Has anyone tried this? Any pros or cons? I'm looking just to follow the strength-training portion and not the cardio. I really like what I've seen so far (the moves, the instructor, the visuals) so I was wondering if anyone has tried it recently?

Thanks!

I got the answers to my questions and did the first circuit today. Definitely right up my alley - just have to invest in a set of heavier weights (15 and/or 20 pounders).

Hi Southern. Thanks for your post. Wow that's encourgaing to know. My favorite fitness person talks and talks and talks so I'm used to it! I don't care for the warm ups for some reason and will probably do my own. I love how the moves are nice and slow, how everyone goes at their own pace and the short breaks in between sets. Gives me a chance to catch my breathe, grab some water or take notes.

I did about 75% of "Burn Intervals" this morning. I was not going to attempt doing some of those moves like burpees that early in the morning, but I found the sets very effective.

If there's anyone out there doing this program and would like to join me in a challenge let me know.

I'm looking to do this program after I finish Insanity. I love Insanity but I miss lifting as well.

Hey strutter - I'm only on my 4th day so feel free to let me know when you're finished with Insanity.

I've completed Burn Circuit 1 & 2 and Burn Intervals so far and things are going really well. I'm using 5 and 12 lbs weights for now.

Hi Sunny and everyone! I was looking for a Chalean thread, so glad I found this one!

I started Chalean Extreme last week, so I'm in Week 2 and will be doing Burn Circuit 2 for the second time tomorrow (I do Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays). I love it so far. I have to admit that I hate her warmups too (glad to know I wasn't the only one lol).

I'm actually doing Insanity and Chalean Extreme simultaneously. I'm doing Round 2 of Insanity so I already know what to expect. So far so good! I invested in the SelectTech weights and good thing I did because I had no idea I'd be using as heavy weights as I'm using...and I notice my strength has increased from last week and I'm using heavier weights than previously for certain exercises.

I'd definitely like to join in on the Chalean challenge!

YAY! Hi angieand2girls! Wow Insanity & C.E. at the same time? That's impressive!!! Like you I have seen an increase in strength too, but I can all see more definition too and it hasn't been a week yet! I think it's the slow, steady movements with the heavier weights is making the difference for me.

Regarding the warm ups for me I think I figured out why I don't like them. They are too fast. I spend more time trying to keep up then doing the actual warm up. That defeats the purpose. lol

I have started a thread here:
ChaLEAN Extreme Challenge

Hope to see you (and anyone else who would like to join) there!
