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.
