Chalean Extreme + Turbofire + Brazilian Butt Lift???
If you've ever done three programs at once, please share your thoughts on this --

I've been doing Chalene Extreme and also throwing in extra Turbo Jam cardio workouts each day and on rest days. The past couple of days I've been debating about adding Turbofire in place of Turbo Jam. Now I've been looking at Before & After pix that have me wondering if I should do BBL instead of Turbofire...or trying to work in some BBL as well as the CLX & TF.

If my goal was maintenance, I wouldn't ask, but my goal is weight loss of 50+ pounds. I'm eating 1385 calories per day or less on days when I workout very hard, according to my LoseIt app. My BMR is about 500 calories more than that.

I'm just afraid that if I spread myself out across three different programs I might not get the best results from any of the three.

I work full time and have a family & home to take care of too, so I want to be realistic about what I can do!

Anybody care to share thoughts with me on this subject?? Is three programs spreading my efforts too thin?

Thanks for any thoughts or advice you can share!

Hey Debbie,

My daughter (Kalee username SoreyFitness) is also doing what you are asking about. I was going to hop on with her to do all 3, but I'm like you and have family, work, etc. So would it be too much? However, I'm trying to really only lose 10 pounds. so I have a little more play room to try. I've done CLX and TF and love them both. My suggestion since you don't want to spread yourself too thin and want to get the full benefit of the programs...I'd stick with one completely through the schedule and then maybe a hybrid of just 2 all the way through a schedule and then do a hybrid of the 3. My first choice would be CLX, then TF, then BBL. After you finish CLX and TF completely through each program, then you could do a hybrid of CLX/TF or hybrid of CLX/BBL if you're wanting to mix it up a little.

These are just my thoughts, but the programs were built to give you max results so I'd follow one all the way through at least once before mixing...unless you just get too bored. If you get bored, then you just want to quit. If it comes to that, start working in a hybrid of 2 programs.

Boy...I hope I didn't ramble too much to confuse!! Let me know if you have any questions!!

Hey Debbie!!

When I do those three together I usually do a HIIT workout on my CLX weight training days & semi follow the schedule of BBL. Semi follow meaning I just do High & Tight and Bum Bum as the schedule follows. I will shift them around so they are not on weight training days. I basically sub the Circuit workouts for sculpt. Hope this helps emoticon If you want to Buddy me you can see how I have set up my schedule. I will be starting it 5/14. I have a few small trips in there so I shifted the schedule around days I knew I would be out of town. I just like to make sure my daily workout times don't exceed 1 1/2 hour and on those longer days I may or may not split the workouts depending on my time schedule.

I did a combo of the three... I only used the high and tight from brazil butt lift and did clx 3 days following the lineup of the workouts and then just fit turbofire into that... it is deff a more advanced workout, but I usually did two workouts a day... about 1-1.5 hours... raelly a killer combo though! ROCK IT OUT!

Thanks Kim, Trina & Ashley - I really appreciate the feedback that you've given me! I think that since this idea would be very ambitious for me and I don't want to set myself up for failure, I will just stick to what I'm doing, although I do plan to follow your progress Trina, because when I get closer to my goal I may try it! I'll be sending you a buddy request.

I guess me thinking about doing 3 programs illustrates how anxious I am to see RESULTS. However, I know that I have to make lifestyle changes to lose the weight - didn't put it on overnight, can't take it off that way either.

Thanks again Ladies!!

Wow I have all 3 also including Les Mills Pump and I've been looking for a way to start all 3 since I finished TF in September. I also have Insanity but that's not for me. The 1st 3 weeks of the Hybrid TF & CLX is the recovery which for me it's been a long time since I last worked out so how do I start w/ recovery. I'd love a schedule of all 3 myself.

Hey Deulsenia!! Which 3 are you wanting to put in a hybrid? BBL, TF, and CLX or PUMP, TF, AND CLX. I agree...I have done Insanity, but it's really not my thing.
