I got ChaLean yesterday , right after lunch. I've already previewed the first workout burn circuit 1 and thought it was different then what I'm use to. Charlene uses a heavy weight in combination with a slower rep speed to get the job done. Her form is different and the moves are compound moves (like a sumo squat in combination with a arnold press). Your suppose to reach failure at 12 reps. Im pretty sure i will be sore the next day, crossing fingers,lol.
I plan on previewing the other two workouts in the first phase (burn phase) then previewing the two cardio's on there. Those will be the only workouts that I will use during the first phase, the muscle building phase. I read the food guide and flipped through some of the recipes and I gotta tell ya, they looked mouth watering...super clean too. I contacted my Beachbody coach to make sure im understanding the calorie range on there, for a female at my weight it suggest eating 1400 calories a day. That seems awful low with the workouts...but then again, from what i understand, the workouts are only 35-40mins long. If 1400 is the goal then i will definitely be eating super duper clean...no room for junk. I plan on starting Monday.
Another good day in the books yesterday! I was right on target with 1464 calories ( myfitnesspal has me at 1480). Pretty darn good. I didn't workout -took it easy.
Today i feel like getting in a good workout. Not sure what yet..i will come back later and update. I hope my heart rate monitor reads correctly, lately its been giving me some really low #'s. I think it has something to do with my breathing..I still have some post nasal drainage in the back of my throat (sorry if that was TMI, hehe)
UPDATE: Finished Turbo Jam Fat Blaster workout for 30mins. Burned 240 calories. Anyways...had a good workout. I was able to keep up with Chalene's intensity too. All my food is logged in for the day and set at 1506. Thats 'purty good' LOL..
