Glad you're loving it so much! I track the ST as circuit training. Also, if you want to create a workout group for each workout, even though it takes some time, it's well worth it. Check out this topic "ChaLEAN EXTREME Phases & Circuits":
There's a link to each of the three phases. Scroll to the very first post and I've typed in all of the moves. All you have to do is create a workout group (i.e., CE BC1, BC2, etc.), then add a workout. You can copy/paste the individual ST moves, add the weight you're using and the reps. That way, when you go into add your cardio/st for that day, you just add the workout group.
If you change the amount of weights you use, or reps, just edit it, save it, and then add it. Hope this helps.
Hi Group! Sooo glad I found this forum! I'm on my third week of the Burn phase. Just complete my Burn 1 workout for the the week. LOVE that I've already increased my weights and can complete 4 pushups on my toes! I LOVE this workout and feel so powerful afterwards and I'm still a little "high" from it right now. Anyone know how I can track my ChaLean Extreme in the fitness tracker?
I've made a few changes to the Chalean Extreme order of workouts because this is my second time around on it (the first time was about a year ago and I quit, yes, quit, after about 6 weeks). I wasn't seeing the changes in my weight I wanted, but I realized that THIS time I need to focus on my clothes, which ARE already fitting better just after two weeks!
So, I will complete the weight training, and after the weight training I immediately complete her ab workout instead of waiting. On my other days, instead of doing Chalean's cardio I hit the elliptical for about an hour. This is what has been working for me and has kept me committed to the program. My schedule is this:
Sunday: Burn 1 and Ab Burner Monday: Off (hate working out on Mondays!) Tuesday: Burn 2 and Ab Burner Wednesday: 45-55 minutes of elliptical at gym Thursday: Burn 3 and Ab Burner Friday: 45-55 minutes of elliptical (or I might take off) Saturday: 45-55 minutes of elliptical if I took Friday off
I also track my workouts in a spiral notebook where I hand write a chart before each workout and make 4 columns: 1. name of exercise 2. weight 3. reps 4. weight to use next workout
