Starting the 30 day shred tonight. Was at Wal-Mart last night and noticed it was less the 10 bucks so I said, "Why not???" So...any newbies want to ride with me?

I was just about to suggest that we start a 30 Days in November = 30 Day Shred thread. I'm going to attempt to make it 30 for 30 in November.

Hey, I just got the DVD today, so I'm going to start even though I'll be a day behind. :3 Are we keeping track here, or is there another thread somewhere?

Edit: I just did the my first day. It's a very good workout. I'm a bit afraid to see what level 3 is like!

I started yesterday, and like Dee, I'm shooting for 30 in 30! The first two days have kicked my booty, so I'm nervous but excited to see where it goes from here.

I didn't take into account the jumping jacks. My knees won't stand up to that many jumping jacks. I know Jillian says no modification, but I have knee problems from a car wreck in 2006. Since I'm already doing the C25K with additional cardio on my off days, I think I'm just going to march in place. I'll be calling my Physical Therapist tomorrow to see if they can suggest an alternative. It's funny that the running (on a cushioned treadmill, not asphalt) doesn't bother my knees, but Day 1 with the jumping jacks and I'm wearing my knee brace again. I think it's not the jumping, but the landing. ;)

Good Morning Ladies!

I just finished my 2nd workout (Phase I)- my legs & butt were sooo tight yesterday, I think that the stretches today have make it all better :dizzy:

Dee - on my BL video (Cardio Max), Bob suggested that if you can't do the jumping jacks, then to keep moving your arms, and alternate legs to the side out & in ("just keep moving + eventually you may be able to do the jj's") ... Hope this helps :)

Have a great day!! Stay strong!!

Dee, since Jillian isn't in person with each of us, I think you are ok to modify due to injury! Hurting yourself wouldn't help at all.

Did Day 3 this morning. I don't know if it was getting up 30minutes earlier than usual or the "day 3"ness of it, but I was pathetic this morning! Totally phoned it in, but at least I got up and did it at all.

Hey ladies! Nice to see so many of you doing this! Yeah...so, mine is still in the wrapper...Just had a crazy weekend...yeah yeah...just an excuse, but haven't done it yet. :( I actually have today off (OMG!) and I'm on my way downstairs to do week 6 day 3 of C25K. I attempted it on Saturday but didn't make it...so I'm doing that day over again. I will probably get Jillian out later today!

Ok ... I plead ignorance ... what's C25K ???

JamieJo
11-03-2008, 11:31 AM
Couch to 5K. :) There are threads on here for it. It's basically a program to get someone "from the couch who has never ran before" to running a 5K in 9 weeks. Love it so far. Week 6 day 3 was the first time I had to quit. :( So I need to do that day over. :) There really is a difference from running on a treadmill compared to running outside in the cold!!!

No kidding about the difference. Even though it's only gotten to the low 50s here in Florida this weekend, I could tell a difference, even when I was just walking. I'm been forcing myself to go to the gym and do my running days on a better quality treadmill. Starting tomorrow I'm on Week 4, and every week I have to psych myself up to try. I just keep chanting in my head "Believe in the C25K". If it's helped so many other people become runners, it's got to work. If I have to repeat every week from 4-9 twice, fine, but I'm going to at least attempt it.

I did day 2 yesterday. It's still tough and I can definitely feel it in my arms today. How are you ladies doing?

JamieJo

I did day one yesterday..BUT with one hand weight! I can't find my other one for the life of me....I need to go buy another one! I also completed week 6 day 3 of C25K! Dix - Keep up with it! At the start of each week I was like, there is NO way I'm going to make it through that next run...I did have to do day 3 of week 6 twice cuze of the outdoor change but it was fine doing it indoors. I think I am going to do week 7 through 9 a couple of times working up my time. :)

Really liked the first day of the 30DS though. It's a good toss up from the running program. I'm looking foward to doing it tonight! :)

Congrats Dixied! I hope everyone is doing well. I still can't get through the first level without taking a few breaks, but I'm hopeful! Day 3 is down!

Just finished Day 3 (Phase I) - definitely a lot easier than first 2 days! I seem to have more energy for skipping rope! My goal for tomorrow is to do more of the push-ups properly (I think you know what I mean..."butt down" LOL!!)

Have a great day everyone :)

I just bought the DVD today so I'm down to try! Im a little worried cause I thought Cardio Max was a bit rough on the knees, hope this one is better. :crossed:Im gonna try the first workout tomorrow. Heard nothing but good things about this DVD so I thought I would give it a whirl. It was a struggle to find it but after three stores I found one.:carrot:

I want to try this but seriously how hard is this work out?? I am WAY out of shape. Also what will I need?? weights?? a ball?? or nothing at all??

cher37
11-12-2008, 02:35 PM
Nichole... I'm actually doing the BL-Cardio Max DVD (all the stores were out of the 30 Day Shred) - same concept though (3 workout levels), 3-5 lbs hand weights are optional, and if the jumping jacks/air skipping rope are too much on the knees, they (Bob) give alternate moves.

Hope you join in!!!
