Just wanted to say hi!! I am on week 3, day 2 of Chalean Extreme Burn Phase! Love this program! So far I am down 6 lbs since the start of the program! My goal is to build muscle as I am at my goal weight. I look forward to reading about your progress!

Well done butrcup! We're at almost the same stage. I'm just doing the circuits as I ride my bike to and from work for cardio and don't like hopping around in my tiny little apartment!

Completed Burn Circuit 2 today, I will be working tomorrow so I swapped tomorrow as my rest day! Burn Intervals and Ab Burner scheduled for Tuesday, the toughest one for me, but I am up for the challenge!

How did it go Butrcup?

I finished my last Burn Circuit 1 yesterday! I lifted as heavy as I ever have on the lower body (two 25lb dumbbells for the squat and side bend - even my boyfriend was impressed!). I'm looking forward to really challenging myself this week and trying to finish Burn with a bang!

Well freedomreins I'm back lol.

After one week off, I've decided to continue with Chalean. I'm doing one more week of burn and then starting push next Monday. I just ordered Powerblocks and hopefully they will come this week so I can use them for Push!

So looks like we should be on the same schedule.

Powerblocks are adjustable weights, they are a little more affordable then the Select Tech ones they use in the dvd.

Oh cool! I'm using my boyfriend's old ones, they go up in 5lb increments (really big jumps!) and the highest is 25lb (which is fine for now of course). They're really big though, I don't think they are meant for smaller hands! lol

I'm hoping to finish Burn tonight depending on my schedule. Can't wait!

Edit: Yay, I'm officially a Burn graduate! I'll start on Push on Friday.

Rock on karray!

I just finished Push circuit 1! I think I prefer it to Burn because it isolates muscles and sometimes I had trouble lunging or raising my hips or lowering my legs and doing something else with my arms at the same time. The workouts seem to go by quicker and I can definitely see myself lifting heavier because there's less reps for each exercise!

The V-Bicep curls are hardcore. Ouch!

Good luck finishing up Burn if you've not already reached Push, Karray!

Great job on finishing Burn and getting to Push!

I got my weights on Friday and will start Push on Monday, glad to hear the workouts go by faster.

Did Push circuit 1 today, and wow you are right freedomreins it is a nice change from burn. I am pretty excited about this month now and can't wait to see the other two circuits. Went a little too heavy on those V-bicep curls and realized very quickly I was going to have to go down on the weight.

Let me know how circuit 2 goes for you!

I was doing Turbo Jam & Power 90 for a bit, but felt I needed more. Then I saw Chalean Extreme, after thinking about it for a bit I decided to order it. [ I just realized I sounded like an infommercial]...I should be receiving it this week, very excited!

Hi Melokoton! I bet you will really enjoy the program.

I always would start this and get discouraged because my weight loss would stall and I would give up. You just have to give it a chance, this time I kept going and the scale started moving again after a couple of weeks. I feel such a difference in my body and feel like I am really getting stronger. I can't wait to finish the whole program this time!

I run 3 days a week and do Chalean 3 days a week with some elliptical time to reach my calorie burn target. Make sure to post when you start your program, good luck!

Welcome Melokoton! I hope you'll join us when you get your DVDs! I really like the program and I'm sure you will too. For the first time in my life I have muscles I can see and feel in my arms and my legs feel a lot tighter (especially in the backs of my thighs, the 'orange peel' area!). I love it! I haven't lost any weight but that isn't really my goal at this point and I am not doing the cardio videos since I cycle for cardio instead and I don't do Recharge since I go to yoga once a week You can totally make the program work for you, whatever your goals are!

Push Circuit 2 is a bit easier than Circuit 1, imho. I think my legs will be burning tomorrow though - lots of single leg exercises. Phew!! I miss Leiley, I liked how smiley she was. Glad you're on Push now as well Karray!
