9 Reasons to Join Bodybuilding.com All Access in 2019
By now you’ve probably heard about our All Access programs and community. Simply put, people the world over are discovering comprehensive fitness plans offered by some of the biggest names in the fitness industry, including Hannah Eden, Kris Gethin, and Jim Stoppani, Ph.D.
In case you’ve already come up with excuses as to why you can’t make it happen in 2019, here are nine reasons why you can, and all the knowledge you need right at your fingertips.
Reason 1: Because Everyone Loves a Hard-Ass Trainer with a Heart of Gold
If you easily grow bored with training, you need to find your reason. And FYR: Hannah Eden’s 30-Day Fitness Plan offers a damn good one. Combining cardio, strength training, bodybuilding, athletic drills, and so much more, Eden puts you through brutally intense 30-minute workouts that keep your body guessing and burning fat. And her no-excuses training style and hardcore mentality won’t let you slide from meeting your goals.
“Work out for 30 minutes a day, give 150 percent, and leave your body on the floor,” Eden says.
That’s not too much to ask for the body of your dreams, right?
Reason 2: Because the Best Plan Is One That’s “Tailored” for Your Body
Aaron Marino, aka “Alpha M,” is all about men having the “total package,” meaning a solid mind, strong relationships, and lean body. If you’ve been neglecting one or even all three of these, Alpha M’s Tailored will be your guide to restructure it all. So, along with six weeks of workouts to help get you ripped, you’ll have videos with Marino that cover style and grooming tips, as well as how to increase your confidence. Being the buff dude in the gym or in your daily life is cool, but these details matter too in order to be all-around healthy.
Reason 3: Because We ALL Have the Right to Be Strong
Barbells were once intimidating for many women, but not anymore. With Uplifted and your strong, strong friend Meg Squats at your side, you’re going to make some crazy strength gains and become BFFs with the squat, bench, and deadlift.
But you don’t have to have your sights set on powerlifting to follow this program. These three compound lifts add serious all-over strength, and muscle mass, too. Maybe you’re simply hungry for gains—you wanna be jacked and strong.
“I’m taking the focus off of the scale and onto what your body can do,” Meg Squats says.
And anyone is capable of doing that no matter your age, gender, or size.
Reason 4: Because You Want a Body That’s as Much “Go” as “Show”
Andy Speer is known for training some of the most successful working professionals in Manhattan. They pay big money to look good and move well, and he has to deliver for them. Now he’s here to deliver the same for you, with Total Fitness with Andy Speer.
For eight weeks, you’ll be put through a series of workouts that encompass exactly what the name implies: building athleticism and putting the muscle you build to good use. You will see progression in your performance and appearance through four phases, each with a different focus:
- Bodyweight and general physical preparedness
- Athletic power
If you’re tired of basic weight training and desire a taste of what it’s like to be an athlete, Andy Speer has got your back.
Reason 5: Because It’s OK to Have Abs. No, Really.
Abs are made in the kitchen, but it definitely doesn’t hurt to work them in the gym, too. Fitness expert Abel Albonetti is a proponent of targeted ab work. He insists that you put in the time, effort, and intensity if you really want to see those babies pop. Just one look at Albonetti’s abs makes it tough to argue. They’re a testimony of his work ethic, as well as to what his workouts can do for you.
The beauty of 30-Day Abs with Abel Albonetti is that it can be attached to whatever program you’re currently running. Albonetti even gives you a suggested split so that your goals won’t conflict, allowing you to get the most out of this trainer. Each session is only 15-30 minutes long, so throw it on after your deadlift sessions, or on active rest/cardio days.
Reason 6: Because You Must Master the Essentials First, Grasshopper
Let’s be real: Nutrition is often more confusing than working out when you’re a newb in your fitness journey. Many people make the mistake of assuming what/how they should eat or not paying it any mind at all.
Foundations of Fitness Nutrition was created to educate you on all things food and supplement-related so you can avoid the pitfalls of fad diets and misinformation. With so many questions out there about calories, macronutrients, and supplementation, you can be assured that you’re absorbing expert information. The two experts both have Ph.D.s and RDs after their names!
Reason 7: Because Your Fitness Shouldn’t Depend on Gym Access
Just starting out? Saving money on a gym membership? Too lazy to leave the house? No reason you can’t still achieve the body you want…you’ll just have to take the first step and get up off the couch. Turn off the reality TV and IG scrolling for less than an hour, five days a week, and you’ll be well on your way to a home-built body in just eight weeks of consistency and heart-pounding sweat sessions.
In Home Body, Kym NonStop brings her instructor A-game and upbeat attitude to keep you on your toes and breathing hard as you cycle through strength workouts, full-body intervals, and circuits.
“Whoever said working out from home was easy, never did this program,” she says.
Reason 8: Because Dumbbells are a Smart Alternative to Barbells
While compound barbell movements are touted as the best way to build overall strength, don’t brush off dumbbell workouts. In The Total-Body Dumbbell Fix, Bodybuilding.com spokesmodel contest finalist Rickey Jasper II coaches you through each workout, showing you exactly how to perform the movements. All five workouts are 20 minutes or less, allowing you to combine some of them if you’d prefer a longer workout or less training days per week.
“The Fix” is set up with timed intervals as opposed to counting sets and reps. This allows you to design the workout to produce the results you want by way of how much weight and the number of reps. The choice is yours, but whatever you do, go all out! Total-body transformation doesn’t happen without total effort.
Reason 9: Because…Arms, Bro
Admit it, on the very first day you stepped into a gym, you envisioned arms the size of your torso. Somewhere along the way, you stalled, lost the fire, or flat-out weren’t consistent with the right movements. That all changes now with 30 Days to Your Best Arms.
So how exactly does the plan work? “With precise blends of heavy weights, crazy pumps, and just the right amount of volume,” says your trainer, Julian Smith.
The most common mistake that Smith sees is in the programming that people follow, and 30 days with his methods is the antidote to those dreaded soft noodle arms. Even if you’re midway through another program, you can add in these three arm routines each week to help those biceps and triceps reach new dimensions.
