I changed the schedule around to where I work out during the week and take Sat & Sun off and this really works for me.

The most imporant thing is to stick with it and get enough rest between the circuits. Cardio days cakn be done between the circuits and still be okay.

That is exactly it! So you have a rest day in between each strength training day - but you could still do cardio which would be Burn it Off (in the Chalean Extreme series) - you just don't want to do back to back weight lifting.

Carla you're my hero. I try (emphasis added - LOL) to do the same type of workout regimen but with my cardio every morning and my ST MWF evenings. Then on Saturday I do CLX Burn it Off or a TF short DVD with the other CLX dvd-the yoga one. then on Sundays, nothing. Not even walking the dog. LOL

My workout schedule typically looks something like this:
Mon AM: strength training - PM: cardio
Tue AM: run or other cardio
Wed AM: strength training - PM: cardio
Thu AM: run or other cardio
Fri AM: strength training - PM: cardio
Sat AM: longer run
Sun: rest except for dog walks
Most days, I walk my dog a mile in the morning, and another shorter walk in the evening. Weekends I take him on as many walks around the neighborhood that he wants.
I do fit in ab workouts in amongst all the other workouts during the week.

Are you referring strictly to the ChaLEAN Extreme program, and how to follow it, or in general just working out with ANY program?

sorry to sound like an idiot, but i read so much about overtraining. so you do the 1st workout, 2nd, then 3rd and then again for 6 days and then take a rest day?

I normally do an actual workout 6 days per week, and 3 of days a lot of times I workout twice (morning and evening). My rest day I walk the dog a few times, so not total rest.

I personally work out 6 days a week and take 1 rest day. On rest days, I am not totally sedentary, I usually go for a walk or attend a Hot Yoga class. Yes, you should give your muscles a recovery day between when lifting heavy. . .maybe back and biceps one day and legs and chest the next or something like that if you are going to lift heavy each day. There's always talk about over training, but I believe if you listen to your body, you are going to know how much is too much. If you are doing Chalene extreme as it is layed out and want to run as well, I don't see that as being a problem. Also, if you are doing an Ab work outs, I think most recommendations are every other day, but you can combine them with your workouts or runs. There are some programs out there that are the same thing every day, but most of those I have seen are not recommended longer than a 30 day time period. Hope that helps a little, I know there are other opinions out there!

i need some advice: do you do the exercises every day, skip a day, combine abs with the "regular" workouts? i've read you should skip a day between workouts or you can do it every day if you work upper one day and lower the next, so i'm confused. if i run does it make a difference? thanks!
