I thought I would write up a Body Beast Tempo Chest and Tris Review today. I love getting things in the mail from Beachbody! Every single package I get makes me feel as if I am opening a present from a good friend like it’s my birthday or something! Yeah, I know lol…and today, I got the Body Beast Tempo DVD!
Gearing up for my next 30 Day Challenge Group where I will be doing another round of Insanity Asylum, I decided that I not only need some more Results and Recovery Formula but also I should pick up the single Body Beast – Chest/Tris and Back/Bis DVD to sort of try it out.
I admit, I have been intrigued by Body Beast since it was released a couple of weeks ago and thought that this might be a good opportunity to test my out my inner beastliness or lack thereof before I went ahead and purchased the whole program.

TEMPO CHEST AND TRIS
One of the workouts is the Chest and Tris and Back Bis Combo Tempo DVD. Yesterday morning I did the TEMPO Chest and Tris workout and my chest is STILL sore 2 days later and I am not a newbie to working out either. My muscles were literally shaking throughout the entire workout. The tempo workouts are all about, yep…tempo.
There are three sets of each exercise and you start off with a lower weight/higher reps (15) for the first set but with 6 second negatives and 6 second positives. Then the second set of the same exercise, you increase weight/lower reps (12) but decrease the tempo time, 3 seconds up, but still 6 down. For the third, once again, you go up in weight/lower reps (8), but set your tempo time to 3 and 3 (which is still much slower than normal reps). It is MUCH more difficult than it sounds…I promise! My chest and triceps wer absolutely trashed (in a good way) from this workout. Here’s the principle behind doing tempos…
- Tempo Chest/Tris:
The number of repetitions you do in bodybuilding is important. Almost as Important as how long your muscles contract during each movement. Tempo Training is one of the most effective ways to keep your muscles under tension for longer periods of time, creating greater muscle mass overall. If you want to get big, tempo training is the way to get there. Now get ready to work.
- Tempo Back/Bis:
Same time-under-tension principles as the tempo chest and tri’s workout. Only this time, focusing on every fiber of your back and bi’s. The longer they spend contracting, the bigger they’ll get.
I was so impressed by the difficulty of this workout and the crazy isolation of the targeted muscle groups that I have no doubt that this program will produce some definite size. I plan on doing Back and Bis tonight so check back later for that review as well.
This may be my next full time program…I mean, who doesn’t want a little bit more lean muscle mass?
