DB Method 30-Day Challenge Review

I tried the DB Method for 30-days to see what all the hype was about…here are my thoughts along with before and after photos….

Full disclosure- I used the machine 25 of the 30 days. I incorporated a “rest” day each week as their workout plan suggests. My workouts ranged anywhere from 10-20 minutes and included squat exercises each time (minimum of 10 mins) in addition to incorporating arm, chest, and ab exercises to the beginning and/or end of the workouts at least 3 times per week.

As you can see from the photos, there wasn’t a huge transformation. I was kind of bummed about that, however, I did see some positive changes.

My hip flexors were super tight which resulted in frequent lower back and knee pain. The flexibility in my hips has noticeably improved and my right knee hasn’t bothered me in weeks, so there’s that 💁🏻‍♀️

I think the workouts are effective in regards to strengthening and toning. They have lots of different (free) workout videos on their YouTube channel and Instagram feed so you don’t have to get stuck in a rut doing the same exercises!

I really like the convenience of getting in a quick workout from the comfort of my living room before I start my day. I’ve never been one to workout in the mornings prior to getting this machine but I guess the saying’s true… people change 😂 Plus, if I don’t get in additional physical activity the rest of the day, at least I managed to do something good for myself albeit if only for 10 minutes.

I’ll continue to use the machine and have already begun to do their intermediate and more advanced workouts. I’m tracking my progress and will post an update should I see a significant change in my 🍑 or anything else for that matter.
