The first video was 35 minutes long, so not too long where I got bored. They do have "basic" videos that help you learn the exercise techniques and how to use the resistance band correctly....I think I'll go back and watch those tonight. I did have a few issues making sure I had the band correct to 1 get enough resistance, and 2 keep it from flying off and hitting me!
How the program works is you have 5 exercise days and 2 rest days. Day 2 (which is today for me) and Day 7 are both rest days...so for me I will rest on Tuesdays (O's soccer practice day) and Sundays. I do these videos around 8pm once my babies are asleep.
The book recommended that you take before and after photos through the course of the program...so one set before, one set at 30, 60, and 90 days. They also recommended that you take these photos in a bathing suit, or minimal clothing. Since most of my workout attire is shirts and shorts or pants, I did the swimsuit.
And yes, as I'm typing this, I'm trying to figure out a way to not post these pictures for the world to see. What I hope to do with these videos is to tone my mid section and tone up my thighs. Being a soccer player, and now a runner, I've always had large legs, so if I can keep them firm and tight, I guess I'll just have to deal. Before my babies....I had one heck of a stomach (or lack there of)...it was my favorite part of myself....and now it's gone and my least favorite part of myself...but I have two precious babies to show for it.
Okay....enough procrastinating....here's me, before ChaLEAN Extreme...
