Brazil Butt Lift Max Results
with trainer Leandro Carvalho
You will love it if:
The workouts in this series range from beginner to intermediate and include mostly no, low, or moderate impact moves. I liked the “Uppercuts” arm sculpting workout and “Rio Extreme” sculpting/cardiovascular workout video in this series much better than the “Sculpt” and “Cardio Axe” workouts from his original Brazil Butt Lift series. I enjoyed the mix between strength and cardio moves in the “Rio Extreme” video because you are toning your muscles while boosting your heart rate and burning fat. What I liked about the Uppercuts workout compared with other arm workouts is that the exercises are designed so that your muscles will become fatigued on every exercise without switching weights. Most arm workouts include easy moves and hard moves mixed together, so you are constantly rushing to switch weights in between exercises and trying to guess which size weight you will need for each exercise in order to get a good workout. Since this series is intended to be a supplement to the original Brazil Butt Lift, I would recommend replacing the “Sculpt” and “Cardio Axe” workouts with the “Uppercuts” and “Rio Extreme.”
As for the “Abs Rapido” workout, I was not a huge fan. Like the “Tummy Tuck” workout in the original series, it had super easy moves and super hard moves mixed together—not a great combination. Leondro sometimes has an actor demonstrate an easier, modified version of the moves, but (with the exception of the plank sequence in the Abs Rapido video) there is usually not much difference between the regular workout and the easier version.
Leandro has a fairly thick accent, but it is not so thick that you cannot understand him. The moves are easy enough to follow even without the sound on, so you don’t really need to understand everything he says anyway. His personality is encouraging and pleasant; he always wears a big smile and his eyes sparkle and shine throughout the workout, making him pleasant to workout with. The videography cuts back and forth between a workout studio and a beach scene. The actresses in the beach scene are not always doing the moves exactly the same way as the actors and actresses in the workout studio, but the differences are not huge. Leandro does most of the moves with you but also walks around to check the form of the actors and give some tips on how to do the moves correctly.
All of these workouts require 3 to 10 pound hand-weights (depending on your fitness level). I would also recommend a yoga mat or soft carpet for some of the core moves.
For the Rio Extreme workout, you will need plenty of space to lunge forward, lunge backward, and lunge from side to side without worrying about hitting anything. The Uppercuts and Abs Rapido workouts require enough room to stretch your arms out to the side and front. You won’t be doing a lot of lateral jumping moves, so overhead space isn’t a big concern.
Before starting this workout, you should be able to sustain moderate cardiovascular activity for 30-45 minutes (ex. aerobics, biking, fast walking, or slow jogging), do 10-20 lunges and plies in a row, and hold a plank for about 1 minute.
What NOT to Expect
Don’t expect to get a great butt workout with these videos! Even though the name says Brazil Butt Lift Maximum Results, these videos are meant as a supplement to the original Brazil Butt Lift, not as a stand-alone program (unless you are looking for a program that doesn’t target your butt). These videos will give you a good intermediate arm, full-body, and cardiovascular workout, but none of the videos target your bootie!
