Lately I've been including Level 1 in my workout routine once a week. I started to consider it one of my 'easier' days in the week, e.g. I did it earlier this week when I had a cold and wanted a not so intense workout.
Today I finally did Level 2 and wow I was drenched!!! that short workout was more exhausting to me than her whole BFBM dvd! I had to take short breaks a couple of times and felt like at first, but now I'm strangely excited to have that new challenge in my workout especially the compound moves seem a lot harder than in Level 1!
I've been doing the shred for almost 3 weeks now (4 days into level 2) but I feel like my knees are bothering me a bit, anyone else? Should I stop doing the workouts?
I only did the shred for a few weeks I think and it really busted my knees. Took them about one year to recover :( But I've had problems with my knees on and off before that. I would find another exercise that doesn't rely on jumping so much if I were you. Knees are delicate body parts and not easily fixed.
Just searched this thread to see if I should try this dvd when I have knee issues. I bought the dvd but I think I am going to pass. Sounds like a lot of people did real well with it,but way to many people complained of knee pain. Anyone have a recommendation for a dvd that is not hard on the knees?
I love this workout! It is short but effective. Stick with it for 30 days and you will see results.If you follow a healthy eating plan you will get better results. This is one of the best Jillian Micheal DVD's and it get you real results fast. I did not follow a diet but did the workout for 30 days and saw a reduction in my waist, hip, thigh size and toned up my arms pretty good too.
I did the workout with 2kg weights. If you are new to exercise there is an option for modified versions of the tougher exercises.
This was the first JM DVD I bought and after the results I saw I am hooked and got more from her workout collection namely Ripped in 30, 6 weeks abs, no more trouble zones, shed fast boost metabolism and killer buns and thighs!
The workouts on 30 day shred are progressive and only 20 mins where you do 3 circuits. Every 10 days you move to the next level where the excercises become more intense. You get a full body workout and I think it is pretty good if your are short on time or starting out!
