10 Pound Slimdown Xtreme – Chris Freytag

Chris Freytag’s 10 Pound Slimdown Xtreme is her new fitness workout system offered through Exercise TV.  It is a total package that offers 13 workouts on 3 discs.  The way it is designed is that in 28 days you are supposed to be able to shed 10 pounds.  It is part deux of her original 10 Pound Slimdown and is for those who may have completed that and want to take things up a notch and push harder although you do not have to be familiar with the original package to do this one.  I would say this is an intermediate to lower advanced workout system (depending on how hard you push yourself and how heavy you go with the weights – the cardio kickboxing is an intermediate level however).  Chris offers a 28 day workout schedule you may follow to help achieve your goal.

You will need handweights for most of these workouts.  Sometimes you will need more than one set.  Try to use heavy so you can challenge yourself.

There are 6 Xtreme workouts – including Upper Body, Lower Body, Total Body, Cardio Kickboxing, Core and Yoga.  These workouts are roughly 40 minutes long and include four circuits.  Chris does a couple of movements and then a “Power” move and then repeats to end each circuit.  The Power move is a move designed to get your heart rate up and may include plymetrics or just dynamic movement.  She offers some modification for those who need it.

There are 5 Recovery workouts – these workouts are 20 minutes in length. There is recovery Upper, Lower, Total, Core and Yoga.  If you follow her schedule, sometimes you do a recovery workout on a regular Xtreme workout day.

There are 2 Bonus workouts for trouble zones like buns and abs. These are short 10 minute programs to be used as add-ons for an extra push to your workouts.

Along with the workouts, Chris offers a clean eating plan/guide for those who need some help with their nutrition.

I have been doing Chris Freytag workouts for years (since her Prevention workout days) and she is looking more ripped and better than ever!  She is the antithesis of say Jillian Michaels’ workouts. Chris doesn’t berate or bully you into getting in an extra rep or working harder – she offers cheerful motivation for that and her motto is, “YES YOU CAN!”

As and aside:  Since Exercise TV is now defunct online and OnDemand (it is completely out of business)  – you can still get Chris’ 10 Pound Slimdown Xtreme through QVC (www.qvc.com)
