The program was designed specifically for women by a woman who is a top fitness expert and knows what works for women and what does not, setting it apart from generic fitness programs for both genders. This review will reveal what this program can do for women, the pros, cons and how flexible it is.
How Does Full Body Licious Work?
According to Flavia, the key to a top female physique is simply the ratio between the body fat and the muscle mass composition. Reduce fat (not generic body weight, not water, but adipose tissue only) and replaced it with a suitable amount of muscle and you’ll have a transformed physique.
The way to do this is by performing workout sessions targeting each major muscle group without neglecting the rest of the body. The workouts can be made at the gym or at home with basic equipment as illustrated by the home gym version part of the program. Even though the workouts are relatively simple, they are not easy because they require commitments and effort, Flavia’s mantra being: “You don’t get a body like mine training like a girl!”
However, this is the very same program that helped Flavia Del Mointe reduce her body fat from 18% to 13.4% in less than 10 weeks to get ready for the pictures shown on her website. Expected results, Flavia claims, are around 1% to 2% body fat loss each week for about 3 to 4 months before the workouts need to be restructured to prevent adaptation and staleness.
This kind of training triggers metabolism into overdrive, burning fat up to 48 hours after a workout, therefore reducing the fat layer above the muscles and giving definition. As a result, the body composition ratio completely changes the way your body look.
Who Is Flavia Del Monte?
Flavia Del Monte is a certified fitness trainer, nurse and nutritionist who also happens to be the wife of Vince Del Monte, a highly regarded fitness expert, natural bodybuilder and model already well known for his own No Nonsense Muscle Building Program for men. She also authored her other program Curvalicious Workout, as reviewed here.
Flavia herself has years of experience in training and nutrition as testified by her own and her clients achievements and she felt the need to create a fitness, nutrition and workout program specifically designed for women.
With years of experience in the gym she has come across all sorts of myths and misconceptions among women who try to achieve an athletic, sexy physique but consistently make mistakes in order to do so.
What Are The Benefits Of Full Body Licious Workout?
Full Body Licious is designed to achieve a low fat, high definition athletic physique. The idea is to target one major muscle group at each session without forgetting to challenge also the rest of the body. This is to avoid staleness and to keep the body constantly challenged so as to keep metabolism high and burn fat.
Each session is centered mainly around a single muscle group targeted with heavy exercises but also with a series of different complementary movements to keep the whole body active and the metabolic rate high. The workouts are performed in a 5 day a week split routine fashion as demonstrated by the online videos that come with the program to illustrate how to do it, in addition to the PDF manual.
The breakdown is as follow:
- Tight And Trim Thighs workout day.
- Show Off Stomach workout day.
- Booty Booster workout day.
- Sleek And Shapely Shoulders workout day.
- Beautiful Backside workout day.
How flexible Is The Program?
The beauty of this approach is that you can focus on each body part and drill it properly during its allocated session but also keep the rest of the body going, so it is a bit like full body workouts but of course with just one muscle group trained to failure to avoid over training.
The workout sessions can be performed at the gym or at home and are beginner friendly because they can be implemented with your own body weight or resistance bands. This clever approach, together with the nutritional guidelines illustrated in the program, has worked very well for Flavia and her clients. Her pictures speak for themselves.
Flavia is not totally against all supplements, some are ok to use, but they are absolutely optional in a totally natural program. Most are not though, and a waste of money.
More importantly, Full Body Licious comes with easy to follow nutritional guidelines on all the major components of a balanced, healthy diet for any lady challenging her body through hard workout sessions, muscle growth and fat burning metabolism.
