This morning I just finished Chalean Extreme, a 90 day workout program which stresses about lifting heavy for less reps.
As with the other programs I haven’t lost much weight if any, but have noticed muscle definition that wasn’t there at the beginning of the program.
Because of doing these workouts for the most part “on the road”, my diet wasn’t exactly what it should’ve been according to the nutrition guide, but I am happy with my “toned”results.
As mentioned in previous blogs I continued with drinking my Shakeology and while on the road limited my P90x Protein Bars to one a day for a snack if needed.
Also even though I did use the P90X Recovery Formula, I used it only when I though I needed to and rarely used 2 scoops as it seemed that one usually did the trick.
Instead of doing the “Burn It Off” workout I substituted the Turbo Jam Fat Blaster that was included for two reasons. One the other was getting a bit boring and this was a good change of pace and shorter. Second I feel this is a good “warm-up” for Turbo-Fire which was just released and is the next workout on the agenda. The Fat Blaster workout has Interval training which is like what the basis of Turbo-Fire HIIT training is based on.
i would recommend this workout for someone to do, and if I were to do it again I would most likely do it as a “hybrid” type workout. There is a 4th phase which combines all the workouts but will take some time off from the regimen and wait for Turbo-Fire to arrive.
So till the next review
