The 21 Day Fix upper fix workout program is designed to work alongside the dietary portion of the 21 day fix program. It will help you burn calories and get into shape…fast! The great thing is that there are many different programs to choose from. Today we’re looking at the Upper fix program which is the second one in the lineup.
The 21 Day Fix Upper Fix workout program is an excellent way to burn calories, get in shape, and feel better both during and after using the 21 Day Fix program.
Along with the specific dietary requirements (meal prepping is a must), you can use the 21 Day Fix workout programs to see incredible results. They take almost no equipment; some free weights, a yoga mat, and some great workout clothing and you are all set!
21 Day Fix Upper Fix Workout Review:
The 21 Day Fix Upper Fix workout is the second in the system. You can check out my review of the Total Body Cardio Fix here.
21 Day Fix Upper Fix Workout Videos
The 21 Day Fix Upper Fix workout videos are available on DVD but they are also available for view on Beachbody on Demand. You can check out their programs here. It’s a great service and allows you to view much more than just the 21 Day Fix workout videos. You can get access to all of the great Beachbody programs at Beachbody on Demand.
I love that using Beachbody on demand to view the 21 Day Fix Upper Fix workout videos means I can workout while on the go. I can workout when we are traveling or when I’m away for business. You don’t have to miss out on your workout or your regular routine. It’s also a lot easier than packing DVD’s and something play them with!
21 Day Fix Upper Fix Workout Length
The 21 Day Fix Upper Fix workout is 30 minutes in length. You’ll need water, a towel, and some weights or a resistance band. The mat is great but not required. The workout is comprised of 2 rounds, 5 exercises in each round, each exercise lasts for 1 minute each. You get a 15 second rest between each exercise.
She does have a person on each side that is doing a modified cycle for those of you who might need to give yourself a safer alternative until you work up to full speed or weight!
The 21 Day Fix Upper Fix workout starts with a warm up of jogging in place, windmills, jumping jacks, over the top reaches, toe touches, and then again through the whole cycle.

21 Day Fix Upper Fix Workout Calories Burned
One of the excellent things about the 21 Day Fix workout (and all of the workouts) is that you can burn a lot of calories with a relatively quick program. I typically burn between 220 and 260 calories. It will vary for you individually and your intensity when working out but you can expect to burn at least 200 calories if you are giving it some pretty solid effort!
DVD’s on Amazon
You can purchase the whole system of 21 Day Fix DVD’s on Amazon right here. You can also purchase an extra set of containers. I love having more than one on hand because it makes meal prep a breeze. You can get the 21 Day Fix Extreme program too. It’s designed as a kind of secondary program for those of you who might enjoy the 21 Day Fix so much that you want to keep going!
Overall I’d say that the Upper Fix is a great workout. I get a little bit of cardio in this workout because it is a brisk pace but it’s also a nice break from the Total Body Cardio Fix workout which is much more intense.
The 21 Day Fix workout is definitely a workout that anyone and everyone can do. Even if you are not in great shape you can handle this workout. There are great modifier moves that make this accessible for everyone. You can use a resistance band, weights that suit your needs, or you can do the moves without weights until you build up some stamina.
I really can’t get over the calorie burn. I love home workouts and it’s great that I can burn some serious calories in just 30 minutes. The 21 Day Fix program makes a point to give me a great workout every time, even if it’s not a specifically cardio focused workout. This is truly a great workout. If you are following the workouts and the dietary element you will see results and feel great!
