Kayla Itsines // BBG Week 4, Day 1

Cannot believe I’m onto Week 4 already – these last 3 weeks have flown by!

I’m happy to report I managed to complete all workouts and LISS sessions, so that was 6 out of 7 days of working out.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I had to change my schedule around to make all the workouts fit due to my crappy week at work.

The 1 thing I learnt last week is that flexibility is key to completing Kayla’s BBG; there will be times when something unexpected pops up and you have to change your workouts around, and that is okay.

Being prepared and organised makes a huge difference when your schedule hasn’t gone the way you wanted. Having workout gear in your car can be a saving grace; you can fit in your resistance training or LISS sessions on the go that way!

Best of luck to anyone commencing or in the middle of their BBG weeks – you can do it!

This makes me giggle – squats anyone? :)

  1. Are you seeing any differences now that you’re going into Week 4? I’ve dabbled in the program a few times before and given up, and re-starting today for the full 12 weeks!

    Looking forward to following your progress!

    • Hey there, thanks for stopping by! I’ve followed Kayla’s advice in the guide and not taken any progress photos since I first started – I’m due to take some at the end of this week, as that will officially be the end of my 4 weeks!

      I’ve definitely started to find the exercises a little easier to complete now that I’m into Week 4. I’m hoping to see some changes, but that being said, everyone’s bodies are different and mine might take longer than 4 weeks to see any huge changes :)

      Best of luck with restarting – I’m sure you’ll be fantastic!

        • I’m pretty sure I’ve remembered that correctly, but maybe just check? I think she mentions it at the beginning of the guide, around the pages where she recommends how to take your starting photos.

          I think it’s because it’s easy to become unmotivated if you’re checking your progress every week, and you’re not seeing any difference. It can take a couple of weeks before you see any noticeable difference though, so for me, it’s best I stay away from any progress shots until I’ve done at least 4 weeks – that might not be the same for everyone though! :)

          I’ve been using 3kg dumbbells for my squats and lunges etc, as that’s all I’ve had on hand so far. I’m looking to buy 5-6kg dumbbells though to keep pushing myself :)
