I'm not really new to strength training, but I started ChaLean Extreme last week. The program is designed to lift heavy and fail in a small amount of reps. The instruction is great (there's even one DVD dedicated to form training) and the moves are simple strength training moves with lower body moves (lunges and squats mostly) added in.

I have done the 30 Day Shred and also Insanity, which is another "use your own body weight" program. YMMV, but I did not get the fatigue and muscle burn in Insanity using my own weight that I did with lifting free weights. It was there, just not at the intensity that I like and most expect from using weights. They are both great programs and I got good results from them, but I really like CLX because it's primarily dedicated to lifting, which I LOVE!!
