ChaLean Extreme - Day 6

Monday, January 13, 2014

I've gotta say that this burn circuit (3) is my least favourite one for 3 reasons:

1. It was hard on my knees and shoulders, my two weakest body parts

2. I didn't get the calorie burn that I got with the other two.

3. There was a lot of repetition (overhead press twice, lateral raises twice, etc.)

That said, here are the exercises with the weight I used and how many reps I could do:

1. Sumo Squat w/Overhead Press - 5 lbs, 12 reps

2. Lunge w/Calf Raise - 10 lbs, 12 reps - this was hard on my knees but I could really feel it in my butt

3. Squat w/Lateral Raise - 5 lbs, 12 reps

4. Lunge w/Frontal Press (same as Overhead Press as far as I could tell) - 5 lbs, 12 reps

5. Squat w/Calf Raise - 10 lbs, 12 reps

6. Sumo Squat w/Delt Raises (same as Lateral Raise?) - 5 lbs, 10 reps

7. Squat w/Double Overhead Press - 5 lbs, 10 reps (but then we had to do Extreme so I had to do 3 more extra slow overhead presses)

8. Lunge w/Lateral Raise - 5 lbs, 12 reps

9. Extreme push-ups were next but I weenied out and just did them against the wall because it seemed like a lot of bother getting down to the ground and back up again for just 3 pushups.

10. Sumo Squat w/Calf Raise - 10 lbs, 12 reps

Workout Time - 40 mins
Calories Burned - 165

    Good for you! Sounds really challenging! Lunges really are the hardest on knees, you have to be careful with them, maybe not go so low, and easy on the shoulder weights. Squats don't bother the knees if performed with proper posture.
    Keep up the fantastic work!

    Sounds like this program is really challenging you Joanna. Your sticktuitiveness is to be admired. Do be careful not to push too hard so that your body experiences set backs and you're completely unable to do the program. The challenge is to find the place where we are pushing enough to build without injurying ourselves. You can do this.
