For some time, I have been planning to add a weight lifting routine to my running. And for some time, I’ve been putting it off. I picked up ChaLEAN Extreme and got started, then promptly stopped after injuring my wrist while doing something other than working out (I’m still not sure how I injured it, but it didn’t seem to be fitness related).
So I’m back to the weight lifting. So far, so good. I really like ChaLEAN Extreme. Chalene focuses on heavy weights and slow movement. So you may only do a max of 12 reps, but those 12 reps are killer. It’s been a good addition to my running routine because it’s not cardio based – though there is an additional cardio workout as part of the videos.
I can’t say that I see any difference yet, but I’ve only been back to the program for four workouts! But I can definitely feel the workouts after I’m done. I just need to stick with the program this time.
