Chalean Extreme “on the road workouts” Complete

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

Chalean Exteme, on the road workouts, Lean Phase week 3

Week three is now complete of the Lean Phase and doing my workouts “on the road”.

I ended up getting a little off schedule this week because of hurting my back, so had to take a few additional rest days, but am back at it now.

So for week 3, Lean phase 1 and 2 were done on the road and Intervals, Phase 3 and Turbo Jam Cardio Fat Blaster was done at home.
Because of my back I didn’t do the ab workout this week and with my schedule actually it was difficult even getting in all the workouts. I did the Turbo Jam Fat Blaster workout again instead of the cardio program again to change things up and also since it has 4 Turbo Intervals in it, I figured it would be a good thing to do to get ready for Turbo Fire.

For the Interval workout I was able to increase the speed for some of the intervals, so finished some of the exercises before the did on the DVD. In some cases did a few extra or took advantage of catching my breath a bit.

The rest of the regimen remained the same for the most part, Shakeology daily, and in fact on one day had 2 Shakes because of the way my schedule was running, used the recovery formula as needed, and had the protein bars on the road with me :)

So next week will be the last week of Chalean Extreme and will most likely change up one of the rest days for a workout day because of my work schedule.


So till next report at the end of Chalean Extreme,

Chalean Extreme, on the road workouts, Lean Phase Week 2

Week two is complete now of my “on the road workouts” of Chalean Extreme Lean Phase week 2.

The progression this week, was small but I feel there was some.
I once again varied the use of the resistance bands as needed to be able to keep the correct form, Lean circuit 2 the last exercise was one of those, along with the plank with single arm row I had to change a bit because of using the bands and it hurting my hand when doing this to not use the band and just did the single arm plank and row without the band.

Lean Circuit 3 I was fine with using the dumbbells since I was home and the push up side planks was able to get out the additional push ups that I fell short of last week.

As mentioned in the last blog, I changed up the Burn It Off workout for the additional workout included Turbo Jam Fat Blaster. I actually like the change up of the workout as the Burn It Off was starting to get “old” and the Turbo workout is only 30 min.

I’m down to two weeks left of the Lean Phase and will be working hard to keep the muscles toning.
As before I’m keeping up with my Shakeology regimen since seeing the benefits of it for me and on the harder days still using the
P90X Recovery Formula, but only have been using 1 scoop and it seems to be doing the trick. Also still having a P90X Protein bars for snacks but limiting it once a day and been having a little more fruit snacks this past week.

Next week I have some training for work I have to do so should be able to get in the workouts, and may just change up the time the workouts are done depending on the time I get up since I won’t be getting in at late hours.

So with two weeks to go in this phase we’ll see how it goes.

Till the next review
