Does ChaLEAN Extreme Really Work?
The ChaLEAN Extreme workout consists of 15 workouts on six DVDs. The strategy behind ChaLEAN is expressed in three words: Muscle burns fat. According to them, to burn fat, boost metabolism and get lean you have to build up more muscle. And this workout promises that 60% of fat can be burned in three months with ChaLEAN Extreme. This is done by a technique called “Lean Phasing” they say. This refers to shifting focus on resistance training in five phases. Through these phases, they claim that lean muscle is built, metabolism is charged, and fat burns long after your workout, even while you sleep. Phase 1 is called Burn and it involves moderate weight lifting. Phase 2 is Push and it involves heavy weights beyond your comfort zone for fast results. Phase 3, Lean, brings whole new routines and dynamic moves. Phase 4 is Extreme Cardio, super intense and strength building plus flexibility. Finally at Phase 5 Core Power will shrink, tighten and tone the tummy.
