New Program Alert: LIIFT More

Are you ready to LIFT More?! 

Can you commit to 35–45 minutes a day, 5 days a week, for 8 weeks to help you build strength, burn major fat, and see a powerful total-body transformation.


This is a true full-body program made for those who love to lift.

To get the most variety and maximize the effectiveness of each move, you’ll need an adjustable bench — a real game-changer for your home gym that can help you see more results in less time.

But the simplicity of LIIFT4 is still at this program’s core — no-nonsense moves, perfectly paced, paired with the right combo of classic resistance training and HIIT to help get results for everyone, whether this is your first go at strength training or you’re a seasoned lifter.

Try out the SAMPLE workout here!

What Kinds of Workouts Can I Expect From LIIFT MORE?

There are 40 unique real-time workouts in LIIFT MORE with exactly the right amounts of variation and progression to keep your muscles challenged week to week.

  • 40 real-time workouts, 5 days a week, 35 to 45 minutes a day, for 8 weeks.
  • 2 Phases:
    • Phase 1 alternates traditional weightlifting days with lift + HIIT days to help you build strength and lean muscle while burning fat.
    • Phase 2 follows a similar format, but Joel changes it up with new training splits, more volume, and more intensity.
  • Every workout ends with an abs-focused finisher to shred and strengthen your core.
  • In addition to targeting every muscle group with heavy lifting, you’ll regularly incorporate total-body HIIT to rev up fat loss.
  • Joel walks you through each move to help you perfect your form and maximize your results from every rep, along with modifications when needed.
  • You also get 9 LIIFT Express bonus workouts (20 minutes each) for days when you’re short on time or just want an extra challenge.
  • Every week, you’ll get two rest days to give your muscles a chance to repair and recover fully for the following week, along with upper and lower recovery workouts help your tired muscles feel better so you can come back strong.

    What Equipment Will I need?

  • You’ll need a set of light, medium, and heavy dumbbells — keeping a range nearby will help you choose the right weights for each muscle group and increase your load as you gain strength.
  • Joel also incorporates an adjustable bench — essential for key compound lifts such as the bench press, bent-over row, and step up.
  • And for added resistance during burnouts on leg days, you can use optional Power Loops.

How Do Nutrition and Supplements Fit Into LIIFT MORE?

To really succeed with LIIFT MORE, you’ll need a nutrition plan that’s as powerful and straightforward as your workouts.

That’s why Joel recommends following either 2B Mindset or Portion Fix, two proven nutrition programs that can help you stay on track and reach your goals without counting calories or depriving yourself of the foods you love.

And since Joel really wants you to get more out of every workout, he especially recommends the Advanced Stack, aka the “Joel Stack,” of Beachbody Performance supplements.

Start with Energize before your workouts that may help with energy and performance*. On HIIT days, Hydrate may help replenish electrolytes lost through sweat and improve endurance*.

To take advantage of the post-workout muscle-building window, reach for Recover after every single session, to potentially help with recovery, repair, and soreness*. Finally, drink Recharge before bed to give your muscles some extra love while you sleep*.

The important thing is to keep your body nourished throughout LIIFT MORE while giving yourself some flexibility so you don’t feel overwhelmed.

Now let’s chat results…

How’s your mindset?

It’s crazy how our headspace can change in an instant.
Last Tuesday I had my fastest 3 mile run yet, felt great in my skin, and spent the best evening with some of my favorite people. I felt like I was finally getting back to a place where I felt comfy and happy in my body.
Wednesday morning I woke up tired, puffy, and uncomfortable in my skin. I felt hungrier than normal, started to doubt my progress, and compare past versions of myself to where I’m at now.
Did my body physically change overnight?
Not at all.
Did my mindset?
Here’s the thing with your relationship with your body: it’s constantly changing. It will never be linear, and we can’t necessarily always control the negative thoughts that pop into our heads.
BUT we can control how we choose to react to them.
In the past that negative headspace would’ve likely led me to isolate and opt to one of two extremes:
1️⃣ Skip my scheduled rest day and hit the gym even harder OR give up on my step goal all together and embrace rest day sloth mode in full force. 🦥
2️⃣ Food wise, I would have either plotted my next greatest cleanse OR ate everything in my cabinets, likely in preparation for that cleanse. 🥗
Not any more.
I took time on Wednesday to journal a bit more.
I got my steps in but also gave my body the rest it really needed. 👣
I spent some time thinking as to why I was perhaps a bit more inflamed than usual. 🤔
And I didn’t change a thing. I chose to accept my body for where it’s at. Appreciate my body for what it does for me. And move on with my day.
Because the reality is, you won’t always love your body, but it’s totally possible to always choose to accept your body, and not let those emotions dictate your actions.
Lots of love 😘

If you’re struggling…

The consensus is…. We’re struggling.
After checking in to my virtual fitness community a couple weeks ago, I’m getting the sense that the majority of us are struggling right now (myself included). Reality is, for so many of us, our lives and routines have been completely thrown out of whack over the past couple of years.
And while yes, one of the best ways to start to heal from the inside out, is to take care of you and prioritize your health, I also want to encourage you to give yourself grace.
You are doing just fine given the circumstances.
You are still showing up.
And instead of beating yourself up for where you’re at, I want to encourage you to shift that mindset to learning to love where you’re at.
Only then, can we really dive into the work of getting to where you want to be.
Let’s celebrate the small wins you’ve made. Whether that’s maintaining your progress during a chaotic time, or accomplishing other life priorities that have nothing to do with your health and fitness, or simply enjoying a fun season of life and experiencing a healthier relationship with food or your body.
They all matter.
I want you to stop and take a moment to cut yourself some slack. Pat yourself on the back for just being here. And then let’s take some small steps forward.
It’s okay to struggle.
It’s even more okay to admit that you’re struggling.
It’s not okay to quit.
Always here in your corner.

How to Create Self Love & Acceptance

𝘏𝘰𝘸 𝘥𝘰 𝘐 𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘳𝘯 𝘵𝘰 𝘭𝘰𝘷𝘦 𝘮𝘺 𝘣𝘰𝘥𝘺 𝘪𝘧 𝘐 𝘥𝘰𝘯’𝘵 𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘺 𝘭𝘪𝘬𝘦 𝘪𝘵 𝘳𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵 𝘯𝘰𝘸? ⁣
It’s really easy to say we need to love ourselves where we’re at. Actually practicing it, that’s the tough part. ⁣
When I shared that quote the other day someone justifyingly so, commented back, “𝘣𝘶𝘵 𝘩𝘰𝘸?”⁣
I want you to remember that self love doesn’t have to mean always loving the way your body looks daily. In fact, you probably never will 100% of the time. ⁣
𝐒𝐞𝐥𝐟 𝐥𝐨𝐯𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐬𝐞𝐥𝐟 𝐚𝐜𝐜𝐞𝐩𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐜𝐚𝐧 𝐬𝐢𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐲 𝐦𝐞𝐚𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐥𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐚𝐛𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐰𝐚𝐲 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐛𝐨𝐝𝐲 𝐥𝐨𝐨𝐤𝐬. ⁣
It can mean appreciating your body for all that it does for you and choosing to focus on that. 𝘋𝘰 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘢 𝘩𝘦𝘢𝘳𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘣𝘦𝘢𝘵𝘴 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘥𝘢𝘪𝘭𝘺? 𝘓𝘦𝘨𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘤𝘢𝘳𝘳𝘺 𝘺𝘰𝘶? 𝘔𝘢𝘺𝘣𝘦 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘢𝘤𝘵𝘶𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘺 𝘭𝘰𝘷𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘤𝘰𝘭𝘰𝘳 𝘰𝘧 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘦𝘺𝘦𝘴? 𝘖𝘳 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘧𝘢𝘤𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘺𝘰𝘶’𝘷𝘦 𝘢𝘭𝘸𝘢𝘺𝘴 𝘣𝘦𝘦𝘯 𝘴𝘵𝘳𝘰𝘯𝘨 𝘢𝘵 𝘱𝘶𝘴𝘩 𝘶𝘱𝘴? ⁣
It can mean recognizing that we are so much more than how our bodies look, and choosing to see yourself as you would your friend, your sister, your child. Most certainly you wouldn’t love them any more or less if they gained or lost 20lbs. Likely, the qualities you adore about them most have nothing to do with their 6 pack abs or lean legs. ⁣
It can mean choosing to honor and be kind to your body even and especially when you don’t “𝘭𝘰𝘷𝘦” it right now. ⁣
Self love can be hard but it is so crucial for not just making progress, but more importantly, sustaining it forever. ⁣
Take care of you always. ⁣
