After doing a month of WiiFit I wanted to move onto something more challenging so I can mix up my exercise routine so I got a copy of Jillian Michaels’ 30 Day Shred. The DVD is divided into three workouts; Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3. All three levels are broken up into cycles of 3 minutes of strength, 2 minutes of cardio and 1 minute of abs combined to make a 20 minute workout, which including warm ups and cool downs takes 27 mins to complete. The idea is to do this workout every single day and if you do the DVD says you will lose 20 pounds. I’m skeptical about losing 20lbs in 30 days, but after doing the level 1 workout for the first time, this DVD will definitely deliver some weight loss results as well as some nice muscle tone.
I was actually surprised I made it the whole way through Level 1 without stopping. The push-ups were my main problem area as I just can’t do the proper ones so I had to do the beginner’s modified version. Also, I only had my 1kg dumbbells nearby and I really think I should be using my 2kg ones to really get into it.
I will try to do it every day for 30 days moving my way up through the levels just to see what results I can get, though I doubt I will lose 20 pounds. Has anyone else tried the 30 day shred? If so, what results did you see and did you do it every day for 30 days?
