Starting Week 5 of Marathon Training and also week 1 of ChaLean Extreme Modified version, this was put together by someone at Videofitness.com due to the complaint from just about everyone that did the program as prescribed of shoulder problem, since just like most program it is shoulder workout heavy and if you progress with weights as you are suppose to the shoulders are just overworked and moreover I like this version better since it mimic Cathe's Xtrain workout of Burnset/Strength/Blast
After the 4 day weekend of food indulgence and alcohol it was with great trepidation that I got on the scale, oh well today is a brand new day, no leftovers and all the pies are gone.
Starting out with a bang with ChaLean Extreme Lean 3, this is short reps (12) with heavy weights but all compound movements, according to the website "LEAN Here is where you really
bring it home with new routines and dynamic moves that literally melt
the fat off' your body. You will be blown away with jaw-dropping results
and rewarded with a brand-new body! this is phase 3 in the program. For most people it probably ok to do the modified version, since you will be coming of another weight routine, first week may require dropping to a lower weight to get the muscle use to this type of movement.
After ChaLean, schedule called for 5 miles at base pace and after the initial struggle was able to get the whole 5 miles in, yeah me.
Felt great afterwards and even got to work on time, something rattling in my car, so have an appt schedule for tomorrow lets see what could be wrong now and how much am going to have to come up with.
