I thought since I have done A LOT of different programs and I mention them on here I would start doing a little review about some of them for y’all.( I will also try to include where you could purchase them if I know that information.) It will be a work in progress for awhile so hang in there and keep checking backI!
Chalean Extreme (available through Beach Body) – Weights
It has 6 DVDs + an audio CD.
- Burn Basics, Band Basics and Healthy Eats & Kitchen Makeover – these just tell about the program, demo how to use bands/tubing instead of weights and help out with kitchen/food tips
- Burn Circuit 1,2,3 – During this phase you use a weight that you can perform 10-12 reps of each exercise. The exercises work upper and lower body at the same time. Burn Circuit 1 – 36 min – abs, chest, upper back Burn Circuit 2 – 38min – biceps, triceps, back Burn Circuit 3 – 32 min – shoulders, calves, deltoids

This is a program I am currently doing. I followed the guide the first time I did it but this time I’m not since I’m not adding in the extra days.(from DVDs 5 & 6) I just try to lift at least 3x/week and then I will do each phase for at least 4 weeks. I love how much this program pushes me to lift heavier weights than I used to even attempt.
Chalean is always so much fun to work-out with!! She has MANY great tips and ways to make sure that you get the most out of every move. I highly recommend this program!!!
