Slow lifting (weights) has been a concept around for quite sometime. Some people will actually perform reps that last 30 seconds a piece! While this snail’s pace lifting is effective, it’s quite a bit slower than what you will be doing with ChaLEAN Extreme. Focusing on slowing down your strength training is an excellent way of ensuring even and big results.
Think about watching people lift weights. You often see people at the gym doing moves like shoulder flys and lateral raises using their entire body. Their head bobs back and forth, their trunk dips and raises and they may even bend at the waist at certain points in the move. With ChaLEAN Extreme you will learn that this is not the way to get the most out of strength training.
The problem with using your whole body to do a shoulder fly, is you are relying less on the shouder! The muscle you are trying to work is getting help from all of the other parts of your body that are moving. You are using momentum to lift the weights rather than the targeted muscle. According to the ChaLEAN Extreme program, slowing this down and isolating the desired muscle group ensures that you are using “muscle instead of momentum”.
With any strength training workout, you want to be certain that the muscle you are targeting with a specific move is isolated and doing all of the work. If not, you are quite simply wasting your time. By slowing your pace and really focusing on the muscle you ensure that you will get the most effective sets. ChaLEAN Extreme does not rush through moves. While there aren’t any 30 second reps, the reps are slow enough that you isolate and focus, leading to much better results.
Getting the most out of any workout is important. With ChaLEAN Extreme you get an amazing workout time and time again, but you also get knowledge. Chalene Johnson makes sure you understand why you are lifting slow and why you are holding the form that you are. Knowledge is truly power when it comes to strength training and building an amazing body.
