What equipment do you need for ChaLean Extreme?
I plan on purchasing ChaLean Extreme and was wondering what extra equipment you need besides the what is included with the purchase. I own 5 and 10 pound dumbbells.

Thanks!

It sounds like once you get your CE set you've got what you need to start. Eventually you'll add heavier weights, but she teaches you how to make the most of what you have and make them feel heavier. Believe me, when she tells you that you can make 5 lb weights feel heavier, can make 10 lb weights feel like 20...yes, it's true. For what it's worth, I'm going into my 4th week with CE and I still can't use the 10 lb weights for a lot of the exercises. Good Luck!

My wife has done CLX and loves the program. The only thing you might want is some heavier weights for some of the leg lifts, otherwise with the weights you already have and what comes with the program you should be fine.

I plan on getting chalean extreme soon, I rather get weights over using the bands. I don't really like using bands. I don't own any right now so I am wondering what I should I have been looking at adjustable weights. but getting mixed reviews with the bowflex or the powerblocks. I know my local fitness depot has the powerblocks and they are reasonable price.

I am just wondering what I should start with.

i just had a set of 5 lbs dumbbells but knew it won't be enough and instead of going back to different sets of heavier weights, i just invested in select tech dumbbells, so i can adjust the weight anywhere between 5- 52.5 lbs.
i am in the last week of push phase and i have been lifting up to 22.5 lbs for some of the lower body exercises, and i know i will be strength training for a long while so, investing in select techs was the way to go for me.

Cant beat the SelectTechs, they are awesome! Before we got those a couple of years ago, I bought heavier bands and they worked too, but I found weights much, much easier for maneuverability and definitely made the leg work tougher! Keep an eye out for sales on them. Sometimes you can get a good deal on em.
