H20 Travel Plan - Team Body Project - Alex and Daniel Bartlett

H20 Travel Plan
Team Body Project
Alex and Daniel Bartlett

I have now completed 6 workout plans with TBP and at the post of this review worked out over 100 days straight using TBP videos. H20 Stands for HIIT 20, or High Intensity Interval Training in 20 Minutes. And this program is very different than any of the others I have done from TBP. With this program you have 5 workouts, each under 24 minutes with warm-up and cool down, stretch.

As the sixth program from Team body project that I have completed this year, this one pushed me the most by far. Even though the workouts were short and concise. This past summer I wrote a piece called Starting Over in Southwestern Ontario! A Fitness Update! What I started with was the workout videos from team Body Project, and specifically Real Start Just Move. You can watch that video on YouTube, or even workout with it. I have been a member of Team Body Project for three years now, but only just started the videos. I am in my 50th year, and I really needed to get back at it. You can actually find some of the H20 workouts on YouTube, even if you do not have a TBP premium or free membership.

Team Body Project is a website, an app and a community. And the community is part of what makes this an excellent resource for your health and fitness. The private community on Facebook and the forums on the website are very supportive and encouraging. But what really helped me is that the workouts in the Real Start program are geared for anyone. Each video has three participants. Daniel and Alex lead the videos and Natasha and Lisa. Natasha usually works out at a harder pace, and Lisa at a modified level. I decided to do this plan because I had upcoming work travel. I wanted to have a plan in place, and because of my knee recovery was not sure I could handle these workouts. So, I did it the week before I travelled to make sure I could do it. If we fail to plan, we plan to fail, and I wanted to keep my workouts going while away from home and my normal schedule and routine. 

This is a one week program with 5 workouts. All 5 workouts are both Alex and Daniel and the alternate leading exercises. 

The gear you will need:

The workouts are:
H20 Ice Baby 
H20 Sub Zero 
H20 Refresh 
H20 Simmer 
H20 Boiling Point

You can actually access all five workouts in this plan via YouTube, the TBP website, or through the TBP app. The pace of this workout is intense. Each day you do 5 exercises, 30 seconds activity 15 seconds break, and repeat each exercise 3 or 4 times. Three times if not side specific 4 times if we need to do each side twice. The workout is 20 minutes. With a brief warmup and cool down and stretch afterwards. The program is designed for if you are travelling and do not have any gear. You can do it in your hotel room with just a towel on the floor in place of a mat. 

This is a great program and excellent switch of pace and what a pace you keep during these workouts. As mentioned it is free and available on a number of platforms so give it a try. 

And do not just take my word for it check out Kylie Young’s story or the other testimonials on the site. I can say that TBP is one of the best resources for health and fitness that I have ever come across. 

A great program, especially when time is tight, or for when on the road. Thank you Alex and Daniel.
