overhead tri extension, and Y & lat raise.

W4W6: Lower Body & Cardio: You 2 circuits 3 times each. This is the most cardio intensive & most challenging of the set I have done so far. 
You begin this workout with a plyo lunge Tabata set. Exercises include balance runners lunge to standing & single leg burpees, deadlift & burpees, jump squats, booty pop ups with your heels elevated, pop squats, surrenders, and squat holds. 

This weeks routines are higher intermediate workouts, though the poundage you use will determine how challenging your workouts are. The upper body workouts are more focused on fewer muscle groups so you are hitting them a little harder this week and you get a nice little Tabata burner in each one. There are definitely a few more advanced exercises included this week. In under 30 minutes you will get your muscles firing and your heart pumping. 
The pace is moderate and allows for moderately heavy weights. I did NOT receive this dvd to review.
