Well the journey with Revabs is complete.
I’ve finished the 90 day program and with the exception of the last 5 workouts because of hurting my back I stayed on schedule and found the time to do each of the workouts even though I’ve been on the road 3-5 days per week.
Just that accomplishment is enough for me to be satisfied, however, staying on schedule doesn’t do any good unless there were some type of results.
As I’m writing this article and again am on the road, I don’t have the weights and measures with me but will edit the article to include them once I get home and have the opportunity to do so.
So how do I feel about this program?
Overall I enjoyed the workouts, including the instructor Brett Hoebel, and his “cast of characters” assisting him with the making of the workouts. I trust they were in better shape then I was from the start, but that’s not to say I’m not happy with the results.
The program, besides focusing on your abs also works on strength and endurance which makes it a full body workout, and Brett also stresses about good nutrition and getting your proper rest in order to get the best results possible.
One of things I really liked about this program was the length of the workouts. They ranged from 15- 45 min. and being on the road that was a big plus in choosing to do Revabs. The workout length along with having the flexibility of using resistance bands instead of weights for some of the exercises made Revabs a good match for my schedule.
The results I’ve seen?
There is some definition of the abs, but also with all the lunge type moves my thighs are also quite defined now in areas they were not before, also my upper body I’ve noticed more definition from before I started the workouts.
Some of the things that I did feel made a difference?
Once into the second phase I did go out and buy a pair of 15 pound dumbbells. Though the bands are good for on the road there are some exercises that you cannot do with the band so having a pair of dumbbells is a definite plus in order to get the “full effect” of the program. Also what made the biggest impact on me with using the weights was doing exercises with them being a combined weigh of 30 pounds was the amount of weight I’ve lost since starting to watch my diet and working out and yet it was a challenge using them, though when I was walking around with that extra weight on me I didn’t even think about how much my body had to work in order to function with carrying the additional weight.
While working the program some of the additional changes to my diet that I made were having some of the P90X Protein Bars for snacks and also starting drinking Shakeology whenever I was home. Because of the constant change in schedule I can’t say whether they’ve made a huge difference in my performance, though I do find when I don’t drink Shakeology I did feel that I missed it.
What I did not like about the program.
I can’t really say there was something I didn’t like about the program although there seem to always be an exercise that gave me difficulty and was not able to improve enough to be doing like the rest of the group by the end. This had to do with the way I’m built and not any fault of the move itself though.
If I had the opportunity would I do REVABS again?
I’d say definitely yes, though not right away. Before starting REVABS, I was doing a hybrid of workouts and for the moment I think I will go back to that before focusing on just one workout again.
So my final thoughts on Revabs.
Definitley a good program and you will see results with it, but like any other program you have to enjoy it in order to get the best results out of it. If you don’t enjoy the workouts you’ll end up going through the motions and not get the best results possible.
If you like workouts that you can do on the road or at home, don’t take up alot of time and can still see results then REVABS is a workout to consider.
