Growing up at her family’s gym, Super Trainer Megan Davies learned a few insider tricks to help her clients build lean muscle, burn serious calories, and get the body they’ve always wanted.
Now, she’s sharing her best routines in two three-week programs designed to be done back-to-back:
#mbf Muscle Burns Fat and #mbfa Muscle Burns Fat Advanced, with VIP Early Access launching July 27 exclusively on Beachbody On Demand.
“People are always asking me the secret to losing weight for good and getting a seriously toned physique. The answer is easy because it’s so simple — no matter your goals, you need resistance training. Using weights will challenge your body, causing it to consume more energy and, in turn, burn more fat,” says Megan.
Muscle. Burns. Fat. This simple yet incredibly effective philosophy is what #mbf and #mbfa are all about.
So, What is #mbf and #mbfa?
#mbf Muscle Burns Fat and #mbfa Muscle Burns Fat Advanced are two three-week programs that incorporate strength training and cardio to help you build muscle and burn fat, with full-body workouts that are set to the beat of the music.
With simple moves you’ll learn quickly, you can let the tempo set your pace and drive your intensity for a total-body burn that will get you sweaty and spent.
“I created both programs to be done back-to-back,” Megan explains. “Ideally, you’ll start on a Monday, and commit to finishing 21 workouts. Crush the first three weeks, and you can move on to #mbfa, where I dial-up the intensity and really push your results to the next level — plus there’s a whole new challenge called Megan Minutes. Your goal is to do a set number of reps in 1 minute using your heavy weights. Don’t quit on me!”
Nutrition is a key part of all six weeks.
“Here’s the catch,” Megan says. “You can’t starve yourself. Building muscle and getting toned takes FUEL. I know it sounds counterintuitive, but you have to eat to lose weight. That includes healthy meals and your daily Shakeology and Beachbody Performance supplements.”
What Kinds of Workouts Are in #mbf and #mbfa?
Strength training happens on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and includes asymmetrical moves where you’ll use one weight instead of two. Cardio workouts are Tuesday and Thursday.
You’ll need light, medium, and heavy dumbbells, and the BOD Rope, the Cordless Indoor Jump Rope. Saturday workouts also feature EMOMs (every minute on the minute) that will push you to give everything you’ve got.
And don’t worry — this isn’t about bulking up. Megan designed these workouts to get you lean and toned for your strongest body ever.
“I’m including asymmetrical training along with symmetrical training for a reason. When you’re lifting one weight, your body is forced to compensate for the imbalance, which engages your core,” says Megan. “By challenging your body, you’ll burn more calories and get the most out of each workout.”
For the cardio workouts, the emphasis is on fat-burning, so get ready to work. You’ll do AMRAPs (as many rounds as possible) that incorporate the BOD Rope.
Sunday recovery workouts will stretch and revitalize your muscles so you’re rested and ready for Monday.
“Your body will need it!” says Megan.
“Progress isn’t always pretty, so get ready to be drenched in sweat and working hard to give me everything, every move. If at the end of three weeks you don’t feel ready to step up to #mbfa, do #mbf again all the way through, and then take on #mbfa,” she adds.
