Brazil Butt Lift Master Series Ipanema Booty Review

Brazil Butt Lift Master Series Ipanema Booty Review

Ok, I was totally worried that this workout would be the dancey workout of the series – isn’t there always a dancey one in there somewhere? As you will see in my video below, I really have no dance skills whatsoever. Don’t ask me to dance, you’ll be sad you did. I run or do other sports where I’m moving forward – simple. FORTUNATELY, after the warm-up, this workout is all focused leg and glute work. YES!

This workout is all about the legs and booty. Leandro dispenses with the stability ball and gets back to using just ankle weights and dumbbells. There isn’t really anything new or terribly creative, but it is all effective work. I find that combined with the other two workouts in the series, Brazil Butt Lift Master Series is rounded out with Ipanema Booty. HA!

The girls in the video use 15lb dumbbells for the squat and lunge work, but use whatever you have or suits you. I paired up some 5s and 3s because that’s what was handy and it was sufficient for a first-viewing. I also used 2lb ankle weights. I think having adjustable weights is the way to go with these workouts since you’ll want to gradually add more as you get stronger.

Does Brazil Butt Lift Master Series work as a standalone?

Brazil Butt Lift Master Series is marketed to be a standalone program to follow the original BBL. Another 30 days to build upon what you’ve done the first 30 days. It comes with 3 workouts and the schedule rotates through them in various ways, however, for me, it might get old to do just the three workouts for 30 days. I like a lot of variety in my home workouts. BUT, I LOVE that there is a hybrid calendar for the Master Series and the original BBL! I think with all of those workouts put together you’d have an awesome total package that would feel fresh and have a lot of variety. I am super happy Beachbody has added these extra workouts, and that they aren’t torturing the non-dancers but rather offering booty workouts that get right to the point.

Brazil Butt Lift Master Series Bikini Body Review

Brazil Butt Lift Master Series Bikini Body Review

Here we go, day 2! Are you sore from day 1? I’m hearing a little “howdy” from my booty and inner thighs! Fortunately, Brazil Butt Lift – Bikini Body, today’s workout, was much gentler on the bum bum. In fact, I found it to be pretty gentle overall. Considering it has been awhile since I’ve done ab and upper body work, this was a nice “come back to me” workout.

Bikini Body is a 25-minute head-to-toe workout. You need the stability ball and 2 pairs of hand weights – they recommended 3lbs and 5lbs. I listened and used the super light weights, although I can see moving up very quickly. The focus with this workout is the stabilizing muscles while simultaneously working on arms, shoulders, abs, back, and just a little of the legs. The challenge doesn’t lie in the moves themselves, but the fact that you’re on the stability ball, or using it in some way. Again, Leandro worked to include the ball in any way possible (Is this a theme I’m detecting in this edition of Brazil Butt Lift?) – this, for me, led to a really strange warmup. Those not familiar with using a stability ball in a workout will enjoy the change of pace and the new challenge to the core and general balance. And, those looking for more of a challenge, modify! Go one-footed when seated on the ball. Do the pushups with your toes on the ball. Get creative! (I’ll show some of these next time.)

Brazil Butt Lift workout without much booty work?

What’s the big idea here? Other than a few squats in the warm-up, there’s not much booty work in Bikini Body. I think the title says it all, though. Bikini Body. Emphasis here is on the REST of the body, so you have that complete package when you’re done. And the workout is efficient since you’re not just isolating the muscles that you’re working on with the dumbbells, but rather you’re working your entire body synergistically by using the stability ball. Leandro also throws in a chest fly move that will help lift the boobies, ladies! He’s the anti-sag king! :-P

Who is Brazil Butt Lift Master Series for?

Great question! I’ll start with who I think it is NOT for. Definitely not for pregnant women. There is so much stability work with your belly on the ball, that would just not work out at all. Additionally, your balance changes while pregnant so I think it’s best to wait until after baby. This program is also probably not for those that are looking for something intense and seriously sweat-inducing. I found it to be fairly light. It IS for people looking for head-to-toe work that won’t build bulk, those looking for stability work, and those looking for new variety to add to their library.

The full kit does not come with ankle weights or dumbbells, so you’ll need your own. Here is a picture of what you get with the kit. (The included foot pump for the ball is not pictured.)



Tomorrow is Day 3, “Ipanema Booty”. I am SURE this one will include dancing so please forgive what you will be seeing from me! The Brazil Butt Lift dancing workouts are always a hoot, and definitely not something I’m good at!

Brazil Butt Lift Master Series Higher and Tighter Review

Brazil Butt Lift Master Series Higher and Tighter Review

Beachbody has JUST released the follow-up program to the original Brazil Butt Lift – Brazil Butt Lift Master Series! I quickly ordered a copy and got started today. I have to say – OUCH!!

OK, I fully admit that I haven’t done any glute work at all in the last six months, but I have been running between 35-120 miles per week, so I’m certainly not out of shape. All that running has left my booty a bit flat so this was just what I’ve been waiting for!

This first workout is slow, focused work. I used the stability ball and ankle weights, although I HIGHLY recommend starting with no ankle weights! There are three sets of the focused work that left my booty CRYING! This workout uses the stability ball with nearly every exercise, including the warm-up and cool-down. I found some of the cool-down stretches to be awkward with the ball, almost as if he was hell-bent on having the ball be part of the move regardless of the less than favorable form. I opted to modify these with better form in mind.

Maybe it is because I was on the floor focusing, but Leandro seems to be less flamboyant, except for the funny stability ball figure eights. HA!

What is the big idea with Brazil Butt Lift Master Series?

The original BBL was such a hit, fans were ready for more and for more difficult challenges. Plus, Leandro is always busy cooking up more fun and interesting ways to blast the butt! The idea here is to pick up where you left off with BBL and go even further. Or, if you’re brave, jump right in to the Master Series. If you’re looking for a super lifted booty, you’ve come to the right workout! Leandro gets deeper into the work with the “Triangle Training”, working the angles even more. This will help fix flat bums, bubbly bums, saggy bums, no bums, every bum. Working the three glute heads together will give you the best, most efficient booty workout!

What comes with the Brazil Butt Lift Master Series kit?

This is a 30-day workout that comes with three discs, four if you order through a coach, like me. It also comes with a big blue stability ball and ball inflating pump, a 30-day calendar plus an additional 30-day hybrid calendar to be used with the original Brazil Butt Lift series, and a few food guides. All you need for this first workout is your own ankle weights (optional), floor space, and a DVD player.


Tomorrow is Day 2, “Bikini Body”. I have no idea what to expect, so stay tuned for another post and video! If it involves dancing of any kind, be prepared to laugh at me becauce I cannot dance! In the meantime, click the link below to learn how you can get your own copy.
