Bodybuilding.com Workout Apps!
A common question I’ve seen is “Can I workout on keto?” Absolutely! Yes, you can. One way to workout without a personal trainer is by using workout apps.
I’ve used many workout apps over the years, but the apps I keep going back to, over and over again, are the ones created by BodyBuilding.Com.

Week 1 Re-Cap: Transformation – 12 Weeks to Your Best Self
I have chosen a 12-week program to start, and have created a playlist on YouTube documenting my daily workouts.

Week 1 included three days of full-body workouts alternated with two days of cardio, followed by a bonus workout on the sixth day, and a day of rest on the seventh day.
I liked that the three full-body workout days were all different. The variety of exercises keeps the workout interesting, plus you learn many different moves for various muscle groups.
Along with a picture of the specific exercise, if you are still unsure how to perform the move, the app provides a video demonstration with one of their trainers.

The exercises in this plan incorporate weight machines, free weights, and body weight exercises. Let me tell you, I was SUPER SORE the first half of the week! Luckily, most of the soreness was gone by the end of the week.
You had a few options on the cardio days. You could choose either interval training or steady-state cardio. You also have the option to swap out one type of cardio for another. For example, you could swap jogging for the bicycle, or elliptical for the stair-master. The point of cardio day is to get your lungs and heart into shape!
Day six is a Bonus Workout Day which you can choose to do none, part or all of the exercises they recommend. Each exercise is only performed for a single set.
Final Thoughts and Progress Numbers
I was very happy with the Week 1 Workout Plan and look forward to starting Week 2. Well, looking forward to it as much as you can look forward to any workout plan.
Before I get to my progress numbers, I need to disclose that I am currently within my healthy weight range for my height. As a result, I don’t expect to see the number on the scale move much, especially since I am strength training.
My personal progress goal will be related to measurements. I’m hoping to swap out some fat for muscle! I will still include updates for weight loss or gain in my weekly reports.
Weight: down 0.8 lbs
Under Breast: down 1 inch
Breast: down 1 inch
Left Thigh: same
Right Thigh: same
L Bicep: down 0.5 inches
R Bicep: down 0.5 inches
Total Weight Change: down 0.8 lbs
Total Inches Lost = 3 inches!
