This is turning out to be a fantastic year for anyone subscribed to Beachbody On Demand. First, we had 80 Day Obsession, and now LIIFT4! What is LIIFT4? We don’t have many details yet, but let’s talk about what we do know.
LIIFT4 Program Breakdown:
- Trainer: Joel Freeman
- Difficulty: Intermediate
- Program Length: 8 weeks
- Commitment Time: 30-40 minutes, 4 days/week
- Equipment Needed: light, medium & heavy weights (depending on your current strength)
- Best For: toning and sculpting muscle, fat/weight loss
- Release Date: VIP Early Access open now, available on BOD Oct 1st
What is LIIFT4?
The name actually explains precisely what you’re getting with this program.
LIIFT4 = Lift + HIIT 4 days/week
These workouts focus on weight lifting to build and tone your muscles, while HIIT cardio (high intensity-interval training) help you burn fat and lose weight more quickly!
And only 4 workout days per week? That means weekends off AND a break during the week—yes! By allowing 3 days off, it gives your muscles time to rest and rebuild, meaning you’ll be able to push harder and do better on your the workout days.
It’s the perfect program for busy people!
Not only do you get 3 days off per week but each workout is only around 30 minutes long!
I know this was a downside to 80 Day Obsession for a lot of people—hour-long workouts can be hard to fit into a busy day. But just a half hour? Simple!

LIIFT4 Questions Answered!
What is the LIIFT4 meal plan?
If you’ve done any other Beachbody program, you’ve probably already guess that this nutrition plan uses the portion control containers! And you’d be right.
- Uses Portion Fix Containers (from 21 Day Fix)
- Allows 1 “Cheat Day” EVERY WEEK!
- Uses Beachbody Performance Line
There are TWO different meal plans depending on your goals: one to lose weight, one to build muscle.
And the burning question about the nutrition plan…
Is alcohol allowed on the nutrition plan?
The answer is YES! Unlike 80 Day Obsession, you’re allowed alcohol during your cheat day on the LIIFT4 plan (in moderation, of course).
What equipment do you need for LIIFT4?
Another thing to love about this the amount of equipment you’ll need:
- 3 Sets of Weights (Light/Medium/Heavy)
- OR Resistance Bands
A fitness or yoga mat and a foam roller are recommended, but not required.
There will be an option to use resistance bands instead of weights. And just like with all of our programs, the weights or resistance bands you use will depend on your current strength. If you’re not sure which size to start with, talk to your Coach!
What can you expect from the workouts?
The program is broken down into 2 phases:
- Phase 1: Build
- Phase 2: Shred
During Phase 1, the workouts will focus more on muscle building. While there will still be a HIIT component during Phase 1, the focus is more on lifting weights and building strength. As you move into Phase 2, more time will be allocated to the HIIT component to help you lose more weight and lean out.
Each day focuses of specific muscle groups and every workout starts with lifting first, then ends with some HIIT!
And you’ll never do the same workout twice.
There was a new workout filmed every single day, so just like with 80 Day Obsession, you’ll never be following along to the same video more than once.
Is LIIFT4 for men or women?
It’s for BOTH! Men and women will both get great results from this program! (I mean, did you see the results from both above?!)

I just completed 2 rounds of 80 day obsession and love the results. I’m on day 3 of liift 4. I am worried that my performance will decline/reverse or not maintain my 80 day progress. What are your thoughts on this? Do you think liift 4 can be just as intense as 80 day obsession? Thanks in advance.
Hey, Ruth! I have a good friend that was a part of the LIIF4 test group, which started IMMEDIATELY after she finished 80 Day Obsession, and I can definitely say that she made LOTS of progress with the program! It’s going to feel different, but your performance, weight loss, and strength will continue to improve with LIIFT4! I hope that helps. Good luck!
I had good results round 1 but if I go directly into a second round will I just plateau?
I’ve gone for a 2nd round on multiple Beachbody programs and have always seen progress continue. If you’re worried about plateauing, up your weights — push yourself!
