Who is it for?
Graduates of any of our other programs, particularly 21 Day Fix. 21 Day Fix EXTREME is also ideal for anyone with an athletic background.
What are the differences between 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix EXTREME?
EXTREME is exactly like it sounds. It’s more intense. The workouts feature more variety and added resistance (even to Plyo). It’s just a heck of a lot tougher.
Are the Portion-Control Containers different?
Can I do 21 Day Fix EXTREME for multiple rounds or should I only do 1 round when I really need to tone up?
Absolutely! Do it multiple times, but give yourself a recovery week or so each time. The Countdown to Competition Nutrition Plan, however, is something you want to limit to 3 to 4 times a year at most.
Is there a modifier in 21 Day Fix EXTREME? Is Kat (the modifier from 21 Day Fix) back?
Yes! Kat is the modifier for 21 Day Fix EXTREME.
Is 21 Day Fix EXTREME a good program for guys? Will it help me build muscle?
Yes! There’s a ton of resistance training in 21 Day Fix EXTREME. But if you’re looking to add mass, make sure to increase calories. (Skip subtracting the 750 calorie deficit and add 500 calories instead.) Also, lift heavier.
I missed a week due to vacation/work travel/sickness. Where do I start?
Missing a few days is no big deal. Just jump back into your program where you left off. After about five or six days off, your body is fully recovered and very strong, and you actually have the ability to hurt yourself by breaking down your fast-twitch muscle fibers. This can make you too sore to work out for over a week.
If you’ve missed more than five days, start slow on your first day back, maybe doing a third to a half of your normal workout and ramp up little by little, taking about a week to get back to where you left off.
What is maintenance work?
It’s much harder to get into shape than it is to maintain that shape once you get there. You can generally maintain a level pretty close to peak fitness with about half the volume of your program.
To maintain, you can utilize many different forms of training but the easiest is often 3 to 4 days per week of the program you just finished. It will decline slowly over time, but you’ll probably start another program or activity to pick up the slack after a while.
