I went from being tired of my workouts to being excited to push play after starting Morning Meltdown 100!
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you probably know that I love Beachbody workouts. The newest release is Morning Meltdown 100 by Jericho McMatthews and it is incredible. At the time of this writing I am on Day 30 of 100 and I am loving it! With this post I would love to share my Morning Meltdown 100 review and tracking sheets with you.
What is Morning Meltdown 100?
Morning Meltdown 100 is an at-home workout designed to be done in the morning, so that you can head into your day feeling stronger, fitter, and more accomplished. It includes 100 unique, fast paced workouts to keep you motivated and challenged.
The Morning Meltdown 100 workouts are 20-30 minutes in length so that you can easily fit them into your day.
What is even more awesome is that each 20–30-minute workout features music mixed by a live DJ who follows Jericho’s lead and matches the beats to the workout. It’ll feel like a party and give you the motivation you need to keep going. What’s better than working out to great music?!
What Makes Morning Meltdown 100 Unique?
There are 100 workouts broken into 5 phases of 20 workouts each. These workouts will give you a solid rotation of cardio, resistance, and mind/body training.
Jericho has a passion for dance and martial arts, which shows in all of her workout routines. This brings a variety of different challenging moves you might not see in other workouts. For example, I especially love Fight Club, a cardio session that draws from a variety of mixed martial arts disciplines.
In addition, the resistance-based, weighted workouts included in this program are designed for muscular endurance. This means that instead of lifting a very heavy weight just a few times you will be lifting a weight 12 or more times for 2 sets. Muscular endurance essentially means that we want to be as strong as possible for as long as possible.
In addition, with this Morning Meltdown 100 review I want to let you know that how you want to complete the 100 workouts is totally up to you. Morning Meltdown 100 is a 100 day program, but there is flexibility to double your workouts so that you have built in rest days. Or you can double your sessions to get you to 100 sooner.
Is This Program Right For You?
I would say…YES! The workouts in this program are intermediate to advanced, however, there are two modifiers who demonstrate how to adjust each move if you need it. From the workouts I have completed so far, I have seen even the non-modifiers modifying their workouts. There is no shame is modifying!
Slowing down or adapting an exercise is always better than quitting. Just start with what you can do, and you’ll have plenty of time to improve. Trust me, at the end of 100 days, you’ll begin to see the difference!
On the flip side, you may be wondering if this program is enough of a challenge. I have to admit that I was worried about this at first. However, I was totally wrong. Jericho fits in so many moves during the 20-30 minutes that you will work your total body and get a great workout. You can always challenge yourself by using heavier weights during the resistance training or increasing your speed during cardio.
Good things come to those who sweat.
What Equipment Will You Need?
There is no special equipment you need to have. You’ll just need the following:
- Light, medium and heavy weights
- Workout mat/yoga mat (optional)
- The calendar to mark off your 100 workouts!
The weights that are recommend are 5, 8, 10, and 12 pound dumbbells. You may want to select dumbbells a little lighter or heavier depending upon your fitness level. Personally, I started a little lighter during the 5 Morning Meltdown 100 prep workouts to get the form of each exercise. I then moved up to heavier weights. The weights that I am using now are 8, 10, 12, and 15 pound weights.
How Can You Track Your Progress?
This Morning Meltdown 100 program materials include a calendar to help you stay on track with your workouts. In addition, I have developed tracking sheets to use with the resistance-based workouts. Tracking my performance and the weights that I lift is an important part of my body positive fitness goals.
With these Morning Meltdown 100 tracking sheets you will be able to easily write down what weights you use for each exercise. This is important for a few reasons:
- Before you push play you can review what you lifted previously and decide whether you want to challenge yourself and lift heavier weights.
- The workouts are fast-paced, so having your weights ready and lined up will prevent you from missing any of the workout.
- During the workout or immediately after, you can make notes about whether you want to lift the same weight next time or challenge yourself.
Tracking your progress will help you to stay focused on your goals, motivate you to challenge yourself, and will inspire you to wake up and press play.
