Gettin’ a Booty Makeover With Leandro Carvalho’s Brazil Butt Lift

Brazil Butt Lift DVD 1

Basics: An introduction to all the exercises that Leandro does on all his discs. It is an informative intro on learning how to swing those hips and hit each muscle of your derrière.

Bum Bum: This 35-minute workout begins with a five-minute warm-up. For about half an hour, you’ll shake your Bum Bum (pronounced as “Boom Boom,” a Brazilian nickname for “butt”) while learning some new Portuguese words. This workout definitely brings the sweat…I burned 250 calories and hit a heart rate of 171—now tell me I wasn’t doing some bootay bumpin’?! Some of the moves include curtsy lunges, squats and many compounded movements—let’s just say there is a lot of lower-body work, I mean this is a Butt Lift, right?

Bum Bum Rapido: A 10-minute version of the Bum Bum workout. It is condensed and great if you find yourself making the excuse, “I don’t have time.” Well, now you do!

    I did this last year, and I thought it was a lot of fun! It was a bit on the more beginner-to-intermediate side, so I let friends who are just getting into working out try it. It DEFINITELY needs more cardio, but I was training for a half at the same time, so no problems for me!

    I love Brazil Butt Lift. If you actually follow the guide and complete 60 days of the program you will notice a difference….as long as your nutrition is good! I also felt it was more beginner-to-intermediate, but overall it is a good workout.

  3. I’m on week 3 of BBL and love it. My upper thighs and Bum Bum are sore and I can barely squat to sit down. In regards to the food guide – the 6 day slim down is a kick start and only to be used for 6 days, no more. If you wanted you can do this slim down once a quarter but no more often. The fat burning food guide is to use the rest of the time.

    I really love the BeachBody workouts (www.beachbody.co.uk
    ). Finally a fitness programme I manage to stick to. I don’t need to go anywhere and can do my workout at home whenever it is convenient for me. A really great discovery for me 🙂
