How long are the ChaLEAN Extreme workouts?

How long are the ChaLEAN Extreme workouts?

When starting a new workout program, one of the most frequent questions I get asked: How long are the workouts? Or, How long do I have to work out? I personally like the length of the ChaLEAN Extreme workouts. As you can see below, the longest workout, Burn Intervals, is just barely over 45 minutes in length. Followed next by Lean Circuit 1, at 45 minutes.

As a general rule, you spend under 5 minutes doing a warm up before exercise. And then approximately 3-5 minutes for a cool down. The main part of the workouts are around 30 – 35 minutes. You can do anything for 30 minutes! In all the ChaLEAN Extreme workouts, Chalene Johnson targets multiple body parts, thus effectively combining muscle groups. This in turn shortens the workout to a near perfect length.

If you find yourself wondering during a workout, “How Much Longer?”  Just look at the bottom right of your television, there is a count down timer.  Better yet, if you are keeping up with Chalene Johnson, your rep count is also displayed.

So if you’re just starting out, ChaLEAN Extreme is a perfect choice. You are not expected to last through an hour or longer, grueling workout session. And now that the workout length of each workout is shown below, you can effectively plan your day and schedule, knowing in advance how much time you will need to get in that workout!

On the flip side, if you are a fitness fanatic, and are looking for a change, you can rest easy. Since I have personally completed Power 90, P90X (eight times), and P90X plus. Throw in a few Turbo Jam workouts, 10 Minute Trainer, One on One with Tony Horton, and about everything else Beachbody has on the market, I proclaim myself as a self proclaimed fitness fanatic. I am in my first round of ChaLEAN Extreme and love it. Nothing says you can’t do more, you have options. But I wholeheartedly believe, that doing the ChaLEAN Extreme program as written, will get you in great shape!

    I just ordered Chalean Extreme tonight, I’m currently almost finished with my 2nd round of Insanity and well I’m not getting the results I want with it, yes I’m losing inches but I need to lose more weight (got at least another 40 to 60 to go, lost 45/47 so far since October 2011) Hoping I love Chalean Extreme as much as I love Insanity (yes I do love the workouts but want more results lol) so glad the workouts are going to be shorter lol
