Chalean Extreme Weights

Thursday, August 08, 2013

A lot of people have messaged me about the Chalean Extreme program that I am currently doing, asking me what I'm lifting. I thought I'd just go ahead and post this here. When looking this over, there are a few things you might want to keep in mind about my numbers:

1) When I began, I owned 5lb, 8lb, 10lb, 12lb, 15lb, and 20lb dumbbell sets. I only recently picked up a pair of 25lbs, and when I do the program again (which I will eventually), I will also pick up a set of 30lbs.

2) When I began, I had never lifted heavy before. I really didn't know much about what I could do, or should be lifting. There was much trial and error.

3) As I have progressed through the program, my body has changed a lot. I have gotten smaller, stronger, and I have come to love lifting.

4) I have not yet begun the Lean Circuit. I have just completed Push (the second month) due to some life events which forced me to pause the program for a couple of weeks to deal with life.
