Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe is an upgrade for the original Brazil Butt Lift weight loss program. Both Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe and its basic version are produced by famed fitness expert Leandro Carvalho and Beachbody. Carvalho is best known for his previous fitness programs, including Brazilian Groove and Brazilian Body Surf, as well as his status as personal trainer to the stars.

Beachbody is perhaps the most dominant fitness program production company in the world, with acclaimed programs including ChaLEAN Extreme, Insanity, P90X, and Yoga booty Ballet, to name a few.

If you've already completed the original Brazil Butt Lift fitness program, you're probably familiar with its trademark combination of lively Brazilian music, motivational and articulate coaching, varied workout routines combining cardio with light strength training and focus on shaping, toning and tightening the butt, thighs and hips.

Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe fitness program takes all of these concepts one step further, instead applying them to the abdominals and arms while throwing in an additional cardiovascular workout routine.

You can purchase Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe and the original Brazil Butt Lift program separately or together as a package. While most users choose to begin with the original program before moving on to the Deluxe upgrade, it makes sense to purchase Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe exclusively if your primary fitness concerns revolve around your abs, arms and cardiovascular health.

Pros

    • Includes two strength bands with higher resistance than the one included in Brazil Butt Lift.
    • Includes ankle weights that can be used in both the standard and Deluxe routines.
    • Aesthetically similar to Brazil Butt Lift, a highly rated product among fitness program users.
    • Contains three new workouts (including cardio, abs and arms) not included with the original Brazil Butt Lift.
    • Takes Brazil Butt Lift one step closer to becoming a total body fitness program.
    • Includes a 30 day refund policy.
    • Excellent customer support offered by Beachbody.

Cons

    • Costs the same as Brazil Butt Lift despite containing fewer materials.
    • Title somewhat confusing, as the Deluxe upgrade places little emphasis on the buttocks.

Intent of Fitness Program

The intent of Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe is to expand upon the original Brazil Butt Lift fitness program, which includes seven workouts spread across three DVDs. The original version of the program combined stretching, Brazilian cardio, sculpting, light strength training, dance and floor exercises in order to help you lift, shape and tone your buttocks, thighs and waist while improving your total body fitness and cardiovascular health. The basic program also includes instructional and fitness tracking materials, such as workout calendars, workout cards and meal plans, to increase the effectiveness of the routines.

Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe assumes that you still have these auxiliary materials and expands upon the original package with these new workouts:

  • Rio Extreme - 50 minutes - A combination of cardio and sculpting moves, this routine will push your body harder than any of the aerobic workouts included in the original Brazil Butt Lift.
  • Abs Rapido - 10 minutes - This is a faster version of the Tummy Tuck workout included with Brazil Butt Lift. Abs Rapido includes a variety of core excercises that you can perform on your feet.
  • Upper Cuts - 13 minutes - This an efficient sculpting workout designed to tone, tighten and lengthen the muscles in your arms.

Aside from the three new workouts delivered on two DVDs, Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe includes a few equipment upgrades that you can also use with many of the workouts included in the original Brazil Butt Lift:

  • Green Strength Band (with higher resistance than the Yellow Strength Band included in Brazil Butt Lift)
  • Red Strength Band (with higher resistance than the Green Strength Band)
  • Ankle Weights (to increase the efficiency and intensity of the leg exercises in order to lengthen, strengthen and tone the thighs)

Primary Areas Worked

The original Brazil Butt Lift focuses mostly on the buttocks, hips, waist and thighs. This is accomplished by what Carvalho describes as "TriAngle Training," in which your butt and its surrounding areas are worked from several different angles in order to lift, shape and tone the buttocks muscles including the gluteus maximus, medius and minimus. Brazil Butt Lift also includes cardio, abdominal and total body sculpting workouts designed to improve your overall fitness, not just the appearance of your butt.

Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe takes this approach a step further and applies the core concepts of TriAngle Training to other areas of the body. The Deluxe edition places additional emphasis on cardiovascular health, and features new routines specifically designed to work your abs and arms.

By using Brazil Butt Lift and its Deluxe upgrade together, you'll have something close to a total body workout with an emphasis on lower body fitness and overall cardiovascular health.

Program Length/Frequency

The Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe fitness program has a duration of 90 days, though its possible to create a customized plan using the workout calendars included with the original edition. The frequency with which you'll perform the workouts depends on your goals and current fitness levels, as well as your body type and the areas of the body on which you intend to focus. For best results, you can expect to work out for approximately one hour per day, five to six days per week.

Effectiveness/Results of the Program

By following the Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe weight loss program exactly, it's possible to see tangible results within a week. However, most continue with the program for a full 90 days as per the workout calendars included with the original version of Brazil Butt Lift. The success stories offered on the Beachbody website describe a loss of 15 to 30 pounds over the course of three months, and these results are in line with what's indicated in the product's user reviews. Most users find that the program is most effective when using Brazil Butt Lift and its Deluxe upgrade in combination. The user reviews highlight a few other important points about the effectiveness and value of Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe:

  • The included cardio program, Rio Extreme, is quite difficult for beginners but serves as an excellent high-intensity full body workout once you get used to it.
  • The instruction offered by Leandro can be somewhat confusing if you're not already familiar with his style from the original Brazil Butt Lift.
  • The included abs and arms workouts are very effective for their specific purposes.
  • Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe is somewhat overpriced given its lack of materials in comparison to the original version.

Equipment/Space Requirements

Those who are upgrading from Brazil Butt Lift to its Deluxe edition will be happy to know that Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe solves some of the equipment issues that the original version created. Some of the workouts included in both programs call for ankle weights, which are only included in the Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe upgrade. Many of the workouts also call for resistance bands. While a lightweight strength band was included in Brazil Butt Lift, many users said that they wanted more resistance after getting accustomed to the moves. Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe solves this problem by offering two additional strength bands with progressively higher resistance.

If you've already met the equipment requirements for Brazil Butt Lift, you won't need to purchase anything new. Otherwise, you should make sure that you have a gym mat or yoga mat, lightweight, loose-fitting clothing, a few water bottles and a towel. If you're serious about pursuing the cardio components of the program, you might also consider investing in a heart rate monitor.

Both Brazil Butt Lift and Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe can be completed at home with a TV and DVD player, and no special gym equipment is required.

Physical Requirements

The physical requirements imposed by both Brazil Butt Lift and Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe are quite lenient. The programs are designed for compatibility with virtually any body type and fitness level, though some of the moves may be difficult at first for those without a base level of cardiovascular fitness.

With that said, Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe assumes that you've completed the original Brazil Butt Lift program, or at least gained some familiarity with the terminology and moves contained within it. As such, Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe is designed as an extension of the original program, and most of the individuals who try the Deluxe edition have already experienced the benefits available from Brazil Butt Lift.

Overall, Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe is a weight loss program of moderate difficulty that virtually anyone can start with immediately. Instructor Leandro Carvalho emphasizes the importance of "doing your best and forgetting the rest," which are comforting words for those who may be intimidated by the apparent intensity of the program.

Support

Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe comes with the full support of Beachbody, the company that produced the original Brazil Butt Lift weight loss kit and other popular programs including ChaLEAN Extreme and P90X. When you purchase the program, you'll gain full access to the Beachbody online community, which includes active message boards filled with advice and weight loss stories from real fitness professionals and Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe customers.

  • Email web form

All of these support methods are available 24/7.

Cost

If you already own the Brazil Butt Lift weight loss program, you can upgrade to Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe for $59.85 or three installment payments of $19.95, plus $12.95 shipping and handling. If you're trying out Brazil Butt Lift for the first time, you can purchase the original package with the Deluxe upgrade for a total of $119.70 plus shipping.

The Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe upgrade package includes two additional DVDs with three new workouts, as well as two higher resistance strength bands and ankle weights to improve the efficiency of the lower body workouts.

Both the original Brazil Butt Lift and its Deluxe upgrade include a 30 day money-back guarantee in which you can receive a full refund minus shipping and handling fees. en.odessa.natashaescort.com

Summary

Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe is a solid purchase for those who already know and love the original Brazil Butt Lift weight loss program and are ready for additional routines. The Deluxe upgrade is somewhat expensive given the fact that it costs the same amount as the original version but contains fewer materials overall. However, two DVDs, two strength bands and ankle weights are still worth the retail price of under $60, especially since the 30 day return policy offers a safety net in case you're not satisfied with the package.

It's important to understand what you're getting into before purchasing the program. Despite its name, Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe places little focus on the buttocks and surrounding areas, and for this reason, it's better to purchase the original version first (or both in a single order) if you're mainly concerned with lower body fitness. However, if you understand that the Deluxe version focuses on arms, abs and cardio and you're looking to target those areas anyways, it's feasible to only purchase the Deluxe upgrade.

Overall, Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe offers the quality you'd expect from a Beachbody product and serves as an appropriate compliment to Brazil Butt Lift.
