Brazil Butt Lift Sculpt is a 50-minute strength-training/cardio workout in the Brazil Butt Lift series. Its overall goal is to get your entire body shaped nicely along with where you need it the most…your butt!
Sculpt is the overall body toning exercise video in the Brazil Butt Lift at-home workout program. It is predominantly a weightlifting workout that moves at a pretty quick pace to get your body in shape – fast.
There’s No Rest in Sculpt
One thing you need to be aware of is that Sculpt is part cardio, meaning that you’re not given much rest to recover between sets. This means your heart rate stays elevated throughout, providing you with an awesome, fat-burning toning session. It’s more like circuit training than regular weightlifting.
Sculpt is fun, but it’s challenging at the same time to really get you and your muscles toned in as little as 60 days. You do a series of moves that work each body part with high repetition/low weight exercises. While some are more classic moves like overhead presses or squats, many have a dance-inspired spin to them – a Leandro specialty. Buy Brazil Butt Lift now and change your body forever.
Body Parts Worked
In the Sculpt workout, you work everything from small muscle groups like your rear deltoids to larger muscle groups like your quadriceps. And yes, you do work your butt in the compound moves he has you doing, but not as much as you do in High & Tight. You really work your arms and shoulders, abs, and chest in Sculpt which provides a very well-rounded exercise program. What good is a great looking butt with flabby arms?
Is the Sculpt Workout Hard?
Sculpt is difficult – I’m not going to lie. If you do it exactly as they do, you will sweat hard. Luckily, you can easily adjust the workout to your own fitness level. Here are a few suggestions for making the workout a bit easier the first several times:
- Use little or no weight the first few times, but make sure you challenge yourself as time goes on.
- Do the reps a little bit slower than they do.
- Put your knees down during the push-up exercises.
- Follow Level 1 ladies throughout.
It’s definitely easy to tone it down to your fitness level, which is why you should NOT be worried about this one. You will feel awesome when the workout’s over regardless. There are a few things you will need in your arsenal of workout supplies, which leads me to the equipment topic.
Unfortunately, you do need some equipment for the Brazil Butt Lift’s Sculpt workout, but not too much. The good news is that you might have some of it already and will use it in the future if you want to keep fit – all the equipment is an investment to your health. Here’s what you’ll need:
- Dumbbells ranging from 3-10 lbs, depending on your current fitness level or a resistance band
- Resistance band if you choose not to use weights
- Yoga mat
Of course if you want to work harder, you simply add more weights. The video recommends using anything from 3-10 lb weights, however, I was using mostly 10 and 15 lb weights for the exercises by the end, and I LOVE how my body looks now. But I have always loved well-sculpted arms and shoulders.
You can find dumbbells fairly affordable at your local superstore. I would not suggest buying any online as shipping can get expensive. If you don’t want to buy four sets of weights like 3’s, 5’s, 8’s and 10’s, I would suggest at least shooting for 5 and 10 lb weights. You can always use your ankle weights or soup cans for smaller muscle groups.
Weights vs Resistance Band
In addition, there is always the option of using a resistance band for your strength training. The woman named Angela uses the resistance band throughout the Sculpt workout – simply follow her, and you’ll be all set. You will still get a great workout with the resistance band and it will cost a lot less than a set of dumbbells, but dumbbells of varying weights where you can continue to challenge yourself throughout the program by upping your weight for the exercises will make the program more intense and give you a better end result.
Yoga Mat, Please
As far as a yoga mat, you may think you don’t need one, but I would strongly suggest purchasing one – it will be worth every penny. After bruising my spine a couple times, I went out and had to buy one. That floor carpet that seems pretty plush is not that plush once you start rolling around on it. Plus, you won’t slide around during the plank or mermaid push-up portions.
Sculpt is a nice addition to the dance-based, Brazilian-inspired Brazil Butt Lift at-home workout program. It’s just another one of Leandro’s perfectly planned workouts to work synergistically with the other workouts to get you the best butt and body of your life.
