Body Beast Equipment: What Do You Need?

So you’re probably here because you’ve been looking at possibly doing the newest program from Beachbody – Body Beast. And after starting this program recently myself, I have to say, great choice! I’m only just beginning this workout and it’s definitely a kick butt workout! But you may have seen some videos about the program and you might be wondering about the Body Beast equipment and gear, what do you need and what can you get away with NOT having right away.

Body Beast Equipment – What’s Used In The Workout Program?

You probably have seen the Body Beast video previewing the program (If not, check it out HERE) and you’ve probably noticed they have some new gear and Body Beast equipment that they’re using in the videos. Well you’re right. There are several pieces of equipment that are new to this workout program. But let’s cover the basics first.

If you’ve done P90X, P90X2 or Insanity: The Asylum before, you more than likely already have most of the Body Beast equipment that you’re going to need. For starters, you’re going to need a good set of dumbbells and a pull-up bar (or door attachment for resistance bands), and if you’ve done P90X2 then you probably have a stability ball which you’ll use here too.

But to have all of the necessary Body Beast equipment, you’re going to need to pick up a few new pieces of equipment.

Body Beast Equipment – What’s New?

To have everything you’ll need and all of the right gear and Body Beast equipment there are three new pieces of equipment that you’ll want to add to your collection – an ez-curl bar, some plated weights and an adjustable utility bench. Adding these three pieces will make your collection of Body Beast equipment complete. You won’t need anything else (probably ever again).

The Body Beast Equipment Costs Too Much!

Now I know what you’re thinking, “Wow! I have to really invest a lot of money with all of this new Body Beast equipment.” And well, you’re right! If you really want to Beast Up, it’s going to take some heavier weights and some additional equipment, that’s just the fact of the matter. But if you’re serious about getting Huge and gaining tons of Mass there are some other options without investing into all of this new Body Beast equipment.

Body Beast Equipment Options

Here are a few options that you can do if you do not want to invest into a bunch of new Body Beast equipment.

Option 1: Join A Gym

What?! Did you just hear me say join a gym? I thought this was an in-home workout program? Well it is! But let me explain. Just by simply going to a gym doesn’t get you huge. You still have to know what to do right? Otherwise you’ll be wondering around like an aimless soul. lol!

Body Beast is a 90 day program. You’re going to be pushing some heavy weight for 90 straight days. (well you do get a few rest days but you know what I mean 🙂 So if you don’t want to, or don’t have the funds to, invest into all of the Body Beast equipment, you could get a 3 month pass to your local gym for probably around $100. Compare that to investing into a whole bunch of new Body Beast equipment which could run you a couple hundred dollars and it might be a good option.

Option 2: Use Limited Equipment

Another option for those of you who can’t go out and invest into some of the new Body Beast equipment is to use what you’ve already got (as limited as that might be) or invest into only a few items. Here’s what I mean.

In the Body Beast workout videos, as with all Beachbody workout programs, there is a modifier. However, this modifier is not making the moves easier, he’s showing you how to do some of the moves if you have limited equipment. So for example, if you don’t have an adjustable utility bench, you can use a stability ball. If you don’t have an ez-curl bar and plated weights, you can use dumbbells. Make sense? So if you can’t go out and invest in all of the Body Beast equipment, you can get by with either using what you already have or only investing into a few, less expensive pieces.

Whichever way you decide to go, either investing into new Body Beast equipment or not, I want you to really go for it, do whatever it takes and Unleash the Beast inside of You!!

      If you’re doing Body Beast, you’ll only need it to incline and go flat. No need for a decline.

      Good luck!
