Comprehensive Overview and Review of the Brazil Butt Lift Workout

Comprehensive overview and review of Brazil Butt Lift workout programThe One-Stop Overview and Review of the Brazil Butt Lift Workout from Beachbody

I’ve been meaning to write this Brazil Butt Lift workout review for a long time, but things just kept getting in the way. That’s what happens when you have three school aged children and a business with many clients who need my attention and assistance. Things can really get away from you. 🙂

There’s actually no excuse for waiting this long, because I’ve completed this workout program for over a year now. I love it and still incorporate it into my workout schedule at least once a week, even though I have moved onto other workout programs such as Body Beast and P90X3 (one of the joys of being a Beachbody coach).

I have over a dozen workout programs in my collection, but whenever I’m in the mood for a fun, entertaining, and challenging routine, I find myself reaching for the BBL DVDs. This should give you an idea of how much I enjoy this program because I haven’t gotten bored with it even after a full year. Everyone has their “soul workout”—something that really resonates with them on a personal level and that they love to do and return to consistently. Brazil Butt Lift is mine. 🙂

This article is not intended to be an in-depth review of each of the workouts in BBL. I will have to wait another time to do that (they’re actually very hard to describe). Instead, my goal is to describe in as much detail as possible what you can expect when you order the program, including the results which are 100% attainable.

Program Overview

First of all, let’s be very clear that I’m talking about a DVD workout program that you can do from the comfort of your home. I understand that it’s possible some of my readers stumbled onto this page when they were searching for the Brazil Butt Lift surgical procedure (Google keeps on mixing up the two).

I’m not a butt surgeon and I don’t play one on TV. LOL.

To those readers who were thinking of butt lift surgery—would you consider giving this workout program a chance before you do something so drastic with your body? I know we all want to look good, but allow me to show you that it’s possible to get amazing results the all natural way without having to subject your body to surgery. Watch the video below and scroll down to the results section below to see the awesome results real women are having with Brazil Butt Lift.

Brazil Butt Lift is the creation of Leandro Carvalho, who is a personal trainer from Rio de Janeiro. I’ve met Leandro and he is one of the sweetest people you can possible know. He really cares about helping people get the best results. He’s exactly the same in person as in his videos–full of life and personality. He’s also got a wild fashion sense. He was walking around the Vegas MGM in orange shorts and matching flip-flops.

Leandro’s back story is another inspirational rages-to-riches tale. One day he just decided to pick up from Rio and move to New York City to pursue his dreams of being a personal trainer. He had no support network, no friends, no money. He didn’t even speak English! All he had was just a wild dream of making it big, and a great idea on how to train the butt muscles.

Long story short, Leandro was able to open up an exercise studio within a year of coming to America. This is where he developed his signature “triangle” training techniques to sculpt the bodies and booties of top supermodels in New York. He helped his model clients prepare for lingerie photo shoots or runway shows where they would have to wear revealing clothing. His classes were wildly successful and pretty soon Leandro became known as the “Brazilian Butt master.”

Beachbody, the producers of P90X and Insanity, two of the most successful home workout programs of all time, contacted Leandro to see if he would put his workout system into DVD format so that women everywhere can sculpt and shape their booties the same way Leandro’s clients do. Lucky for his, he agreed and the rest is history. Now, he’s considered an elite celebrity trainer.

What Is Brazil Butt Lift Like?

It’s a bit hard describe BBL in a way that does it justice, but Leandro’s workout system uses a mix of cardio, dance moves, and his unique training method to work your rear end from three different angles. The goal is to shape your bootie muscles into the famously round Brazilian bum bum (that’s Brazilian for booty!).

If you’ve ever tried on a Brazilian bikini, you know they take their bum bums very seriously.

Also, the program will lift your butt so that it will look good from every angle, and firm your waist and thighs by melting away fat from the saddlebags.

It’s name may be slightly ridiculous, but the results are nothing to laugh at. The heart of Brazil Butt Lift is Leandro’s well established Triangle Training technique. That is, the program works the three major muscles of the buttocks (gluteus)—the maximus, medius, and minimus. See the video below.

Before I did this program, I didn’t realize the butt was so complicated. 🙂 I thought it was just a big muscle, but it’s actually comprised of three which move in different directions. That is why one exercise will not cut it if you want the perfect bootie.

In order to contour and shape the perfect rear end, you must work all the muscles at the same time. “It’s all about the angles,” as Leandro is known to say. His Triangle Training method works out the three gluteus muscles from multiple angles, including the hamstrings and the parts that are connected to the pelvic bone.

This is the reason why BBL is so effective. It’s the only workout of its kind that focuses exclusively on this one area of the body.

You also need to shed the fat because it won’t do any good to shape and tone the butt muscles if there is a layer of fat which covers them up. That’s why Brazil Butt Lift also has a serious cardio component (as well as a nutrition guide) to help you burn off the excess fat so you can show off your shapely butt muscles. LOL.

This unique two-step method is what produces the lifting effect and sexy curves that a woman wants. Brazil Butt lift is different than other workout programs because it won’t add bulk to your thighs because you won’t be just doing endless squats and lunges.

Who Can Benefit from this Workout Program?

Personally, I think anyone can benefit from doing Brazil Butt Lift. Women appreciate a nice tush as much as men, so there is no reason why guys shouldn’t do the program. Unfortunately, Beachbody has pretty much marketed this workout program exclusively to women, so not a lot men have ordered it. That’s too bad, because I know a few guys who could use a rounder butt. LOL.

Brazil Butt Lift is for anyone who thinks their butt, hips, and thighs are their problem areas and would like to reshape their rear view. If you want to tone your butt/hips/thigh area and tighten and shape your gluteal muscles with energetic and fun cardio to help you burn fat and slim down, this is the workout for you.

Maybe you have completed another workout program and now you want to fine tune or target a specific area such as your booty. Train with Leandro and you can maintain your strength and cardio fitness while also lifting your rear end, and firming your butt, hips, and thighs.

Of course, anyone who enjoys a fun, dance-based workout and likes to shake their booty will also love Brazil Butt Lift. The best thing is that you can do it in the privacy of your home and not worry about paying for expensive gym memberships. I’m talking to you Zumba fans!

Recommended Equipment

Beachbody specializes in home workout programs. Brazil Butt Lift is no exception. It is designed to produce results with as little equipment as possible. Having said that, you can maximize your results by using certain fitness equipment that you can purchase from any sports store or order directly from Beachbody. I use the term “equipment” loosely because what I’m talking about are just elastic bands and ankle weights. No bulky gear necessary. Not even a dumbbell.

You can do the workouts with zero equipment, but of course it’s a good idea to increase the intensity level to speed up the results as you get progressively stronger.

Don’t forget you’ll need a TV with DVD player as well as a 6’x6′ space where you can do your workouts. A living room works great for me. I know some people are skeptical that it’s possible to achieve great results at home without fancy equipment or a trainer, but I know for a fact that it’s 100% doable because I’m the typical Beachbody success story. Check out my photo below. At 42 years old, I’m in better shape than when I was a teenager.

Parting Thoughts

In case it’s not obvious by now, I LOVE Brazil Butt Lift. I can’t rave about it enough. It is so fun and upbeat that I never feel like I’m working out. I have a great time dancing and shaking my booty with Leandro for 30-45 minutes, and when it’s over, I’m drenched in hard earned sweat.

The way Leandro sets up the workouts makes you believe that you’re in a dance class with Leandro as your personal instructor rather than exercising at home. I’ve done many of Beachbody’s workout programs and I can say that Brazil Butt Lift is one of my favorites. A lot of it comes from Leandro’s personality. His zest for life shines through every time he’s on screen.
