It is a common misconception that resistance bands aren’t as effective as hand weights. People who believe this obviously haven’t tried using resistance bands and used them correctly. As you will see in ChaLEAN Extreme, high quality resistance bands when used correctly can offer results directly comparable with hand weights.
One of the first things you will notice when you do ChaLEAN Extreme is there is always someone on the DVD’s using resistance bands rather than weights. This is so that those of us who would rather not deal with lugging around hand weights know exactly how to get the same great workout. Throughout the workouts, Chalene makes a point to remind you that resistance bands will give you a good workout and will work your muscles the way you need them to.
High quality resistance bands come in a variety of resistance levels, ensuring that you always have the weight you need for every move. With someone on the ChaLEAN Extreme workouts showing you resistance band adaptations throughout, you are sure to get the same workout as those using handweights.
With ChaLEAN Extreme you are expected to “lift heavy” and lift slow. This means don’t be afraid to use a higher resistance with your bands. In order to get the same results, you want the same effort as with hand weights. Keep an eye on the adaptations as shown on the workouts and you will be certain to gain excellent results with the ChaLEAN Extreme system.
