Fitness Journey- BBG Week 5 Arms Abs Review | Kayla Itsines | Bikini Body Guide

June 28, 2017

Hello Everyone!

First off, I just want to say thank you for even being here! If you are new, I have been trying to get healthy and fit by following the Bikini Body Guide by Kayla Itsines. I started my Weight Loss and Fitness Journey back in November and actually made it to week 10 but was having a really hard time editing all the videos since I could only edit about 2 videos a week. I wanted to share this journey with you so I decided to back track and redo the program so that I am not editing videos that were recorded months prior. Although this has helped me with editing, unfortunately, it doesn’t show my real time results. This is something I want to disclose so I can be completely transparent with you. This is a fitness journey and I am not perfect but I am trying my best to show you my raw results and struggles with my weight loss and fitness journey. Anyway, let’s get into this!

So this is the 🙌🏼 ARMS & ABS 🙌🏼 D A Y 🙌🏼 of Week 5 of the BBG program! I honestly love following Kayla Itsines’ BBG program because it changes every week. As mentioned in my previous posts, I use Kayla’s Sweat App which is so convenient and really well done! Her app features pretty much everything you can think of to keep you on track of your fitness journey, including meal ideas, a calendar, video instructions, timers, etc.

I will say that Week 5 definitely takes it up a notch from the previous weeks. Workouts got a lot harder and more complex but that is to be expected if you are trying to push yourself and get stronger.


The caption in the video is a bit vague so to clarify, the resistance workouts consists of 2 Circuits which are repeated 2 times. Each circuit is 7 minutes long and consists of 4 different workouts. Within the 7 minutes, you try to do the 4 workouts for that circuit in their order and reps as many times as you can. There are 30 second breaks in between each circuit and a cool down at the very end.

Here is the order for the circuits:
• Circuit 1 (7 minutes)
• Break (30 Seconds)
• Circuit 2 (7 minutes)
• Break (30 Seconds)
• Circuit 1 (7 minutes)
• Break (30 Seconds)
• Circuit 2 (7 minutes)
• Break (30 Seconds)
• Cool Down

Week 5 Arms & Abs Resistance Workouts:

Circuit 1-
1. 10 Mountain Climbers + 2 Push Ups
2. Leg Raise with Hip Raise
3. Lay Down Push Ups
4. Weighted Bent Leg Jackknifes

Circuit 2-

(The exact number of reps for each exercise is in Kayla’s BBG Program)

Please note that these videos are not intended to replace Kayla’s BBG program. I am simply sharing my experience and workouts. If you would like to start on the Bikini Body Guide I recommend subscribing to her Sweat with Kayla app (I absolutely think it is worth every penny!). Kayla also offers her program in an ebook form which is a flat price and very reasonable which some people prefer that over the app.
