Uh, no, everyone is NOT using Barbie weights. They are using Bowflex adjustable weights that go up to 90 lbs. The first month involves compound exercises, the second single exercises, and I think the third is also compound exercises. Chalene focuses on form, low reps, and multiple exercises for each target area. I'm pretty sure "extreme" was used because it rhymes. It is a solid program that includes warm-ups, stretching and cardio. My only comment would be that it could use some more cardio, actually. I plan on doing a hybrid with TurboFire.
I see nothing wrong in paying for a program if that's what it takes to motivate you. I like that the Beachbody programs come with schedules. I will grant that they are kind of expensive.
No power in the 'verse can stop me.
