ChaLEAN Extreme?

Saturday, October 19, 2013

I don't belong to a gym anymore. Unless I walk outside, which now is becoming less likely because the weather is changing, I work out in my living room using DVDs or YouTube videos.

I really want to improve my muscle definition, but I really struggle with ST. Almost everything I do is cardio. I have seen lots of people post on SP about ChaLEAN Extreme and did some reading about it tonight. But I guess I'm hoping to get some feedback on it from other SP folks.

I think I get the gist of what it is. But like do you have to be at a certain fitness level even to start it? I don't want to shell out the money for it and pop in the first DVD only to be disappointed and mad at myself because it's too hard right from the very beginning. Many of the reviews I read on Amazon were like "I'm a 20-year-old fitness instructor ...". That's not me. I'm 44 and I have yet to see the 220s.

So I need some realistic feedback from some opinionated Sparkers!

    Hi there, I am 330lbs and I loved doing Chalean Extreme until I pushed my weights up too high, tried doing the advance versions because I was fitter and stronger than before and scored myself shoulder bursitis and wound up gaining 44lbs, i was in the 280's when I began chalean after using turbo fire to get me down to the 280's. If you love lifting weights then chalean is great, you just use weights that suit, or not weights, or a resistance band, and just take it easy though. The thing I found hardest was the slow pace after doing turbo fire so long I was amped to be moving heaps! I don't think you'll waste your money with either program. (BTW I'm not a beachbody coach as I don't even reside in US, I just genuinely enjoyed the workouts)

    I am 58 and 175 and just ordered it. BUT - I love ST. There is a school of thought that ST will do more for you than cardio ever could, we have just been socially trained that men lift and women "jump around". (I hate cardio - can ya tell?) LOL

I should be getting mine on Tuesday but will not get it started until Sunday.

I agree - hop over to youtube and take a look. Cuz neither your age or your weight should be holding you back. Not a good excuse!!

  if you go to youtube and search it they have a whole bunch of reviews and such. I know one of my fellow spark friends has been doing it and likes it. Hope you find what you are looking for!
